#100 Children

#100 Children – Robert Miles

A classic from the 90’s rave scene (possibly the classic). This track by Robert Miles was apparently intended to calm clubbers before they drove home. It was the prevailing opinion that the increase in the number of automobile accidents was due to ‘ravers’ driving home when they were over-tired (like that was the reason). The phrase ‘social Darwinism’ comes to mind. Miles has stated that the ‘children’ for whom the track is named, were the ones turning up dead in the Balkans at the time.
The track itself is very trancy with a so-called ‘dream house’ piano effect, which turned out to be very popular not just with ravers in clubs but in “every European country that has a chart”.

In short, it’s the perfect track to round off this playlist.
