DB43: Old Ravers Never Die

In a special live from Red Bull Studios New York session, DB is lured and gently pushed into discussion by his producer and cohost Jeannie Hopper on the history of Rave. The pair discuss how Chicago's house music was discovered and embraced by Manchester and London, where DB discovered it in 1986. To highlight the changing face of acid house and techno, DB spins some hallowed throwback tracks as well as a range of artists influenced by the original greats.

In this episode you hear tracks by The Source Ft Candi Stanton, Raze, The House Master Boys and The Rude Boy of House, Grey House, Alison Limerick, Bass Heads, Warp, LFO, Sweet Exorcist, Beltram, Kicks Like a Mule, Awesome 3, and many more!





As a kid in London, DB used to fall asleep at night with a transistor radio hidden under his pillow. He has been addicted to hearing new music ever since. Here, he brings that music to you. 

This is not a music show that's restricted to a particular genre, or even a specific decade, although it has an emphasis on indie rock with electronic elements or electronic music that's not simply for the dance floor. It's a 90-minute mixtape-style show that is as musically open-minded as the musical landscape is wide.
