For the day that’s in it, enjoy this playlist of Irish rave classics


It’s a St Patrick’s Day like no other, so what better excuse to celebrate Ireland’s rich dance music history?

Back in December, 909originals brought you the inaugural Irish Rave Championship, which saw 32 retro rave cuts compete for the title of Ireland’s most-loved old school track – after some tough competition (and thousands of online votes), Secret Weapon – Dream Lover (Sound Crowd Mix) lifted the overall title. Thanks again to everyone that participated in the competition.

For the day that’s in it – and with a oversized leprechaun hat placed firmly on our heads and a Mitsubishi-bedecked tricolour in our hands – here’s a playlist of all the tracks that were featured in the Irish Rave Championship, including some bona fide classics and a myriad of forgotten gems. The playlist can be accessed by clicking on the image below.
