The Eighty Eight Podcast – Episode #05 – Raindance
Raindance Richard & Artist Pez Remember Acid House

The term legal has many definitions but history denotes Raindance as the first British dance party promoters granted an all night music and dance licence in 1990. RAINDANCE RICHARD has been at the helm of one of the longest running outfits in the UK. Richard started with Acid House but today stages multi-arena events playing Hardcore, Jungle, Drum n Bass and Garage music. PEZ was throwing up graffiti when Acid House arrived in the UK. He partied hard at all the big named clubs and events. Spotting an opportunity he seized on the idea of designing flyers for party promoters. Raindance became his number one client, designing countless flyers and visuals for their events.
