No Frills - Just Good Music Vol 2 - Oldskool Rave Vinyl Mix - Chase Water (2022)

Today we go back in time. To the glorious rave days. The early days. And when I say Rave, I do mean it. The early 90s sound that emerged out of nowhere, and took the world by storm! The sound that embraced us all, and has left a mark in the dance history for years to come. And those wonderful years has given us many memorable songs, and the mix you are about to listen to, is packed to the max with those awesome tunes. How did I find this mix? Well, by accident!

Not familiar with the DJ who made this mix (Chase Water), but only know how awesome his latest mix is. Thankfully it has come with a tracklist, so I can share with you all the excellent tunes selected for this hour and a half long set. And he's got a point: no frills, just good music. And judging this tracklist it seems that Chase Water did just that. The tunes are excellent, and there's no mucking about. He doesn't take any prisoners, and from the first second you are caught in the web, the Rave web!

I wasn't ready for this yet, when I started my PC up this morning, but I've certainly embraced this mix a lot. You cannot just skip this mix, knowing what's being played, right? If you look at the tracklist, how can you just ignore these bad boy tunes, and just move on? That's blasphemy! And this is the second instalment of this mix series, imagine what the first mix' tracklist looks like?

So, without wasting any more time, let's show you the tracklist:

  27. Acen - Close Your Eyes (The Sequel) (Remix II)

  28. DJ Seduction - Live Together

  29. Liquid - Sweet Harmony (Original Mix)

This is a very big tracklist, with a few big hitters, and a few versions of tracks I've never heard before. But all in all, the big tracks are in here. And even though I've not checked the first mix by Chase Water, I bet it's going to be filled with 'similar' songs, big dancefloor anthems too!

The selection is great. I really enjoyed it. Big tracks by big names in the Rave scene. Some have faded into obscurity, but their legacy remains. You can play these in 2022, but also in 2088, and the world would still rave their socks off. This was (and still is) groundbreaking, and gave us a glimpse into the future of Dance music, what was to be expected. And these songs selected by Chase Water were all played from vinyl.

Got only love and appreciation for this mix, and I'll surely will check out the first instalment in a minute, after I've finished this review. But if you want to go back to the 90s and be on a trip down rave lane, jump on this mix!
