Good to see that 20 years on from the Criminal Justice Act illegal raves are still going strong in the Sussex countryside.
One made the headlines after taking place in Devil’s Dyke at the weekend, resulting in usual over the top reporting from the Daily Mail website.

More old flyers from the shoebox archive. This time a couple of postcard flyers from the Full Cycle Records night down at The End. Above Full Cycle Records and special guest played the sound of Bristol & drum n’ bass in the main room on the 30/01/98 whilst Weird Beats Collective had the lounge with Andrea Parker (Mo Wax) as their guest.
A couple of years later in 2000 the Room 1 Full Cycle line up included Roni Size, Krust, Die, Suv, Dynamite MC, Splash, D Product, whilst Room 2 played host to the sound of the new decade with Skitz, Riski, One Cut, The General. Hip hop, funk and soul.
Did you attend a Full Cycle Records night at The End? If so leave your memories in the comments. In the meantime here’s some Krust.

As far as I know the only time I saw Frankie Knuckles play was down at Turnmills, December 2005 for Danny Ramplings retirement party.

Rest in peace. House music all night long!
