The Prodigy, Altern8, Stakker, DJ Carl Cox, Rhythm on the loose and more.
Recorded in Rotherhithe during the first half of 1996, I was 20 years old at the time. This was mixed on Soundlab decks so the quality is pretty decent. I decided to put together a mix of all my favourite hardcore / rave vinyl from the previous 5 years. Most of the tracks are from the golden era of 1991 to 1993 but there a couple of later tracks in there too, the most 'recent' being "Firestarter" by The Prodigy from 1996. Whether that track really qualifies as 'hardcore' is perhaps debatable - I think Liam Howlett was using terms like "hardcore street music" to describe his output at the time. Anyway, who cares?! Enjoy! These tunes are absolute classics from arguably the best ever time in UK music history. Somebody please hurry up and invent a time machine......
