DJ Slipmatt, a legend, a pioneer in the Rave game, has been on the radio for two whole years with his ‘World Of Rave’ show. Two years of madness, two years filled with awesome music. When the show first appeared on the radio, I was a regular listener, but after a while he changed the day and I couldn’t listen to it that often anymore. I am gutted, it brought a smile on my face every time I heard his show, but thankfully we’ve got Mix and Soundcloud, on which you can find each and every episode the Godfather of Rave has ever made.
When the show first started, it was only broadcasted via Slipmatt’s own website, and now it’s on several radio stations, such as Koollondon, Demand UK, Spin City Radio, Rejuve, and many more. You can hear Slipmatt’s World Of Rave nearly every day of the week via several internet radio stations, and during his first 2 years he has achieved a lot. He has made a small radio show turn into a huge radio show, with thousands of listeners all over the globe.
Every week he gives us Rave lovers exactly what we need, a show filled with Rave music from start to finish. Seeing as he’s been in the game for many years, his record collection is quite huge and impressive, and his shows are packed with the finest tunes selected by Slipmatt himself. He does know a thing or two when it comes to Rave music, but there’s a reason why he’s such a legend: he’s been in the game for many years, so his knowledge is tremendous. He’s known as the Godfather of Rave, and that title wasn’t just given because of his age, it was given to him because he was (and still is) a pioneer. Been in the game since the early days and single handedly changed the scene, this man has earned his respect, and to this day he will get the respect he deserves. A pioneer, and a legend.
I haven’t listened to the show for a long time, so I thought I give it a go. But there are a few questions in my head: what happened to Rhodesy’s section, and the weather forecast by the lovely Rachel? And wasn’t the show 2 hours long? Boy, I’ve not listened to the show for ages! Time to get back into it.

Will you look at this? Only a true pioneer can create such a wicked tracklist! This is amazing! Too many great anthems in here.
The Godfather’s show is as good as it was when I listened to it every week. And this week it was a very special episode: World Of Rave’s 2nd year anniversary! And not only that, it was Slipmatt’s birthday. Don’t ask me his age, because I simply don’t know, but he’s not a young one, eh? But with age comes experience and knowledge, and you can tell that his knowledge is immense. He could write a book about everything he knows about Rave music. One book we would all read!
Even though I miss Rachel and Rhodesy, the show’s still good. Only an hour long, but an hour filled with awesome tunes. Carefully selected, mixed and scratched by Slipmatt himself. The best track in this mix? Oh, that’s a difficult one, there are several. But the one with the nastiest bass wins: ‘Right Before’. Brilliant track: whenever I hear it, I want to dance like that bloke from the Prodigy in their video ‘Firestarter’. Going absolutely bonkers.
Anything bad to mention? Not at all. A good show for those who love their Oldskool tunes, presented by the man who reshaped the scene: Slipmatt. World Of Rave has become an established show, a well respected show, and if you have never heard it before, why not listen to it every week? Via Slipmatt’s website you can find all the details regarding the show. This show won’t disappoint you.
Oh, WOR isn’t just a radio show. Check out their website for more information: they’ve got a whole cloathing line! They sell shirts etc, and who doesn’t want to buy them?
Slipmatt, I am sorry for not listening often. I will listen to it again. I’ve missed your show a lot.
