Since it is technically a Thursday, what better song to do a throwback with than one of the biggest songs of the Bloghaus era: “Rave Is King” by Fukkk Offf. Back in 2008, “Rave Is King” was dirtying up dance floors everywhere…whether it was a house party or an illegal warehouse, if you got a chance to chant the chorus to “Rave Is King” then your night was considered a success. Fast forward to 2014 where excitement levels are electric as this Bloghaus classic gets revisited. Fukkk Offf themselves offer up a sinister new re-edition of the track while Moonbootica, Modek, aUtOdiDakT & PWNDTIAC each offer up 2014 versions of their own. This motley group of gritty, sleazy, tripped out remixes has something for everyone. IT’S ALCOHOL, DRUGS AND OVERDRIVE ALL OVER AGAIN.
RAVE IS KING.
“Rave Is King” Re-edition/Remixes are out now [BUY].
