I'm not ashamed to be part of the 'E' generation either, it was such good fun and I'm glad I was doing it all at that time.

Was just remembering back to the late 80s early 90s when some of us used to go out to the old raves until it went into main stream clubs, have your musical tastes changed since then? Only oldskool or keep up with the current hardcore scene? Must admit I have to be in the mood now to listen to some trance, techno or happy hardcore. Do you keep to a particular genre like speed garage, techno, happy hardcore, trance, drum and bass etc? im a big prodigy fan,seen them twice,got there cds,you canni beat music for the jilted generation..for raves,we always took turns at driving,so when it was my turn it was funny seeing evryone of there head on drugs,i point and laff,does that sound horrid??? cause like it or not ppl take or took drugs at raves,personally i sat in a feild wi magic mushrooms.
I think there are far too many DJ's playing boring hardcore stomping about behind the turntables gurning and punching their arms into the air on every beat, but that doesn't impress me much!
The scenes gone too weird for my liking, personally I can only manage drum and bass, oldskool, and breakbeat, oh and turntablism as well. Ah, the old days.....*drifts off on a sea of memories with stiff nips and the hair on the back of her neck standing up...*Yeah went to many raves, ect, still listen to my old rave tunes especialy when i`m cleaning the house, gets it done a bit quicker, these days i love DJ Teisto, and a few others, like dance music, but not the ministry of sounds stuff I am an old raver..
Me and a mate introduced early dance music like orbital " chime " and bam bam " wheres your child " to our local clubs in our hometown.
I've seen many different forms of dance music come and go , but the one that endures for me to this day is Detroit techno ( the original techno , not this ravey crap ) that spawned people like dan curtin , luke slater , dave clarke , jeff mills etc........i spent a long time tracking down such classics as Eon " infinity " , Juan Atkins " techno music " , blake baxter " when we used to play " , and detroit techno has had a huge influence on the music i make myself , although these days , i tend to listen to a genre called IDM / glitch which is really experimental and seeks new ground.hardcore music is live and kicking down your local gym...there are many hardcore tracks that are used for tracks in Body Combat classes!
(No famous dj's i might add..dj's who keep the oldskool scene alive).
Forever a part of me.hahah -- i used to be a big clubber , and spent many a friday night in the limelight , or Shine -- both in belfast.
Manchester was the initial fascination with Megadog, The Herbal Tea Parties, Acid Rock, and Havok..
