RAVE ALARM - HOLD TIGHT ALL PIRATES Vol. 1 (2023)


I like finding new stuff on Soundcloud extremely interesting. And today's mix is certainly a concept I've not heard before. As most of you know, I did not grow up in the UK. I only moved here roughly 7 years ago, so I missed out on a lot of good things. In the Netherlands we had pirate radio stations, but it was not as big as it was in the UK. Well, it could have been, but maybe I just never paid attention? I did listen to a few back in the 90s, but it never captured my interest. What did captured my interest, is the mix by RAVE ALARM. And it's a cool concept.

Brand new tracks, with snippets from the good old days, when pirate stations were everywhere. They might still be around, but I never listen to the radio anymore. And what surprised me, is that there's a compilation out there, that has got those adverts from the 90s! Someone actually spent the time recording them, saving them, in case they were required in the future. They came in very handy, when making this mix.


I am still fairly new to the Rave Breaks scene, but what I can say, is that I love the sound. And this mix is filled with awesome Breakbeat anthems, And the mix is filled with new anthems. Tracks that do take me back to the 90s. Very refreshing, uplifting, and all in all, cool anthems. I can just picture these anthems at raves all over the country. Excluding the radio adverts though: if there's one thing a raver doesn't want to hear at a rave, it's adverts!

I loved this mix a lot. The tracklist didn't move me a lot, as probably 99% of the artists are unknown to me. But what I have to say, is that there's one name on here, which I find the best name for a DJ ever! Can you guess which one? It's DJ Absolutely Shit of course! What a blinding name! You would be honoured to have Absolutely Shit on your flyer haha.


The mix is tight. Different from your standard mixes, but I love it. My wife is currently sitting next to me, and she even asked me if we were listening to a pirate radio station! And she's absolutely NOT into rave music. That's an achievement to me.


RAVE ALARMs mix is dope as fuck. I really enjoyed it, but the main reason why I listened to this in full, is the opening track. That track is just fire! Boy, to open a mix with THAT track, you know it is going to be a good/excellent mix.


A wicked concept, and can't wait to hear more! Bring on the second instalment!
