Those naughty Flash Cats are back with another EP of Old Skool Nu Skool goodness! You may have seen this about,it's on sale now,and if you don't know - it's time to get to know!


(Rate: 7/10)

Come Inside starts with the classic piano chords from an 80's pop track and some well known 90's Rave bootlegs! With lush build ups and filtered breaks,dropping into an awesome bouncy bassline that accompanys the piano nicely as it filters back into the track.Nice breakbeat rolling under the punchy kicks and snares. Then it's back to that big pianoline again with the titles "come inside" vocals,another build up,this time longer and teasing you more before the bass drops back on you!The bass and the piano both playing nicely together before switching to a bouncy bassline that accompanies the ol skool stab. This is a well made class happy nu skool roller!

This is by far the stand out track on the EP,revisiting a great and underplayed old skool underground anthem. track starts off with nice breakbeats before the punch and snare come in with that classic stab riff! classic vocal playing on top before dropping into that classic and dirty bassline! playing with the bassline enough to give it a modern sound but keeping that old skool vibe! Rolling into OMG!- that classic piano and vocal riff,this is proper hairs on the back of your neck business here! Back into that stab with a nice low sine sub before the dirt and the beat kicks back in,some nice playing with the vocal as a stab here also.Back into that hands in the air piano and vocal!rolling out to the end with the breaks this is a real feel good tune!

Rate: 6/10

Nice stabby bassline with classic breakbeats rolling until the sub and kick/snare combo drop.Rolling along into a crazy old skool riff then into a stabby bassline and old skool stab,drops into a lush old skool pad section with following sub and half tempo beats until after the snare roll kicking back in with the breaks ard a razor bass! Brings the stabs back and then returning to the original stabby old skool bassline and breaks rolling out to the end.

Overall a must buy EP of quality well made Rave tunes,Gotta Release and Come Inside especially making this EP essential. Tried and tested this does damage on the dancefloor!I've been dropping the tunes in my sets and they go down. I eagerly await the next lot of goodys from the Flash Cats as it seems they have pure fyah yet to release on us all!

Overal rating: 7/10

Gareth Monks - Untitled EP [Available Now From Dark Til Dawn Records!!!]

1/ Feeling High.
2/ Defunked.
3/ Aura.

Frequent Strictly NuSkool Blog musical contributor Gareth Monks joins forces with the Dark Til Dawn Records label to bring you the 'Untitled EP'. Three deep, dark and moody jungle/D&B tracks to unsettle your speakers.

Gareth sets the ball rolling with the hardstepping 'Feeling High' which sets the mood with ominous synths and Funky Mule breaks alongside jazzy keys and female vocals extorting 'I'm feeling high'. A top blend of light and darkness.
My personal favourite, 'Defunked' drops next in a 1993, darkcore-style with timestretched metallic breaks, rapid-fire stabs, rumbling bass over a 'Humpty Dump' break. A minimalistic track with deep and dark undertones.
The 'Untitled EP' closes with the epic 'Aura', a heavy slab of current drum & bass with junglistic undertones throughout. The track is opens with dubby, reverbed piano stabs before launching into a solid 2-step breakbeat accentuated by soothing string sections which morph into a moody, twisting synth melody on the latter part.

The Gareth Monks 'Untitled EP' perfectly combines 3 massive drum & bass monsters for both the mind and the feet. An essential addition to any junglists' collection.

Gareth Monks 'Untitled EP' is available to download now from the Dark Til Dawn Records Bandcamp webstore for the bargain price of $1 (approximately £0.64 UK money), or more if you wish to support the artist and label...

[KFA70] Dj Luna-C - Almost No Spiders, Guaranteed EP (Executive Edition) [Out Now On Kniteforce Again!!!!]

1/ Keep Coming Hardcore.
2/ Buggin’ Out.
3/ All The Worlds Banana’s.
4/ Hear Me Now.
Executive Edition Track
5/ Fuck You (Because I’m Fucking Angry 2).

Arachnophobes beware!!! Kniteforce label owner Dj Luna-C has not been resting on his laurels since the release of his groundbreaking 'Risk! EP' last month. The 'Almost No Spiders, Guaranteed EP (Executive Edition)' follows hot on the heels of it's predecessor this month with 5 massive tracks to rip up your soundsytem! 
'Keep Coming Hardcore' which opens up the EP does exactly as it says on the tin with an energetic hardcore techno backing beat overlaid with classic rave vocal samples to keep the trainspotters happy, and a monstrous, infectious stab riff to get right under your skin. The manic rave energy continues with 'Buggin' Out', which propels big band brass swells, hip-hop elements, a cheeky nu-metal (do they still call it nu-metal anymore???) vocal sample and manic keyboard motif over a throbbing hardcore-tek beat and bassline. 
With a cheeky nod to the Invisible Man's 'The Tone Tune', 'All The Worlds Banana’s' raises the euphoric vibes with massive 1992-styled pianos, stabs and diva vocals combined with frenetic synths and pounding kickdrums. 'Hear Me Now' adds a touch of junglistic flavour to the hardcore melting pot, with chopped up amen breaks peppered with strong reggae/ragga vibes and call to 'listen to the drum and listen to the bass' (courtesy of Musical Youth). The track still maintains that 'Luna-C' hardcore attitude with a pulsating bassline and warped riffs aplenty.
Last year's 'Because I’m Fucking Angry' from the 'A Whirlwind Of WHAT? E.P' receives an excellent, mental 2015 update in the form of the 'Fuck You (Because I’m Fucking Angry 2)' remix to close the EP in a manic fashion. Expect the 'Almost No Spiders, Guaranteed EP' to take no prisoners when it comes to soundtracking the 'rave' experience. Essential listening!
Dj Luna-C's 'Almost No Spiders, Guaranteed EP (Executive Edition)' is available to purchase from the Kniteforce Revolution webstore link below, for the bargain price of $6.50 (approximately £4.13 in UK money, so less than a quid per track!)...

[PRMP3014] Various Artists - One Nation EP [Free EP From Paranoid Recordings]

1/ Worldwide Epidemic - Experimental Subconscious.
2/ Skunk Association - Nightmares.
3/ Liam Taylor - High Voltage.
4/ Cronin - One Nation.
Paranoid Recordings present another instalment in their legendary series of free 4-Track EP's featuring both veteran producers and newcomers to the underground hardcore breaks scene. The 'One Nation EP' sees the combined talents of Worldwide EpidemicSkunk Association, Liam Taylor and Cronin join forces to forge a heavyweight, tear-out breakbeat collection of tracks.
Opening in a with 'Experimental Subconscious' by New Zealand based artist Worldwide Epidemic. An epic slab of amen-led, jungle-tekno featuring layered breaks, soaring synths, classic female vocal chants and lashings of late '93 to early '94 attitude. If the likes of Chaos & Julia Set set your eardrums aflame then this'll definitely be your bag!

Skunk Association returns to Paranoid Recordings to give you 'Nightmares', which as the tracks title suggests features subtle 'darkcore' stylings, whilst not going overboard with the 'horror' leanings. Twisted mentasm riffs and the occasional, unnerving synth accompany a huge dubby bassline and Funky Nassau breakbeats to great effect.

Newcomer to the label, Liam Taylor drops an altogether nuskool take to the hardcore rave mould with 'High Voltage' by combining heavyweight D&B breaks with jittery percussive elements and an addictive bass melody. As a final flourish to complete the track, Liam expertly  lays down an immense hoover riff rhythm and synth notes.
PS - I can't be the only one who is getting a hardcore Sir MixaLot/Booty Bass vibe off of this track! :D

The one and only (Paul) Cronin bookends the 'One Nation EP' with 'One Nation' in his true signature style. Classic vocal samples? Check! 200 mph amen breaks? Check! Hands-in-the-air pianos? Check! Frenetic rave riffs? Check! Mental MC/Hip-Hop/Ragga/Oldskool vocal samplage? Check! Check! Check! If the hardcore scene had maintained mainstream popularity to this date, then Paul would be the rave Calvin Harris!

If your hardcore tastes span from atmospheric, yet heavyweight jungle to hands-in-the-air uplifting anthems then the 'One Nation EP' has it all! As it's free, you have no excuse not to get on this one!

"Back to the new skool hardcore breaks this month. Also this month is that I have got into the animated series Rick and Morty (Cheers Rick!), so that's why it's sampled all over the mix! Anyone into adult cartoon stuff should check it out, Google is your friend.

Anyway some cracking tunes from the last couple of months. Some from the usual suspects and some from some producers I wasn't aware of. Love the first track from Craig Chant, sample mania and very well composed. Nice to see an original track like that. Couple tracks from Bassraver and DJ RIP, always top tunes from those guys.

Shouts to the usual guys and gals. Big ups to DJ Gunnee, now a fully functioning DJ on Dream FM:) Happy birthday as well, so congrats all round. Shout to all the Dream crew, Monita, Monk, Wise, Bagpuss, Fat Controller etc.

Hellos to Rick and Ginny, Liban and Owen, all the old skool ravers.

[SNBEP013] Strictly Nuskool Blog pres. DJ Rave In Peace - Veni Vidi Furere EP (2015)

DJ Rave In Peace has the word about his personal 6track EP, which is the 13th release in total from the Strictly Nuskool Blog - available on free download.

"Veni, Vidi, Furere....I Came, I Saw, I Raved!

Its difficult for me to explain this ep, I could so easily have called it "musical meanderings of a random mind" which would be fairly accurate as that pretty much sums up my music making process...i.e there is no process! Essentially it contains 3 tracks made back around 2007/8 which I have refreshed & then 3 brand new tracks made especially for this release.

They all revolve around oldskool beats and breaks and, whilst 2 of the tracks are in the "oldskool stab fest" vein, I also wanted to include tunes which approach the genre from a different direction. I never set out with a particular style or emotion in mind, pretty much all of my tunes are the result of playing around with different sounds and samples until something goes "click" and then the track builds from there.

I could, and probably would, waffle on for ages about each track, but I will instead let you discover them for yourselves. Download, listen and, hopefully, enjoy!

Massive thanks to Strictly NuSkool Blog for their continuing support of my tunes. "


Sunday, 14 June 2015


Believe it or not this producer is only 16 years old and we do know him very well over Strictly Nuskool Blog as he's been involved on 'The 1K EP' with 2 tracks inside and already signed on labels like Switchblade Digital, KODE 5 Recordings, Dred Collective, Ravenoyz Recordings.
An impressive year for Liam Taylor, who's a proud member of Nu-Rave Russian community!

[YMMM002] ScanOne - I'll Be Your Eyes [Limited 12" Vinyl Pre-Orders Avilable From Modified Magic]

 A1 - I’ll Be Your Eyes.
B1 - We Copy. 
B2 - Ssik 92.

Quick on the heels of Tap Throw's 'Dip Switches EP', the Modified Magic label uncovers their second release, the 'I'll Be Your Eyes' EP by ScanOne, head honcho of the Yellow Machines label head honcho. Featuring three slabs of deep and dark, oldskool hardcore, techno and jungle influenced tracks with a touch of the abstract and the off-kilter.

The EP begins in a tearing, dark jungle fashion with 'I'll Be Your Eyes' which lays down metallic, time-stretched breakbeats and sweeping synths on the intro, which then merge into militant, Funky Mule breaks, bleeps and technoid bass throbs. The track then gains in momentum before unleashing a massive, spine-tingling synth drop with resonating chime effects, and more spacious pads, before rounding things off with additional layered, darkside breakbeats. An epic piece which combines the frenetic elements of 1993 hardcore and jungle with those of techno and electronica to immense effect.

'We Copy' follows in a similar manner as it's predecessor with 1992-style, junglistic drumbeats interspersed with rolling Apache breaks, nods to oldskool hardcore's hip-hop sampling rots,  and booming bass pulses which carry a warped, acidic bassline and techno blips over sinister synth notes. A true trip to the darkside!

The EP is rounded off by the cryptically named 'Ssik 92', a moody hardcore/jungle inspired track oozing with menacing synths, bubbling bassline, dub-reggae drumrolls and an immense, disconcerting, warped acid flourish to add a sense of unease.

Altogether ScanOne has crafted a trilogy of deeply sinister hardcore/jungle tracks which wear their leftfield techno influences proudly on their sleeves. The 'I'll Be Your Eyes' 3-Tracker is a perfect addition of those who appreciate the futuristic vision of the 1993 hardcore and jungle scenes and the pioneers of forward thinking electronica. Essential listening!

ScanOne's 'I'll Be Your Eyes' limited edition vinyl 12" is available to pre-order from the Modified Magic Big Cartel webstore link below for the price of £7.99 plus P&P

I had some cool chat these days with Stamatis Kipouros, an established member in hcb & nu-rave scene hailing from Salonica/Greece. The main theme of our discussion was about his story so far so we've started talking about his early Rememberrave project till his current Motiv Breaks days..

Fasten your seatbelts and enjoy this lovely trip with him to

" About 9 years ago Vasilis Sideris came to my place and i still remember that day back then when i've made an oldskool hardcore tune and passed it to Vasilis to tell me what he thinks.
He absolutely liked it and that time he kept on visiting more often my home.

We caught up together doing experiments in tracks and once we had 3-4 tracks finished, we've set up a Myspace page giving a project name aswell, which was actually an answer and an essential key element that has been missing from our city, Salonica! And this was to make all oldskool clubbers from our city reborn and re-live the 90s again!
This was the period when Rememberrave were born.."

" We've started writting music with less knowledge in production technique, but the progress of production helped a lot when we've got connected with different people from Sonic Fortress & Dragon Technical crew, Nefti, Simon Holmes, Don Gorgon, The Flashback Project, DJ Pete, John Kidson just to name few of them over internet rave forums (Backtotheoldskool & Nu-Rave). These people were very important and respected to us and we we sharing the same music passion! Apart from that I was in full insomnia awake all night long studying about music production..

The first vinyl release came out from Sonic Fortress 'Rememberrave - The Golden Years EP' after Gareth & Phil came in contact with RR via Myspace. "

" Our early sound had been upgrading after we bought new equipment like hardware synths & various dj controllers and started playing out various parties in Salonica/Greece with the help & support of DJ Nuff and Koots MC [Polylicks].
That was the time when we met Orestiz and set up our own parties named 'Rip Up The Soundsystem' focusing mainly on the Nu-Rave sound (Hardcore Breaks, J-Tek, Rave Breaks, Future Jungle)
Whitetower Digital was born.. Various releases from the label where given on free download and some others where available on ravedownload.com or chemical records net store. "

" After a long break we decided to change the project's name to MOTIV cos we've felt it was a bit stupid keeping that RR cos it was inappropriate as a name , alongside seeing that we've been supported by 
various european countries like UK, Poland and Germany so we wanted to offer something fresh and new to our vibes surrounded by oldskool, dnb, breaks and house, and covering Nuskool Breaks sounds!

MOTIV switched to MOTIVBREAKS from now on driven by myself as a self project and experimenting on different kinds in Breaks genre.
I'm already signed to an established Greek label like VIM Records. And the f
irst release from there is titled BE WITH ME-RELEASE ME[VIM BREAKS BRONZE CAT NUM.001] "

The latest release from White Tower Digital is a past EP including tracks from Rememberrave made around mid00s and is a pretty gem in their own history & Nu-rave scene in general. Stamatis mentioned few words about it sayin:

" The Past EP is actually a kind of mini-compilation of the very first hardcore breaks project from me & Vasilis, featuring tracks which cover the sound of mid '00s in the Nu-Rave scene, just before entering the lowest bpm productions."

You can listen & grab 'The Past EP' from Rememberrave here :

Forthcoming Releases:

1) Digitrol - Ye Olde Sound Of London (Motivbreaks Jungle Breaks remix)


2) Motivbreaks 'Save Me Tonight EP' [VIM]
