Oldskool Hardcore Rave (3/10) - 19-12-19
It seems that the only type of music I'm finding currently on Soundcloud is Oldskool Rave music. Am I complaining? Nope, not really. I am really excited to find mixes that contain 'new' music to my ears. And seeing as I wasn't around during the heydays of UK Rave music, I have got a lot to catch up to. The other day I found a mix containing more than 130 records in an hour long mix, today it's a mix with 40 records, mixed into two hours and 10 minutes long mix. All 91 and 92 anthems. It's like we are having another Christmas day: every day we find new treats!
This mix was made by Craig Scott. Unknown to me, I delved straight into the mix. This DJ has got over 30 years of mixing experience in him, so this mix should be good. Not sure if the tracks were good, half of these are unknown anthems to me. But truth be told: it's Oldskool Rave music, this should NEVER be bad. I've not come across any old Rave anthem which was bad, or unlistenable. Is unlistenable even a word? Well, not when it comes to Rave anthems. I can't find any that sucked. They are all wicked, and part of our rich Rave history.
Anyway, it's time to show you the tracklist. So, as I mentioned before, it's 2 hours long, and got 40 anthems in it. Not a megamix, thankfully. One megamix per week is enough for me. Now we get full lengthed anthems. And you might know each and every anthem. Go and have a butchers!

This was a very pleasant mix. I've really enjoyed it. From the first to the last second it took me back to the early 90s, when Rave music was so damn good. Craig Scott, your mix is tight. And highly enjoyable!
So many classics in here. That nostalgic sound just brings smiles for miles. I cannot express what the secret is behind these anthems, and you do hear that they are quite oldskool. But they still keep it sounding fresh. I can still enjoy it, even in 2019/2020. The Oldskool sound will never die, and will always remain appreciated. Even by those who were too young to understand it.
You might be thinking that 2 hours is too long, but it's long enough to enjoy it. As I mentioned before, I'm not aware of at least 50% of the records used in this mix, but I have to say that none of these anthems were boring, or unexcited. Craig's mix is just what we needed on the 28th of December. Christmas is finally over, let the Oldskool sound re-emerge again! Goodbye Mariah, it's time for the Oldskool Rave to be on the radio again!
A very tight mix. Got no negative comments or negative feedback, only positive ones. Brilliant mix, brilliant tunes. Everything's good about this mix. Get this down ya, right now!
Ps. I couldn't download it from theartistunion.com, this is due to the server being offline? Maybe you all can try later and download it!
