In year 1996 were already tried the frist music producing programs like Sound Club and Fast Tracker.
After a certain pause, he realized that in Estonia more people appeared, who enjoyed the harder electronic music, and so he started to add some fire to the Estonian hardcore life.

Priit Lume, known as DJ Conflict in the drum’n’bass community, discovered underground dance music in the middle of the 1990’s thanks to a legendary radio show on Radio 2 hosted by Raul Saaremets and Dr. Koit. Although his favorite playlists consisted mostly of hip-hop, breakbeat and hardcore tunes, drumnbass started to draw more and more of his attention after hearing a track called Ready Or Not remix. In the end of 1997 Conflict experienced his first rave. The way the magic and music was being created out of the grooves of vinyl left him with an unforgettable impression, and has fascinated him ever since.

SPEAKERQUEEN – Rave.ee
She is Estonia’s first hardcore lady. Young, talented, pretty and very fucked up in the head. Her sets can mash up the sound of harsh industrial, speedy noiseful hardcore and psytrance with insane guitar riffs.
Ever since the introduction to rave scene and electronic music, it has won her heart. Rhytmic noise, industrial and most of all hardcore were musicstyles for which she was born. She wanted to write, to play such music because it .. simply was so energetic, emotion-driven (anger, hate, agressive behaviour…)
Speakerqueen is a real fan of agressive and energetical music, which is seen in her sets. Only the fastest, the most memorable tracks, and all compiled into a whole musical story of her own.
She is currently a DJ from the largest and oldest rave communities in Estonia: rave.ee. Past experience includes the oldest goth event Beats From the Vault, a newer cyber event: Dark Rave, hardcore parties from TheBalticStorm.com, ebm/industrial party from Moscow: Synthdrom, psytrance events from the oldest psy-community in Estonia, LSD, and many others.
All in all, her performance is mind-breaking, it can either make is throw out from the irate amount of energy she can put into it, or either flush your brains into the toilet if she goes with psytrance.
