This video, via Paolo Di Nicolantonio of SynthMania, takes a nostalgiac look back at how rave music was played live in the 90s.
Here’s what Nicolantonio has to say about the video:
“I felt nostalgic tonight and fired up the trusty old W-30….’ says Nicolantonio. “For the younger viewers, here’s a breakdown of how a typical Techno / Rave piece of the early ’90s would have come to light. Riffs all played live as we used to do at rave parties.”
“This is the sound of my youth,” he adds, “and I love making this music and talking about the gear and techniques of the day.”
The first part of the video explains the rave rig. Starting, starting about 2:00 in. the video switches over to an extended rave jam.
