Rave Tapes - Dj Randall 1991-1992
Proper RAVE!! Not new rave, not new electro sampling rave. This is proper real old school rave. The promising art star Matthew Stone, part of the art collective Wowow, rescued a bunch of private rave tapes made between 91-95 from a thrift store dump and gave them to me. So upcoming will be the ones I like. Some Mickey Finn, some other weird stuff.
When I first posted this, I did not know much about this cassette. But the lovely Kevin from dilate choonz blog enlightened me on Dj Randall and this cassette. Turns out this is the cassette, "Yaman Studio Mix 2", made in 1992. Apparently DJ Randall is more of a drum and bass dj now. Here's the track listing and cover.
02 Bass Balistics - Fantasy
03 Hedgehog Affair - Parameters
04 Krispy Krouton - Beef & Tomato
05 Bodysnatch - Hey I Cant Explain It
06 Skeleton Krew - Luv To Luv Ya
07 Doc Scott - NHS ( Heavyweight Remix)
08 No Control - I Know I'm Rushing (original mix)
09 Terra Incognita - Phalanx
10 Tek 9 - Just a dream : Part 2 (Manix Remix)
11 Kaotic Kemistry - LSD
12 Andy C - Outer Limits
01 Lemon D - Kinetic State
02 Hypno-Genesis - Take Control (Jungled Up To F**k Mix)
03 TrueBlood - Roots & Culture
04 Waxdoctor - New Direction
05 Metalheadz - Sinistery
06 3 Thieves & A Liar
07 The Moog - Jungle Muffin (Mickey Finn Remix)
08 Force Mass Motion - Collision Course
09 Bad Influence - Sudden Impact 10 3 Rude Bwoy - Rude Bwoy Rambo (Roast Gun Mix)
Unfortunately I was not listening to this music around that time. To me now it sounds like nothing else, fresh and fantastic. I think the reason I like this is that it has jungle beats, but also lots of synth sounds that are almost like happy house from that time. Unfortunately, this cassette is not as good quality of a recording as some other posts on this blog.
I especially love the synths on side 2 at the beginning and at 19:42 mark.
I think this is Dj Randall's myspace page.

I plan to rip out some of the clips from this mix that I think stand out. Here's the first track from side 2.
