20 years ago, the future of music looked hopeful.

Rave was taking over - invading the charts and rocking soundsystems in fields and warehouses across the globe.

Clubbers still remembered Acid House from the first time round. You could buy a Roland TB-303 for less than the cost of a family car. There was no such thing as EDM. Keith Flint hadn't started any fires. Record shops still lined the high streets. The amen break was still new and exciting. 'Hoover' meant more than just a vacuum cleaner brand. Jungle was about to be massive. Ibiza wasn't full of lager louts on package holidays. Daft Punk hadn't even discovered lounge disco yet...

...and a man named Mark Archer from a duo called Altern-8 was bringing the noise.

Then the unthinkable happened.

The infection began...

Shows with names like X-Factor and Pop Idol started beaming their evil music virus into households through the television screens, infecting entire households, communities, and cities.  Vocoders began being used in new, horrible, awful ways. Richie Hawtin got a stupid haircut. Nations of music zombies arose, and the rave Armageddon approached...

Mark Archer of Altern-8 foresaw this cataclysm. He tried to warn you - preaching 'Armageddon' while wearing a Hazmat Suit & protective gear, taking to the streets of Stoke-upon-Trent in an armoured vehicle...sadly too many failed to take heed...


But never fear! It's not too late
We are here to save you.


With our RAVE ARMAGEDDON SURVIVAL KIT you can arm yourself with the sonic ammunition needed to take back the airwaves.


Nine heavyweight remixes across two coloured 12" vinyl records of Mark Archer's classic anthem ARMAGEDDON by these brave souls of techno, rave and house: RADIOACTIVE MAN, DJ MARKY, CEEPHAX ACID CREW, MARK BROOM, NIGHTWAVE, THE HACKER, RENNIE FOSTER, KiNK, and NEIL LANDSTRUMM

And we need your help to make this happen...

RAVE ARMAGEDDON SURVIVAL PACK
The ultimate package in the war against bad music.

Arrives in a limited edition, hand numbered package (just 101 copies)
Contains both 12" coloured vinyl, t-shirt, sticker pack, and download code. Also contains a Rave SOS Flare (glowstick), Atmospheric Filtration System (Vicks Vaporub), Eye, Face, and Hand Protective Gear (sunglasses, dust mask, and white gloves) and a limited edition mix CD by Mark Archer himself.

Risks and challenges

Here at Balkan Vinyl we released Mark Archer's FREQUENCY remix 12" which sold out completely - with four new versions by Luke Vibert, DMX Krew, Ben Sims & Paul Mac (Killa Productions) and AGT Rave Cru.

We plan to make this release of Armageddon even more special. Mark will be re-recording a rebuild of the original track for free, full high-quality download - regardless of whether you purchase the remixes or not.

If we do not hit the Kickstarter funding target, we will be releasing the tracks on standard 12" black vinyl later in 2013, however without the Rave Armageddon Survival Pack or t-shirt extras.

We are a small, independent label dedicated to vinyl releases with special, personal attention to details. This also means we don't have the purchasing power of a large record label, and is why we are running this particular release as a kickstarter. We need your support to get this project completed and spread the word - so if you do get on board, thank you!
