    Ep25: Junior Tomlin - Creating iconic rave flyers, inspired by sci-fi & getting on the beers

    [**Our sincerest apologies both to you and to Junior Tomlin for the sound quality in this episode - you can blame Latch for that as he had to present AND produce at the same time...and failed. Think he was a bit tipsy on that free lager, and we were a bit rushed by the interview being delayed due to traffic. One of those days. Needless to say, we won't be allowing him to do that again any time soon!**]

    Celebrating 30 years in the game, JUNIOR TOMLIN chats over a few beers to ROAR: The '90s Rave Podcast about his amazing life and career as one of the scene's most famous artists.

    Still a geezer at 60, Junior - AKA The Salvador Dali of Rave - sat down with regular host TOM LATCHEM and ROAR's resident artist, GRANTUS ARTS, at East London's fittingly cool SIGNATURE BREWERY to chew the fat over how he was inspired by sci-fi samples in early '90s rave music to become one of the scene's top flyer designers with his so-called "visual drugs" which will have adorned many of your walls, and in turn inspired ravers to become artists.

    Thanks as well to the great guys at Signature Brewery in Blackhorse Road for having us and kindly supplying us with all that booze you can see in shot. Check them out here: https://www.signaturebrew.co.uk/

    Ep24: Vibealite's Gary Jaques, Part 3 - Promoter wars, the decline & a potential reunion?

    Ep24: Vibealite's Gary Jaques, Part 3 - Promoter wars, the decline & a potential reunion?

    In yet another exclusive for ROAR: The ‘90s Rave Podcast, renowned VIBEALITE promoter GARY JAQUES gives his first interview in 25 years. 

    In this the third and final part, Gary discusses the difficulties of running raves against the backdrop of a splitting scene and then happy hardcore’s demise, how he became disillusioned after being ripped off and having to do battle rival promoters, why he finally decided to walk away from promoting - and he gives hope to those of you who want to party at one more Vibealite! 

    (Apologies for slight sound issues in this episode, but you can blame Gary for living in the countryside and having to move positions after running out of battery…)

    Ep22: Vibealite's Gary Jaques, Part 1 - The early days & why he’s finally speaking out!

    Ep22: Vibealite's Gary Jaques, Part 1 - The early days & why he’s finally speaking out!

    In yet another exclusive for ROAR: The ‘90s Rave Podcast, renowned VIBEALITE promoter GARY JAQUES gives his first interview in 25 YEARS. 

    In three hour-long episodes stripped across a week, Gary will tell how he went from sweaty raver to the promoter of one of the ‘90s top rave events and brands.

    In this first episode, Gary reveals how he was inspired to create a more raver-friendly event than most of those he was attending in the early ‘90s, how they came up with the famous name and branding and took the rave scene by storm by doing things that bit differently, as well as explaining why he’s chosen to finally speak out now - and why he’s chosen ROAR to do so!

    Part 2 dropping SUNDAY and the third and final ep on TUESDAY!

    Ep23: Vibealite Gary Jaques, Part 2 - Growing, evolving & peaking

    In yet another exclusive for ROAR: The ‘90s Rave Podcast, renowned VIBEALITE promoter GARY JAQUES gives his first interview in 25 YEARS. 

    In this the second of three parts, Gary discusses how he grew Vibealite from a club night to a huge multi-arena event, monetised the growing brand through merchandise including the recorded-on-the-night tapes and the famous bomber jackets, and gave some of today’s big name DJs their first breaks. Plus he reveals how the prospect of performing at Vibealite made even rave scene stalwarts like Kenny Ken tremble!

    The third and final part lands on TUESDAY!

    More04: ROAR charity appeal on behalf of MC Navigator - dig deep to help a '90s rave legend!

    More04: ROAR charity appeal on behalf of MC Navigator - dig deep to help a '90s rave legend!

    ROAR today launches our first charity appeal, as we team up with the legendary MC Navigator to ask for your help - and we know you lovely lot will answer our call.

    Navi's nurse sister-in-law, Tracy-Ann Mullings, has a rare form of cancer and the family needs help funding her treatment and to get through the Covid-19 pandemic as she's unable to work.

    Here Navi - one of the original rave mic men, and still going strong today - chats to us about what's been going on with Tracy and how your donations can help him, to help her.

    We aren't asking for any donations into our crowdfund this week and the ROAR team has donated £100 to kick this off. Now it's down to you and you can donate here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/nurse-tracyann-mullings-needs-your-help
     
    Everyone who donates will be entered into a ballot and one person will get to chat to Navi on the blower about his life and career as a top rave artist. 

    If you aren't able to donate that's absolutely fine, as we all know what a tough time this is for us all, so why not instead send some well-wishes to Tracy via Navi's Twitter account - https://twitter.com/navi4real

    In the words of the man himself - PEACE

    Ep21: Ribbz, Part 2 - Lasting all night, avoiding scene politics & gun threats from fellow MCs

    As ROAR: The '90s Rave Podcast's 'MC Month' edges towards a close, Ribbz - AKA Sean Hill, the nicest man in rave and one of the leading hosts of all time - tells us how he still manages to last all night despite being in his fifties, explains how he avoids scene politics but reveals he was once threatened to be shot by a territorial fellow MC, and answers the big pressing question: Just how hard can he go?
