© Fabio & GrooveriderTake an audio look back at the music which defined the sound of ‘RAGE’ over the last 30 years with Fabio & Grooverider digging deep into the vaults of Jungle , Drum & Bass and a whole lot more styles…

Above Board Projects has announced the release of ‘RAGE’, a story of the birth-place of bass music told with tracks selected by Fabio & Grooverider. The album celebrates 30 years since the launch of RAGE, the seminal weekly club night that gave a platform to the emergent UK street sounds of acid, techno, breakbeat, hardcore, jungle and drum & bass.

The RAGE compilation, a 32-track album, released in a series of four separate double vinyl LPs, double CD, digital and stream, with all tracks available on vinyl and digitally, captures the energy of the halcyon days of rave with a collection of highly-influential, game-changing records famously associated with Fabio & Grooverider, who have been at the forefront of electronic music for over 3 decades. The two London DJs are part of the DNA of the global jungle/drum & bass movement and they have remained relevant, cutting edge, authoritative and essential to this truly underground artform since its inception.

The first and second double vinyl installments of the album will be released on Friday 31 May. ‘RAGE PART 1’ and ‘RAGE PART 2’ see selections from Fabio & Grooverider's’ groundbreaking archive including proto-jungle, breakbeat and New York deep House classics rubbing shoulders with acid house, techno and UK rave tracks. Each track is accompanied by liner-notes from Fabio & Grooverider that map out some of the intense musical journeys these tunes took the RAGE crew on. Highlights of the first brace of 2 X 12 inch releases include Wots My Code's infamous 'Dubplate' bubbles nicely alongside Ritchie Hawtin’s Cyber-sonik's motor city anthem 'Technarchy', 33 1/3 Queen's technoid rave banger 'Searchin' sits shoulder to shoulder with Tic Tac Toe's monstrous 'Ephemerol'. Truly a masterclass in the sound of the under-ground, from the inside out.

RAGE is an album of classic underground electronic tracks that rumbled and ech-oed through the dark, labyrinthine, cavernous halls of London’s Heaven nightclub, bringing an essential new darker alternative to clubland and the global festival and rave scenes. Fabio & Grooverider’s RAGE was born out of acid house and housed in the same venue that also hosted acid house clubs Spectrum, Land Of Oz, Garage and Pyramid in 1988 with Future and Troll in its Soundshaft back room. However, Rage added an essential grimy, urban street credibility to the genre, creating a schism in dance music when house music separated from techno and its urban, bass-fuelled manifestation on the dancefloor, known collectively at the time as hardcore, which further developed into the faster jungle and drum & bass sounds Fabio & Groove rider also pioneered at RAGE, arguably the ground zero of jungle.

The Rage parties emerged during the peak of the acid house era back in 1988 when acid house fever was making its way up and down the motorways, slip-roads, fields and warehouses of the M25 and further beyond every weekend, troubling the nation, the police, your parents and the press as it. However, with Fabio & Grooverider at the helm after becoming resident DJs on the main floor in 1991, RAGE was a differ-ent beast; it certainly channeled some of that Acid energy but pitted it against the new and exciting sounds emanating from Belgium, Amsterdam, Detroit, Sheffield, Essex and Hackney and in turn created a new style, a new sonic attitude, and en-ergy in the process. Rumbling bass-lines, narcotic synth rushes and roughly chopped and sped-up breakbeats all merged into a style that we now know as Jun-gle. Nothing like this had been heard before, this was a brand new style and it was coming out of London's West End and Fabio & Groove rider were the people firmly behind it.

The sonic and cultural legacy of RAGE is still being felt today, Fabio & Grooverider are still shutting down raves and festivals every weekend all over the world with their superior DJ sets and musical knowledge guided by their pioneering spirit. This mu-sical selection you hold in your hands, the first of 4 parts, sees them delve into their prodigious memories and record boxes to select a true musical representation of the very beginning of one of the UK's most unique and influential musical movements of the last 50 years.


RELEASE DATE: 2 x LP Release 31st May / Full Album 21st June
