    forgive the sick pun.

    so, i went to a rave on the weekend with this deaf lad.. one of the main skankers of the night aswell he was. Hes completely stone deaf and has been all his life.. and i was abit naive thinking surely hes not gunna enjoy it as much and thought it was abit weird that he came along with us..

    anyway, turns out he was sound as fuck, even had a pilled up text chat with him sat down in one of the arenas..

    everytime a bangin tune dropped in he went nuts, he was fuckin loving it.. turns out he travels all over the country ravin, into shit loads of different dj's and what not..

    so in reply to the thread a while back.. deaf or blind.. ill go with deaf.. due to the fact he was brockin out with the best of em, even went up to the main speaker stack and stuck his ear on it and started do a one footer..

    biggup the ravin deaf cru

    I used to know someone whos sister was deaf but she could still hear bass so she used to rinse all my old jungle/dnb tapes.


    come to think of it I never saw em again haha




    but yeh the point is deaf peeps can still pick up on a heavy b-line.

    i was stood with my manager in the store the other day and this guy walks in and starts browsing the store and i figured id show off a bit and called on him immediately i said good afternoon sir, looking for some seeds? and he just flat out ignored me and proceeded to browse the other end of the store. i still wanted to show off for my manager so i said excuse me sir! would you like a menu? and he cold ignored me again, and my manager left. so i was a little bummed when my manager left, and kept watching the guy and as soon as i made eye contact with him, cos i thought maybe he didnt understand english or something, i said WOULD YOU LIKE A MENU and he squeaks in that high pitched mong deaf way 'im deaf' which sounds like EHUM DFFFFF and points to his ears IT WAS ALL I COULD DO NOT TO SAY SOMETHING RUDE WHEN HE TURNED HIS BACK

    I remember in the sanctuary @ milton keynes years ago there used to be a blind man there a lot of the times i travelled up, I had chatted to him a few times and if I'd see him at a rave a would always say hello to him and he would immediately pick up on who it was.. he would ask me to guide him to the centre of the dancefloor if we was on his own and just make sure he was ok shockin out for a while.. So big up to all the blind and deaf cru

    Nuff deaf people hit D&B raves man.

    Used to go raving with a bunch of 'em in Nottingham.

    Obviously you can feel the bassline & if you get close enough to the speaker, even the top end.

    One guy used to bet pillheads cash he could keep his head in a bassbox for X amount of time.

    :D

    We have this deaf guy at work, works in the bakery, and these bakers love to debag each other, normally only pulling down the trousers. But this time the guy got debagged and they pulled down his boxers at the same time. A manager happened to be walking past at the same time lookend into the bakery, and this fella was standing there with his bollox swinging around. People got sacked.

    i met a deaf lad in a gabber rave we had on in blackpool. he could feel the kick drums. fuckin lovin it as well he was.

    i'd rather be blind to be honest. don't think just feeling the bass or the drums would be enough. you'd have to play your music uber loud at home and get evicted all the time.

    Never come across any deaf peeps in raves.....

    But there's always a dwarf/midget @ most of the jump-up raves I go to. Dresses like a propa rudey with all his mates, who are 'normal' size, and the last few times I've seen him he's been with a propa stunner as well. So.....

    Shout-out to the little people as well!
