I was very much into the first wave of rave as a young producer and a budding dj in the late 80s but it was always a complimentary side piece to my love of the industrial electro, and freestyle, and house, and your mum. I never bothered with the synthetic drugs. As such I am gleefully unashamed of the time period and a festive mix like this makes me happy thinking of long drives with my lady person rocking sweet mix tapes. Multiple decades on, I’m greatful we can still do that. Time is a relentless bastard, stay vertical out there.
