Do you dig 'em? I've been to a few really nice ones over the summer and I'm going to one of the biggest ones ever thrown in the state tomorrow night, and just let me say it has to be one of the greatest experiences a person can experience, and integral part of life. Have you guys been to a rave? What did you think about it?

Crowded space, lots of people, loud music, flashing lights and a general stereotype I don't associate with.


Love 'em.


Ah c'mon that makes it sound like a show. A show can have electronic music and still not be a rave. A rave isn't a show, its much more than a musical experience.

I'll be honest, I'm holding judgement until I've experienced a proper one. The closest I've got to was a local "young peoples bar" playing club music, with lights and stuff. Got very close to a club environment really. I keep hearing they're really good. Then again, those people couldn't really be associated with the Rock Music scene.

What are they like? Are they like the whole drug infested, *****monging stereotypes?

I once had an impromptu "rave" in an elevator in science museum in Connecticut. It was really just me, my lady, and a few friends humping eachother and any strangers that were unlucky enough to get in while I played a techno ringtone on my phone. We got kicked out after a few hours and they never want us to come back. It was fun.

But I've never been to a real rave.

No not at all, at least the ones I go to. I guess it depends on the venue, but the ones I go to are more like electronic music parties than anything else. There is like 500 people in a huge complex made up of about 10 rooms, with two DJs, one on each end. There is always a dress theme, a random movie playing on the wall, fire dancers, fire eaters, professional artists that paint on the walls to the music, so it just makes for an unbelievable environment unlike anything you can imagine or experience anywhere else.

EDIT: And you just go out and dance for 10 hours however you want and come away feeling on a whole new level of oneness with the universe. Awesome

Is this aforementioned 'rave' the same or different to what is known as a 'doof'?

Not sure if I spelled that right...

Depends what you mean by "rave music" really... I don't know what it would be nowadays but The Prodigy were successful initially because of their huge involvement with Rave culture... so their earlier albums would be a good place to start.

Edit: Actually... just listen to Fat Of The Land.

Not entirely true. They evolved from the Rave scene.

hm...i kind of like it.


To be honest, I couldn't stand listening to this at home. But out drinking with friends and it's in the background, it's not the music you care about but the energy and groove. That's why it's a simple 4/4 beat with a "donk" on every beat. Everyone can groove to that. It's normally heavy bass too.

What I would love is going to a Dubstep club. My God that would rock my ear drums.

Yeah i don't think i could listen to for the next hour, but in a crowd it'd probably feel and sound pretty awesome.


I've never listened to dubstep either. I feel so...uncool

I know it's not all the same. I've just never really listened to it much.

I had never heard dubstep until this thread happened, and I just went and listened to it. I honestly would be afraid of listening to it so loud. Legitimately afraid that my lungs would collapse because the frighteningly stupidly massively insane amount of bass. I played it relatively quietly and it fucked my skull.

Really cool, though and I now appreciate dance music a little more. Going to a Dubstep club would be quite an experience. I learned something tonight.

I always get lost and throw up on ecstasy, so I don't really like raves all that much.
#37
hah good to see all the negative response in this thread :P

I rave a lot actually, I'll go out to an EDM (electronic dance music) club or a rave every weekend. its really fun, but its not for everyone. the people are usually really cool and friendly, unless they've taken way more than they should, which gets annoying. and the music, if you really enjoy it, is amazing in context with the lights, and dancing.

It's not that hard. If you think you need drugs to enjoy dance music you're doing it wrong.
