techno 95

My first so called rave was at the "Belgium" event in 1995. The music i heard was somehow harder than what most dj's played in the clubs those days. The line-up was incredible (google it!) and 100% Belgian.

One of the jocks that really impressed me was dj g-force, i think i heard him for the first time that night. Although he was in charge of the closing (6 or 7 am), he played the hardest set, a new sound to me. This was techno, but not as i knew it. Hard bangin' tracks with some acid-influences, these were the early days of the Reload label (probably the first Belgian label to release and promote this sound, check their impressive discography).

Unfortunately i don't have any recordings of that night, but what i do have is a g-force tape, recorded at the Techno 95 rave in the Montini club. If you're into the harder side of techno you should check it. It starts with a long intro (the noble art of playing a good intro no longer exists!) and slowly builds up with some minimal and bleepy sounds, the journey continues "hard", and ends at a crazy tempo (keep your bpm-counters ready!!).
