Welcome to the DVarchives

Step back in time to the 1990’s rave scene in Scotland.

We are a small group of friends who are passionate about filming and photographing Scotland’s vibrant music scene, we filmed almost all the big raves in Scotland between 1991 and 1998 and can still be seen out filming and photographing at events today.  (check our blog section)

There is no monetary gain from doing what we do,  we do it because we love it, we have good friends in the scene from back in the day who enjoy the videos we make and they invite us to their music events to capture the vibe.  We have a huge archive of oldskool rave footage from the 90’s on our website, come and have a look around, use our search function at the bottom of our website or simply kick back and press play below to activate our front page picks. up and coming videos will play automatically so u can kick back and enjoy.

You can support us by clicking on any of the Amazon links you see throughout our website, we receive Amazon credits which go directly towards hard drive upgrades, tripods, memory cards, batteries and other equipment.

We are gearing up to produce a series of full-length videos containing a lot of unseen footage of the rave scene in Scotland so your support really means alot to us, there is a lot to get through and some tapes are starting to deteriorate with age, we feel that it was such an important time for music that the footage filmed by us back then must be preserved and published as a historical archive of music history in Scotland.

There are countless hours to be lost here, come have a look around.

Phaze5 – Together – Hardcore Uproar

We heard that Together were playing at CJ’s in Rosyth for the 5th instalment of Reunion-Phaze events (phaze5). We really wanted to capture Together’s classic anthem Hardcore Uproar on video to add to our #DVarchives so we threw all our camera gear in the car and drove up to get the vibe, we have filmed in CJ’s a few times before and knew we would be up against it with the humidity in the place, we took our cameras out into the stage area to let them acclimatise to the hot and sweaty atmosphere of the rave.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The place was already jumping and we found it hard not to pick cameras up and start filming until the cameras were ready, we were constantly wiping them down with bar towels as we were concerned that moisture would get inside the circuitry and blow the mainboard, which has happened before, soon as our cameras were ready we starting filming as there was so much going on, everyone was right up for a having a great time and we pretty much filmed all night, here is a 5 camera live edit we filmed and edited.

Together performing the timeless classic Hardcore Uproar

This is a highlights video we made cut from all our footage, we will at some point get round to editing more live clips from this event, anyone who knows us, knows how much of our own time we dedicate to continuously build on the #DVarchives making it Scotland’s top ranking website for music event video, from the early 1990’s to the present day, and onwards into the future.
