What is NE-RAVES?
I've been going to raves for a few of years now. For the most part
I've been a lurker among the group simply because my schedual is too
busy. Recently, I have met more and more ravers, locally and
nationally, due to the pre-rave parties and the Internet. The Internet
has mail lists that act as a bulletin board for all the ravers in a
certain area. The mail list in my area is called NE-Raves. NE-Raves
stands for (N)orth (E)astern United States (Raves) and is a mailing
list gone berzerk! Currently, the list is administered by
Through NE-Raves, a unity of friends get together, coordinate rides,
attend raves, and then review them. Typically, NE-Ravers wear badges
to raves in order to identify each other in real life. What is a rave?
Well, a rave is basically an all night, DJ buffet. DJ's take turns
spinning, sampling and creating their favorite techno music to large masses of
candy eating and candy flipping insomniacs.
In my humble opinion, `ravers' tend to be a friendly bunch. Of course

fun-loving creatures who love toys ... like LEGOS! Yup, with a complete
list of sets including
the new release Spyrius
From the mailbag ...
Typically, I'm working in the pit
and listening to some techno
on the cd-rom.
About Techno/Rave ...
I find this hard to describe. My music history path has wandered some and I've found that techno genres inspire me in different ways. Basically, I like techno for it's morphing percussion. I really love percussion especailly when it's fast and layered. I also like climactic music and techno fills all of these requirements. I also like techno because it is created and developed by the free masses. Here are some interviews with some DJ's artists:
