So I went to Global 2013 with my cousin and her girlfriend a few nights ago. It was a good time, but they had a good deal of dubstep. After Global and on our way back to town, we talked about rave music. I personally liked Happy Hardcore, but they both prefered dubstep. Anyway, I'm asking what you guys personally like to listen to at raves.

Happy Hardcore

I honestly prefer hard house like Afrojack and heavier dubstep. Hardcore's alright, I can always do with a little Dark Oscillators and the like since I've been casually trying to learn to Melbourne Shuffle for the longest time.

Truthfully though, hard house and dubstep will always be my favorite rave music, especially considering I got introduced to both genres when I started raving years ago and fell in love long before either firmly hit the mainstream.

Raves suck major dick these days though, nothing but rebellious little sh*t teenagers out to get f*cked up. None of the heart that it used to have, PLUR is all but dead.

EDIT: Afrojack's Take Over Control, this song always makes me f*cking lose it.

Most of the raves that go on in my city are House, Techno, bit of Dubstep.. House has really taken over though. There's a big enough House scene here. It used to be more Techno (I think) but now all the after parties and raves are playing house.

I don't know what I prefer.. I mean I really like a versatility. House's 4/4 timing can just get repetitive. The best raves are organised by people who like multiple genres of music for me. Start off with the generally undanceable Dubstep, Move on to Drum & Bass and then on to some banging Techno or House

Also depends on what the vibe is like. I went to a day time rave where they got a huge and expensive soundsystem which was star of the show and played Dub music all day. People were tripping and doing pills and smoking green. The other room had more banging Jungle/D&B.

If people are doing some progressive music, crossing genres then even better than having some conformist generic music playing for 24hrs straight.

Nice songs. I favorited some of them, especially the ones posted by VF94.

I have never been to a rave before but I suppose I would like to go to one as long as the music is decent. The most interesting music for me to hear would be house, techno, and drum and bass\jungle, all from the '90s or early '00s. Modern music is great too, but the modern music I generally imagine being played in clubs is average compared to older music.

Dubstep was never rave music, its just half time garage crossed with jump up dnb. When the Americans/Canadians got hold of it it just got horrible, they have a great understanding of sound design (skrilex, datsik) but seemed to completely misunderstand the sound and skip the groove element and low down sub that makes the dirty midrange growl sounds worth anything. Dubstep used to be a good sub-genre back in the simple wobble days up to about the time chase & status got into it with eastern jam (biiiig tune, but even then that dirty bass was a preset from a soft synth) just got dry after that imo.

Happy hardcore, while cheese, is great for a rave. the mcees know how to get people live, or did back in the day. They took control over the ravers and made things fun even if you weren't on E.

My favorite sound has always been dnb from back when it was jungle.
