1986 << >> 1988

It was New Year's Day ... 1987. I was at home with my parents, I was going for a walk in the morning, it was, like, bright blue sky, and I thought "I'm going to make a hip-hop record. Who can I make a hip-hop record with?"

1987: création de FoeBuD: “Verein zur Förderung des öffentlichen bewegten und unbewegten Datenverkehrs e.V.” à Bielefeld.
1987: the International Radio Syndicate - 50 days 24h broadcasting from a mobile broadcasting station during the documenta 8, Kassel.

I am listening to Laibach (Opus Dei), Celtic Frost (Into the Pandemonium), Front 242 (Official Version), Coil (Gold is the Metal...), the first Napalm Death LP (Scum), and the first KLF/The Jams album: 1987 (What the Fuck Is Going On?)...

November 22: The Max Headroom incident - a "video pirate" wearing a Max Headroom mask breaks into the signal of a Chicago TV station for about 90 seconds.

The Times newspaper reports the first ecstasy seizures in London. The drug, it says "Is used as a sexual stimulant"

January - Steve 'Silk' Hurley has the first House number 1 with "Jack your Body"

Early summer - Trevor Fung & Ian St Paul open a small bar in San Antonio called the Project (named after a club in London Paul was partially running). it acts as a focal point for young British youth's out for a good time on the island. Taking ecstasy and going to open air clubs like Amnesia where DJ's like Alfredo were playing some of the early house imports.

September - Trevor and Ian invite their friend Paul Oakenfold to Ibiza for his birthday. Paul brings with him Johnny Walker, Nicky Holloway and Danny Rampling. Trevor and Ian close the project bar and they spend the rest of the summer back and forth between Amnesia and Cafe Del Mar.

Autumn - The newly converted Ibiza crew return to London and immediately they feel something has changed. "How can they forget what has happened in Ibiza over the summer". Paul starts to open the original Project club 'after hours'. At 2am when the club officially finished they would let the Ibiza crew in and party until 6am. This lasts only a few weeks until the police raid it.

November - Danny Rampling and Jenni open Klub Sch-oom (soon shortened to Shoom) at a fitness centre near Southwark bridge, just south of the Thames in London. Two weeks later Paul Oakenfold holds the first Future in the backroom of the Heaven, a huge club on London's Charing Cross. (see Rave Timeline)
