Recently launched, R.O.A.R. is a brand new spoken-word podcast dedicated to celebrating the nineties rave scene through stories, tales and mixes from the big-name DJs, MCs, producers, promoters and pirates of the time.
The team consists of former talkSPORT presenter, and nineties rave fanatic, Tom Latchem and DJ/producer Chrissy Richards on hosting duties, with Paul Pryor on production and research.
To date, listeners have been treated to insightul and entertaining interviews with Fabio & Grooverider and Slipmatt, with upcoming shows set to feature Luna-C and Bryan Gee. The currently published interviews with Fabio & Grooverider and Slipmatt are relaxed and candid and never feel rushed or predictable in their line of questioning.
Slipmatt shares stories of his part in the birth of Happy Hardcore, his relationships with The Prodigy and a tale of spiking that could have gone horribly wrong! Want to find out Slipmatt's favourite nineties year for music? Better give it a listen to find out!
Meanwhile, Fabio & Grooverider discuss the origins of drum and bass, the darker side of the scene and balancing a family life with the DJ lifestyle.
