Welcome to the DVarchives

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

(WARNING)

This website contains flashing images that may be harmful to those who are photosensitive.

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 we built this website to document all the footage we have shot over the years, we are always busy behind the scenes looking through old tapes and trying to fix broken ones to digitise and edit for our channel.

There is no monetary gain from what we do,  we are not a professional video crew we just have friends from back in the day who enjoy the videos we make and they invite us to their reunion parties and events to capture the vibe.  You can support us by clicking on any of the Amazon links you see throughout our website, we receive Amazon credits just for your click which go directly towards the gear we use for filming and photographing music events.

(NO PURCHASE NECESSARY)

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.  Come have a look around, use our search function at the bottom of our website or simply press play below to activate our front page picks. up and coming videos will play automatically so u can kick back and enjoy.

    1. Go on Dave lad!! Paul…This guy is a legend in the north-east rave scene. Not the quickest of cats but good harmless fun. R + R

  2. Love the site.Can anyone remember the name of the magician/illusionist that i remember played Rez once and i’m sure I remember seeing his name on flyers for other places too?Been racking my brain over this for months.

    1. The guys name was Mark Oberon but he performed as The Wizard. Mind blowing stuff as I can just remember haha

    2. Thanks very much Anonymous.I was sure the name he performed under was The Wizard but I just wasn’t too sure.Do you have any footage Paul?

    3. Saw him at Judgement Day in Newcastle in 1996 and he freaked everyone right out. Was a good call by Guy booking him as he was one of the best things I’ve had the pleasure to witness. Amazing!!! Hey Paul….Wheres this Ultimate Buzz Live at 50th Rez/Clash of the Titans footage? I’m sitting here with my tongue hanging out in anticipation haha There was a few decent bits in that DJ T-Jay and DJ Pulse clip but nothing close up. Keep up the good work. Like I’ve said before, I’m a HUGE fan of your work. R + R from Lee in Newcastle

  3. I’m a big fan of your work Paul and I know that you’re a busy man. Are you still going to do 12 hour Rez footage?? Also would love to see some clips of Ultimate Buzz at the 50th Rez (Feb ’95) and Clash Of The Titans as I think Ginge Murray is the best dancer the scene has ever seen. Thanks pal. Keep up the good work.

    1. Hi Lee yes we are working non-stop behind the scenes to make that happen, hard to say when as more recent events and projects are prioritised for now.

Share your memories of events we have covered
