    Are there any nights that truly capture the vibes from back in the day? I have my doubts but would love to be proved totally wrong :D

    Dunno that but there are still promotions holding the flag up

    in Germany oldskool has pretty much vanished from the floors in favor of dubstep and minimal techno, so..in favor of cash.

    I've been searching for parties that potentially re-capture the vibe of the early 90s but alas I think Colza is right. Too many things have changed, including me.

    Check out the recent oldskool fantazia nights on youtube. They look pretty good and just to hear those tunes on a system again would be enough to get me buzzing. As for the vibe? I'm not so sure.

    yeah after listening to koolfm recently it seems theres loads of events around: back to 93, labyrinth, epidemik, back to 95 etc.

    although I still think going to free/warehouse partys would be better.

    the era is over... lets come together and start a warehouse dance... without facebook and all that shit... I think a lot of the DJ´s from back in the day are up for it... no flyers, no clubs, no bars... only the music and ravers

    Thought i'd bump this thread as I went to fantazia superheroes at motion in bristol a few weeks back. My first rave since 1996!! Whilst it didn't hit the heights of the 90s (obviously) it was still fooking brilliant. There was a good mix of people with no attitude and a great vibe with of course great music. motion is awesome, it has a real warehouse feel to it. Even managed to get hold of some awesome gurners. I can't fault the night really and will probably do another old skool event this summer.
