DSF55 Production Competition - '92 to '94 A Rave Odyssey

DSF55 IS HERE AND WE’RE GOING WAY BACK

Ok so for this competition you are to create a track that pays homage to the golden era of UK hardcore, the sound of 1992 to 1994. Think Helter Skelter, Dreamscape, Vibealite, Fantazia, Evolution, 4 to the floor, hyper breakbeats, mentasm stabs, green lasers, strobes, speed & E’s, the Frankenstein’s monster of Happy Hardcore & Jungle before it all split and fractured.

There are many sample packs floating around so I won’t bother with a sample pack of my own.
Use what you got, what you found, what you stole.

Rave safe.



Genre: the golden era of UK hardcore from 1992 to 1994
Tempo: 140-165
Deadline: 25th August - (all subs to be public soundcloud links PM’d to me)



Inspiration:

Fuck the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act

So to clarify there no restrictions on sounds, we can use synths and samples.
Any bpm restrictions? I’m not familiar with the genre at all so I’m gonna have to do some listening lol.

Thanks for providing some tracks

160+ isn’t really old hardcore speed is it? Can we did down to 140+?
Some of the examples post are around that speed

BPM range should be lower. The tracks on that Reinforced mix are in the 140’s to 150’s.

The first part of the mix at least. It started speeding up to the 160’s around the time Jungle started forming out of Hardcore.

Yeah 140 to 165 is probably better. OP amended.

Anyone got the Hot Pants break?
I don’t have it for some reason

Yes, but you need to go to the hot pants van to get it.
