“Choose raving. Choose a life before Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and not caring what someone else thinks. Choose events with multiple genres in one room, broadening your musical horizons . And choose DJs who mix genres within their sets, making your walk up to the booth to find out what the fuck that
monster tune is they’re playing. Choose MC’s that roll with the music and big you up, instead of bigging themselves up and killing the music with 64 bars of fire Choose reliving your past if only for one more night. Choose ecstasy because it has to be better than plant food or some designer drug where you’re a walking guinea pig. Choose bumping into someone on the dance floor, to have them turn around, smile, shake your hand, and become a new mate for life because you’re both sharing the euphoric glow of happy vibes. Choose after parties that make weekends disappear, toking joints back in someone’s smoke filled room, with debates over the greatest sets that you play on cassettes - which in turn will become £50 collectors items on eBay in 20 years. And then, take a deep breath. You are an addict, so be addicted. Just be addicted to something better. Choose the music you love. Choose your raving memories. Choose Uprising.”
* DJ Sy; The undisputed king of happy hardcore back in the day. The scratch master, the tunes, the Don. With countless releases to his name, there are few people who can be called hardcore legends and Sy is one of them.
* Jackmaster Jay; Long before Paul-O was knocking out the techno, Sheffield had another heavyweight across the airwaves and events. Coming back for an uprising exclusive, we can’t wait!
* Jester; Another local DJ, former Uprising resident from way way back, and another exclusive. Now recognised across the country for his huddle and other appearances, Jester has agreed to do a one-off return to Hardcore.
* Vinylgroover; with countless releases on Hectic records alongside Ramos and Supreme, Vinylgroover made several appearances for us right back in the early days. His tapes are hot property amongst the collectors and having not played round these parts for years, we have a bit of an exclusive.
* Fergus; Pleasuredome and Vibealite legend, we are proud to announce Mansfield’s very own Fergus. Its fair to say, this man needs no introduction - get ready for some choice trance.
Not forgetting the mighty Vibe Tribe; Kenny Sharp, Paul-O, Topgroove and MCs Marcus, Natz, JD Walker, Beatz, and Space
