    Manchester 1995, House/Techno scene

    Hi everyone,

    Felt it was about time I wrote a post.

    One of my faviourite club nights post rave-scene was Bugged Out @ Sankeys Soap, Manchester and Sleuth @ Paradise Factory, Manchester. These club nights were hard-house and techno with the resident at Sleuth being Justin Robertson. Guests included the likes Darren Emerson, Dave Clarke, Laurent Garnier to name a few.

    These nights had quite an underground feel to them, where people only cared about dancing, and letting off some of that university stress

    Did anyone else visit these clubs during 94-95? I had a friend who went to Final Frontier in London which apparently was quite a similar vibe. What other clubs were about that had the same type of music?

    Am into my 95 house but did not really go out in 95 as I was away at college training to be a painter and decorator and did not know anyone who was really into house I collected a ton of tapes that year.

    But I moved backed to Norwich in 96 mainly went to waterfront or U.E.A have seen Danny Rampling, Tall Paul, Tony De Vit, Scott Bond, Tom wainwright or Allister Whithead not sure. Have seen Lisa loud and ton of other's but can't remember as it was so long ago.

    Miss money-pennies use to do tours and come to the U.E.A Norwich, same with a lot of other tops clubs like gatecrasher. Seen so many DJ's in Norwich.

    My brother saw Judge Jules in a night club, but i was not with him it was upstairs the dance floor upstairs was very small it would of been very cool to see him. That was a fluke by my brother they did not know he was their.

    Before 94 i was into hardcore & jungle but mainly went to night clubs my mates were not into that type of music or events.

    My brother loved house music but did not collect tapes like me, the same with a few of his mates some did have turntables but did not collect tapes all were into CD mixers.

    even to this day am not over keen on CD mixers. Not my cuppa tea.

    I've seen Lisa Loud play once at Back to Basics in Leeds. I quite liked her progressive house sounds.

    I was similar in the sense I was into the rave scene circa 90-92. Went to quite a few raves and free-parties during that time but mainly in the East Anglia area including Milton Keynes. Raves such as Dreamscape, Amnesia House, Equinox etc. I loved the piano riffs but I was always striving for that techno kick-drum.. ie Carl Cox, Dave Angel, Joey Beltram.

    After 92 the BPM of the music increased considerably and it wasn't too my liking. Don't get me wront, I don't mind jungle but wasn't my type of music to dance to even though I love old reggae/dancehall too.

    I'm similar. Although I would have preferred to have partied when the acid house scene first kicked off in UK late 80s

    I use to hear about it from older siblings which got me fascinated. Plus as a kid we would see news reports on Acid house parties.

    Hearing A Guy called Gerald for the first time on John Peel's radio show got me properly intrigued.

    Thats quite an eclectic array of genres. Which is always good in my books.

    Looking back I noticed that folk who were raving didn't always come from a dance music background. Students liked the rave scene because it had kinda anti-establishment undertones with seeing it on the news etc etc.

    Myself I was also into hip-hop, soul and reggae. The acid and rave scene lured me with the weird sounds and speeded up hip-hop beats.

    Do you remember Silver Bullet, Ragga Twins or Rebel MC? UK's answer to hip-hop with a ragga/rave vibe.

    I have a helter-skelter double pack with her and groove rider on it and her mixing is amazing I think it's 93 so jungle but I love it.

    Looking out for more of them to collect but they are very rare but do come up for sale once in a while,

    I love early jungle it went on to be call drum & bass what I do not like.

    I like them dance planet mixers single ones but they go for stupid money 60 and up. Early hardcore is great.
