About the show

Two weeks ago I posted a mixtape about rave music in '92, and briefly mentioned the existence of a more hardcore side of the scene. These guys were really pretty much over Belgian techno and Italian piano house, and were much more interested in incorporating hip hop and reggae influences into the music. What you got was a very distinctly British form of hardcore rave that was faster, more bass-heavy, and more breakbeat driven than anything that had previously existed in the electronic dance music world. Originally it was just called "UK hardcore" or "hardcore breakbeat techno" or some combination of those words; by late-'92 people were calling it "jungle music". In the next 18 years it would evolve into Drum & Bass, Happy Hardcore, Speed Garage, 2-Step, Grime, Dubstep, and UK Funky (just to name the big ones).

So here's a tape of all my fave UK tunes from '92 that bridged the gap between 1991 and the dance music world as we know it. Enjoy!
