#BattleOfRave: That change from the mid 80′ to the early 90′ in 30 sec:
“Steve Brown: ‘From Love & Peace to Kill & Death”.

The Guardian “Ecstasy: The Battle of Rave review – top one, nice one, sorted”.Greetings from the Dutch underworld, an interview with ex-gangster Steve Brown(Video’s).

A history of UK acid house and rave recreates the scene’s drug-fuelled intensity, despite the BBC’s ‘newshound’ approach
Ecstasy: The Battle of Rave is not your usual hands-aloft-blow-yer-whistle-remember-the-good-times nostalgiafest. (For a start, it’s not on BBC Four.) It’s less formulaic and more interesting than that. So although we hear the music, it’s played without fanfare or announcement, underneath the interviewees, a subconscious reminder. And yes, we get some news reports, but they’re interwoven in a similar way. And alongside some familiar voices, such as Happy Mondays’ Shaun Ryder and Haçienda DJ Graeme Park, we also hear from others – notably Genesis club promoter Wayne Anthony, Blackburn rave creators Tommy Smith and Jane Winterbottom, and drug dealer John Burton. Clubgoer Lisa Palmer also tells her story, as does Ray Newman, a policeman, and Steve Brown, a Dutch USA guy from Amsterdam who shipped in hundreds of thousands of the UK’s first ecstasy tablets.
