A trip to Ottawa to play the Delight Valentine’s Day party.
Return to the jungle source.
Classics from the happy dawn of rave.
A flashback to the oldskool breaks we’d listen to in the mornings after coming home (and down) from raves in the early 90’s.
Brash breakbeat time travel.
1997 was the year Hullabaloo landed in Toronto, and with it a resurgence in all things oldskool. Breaks, jungle, hardcore, happy hardcore, it all came back, with a liberal amount of the newest vibes and styles as well. This set harkens back to the very early days of breakbeat, with a great focus on the happy aspects – pianos, classic breaks, vocals and rhymes, and hand-in-the-air vibes. I happened into a residency at Hullabaloo, thanks to a friend, and kept paying their parties until I left Toronto in late 1999.
