Oldschool Melbourne Mixes

01Sep10

Spurred on by a thread over at ITM, and with a large hand from deck whom hooked me up with all the sets (thanks dude!), I’ve been able to upload a heap of old-school harder edged type mixes from in and around the Melbourne area from clubs such as Hard Kandy, Bass Station and Wet Musik. Recorded around the late 90s to early 2000s they do well in capturing the awesome vibe that was alive in our flourishing rave scene “back in the day”.

Not the type of music I usually post on this blog, this is a trip down memory lane and an ode to my roots. Back then it was all about Hard Trance, Hard Techno, Hard House and anything else with “Hard” in the title. These were the glory days of my youth when I was first discovering electronic music. This type of music holds a special place in my heart and I hope that there are others out there that will get as much enjoyment as I have in re-visiting the past. Listening to all this music brought back awesome memories of great friends, good times and out-of-control rave events (and I mean rave in the truest sense).

Anyway, direct .mp3 download links are listed below. Where applicable there are loose track-listings. Feel free to comment if you can help add to the list and hopefully we can fill in the blanks. Enjoy!!

    You don’t have the Reemo – Atmosphere Hard Trance Vol 2 do you J-Slyde? I can’t find it ANYWHERE. Used to have it on Minidisc but that device shat itself in the mid 2000s.

      • 25 Mydogjet

        Sweet, thanks. Reemo.com.au is no longer active and any other link I can find is a dead end.

    Any help id ing the last two tunes would be appreciated, jewelz v tristan mason its around the 44 min mark.
    and Midro vs Kaos 36 min mark, this is a killer track and i just cant catch a break trying to find it.

    • Thanks heaps for sharing those, mate!

      Do you have a link to that Carl Brown set?
      Very sad to hear of his passing. I have some fond memories rocking out to his sets at Bass. 😦
