hey electrode, if you are in chicago and you go to parties i would gaurentee that i know you, i have been on the scene for the past 2 ears and went to 2 parties atleast, every weekend for a year...
what croud/dj's do you hang with?




I'm actually about an hour west of Chicago. And I doubt we would know each other...I just moved here 4 months ago. Haven't been to a single midwest party. In fact haven't been to a party since 2002, when I went to the Love Parade in Berlin. I went to partys from 1996 until 2001, and those were all on the east coast. I lived like 1.5 hours away from both NYC and Philly, so those were my spots. If you know of any GOOD parties in Chi-Town, please tell me! I'd actually like to check out a good mid-west rave.

i think raves were the 90's we need something for the 2000's beside rap gangsta shit...hmm any ideas?




We have something very similar in Australia which is quickly gaining a greater following than raves.

It is called a "doof", which is basically an outdoor rave. The name comes from the sound of psytrance pumping in the distance, the tell-tale "DOOF DOOF DOOF!"  :cool: They are usually held out in the country or in picturesque locations, which adds an entirely new dimension to the experience as opposed to being holed up in a hot, sweaty warehouse.

The people that frequent these events are usually of the beatnick/hippy kind, not the pill-popping pimple farm teens. I get the feeling that PLUR means more to these people than it does to the city-folk, who as someone said, are more than likely filled with more E than PLUR.

Also, these are VERY spiritual events. I can guarantee you that not one single person goes there solely for the purpose of enjoying the music. There seems to be a synergistic effect between being in natural surrounds, listening to the beats and stomping your feet! On a number of occasions my friend has experienced OBE's and saw a "group energy" that was very palpable and extremely pleasant to behold.

There is also an over-abundance of drugs (more of the psychedelic disposition as opposed to powders/pills).

The vibe and energy at these events are of a completely different nature to raves, which place more of an emphasis on eye-candy than growth and spirituality.

But anyway, each to their own!

BF.
