Lubelski Brings ‘The Rave Scene’ to Our Living Rooms


Lubelski returns to his familiar home at Desert Hearts and has brought along a funk-filled ride through house heaven with The Rave Scene.

Missing the rave scene? Lubelski has your back. The house and techno producer released yet another fiery EP for listeners to fall in love with, marking his whopping sixth extended player of the year. The Rave Scene sees his triumphant return to the Desert Hearts imprint following his Lost My Senses release on DIRTYBIRD, as well as releases on Deeperfect, Gruuv, Club Bad, Elrow, and, of course, his debut album via his own Percomaniacs imprint The Universal Groove. Pandemic, who?

Packed with four tracks of retro house goodness, the EP moves and grooves from start to finish. “The Rave Scene” pulses with early Chicago house influence, riddled with a thumping bassline and piano that are complemented by echoing vocals. “Ain’t Going Like It Should” speeds things up a bit, creating a funk-filled atmosphere we only wish that we could experience live. The vocals murmur the title of the track over and over again over a pulsing beat, resulting in a minimal masterpiece that deserves to be listened to in a smoky club beneath a massive disco ball. For now, however, my living room will have to do.

Next up is “Quitting Is For Losers,” which brings more bouncy beats and discotheque vibes to the party, followed by “Designer Grooves.” My favorite track off the EP, it features glitchy vocals that boomerang off the bassline and make you feel like you’re at an underwater party set in the ’70s.

Lubelski is the master of making a major impact with his minimal style (say that five times fast) and it shines through beautifully on this EP. Things may look a little different these days, but as long as we still have Lubelski, the rave scene is not going anywhere. Or, as he explained on his Twitter: “The rave scene ain’t going like it should, but quitting is for losers.” And I don’t know about you all, but I’ll be spending the rest of the week listening to The Rave Scene on repeat, showing off my own designer grooves!

Sydney attributes her love for music from her mom, who insisted on playing The Foo Fighters and The White Stripes rather than Kiss FM whenever she drove carpool and agreed to allow Sydney to attend Coachella in the eighth grade as long as she could go with her. That first festival only greater affirmed Sydney’s passion for the scene, but it was not until 2013 when she attended Swedish House Mafia’s One Last Tour concert in Los Angeles that she discovered electronic music. She was hooked instantly and has since attended a total of 23 festivals, with countless concerts in between. Sydney’s favorite artists include RL Grime, Jauz, Jai Wolf, Louis The Child, Slander, Bearson and Big Gigantic but she is constantly on the look out for new music and artists to dance to. When she’s not scouring the internet for new tracks or grooving at a concert, Sydney studies Journalism and Biology full-time at the University of Oregon.
