Rave - Scots Style

Around about the end of 1991 beginning of 1992, 2 distinct camps were forming amongst my friends into dance music some of us were embracing progressive house and the slower bpms while others were getting into the much harder sounds coming out of the Rave scene and stuff coming from the continent and the Netherlands in particular. I think that a lot of this had to do with the less pure MDMA and the greater use of speed within this group.

As I've said before I was generally not into this type of music. One track however that I did quite like was Energy Rush by Suburban Delay which I bought at the time as it was the first release on Clubscene records an off shoot from a free club listing and review magazine distributed around Central Scotland. This track was first released in 1992 and was later re-released with a terrible vocal track over the top.

Please forgive the crackles on the rip, this was a track which I used to stick on to placate the cheesy quavers in the pub where I worked at the time and ended up having to be played at least once every night.

It's funny the links with drugs and music. This kind of track is the sort of thing that was accompanied by the smell of poppers round our way. Have to say it's a branch of dance music that did absolutely nothing for me...
