House of Unity… the good old days

i was only about 14 and my old brother took me to see a Rave in Calgary.  He took me because i had been listening to tech for  over a year and trying to find new music in Lethbridge was impossible.  My bro and friends had been listening to techno for quite some time, there were making there own music and throwing house parties. but the music was always the  same. Back to the rave,  it started off at LCI taking a bus to calgary, the local community was there all supporting each other if you will. But the thing that i remember the most was the engery when we arrived. I was pretty intense, the reason i bring this up is because the ive been to other concert setting and nothing was quite like it. the music was raw and untouched. the sound were rough and unknown. Plus ever one interpreted the live mixing of music so differently.

Sinse those time the music has changed. no more Delta9 or Lenny D.  but hello Modana. what happen were did are the good music go. It gone, and replaced with music that will be sold to 11 teen year olds. those kids that cant decide if there a child or adult. Its horrible pretty soon they will be marketing to 4 and 5 years old on the radio. and the worst part is that its not going to be Fred Penner it will be Jay-z and snoop dog. Any way you look at it the music is being controlled and the you might like it being pushed away for the stuff they want you to like.

    Hey friend, nice to hear another voice that misses the days of the rave. Curious to know which raves you attended in Calgary. I used to be pretty big back into the scene when I was in high school. Nothing like the raw energy, adreenaline, and personal interpretations that this kind of music provides. This is obviously heightened by the use of drugs which I am not promoting just not gonna lie and deny my own personal experimentation. Fright Night Halloween 2000 was an incredible rave at the jam packed Max bell arena. Definately the wildest party I ever went to.
