Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat – 30+ of the Best Old Skool 90s Rave Tracks

Make some noise!

Just after the acid house movement at the start of the 1990s came the rave and free party scene.

It was a time of putting aside our differences, coming together and having a f**kin’ good time. The government and media didn’t understand it and they were scared shit of it and tried everything they could to stop it.

It was anti-establishment and it was a scene for us – the jilted generation. It was a time of rave which went into hardcore, then into jungle and drum ‘n’ bass. It was a time before the shitty term ‘EDM’ was used to categorise all dance music. A time before DJs became sellouts and a time before ghost producers. They were good times and most importantly it was about the music.

Here’s a mix up of over 30 classic rave tracks from those trippy days for you to listen to. Do you remember any of these bangin’ tunes?

Grab your white gloves, bomber jacket and whistle and let’s reach for the lasers and break down those walls!
