   Tom Wilson RIP
Unfortunately earlier today the much loved and respected DJ, Tom Wilson from Scotland and Radioforth (forthone), ReZerection, Stepping Out fame, sadly and very suddenly passed away today, our heart felt warmth goes out to his family and I'm sure you will all join in with messages of support for a true legend and pioneer of the Scottish dance scene.

Tom Wilson has an album coming out on Rumour Records very shortly, it is unclear at the moment if this will be released due to this sad news, but very fitting as a tribute album if it did get released.

Background on Tom Wilson:
Tom Wilson has been at the forefront of the Scottish dance scene for more years than he cares to remember! His legendary dance show on Forth FM ran since 1985. Because the show was only broadcast to East and Central Scotland, dance fans would go to extraordinary lengths to hear it. It's a fact that 5 guys from Newcastle would all pile into an old Transit van every Saturday and drive up to an area in Scotland where they could hear it! Tapes of the show were sent all over the place, that's why you often heard Tom doing requests for listeners in Canada, Australia or Hong Kong! This was before the Internet sent radio signals across the globe. Tom is also a music producer and has released around 10 singles including the club classic 'Technocat' which gave him a top 40 hit in the UK and charted in several European countries.

   Free 96k radio outages
You may or may not have noticed our free 96k radio stream has been down for the last 24 hours, our main relay server to the free 96k stream has vanished for some reason, while all other bitrates and formats have been unaffected the free 96k stream (our most popular) has been down.

We have implemented our stand by server for the free 96k stream to help hope with demand until we sort it out.

   The Best of Clubscene
Clubscene Records kicked off in the summer of '92 born out of the monthly Clubscene free monthly publication which became the 'read' for all Scotland's clubbing generation.

This Best Of Clubscene CD is sure to bring back many a memory from raves gone by with a selection of tracks that is sure to bring out the white gloves, airhorns and face masks of many an 'old skool' raver. ClubScene's first official release was 'Obsession' by Ultra-sonic a band which went onto become a firm favorite within the worldwide rave scene with releases and tours in the UK, Germany, Australia & Japan an extra special bonus for Ultrasonic fans is a brand new mix of 'Check Your Head' by The Delegates. Featuring cuts from the likes of Ultimate Buzz, TTF and The Rhythmic State whose PA's were an essential part of the thriving rave scene.

Many of these tracks have been long sought after by those who heard them the first time round and now need to replace their well worn copies and for those who were too young the first time round but are now keen to find out what it was all about 'back in the day'.

The complete tracklist is here and The Best of Clubscene can be purchased online now.

   Picture disc goodness
Everyone loves a picture disc, they seem to defy all logic you think you knew about vinyl records. Not to disappoint Evolution Records with the upcoming release of Scott Brown's Hardwired CD are at least releasing one possibly more picture disc's released around the same time to promote the album.

The last album Hardcorevolution from Scott Brown and Evolution Records had two of the best picture discs both sound wise and visually released in hardcore today, we at HappyHardcore.com are quite sure Evolution Records wont disappoint this time around. Expect the disc's out around the same time as the album.



100& FAT FREE - Picture disc's coming soon
