Oscillate was such a sick night, but I do seem to remember most people doing Speed rather than LSD. The club nights at Bond's were immense, saw so many awesome live sets at them. I remember my first allnighter being an oscillate event at the Que club. Clubbing was such a totally different vibe back then. Met so many amazing people and the subsequent Nights they did in the early 00's were awesome.

To be honest I never went to Oscillate - my experiences of hearing that track were at Club Dog type events or little things in Brighton. But yeah, I missed out how much speed was going around - a gram of base and a microdot was my combination of choice. My friends from up north used to refer to that as "the Geordie E" because it was a really cheap way of getting out of it for the whole night.

Jesus your brave. That's one meaty combo mate.

One of the things I actually love most about that time for me was not been a record buyer through that period. I have memories of dancing allnight to unknown tunes and being caught up in the euphoria of it all. I mean those nights were pretty underground in retrospect before the big Club boom of the mid 90's

That's one of the most interesting articles I've ever read on dance music, I wonder why there seems to be a collective amnesia of this stuff?

Absolutely wicked article. Makes me so sad I'm slightly to young to have experienced all this. Think the closest thing i've got to it was a ketamine and mephedrone ridden warehouse party in 2008 in Brighton lol. Not quite the same.

I wrote on that topic here: http://notebook.veryverymuch.com/post/1 ... hippie-but
I can’t help feeling that a lot of this is to do with embarrassment. A lot of people who have been raving aren’t really inclined to put fingers to keyboard and type out “and after I’d seen God in a packet of chewing gum, I told a guy called Ian from Potter’s Bar that I thought he had the spark of all life in his eyes in a rare and precious way, had a discussion about how music was basically fractal, and then did a sick on his shoes.”

Because everyone was off their tree?

This one sticks out for me from that era...



Ozrics were also good value back then ;)



....the 'Bass It' mix of this one is probably what started my love of bass music (can't find it on youtube tho).
