    Default How Old Is Oldskool

    Oldskool to me always used to be RAVE, now we have oldskool, hip hop, rap, ganster rap etc etc.

    So how old is oldskool, is it a defined amount of time, or is it when a genre of music come back into the limelight.

    Cheers.....Q

    Rave was pre 90's and was your big outdoor illegal 'aciiiid' gatherings in fields and barns!!

    90-95 was you more typical tunes you hear in the bars and clubs (Prodigy, SL2 etc)...

    But each style of music has its 'golden age'... Rap was mid 80's along with Electro...

    I dont think you can even define the genre...

    understand you cant really difine the genre and each in indicative of its own genre (rap/rave whatever) I was mainly woundering on if there is a baracket, after which a tune becomes oldskool?

    you just hear a tune and think **** this is oldschool.. Like DJ Kool - Let Me Clear My Throat.. You don't need to be told or define Old School when you hear one you realise you're listening to a classic!

    Old Skool nowadays is the sort of music they play in rave clubs.

    Its actually old skool hard house or something like that but most of the people who go are too thick to understand that and just call it old skool.
