    hi guys

    A big shout to the Smiling Corpse crew for asking me to take part in their long-running Dead Happy Podcast series. I was of course delighted to take part, especially because by a funny coincidence this was both episode 23 of the series as well as volume 23 of my own Rampage Turbo series. Since I have a pretty comprehensive collection of freeform vinyl, I was asked if I could provide a bit of a history lesson in the freeform sound, and I was very happy to oblige!

    What you have here is 100 minutes of some of the finer tunes from the early days of the freeform sound – basically, these were the building blocks behind what we enjoy today. I didn’t want to just repeat Bonkers 2 to 5, so with this mix I really tried to dig a bit deeper, which is why there is everything from pitched-up hard trance from X-Cabs and Jon the Dentist to Choci’s unique brand of acid trance madness and early tunes from Kevin Energy and Sharkey, as well as some of the lesser-known releases from labels like Digital Beats and Bonkers. Hopefully this gives you a coherent overview of the evolution of this music that is, at the same time, also completely fucking rocking.
