So, I have a friend who is hosting a rave at his house. This will be the first rave I've ever been to, and his basement will just be filled with people. To put less pressure on him, I told him that I would get the music and the X.

I've already got enough X for us, but my trouble is the music. Does anyone have any artists that they would recommend that are best? I guess I'm mostly looking for techno and electronica type of music, but I'm not really into that kind. So I need help from the pit to recommend me music!

I need probably more than 3 hours of music, so anything you guys recommend I'll look at. Thanks!

Paragon X9 from newgrounds. Her music is free to download, and I cannot even tell you how many times I just break out raving to it. xD

Bands&Artists > Other > Techno & Dance-I know, it's great

For an actual response: tune in to krankydigital.com, download stuff from djfez.com, etc. Do you have anything in mind, exactly, or do you know anything about dance genres at all?

Yeah, I lol'd at "rave". It's not a rave unless you have copious amounts of illegal narcotics in a warehouse somewhere.

This is a good idea, if its just individual songs you'll have people constantly trying to put on a new song.

very true, download some sets (http://www.tranceaddict.com/livesets.shtml or google around) and decide which ones you like best.

edit: word of advice, anything but the dj tiesto set

Thanks guys, all this help is appreciated. I'm not really sure what I want as far as music, I've decided what I'm looking for is anything up-beat and a fast tempo.

And I've managed to buy enough ecstasy for about a hit for 25-30 people, it's probably going to be crazy. hopefully some people will bring their own, or it might not matter if everyone is drunk enough.

I'm not necessarily saying that, I'm saying anyone who doesn't get some will probably get most of the alcohol in place of it.

You gotta have God is an Astronaut.

It's not dance/electronica/techno, but if you're on X, you probably wont care

well you have to have a chillout room, silly.

CHILLOUT:
Autechre
Eluvium
anything from Aphex Twins "Drukqs"
Air
Portishead
Massive Attack
Boards of Canada

DANCING????

SLOW TEMPO
Excision

some Bassnectar

sorry don't know many slow ones

FASTER (140-160bpm)
(mostly hardstyle)
Blutonium Boy
Alpha Twins
Dark Oscillators
Basshunter
Scantraxx Roots
Crystal Castles
Daft Punk

that's all i can think of right now.

EDIT: go to soundcloud.com, search a genre, and just download mixes.
