Week 30: The Year in Rave — 1993
I’ve done a few of these rave / jungle /happy hardcore tapes already, and here is another. I should’ve probably called it “the year in UK rave”, because there aren’t any non-British tracks on here. For those unfamiliar with the whole story arc, 1993 was the year that UK rave really developed into what we would recognise as jungle and happy hardcore. I’m really into stuff from this transitional era, when those two genres existed side-by-side, before they really split from each other. Here’s a tape of my fave tunes.
