Ha, it came as a slight surprise to me as I don't remember being one. Must have been looking after it for someone else...

In my defence, a) I was 16 and b) everyone else was doing it (I did at least swerve the mass cliff jumping later on)

And if you go to 1:05:35 you'll see a 16 year old Womack and his mate. I'm the one doing the wanky dance. A bit of early cultural appropriation of the Haka? I can remember getting filmed, but never saw the video (we used to get the tape packs if we could afford them), bit odd seeing it after 22-and-a-half years.
f**king hell :lol:

That's amazing - nice to have that bit of dance music history featuring yourself.

I'm both glad and sad that there were no camera phones in the mid 90s when I used to be part of the house "scene"

Horrors to recall would have included various tight shiny t-shirts and wearing sunglasses inside.

In the mid-90s there was a slightly snobby more dressy attitude, so taking shirts off and blowing whistles were seen as a bit "rave".

I stopped going out as much as the "Crasher kid" thing took over Sheffield in the late 90s/early noughties and whistles and glow sticks started coming back, as demonstrated below and not featuring me, for clarification.

Loads of people I knew a bit as a kid, used to go on about going to raves up north. This would have been the early 90s.

It all seemed cool and underground (and a bit scary) but I never went to any.

At the time, the charts - the charts still being big and important in those days - had all sorts of "rave" in them.

SL2 - on a ragga tip, Prodigy - charly, Ratpack - Searchin' For My Rizla

I was a proud owner of the album "Rave 92" https://www.discogs.com/Various-Rave-92 ... ase/106982

The track that takes me back is 'Shades Of Rhythm - Ecstacy' - the bit where it kind of starts after 44 seconds for me is the seminal "rave" sound.....

Speaking of rave/jungle, here's an interesting vid about the "Amen break"

"one of the most sampled breaks of all time"

There's a clip in the documentary I linked above, of Derrick May explaining how he came up with the piano riff for strings of life.

Can't remember exactly what he says but something about walking around his flat "nekkid"

I haven't watched this particular YouTube version but at first glance this seems to be all 3 programmes on one video link (eg the original televised version was 3 episodes).

Starts with Disco, house in Chicago and New York, Summer of Love in the UK and so on.

I'd love to have experienced the Warehouse in Chicago or the Paradise Garage in NYC. Despite knowing about it I was also too young for the proper rave generation, but still think I caught a bit of a golden age in the mid-90s.

Go and find "How clubbing changed the world" on YouTube. Incredible.

You might need a VPN to view, but it's worth the effort.

Need the boards advice here. Heading out the weekend for one of my 4/5 clubbing nights I get to go to these days.

Choice between New Jackson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnY8OrNZs9s - good music but probably a bit light for my tastes or Endlec https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmVn7VgPthQ Good techno but probably a bit more banging than I like.

I’m sure its been done before at some point but a mate recently introduced me to the Tron Legacy:Remastered album that apparently Daft Punk just picked all the best remixes of their songs from the movie.

Holy shit, its a serious piece of music :thumbup:

First single I ever bought was House Arrest by Krush, which Google tells me was 1987 which would have made me 10 years old.

I'm quite proud of this, because listening back to it now not only does it cement my dance music credentials, but it sounds very much like the sort of music you'd have listened to on Chicago radio stations like WBMX (It was probably massively ripped off from those radio stations).
