A little Raver Knowledge

Introduction

Rave music may refer to the late 1980s/early 1990s genres of house, new beat, breakbeat, acid house, techno and hardcore dance music as well as to any other genre of electronic dance music that may be played at a rave. In addition to this it can also be used to describe any type of electronic dance music that is played at a party in order to “rave” or get people dancing.

The term “rave” has been used to describe a wide variety of large dance events among various cultures since the 1980s. It originated from the use of the word “rave” in 1960s counterculture to describe upbeat impromptu parties held by youth with psychedelic rock music. Starting in about 2007, raves began taking place more frequently in warehouses or large venues with powerful sound systems instead of underground locations where people danced without regard for health and safety considerations like those seen at earlier raves.

The term “rave” was adopted to describe parties that were devoted to the hardcore techno genre. These parties were often held in warehouses or outdoor venues featured a high level of security and payment (to prevent police raids) and provided a variety of dance styles including techno, trance, house music

Rave is a type of large dance party featuring performances by DJs and occasionally live performers playing EDM. Raves are usually held in warehouses, clubs, or outdoor fields. Although some raves are legal and mainstream, many raves are held in places that are not sanctioned or regulated by law. Raves can be seen as part of the broader category of electronic dance music (EDM).

Rave culture consists of a subculture that emerged from acid house parties and other underground club scenes in the 1980s.[1] The term rave was used to describe the subculture in its heydays later on but now can be used to describe any large-scale dance party with an emphasis on electronic music.[2][3] The word “rave” has been incorporated into mainstream vocabulary[4] such as ‘raving mad'[5] or being described as ‘off his/her rocker’.[6][7]

Raves have often been known for drug use,[8][9][10] sexual promiscuity,[11][12][13] dangerousness[14], hedonism[15], etc.[16].

A rave can be held in an abandoned warehouse, a remote field or any other place that has been selected by the host of the party. The first parties were often promoted by radio stations and featured DJs playing exclusive music[17] from their own record collections[18] as well as tracks they had bought from their local record stores.[19][20].

Hard trance is an electronic dance music style that originated in the early/mid-1990s in Germany.

Hard trance is an electronic dance music style that originated in the early/mid-1990s in Germany. It emerged as a subgenre of trance music, which is characterized by a fast tempo and synthesizer melodies. Like most forms of EDM, hard trance generally focuses on the dance floor experience rather than being intended for listening at home or to be played at parties.

Hard trance was popularized by German producers Peran Binzer, Juergen Teller and DJ Niels Van Gogh.

The name of the genre is derived from the word “hard,” which is short for hardcore. Hard trance was one of the first forms of EDM to emerge as a subgenre and gain popularity in Europe. It has since been adopted by many other genres, including hardstyle, hard house and techno.

Hardstyle originally began to emerge from somewhere between hard trance, hardcore and gabber.

Hardstyle originally began to emerge from somewhere between hard trance and hardcore. Meanwhile, the music also started to become influenced by gabber. The Dutch DJ and producer Paul Elstak is credited with defining the sound of hardstyle in 1994 with his release ‘Follow Me’ which was released on vinyl by Rotterdam Records. Other early influential producers include Zany and Crypsis who were affiliated with the label Scantraxx Records (Scantraxx was founded by Elstak).

Hardstyle is a subgenre of electronic dance music that originated in the Netherlands in the early 1990s, influenced by hardcore techno and gabber. It has been defined as “a style of electronic dance music characterized by a tempo of around 145 to 155 beats per minute (bpm), where each beat consists of a kick drum, open hat cymbal choke noise snare [and] closed hat snare.”

Hardstyle is often confused with hardcore techno, gabber and its subgenre hard trance. The confusion is due to hardstyle’s origins, as it was created by mixing the fast tempos and beats of hardcore techno with the melodic elements of Eurodance-influenced hard trance. Hard trance can be seen as a precursor to hardstyle, as they share many similarities. However, hard trance has a more uplifting sound than hardstyle.

Broken beat is an umbrella term used to describe a number of related but distinct styles of electronic dance music that incorporate different kinds of sounds in addition to the normal four-on-the-floor beats used in most styles of house or techno.

Broken beat is an umbrella term used to describe a number of related but distinct styles of electronic dance music that incorporate different kinds of sounds in addition to the normal four-on-the-floor beats used in most styles of house or techno. The name derives from the fact that these styles typically use sampled breakbeats as their rhythmic foundation.

One possible source for this style is the sampling of breakbeats from 1970s funk and disco records, which were often looped and used as percussive elements. It can also be traced back to Jamaican dub music, where the drum breaks were isolated on vinyl records by sound engineers and replayed by DJs over reggae basslines; this approach was later adopted by hip hop DJs who cut up samples from these records along with other popular dance tracks like Kraftwerk’s “Trans Europe Express” (1977) or Giorgio Moroder’s “From Here To Eternity” (1978).

The first recognizable form of breakbeat was a style of jungle music called hardcore. This genre was developed by DJs in the mid-1990s, and it featured fast tempos, heavy basslines and dark, oppressive atmospheres. The drum patterns were often taken from old funk records that had been sampled and looped; these samples were often chopped or distorted in some way so they sounded more like they belonged in jungle than they did on their original recordings.

New Beat (also known as EBM – Electronic Body Music) is a style of electronic dance music that emerged from Belgium in the late 1980s as an outgrowth of EBM itself.

New Beat is a group of electronic dance music genres that emerged from Belgium in the late 1980s as an outgrowth of EBM itself. New Beat was popularized in Europe between 1989 and 1992. The sound was largely influenced by Detroit techno, Chicago house music and electro-industrial music.

The term New Beat is also used to describe the revival of New Beat in the late 2000s and early 2010s. New Beat was popularized in Europe between 1989 and 1992, with acts like 2 Unlimited and Technotronic topping charts across Europe. The sound was largely influenced by Detroit techno, Chicago house music and electro-industrial music.

Acid house developed in the mid-1980s among house DJs in Chicago who were looking for a new sound that would impact crowds on the dancefloor.

Acid house is a style of electronic dance music that emerged from Chicago in the mid-1980s. It was a direct descendant of the house music style, which had emerged from disco and soul in the mid-1970s. Acid house was characterized by its use of synthesizers and electronic percussion, as well as its emphasis on melody over rhythm.

Acid house also influenced other genres such as techno and trance music.

Conclusion

Rave music is a style of dance music that emerged in the late 1980s, with its roots in techno, house and acid house. The genre is most commonly associated with Ibiza and the UK rave scene of the late ’80s and early ’90s.
