“What’s your name? Where ya from? How many ya on?” Notes on Rave in Dublin is a roller coaster ride through the birth pangs of dance music in our dirty old town. From the democratic romance of those early loved up dancefloors to how a cold social stratification and commercialisation crept back. That left it up to a network of outsider labels, pirates, and ravers to establish the indigenous scene that we now call our own. This is a story of how an underground works, mutates and survives.

'90s Dublin is brought vividly to life in this enjoyable trip back in time.
