dont miss an old skool bargain!!,
This review is from: Essential Old Skool Hardcore (Audio CD)
if you have clicked on this album then theres only one thing to say BUY IT!! At less than three quid for a used example or under a score for a new copy this is seriously good value and not another cheap comp full of filler or "nu rave" remixes. Anyone who was there back in the day will remember donovan "bad boy" smith as a leading name on the early uk rave scene and his set delivers big time with a nice mix of breakbeat and 4 beat classics, including the rarely featured trip to the moon part one (instead of the usual part two) from acen. In true old skool style the mix is varied as well with styles ranging from rolling breaks to happy style to a more techno influenced style.. after all back then it was all just hardcore!
if you are new to the scene this is an excellent representation of the the glory days of hardcore/breakbeat and if you were there this will take you back with a big smile on your face..... HANDS IN THE AIR!
