    At school drum 'n bass was the only thing i listened to and when i reached year 11 i stopped listening to it as much. DONT ASK ME WHY I DID, I JUST DID. Since i tured 18 im straight back into it again, raves r my life.
    I come from a place called Denham, near Uxbridge/ Slough you might have heard of it. I rave at Fabric nightclub in Faringdon but want to know new places that r close, is anywhere as good!?
    TELL ME FELLOW RAVERS

    Using the word rave in that context is so cliche, I find it funny. I used to say that all the time back in 99 when I was 17.

    I've been into this for so long that I don't even concider the music I listen to to be "rave". To me rave means very bad things, its a bad word. In the US rave means teenagers abusing drugs, trance music, Funky breaks partys with ppl smoking PCP, overdosing, arrests, SWAT, going before a judge for sentencing, partys getting busted and not getting your money back, and general illegalness. I want no part of those things unless if I'm the one donning the SWAT alphit or if I'm the judge.

    I need some law school sessions, then you can call me "your honor" :D

    Objection?
    :smash: Over ruled!

    sounds like the raves I went to! nah, any place with a speaker-stack, a dancefloor and some medicine is a rave I say.

    Give the kid a break.

    If he wants to call it a rave, then let him.

    He certainly deserves to be called an original junglist if he started before he was 11.

    i consider the term rave to be an illegal party in the hills not a clubnight

    Does the word "rave" not carry a negative stigma over in the UK?
