    One of the best oldschool DNB tunes ever made, takes you on a journey, a real musical gem.

    Yeah dude, it’s a well old tune (1992), but it’s a belter. That ‘Can’t beat the system, go with the flow’ sample’s been used time and again since and probably always will be. There used to be a sick little clip on youtube that I can’t find any more, of it being mixed into force mass motion’s ‘feel the panic’, which is on the first few pages of this thread if you’ve not heard it before – wicked bouncy techno tune man.

    Yeah i thought i’d heard that sample before, sure is a banger though. The video you posted of feel the panic was taken down.. so i found this one (below) and i have to say i like it, reminds me of Scott Brown – Now is The time for some reason. There ain’t not school like the oldschool!
    According to the comments this version is sped up.. but i like it at this speed, a lot of energy.

    edit; okay i listened to what i think is the original version and it is also a banger.. i think i might even prefer the original speed.

    Sounds great at both speeds to me too dude, I think the slower one just edges it for me, but great tune regardless.

    I found that I prefered old skool when I was a teen. mainly cos hardcore was in that lost phase where it didn’t really know what it was anymore. I think it has hot a bit of a dead end again to be honest

    TBH although the music is good there is a tendency to idolise especially the early 90s rave scene, it really wasn’t as fun as made out to be nor as accessible unless you were already in the business or middle class and had a fair bit of cash.

    Also I saw way too many people destroy themselves on drugs through lack of knowledge as we had no way of sharing stuff honestly before sites like partyvibe existed, and the time when it was briefly put up with by the Blair government was actually barely a few years before it all fucked up and everything was pushed back underground.

    Todays EDM scene might not be as big and is subject to more controls from outside authorities, but it is way easier to participate in and contribute to and to share media of what we have created.

    These four always stand out in my mind.

    Solar Stone’s jig/interpretation of the Orange Theme still makes me weak and gives me a sober little rush.

    I agree with what you say but i think the EDM scene is much bigger today for the reasons you stated – it’s a lot easier to participate in and to share what people produce (which is also easier) and there are many ways to get your music out there..

    working out “how big” the scene is can be confusing as genres change or cross over (what has happened to trance is a good example) and it depends whether you are comparing just the music or the amount of events and parties.

    10-15 years ago there would be both legal EDM events and outdoor/warehouse parties nearly every weekend not just in London but in Reading, Maidenhead, Bracknell, Southend, Basildon, Colchester and Ipswich, supported by local record shops, pirate radio stations and other projects going on, but by and large the DJ’s were playing the same records from the same sources (hence the rise of superstar DJ’s and producers).

    Today the provincial events have mostly been stopped due to anti-drugs backlash (and the same has happened in other European nations, even Holland) so the bulk of interaction is happening online with a smaller but dedicated group of people partying around London and other big cities but there is definitely way more music being produced and shared than ever before. Another big change is being able to share with folk in foreign countries thanks to broadband..

    A lot of todays underground dance fans are listening to their music in smaller groups which they are getting online via soundcloud or online radio stations….

    Hmm i see what you’re saying i guess – but is this directly due to a lack of interest in the scene, or lack of money for people to actively partake in the scene as they used to as times were better economically then?
    Though i do think there is a general drop of interest in the EDM scene, or at least the EDM scene around me, has declined some what.

    I think there is more EDM music in general out there than ever before though, with so many genres there really is something for everyone.

    I don’t think its even money, the old skool scene started in worse economic times and even with the economic depression, younger people aged 16-45 often have much more money than in 1990 or 2000. its also cheaper to produce EDM music than any other genre and requires less space/resources unlike a band where folk usually have to rent rehearsal space.

    its more due to a lack of venues for performances of all kinds of music, and a backlash against rowdy booze/drug fuelled events. today even a guitar bands gig is only begrudgingly tolerated if it ends at midnight or maybe 01:00 max and even then they are calling 999 if the music is just a few minutes over curfew. if you want to put on a dance event its hard to find venues and when illegal ones happen people actually complain to the Police if they don’t shut them down with riot cops.

    The remaining late night townie venues are heavily controlled and punters are basically paying in either the entry fee or drinks costs for the coppers and bouncers what nanny and control them but these are actually needed to stop people killing one another.

    Also the economic depression hasn’t made music fans any less willing to participate but it has made people what don’t like late night partying a lot more judgemental against those who do, perhaps because they feel they are subsidising the cost of clearing up after these events and/or booze/drug addictions in their taxes. Stuff like mephedrone and the “shameless” culture of what some (not all) younger people put up to social networks doesn’t help matters.

    A lot of people below 35 won’t know that nightlife after midnight simply didn’t happen in many towns until the early 1990s and the rave scene (and then attempts by the breweries to co-opt it and get people drinking for longer hours, with predictably unpleasant results). Pubs and clubs shut after midnight and if you were still on the streets the cops would find some excuse to search you and/or nick you if you showed any dissent.
