1991 to 1994 Old Skool Rave / Hardcore Mix - Mickey Beam (2022)

Let's go back in time. Back to the years 1991, 1992, 1993, and 1994. Back to the days when Rave/Oldskool was the dopest sound on Earth. You couldn't go to a party without rave music being played out loud. It was still a bit of an underground sound/style, but it was going to gain traction, and it gained a lot of fans when it emerged from the darkest depths of the underground. I was only a youngster still (in 1991 I was 8 years old), so I did not experience this as much as others have, and by others I mean older people. People who were born way before 1983. Too young to have experienced it, but now I'm not too old to enjoy it as much as the ravers did back in the day.

The mix you are about to listen to, was made by Mickey Beam. And this isn't the first Mickey Beam mix I've ever encountered. His Soundcloud channel is filled with oldskool mixes. But we are not here to discuss his older mixes, but only his most recent one. And it's a glorious one. If you are into the early rave/Hardcore sound, you will be pleased. Trust me. I might have been too young to understand the music when it was hot, but now I've gained a bit of experience and knowledge, and I know this is all good for you. Who needs medicines when music is the answer to everything?

I still have a lot to learn, but what I do know, is that the music is fantastic. Not just the tunes selected for this mix, but the music in general. Mickey Beam selected a handful anthems, an mixed them together nicely. By just glancing at the tracklist, my interest peaked. Only know a handful of the names, but even though some artist names are unknown to me, I would like to hear the records they made. Why? Well, it's freaking oldskool/Rave music. Who would say NO to that?

  22. Rhythm Section - Future

The tracklist might not gain as much hype as Mickey Beam might have expected, but it's all about the music, and that gets a big plus from me. I'm very bad with names and titles, but that all fades into obscurity once I hear those glorious beats, basses and melodies come at me.

I really like the tracks Mickey has selected. Some known, some unknown (to me), but it's all about the general feeling this mix generates. And I am sitting here, content with everything and everyone, and that's all down to the mix. This mix has put a smile on my face, and made me wish I was old enough to rave my ass off. Why were my mum and dad so late with doing the deed? Could they have not done it in 1977 or something?

A lot of excellent Breakbeat Hardcore, Jungle, Rave anthems. You'll appreciate it as much as I have, if you just press play, and close your eyes. Could ask your other half to turn on the stroboscopes, and pretend it's 1992. Open the windows, so you feel a bit nippy (you get the outdoor sensation). And if you turn the speakers all the way up, you might be back in 1992.

I've got nothing negative to say. Another wicked mix by Mickey Beam! Go and check it out!

Oh, it's also available to download. So why not do that too?

Best record? It was hard, but 'Future' by Rhythm Section. Glorious track. Absolutely glorious!
