    A couple years ago i graduated high school in the US where i grew up. My parents were going to move to fill positions at the uni of Manchester. They convinced me to apply to the uni on top of ones in the US. I got into Manchester, as well as some schools i liked in the US. I stayed behind in the US.

    One thing I feel like i am missing out on by staying in the US is techno, raves, and a club life. (Or would have going to the uni of Manchester for comp sci have raped me up the butt and turned me into a nerd?) How is the techno scene in Manchester. Problem is, my favorite techno by far is the old skool breakbeat stuff!! But i do enjoy DNB (have been a listener since 2003), dubstep, anything heavy

    I visit england a lot, and i don't feel like i'm missing out on some crazy music scene (all i hear about is Basshunter. wtf is that shit?) but i believe there is some crazy underground shit goin on! someone fill me in!!

    i was born in santa cruz, but grew up in north carolina. the south woooohooooo no one listens to techno here, but there is at least a lot of venues that have awesome metal bands come through.

    My mate is @ uni in manchester, him & his bro DJ/Live sax perfomance over house/electro, and he runs his own night called audacity.

    There's always stuff on there it's a city. You'd be spoilt for choice.

    between a low hum and a high whine
    techno used to be huge in this town.
    filthy warehouse parties and acid nights with Havoc @ The Phoenix.
    i miss those times.. :(
