Editors' Notes Some new remixes help this compilation deliver more than nostalgia, but it still presents a comprehensive history of UK rave from the late '80s to mid-'90s. As ubiquitous on mainstream airwaves as it was in the warehouses, Nomad’s “(I Wanna Give You) Devotion” is an appropriate opener for a collection loaded with big-sellers and club classics. The standout moments come from artists who brought new ideas to a constantly evolving scene: St. Etienne apply their pop sophistication to Euro house under the alias Cola Boy (“7 Ways to Love”), early shoots of jungle sprout from Phuture Assassins’ ragga-influenced breakbeat (“Future Sound”), and Alex Reece ignites the 2-step explosion with the brooding “Pulp Fiction.”
