I need a rave name!

Is there a webpage of ravenames and where can I find it?

What's a rave name? When would you use it?

-- Anonymous, September 07, 2000

I really dont think there is a rave page where you can find actual Rave Names. A raver name nickname you have to earn it from like an other Raver usually one who has been raving a long time. Like Ive been Raving for six yrs now. My real NAME Is Ruby-Violet Tine but I go by Rainbow Cause I look like the HAUMAN Version of Rainbow Brite. But also Your name you can come up with your self like Something cute that you like. I.E.

I.E. my group of raver friends They go by Sparkles, Sparkle-E, Stardust, StarShine, GlitterBay-B, Pnut, etc.. something that fits their rave personality. Well I hope you can make one or find one that suits you. How about this one if you belive in PLUR I like this one PLURFairy . Well goodnight and P.L.U.R.

whats up kidd, this is what i think, if theres one thing about yourself that you KNOW noone else has, or one attribute to your dancing, or one charachteristic of yourself that you think is unique, you can name it.. say for instance me... im always dancing even when everyone else is sitting down, my nickname is energizer bunny.... or say that when you dance you sweat like a pig..:-P, hehehe {i know thats gross but.....} you could be called piggy or something cute like that, but anyway, good luck ok? Much l-o-v-e Anita

Hey :o)~* I agree with Rainbow on this answer. A "raver nickname" kinda has to be simbolic but at the same time I think that a person who has been going to parties for awhile has to give you a name. For example my "Kand*E name" is HuGgLeBuG and a "raver" who had been going to parties for like 6 years gave me that nickname. He gave me this name along with a great explantion of why he gave it to me. He told me that since I was a Kand*E kid he would give me this nickname, because I love to hug people who I meet. He commented on the way I say hug also... I say "would you like a huggle?" So therefore he called me HuggleBug because I was I in his words was cute as a bug and loved to huggle...so I think you need to have a simbolic name that represents something about yourself, but at the same time I think you need to be given a nickname by someone who has seen this special trait inside you. :o) Good Luck :o)

I also agree........ I "rave" name or club name should come from one who has been in the scene awhile. It's Kinda like a a special thing here in the 808 State to receive a club name from a Friend. Me, since I've been to a few diff. states and been through quite abit of Friends, I have inheirited a few names I.E.: T-Bone,SkInNyPiMp,O-Zone, ZeRoBoUnCe, And my current name....Telly B/C I Look like the dude off "KIDS". I've been in tha scene for about 4yrs. I am 20 going on 21 and i enjoy raving. To all my fellow Ravers.....I Don't have Nut'n but Love 4 ya! Peace out From The 808 State...Telly....OUT! P.L.U.R.

Hi there, I agree that I don't think that you can just go to any website and have a rave name picked out. Even though I have heard of a website just don't know what it is. I have a bunch of rave names. Two of my favorites are "Giggles" :) because I giggle and laugh alot. I also have "Butterfly" because I love everything about butterflies and collect everything about them. I also have tattoo of a rainbow with a butterfly in it on my ankle and on my chest I have chinese writing that says butterfly. My next tat is going to be a blacklight tattoo on my right cheek(face). Well anyways earn your rave name or find something that is just you. Something you like!! Happy Raving!!! P.L.U.R!!!! Have fun and be safe!!!!

You all are so retarded. God damn, now I know why I don't go to raves anymore. I wish "Kandy" kids never existed, so people wouldn't be trying to hug me and give my dumb bracelets. Remember, angry ravers existed before your gay asses. I'm from DC, and Kandy kids didn't exist about 6 or so years ago. Jesus, who the hell came up with this crap?

Also, if you notice, the Kandy kids are always the kids picked on in school. Gee, I wonder why.

If any of you fags with the same names (every kandy kid seems to be named bubbles or pixie), I'll sock ya.

Go to hell fags. Thank god you stay away from Drum and Bass.

Cor, wot a great advert for drum 'n' bass, eh!!! Wonder if Johnny Eat Me (Surely a Freuidan slip there!!!) knows that d'n'b actually developed from UK jungle and rave in the early to mid 90s?!?!? Presumably this makes him the ravey equivalent of those "ex-gays"...)

Anyway- rave names?!?! Crikey!!! This seems like the old 90s demo scenes on the 16-bit computers, where everyone called themselves "Gruhthyx from The Unholy Ghettoblaster of Doom (UGD)", and from whence I got my current nickname!!! (as a member of The Senior Dads!!!) Good to see people keeping up this worthy practice!!!!

I just stumbled across this page, and wow! I am so glad the Australian rave scene hasn't been taken over by little raver kiddies like it obviously has been in the US. Rave were created for people to join together to apreciate great music dance and be happy. But it seems from everything I see about the US rave scene that is all been taken over by kids running around trying to be cute

-- Anonymous, October 09, 2001

ok, i don't rave but i know what dave is talking about. everyone in the us that i've seen (as compared to those in europe and other places) is trying to be all fuzzy & glittery, when a real rave is a music celebration with people jsut wanting to have a good time. i understand that 'kandy kids' are having a good time, but they are starting to take over the whole scene.

Just so you all know... I have been seriously disturbed by some of the things that people said in this answer....

Ravers are people that go to places to listen to music and dance and chill with their friends and meet new people... Ravers are not just freaks, or fags, or anything that anyone else is who hangs with people they care about... I am a raver... and have been for a LONG time.. I understand the scene is getting tore by people who cant understand it... TOOO BAD FOR YOU... you will never know the love and feeling and the effort that goes into these things and the feeling you get when you can say that you are a TRUE raver.... Its about love and peace... LEARN IT... and love it :-)

Peace... Love... and Happiness...

nicknames are for people trying to hide somthing, usually people who dont like who they are and want to be someone else. you all need counseling

Ok for one, I agree about the need to earn a raver name. It's like your mark. I got mine from my boyfriend who is now my husband. I'm so glad to see you that you want a name. I remember I couldn't wait to get mine but I had to until my group had agreed with my boyfriend. Another thing is I can't understand where all the PLUR went!?! I have been raving since I was 16 and all I can say is that the LA raves that I grew up with ahve always been about just haveing fun! I have always wore my purple cat in the hat with fairy wings bagg pants, big Goofy hands from Disney Land and LOTS of glitter and beads. Stick with the code! Peace Love Unity and RESPECT! Even if it doesn't agree with everyone elses! Kisses! *~Snuggle Bunny~*

Like all have said before me, it kinda has to be symbolic. All of there's are cute names but mine is just DEE. This name i got from my best friend "OP" because of the nickname of what i was on for my first rave. If i were you i would ask the people who know me best at the rave scene for suggestions. I really hope you find a rave name. PLUR!

My more known nickname is Orange because my hair is orange. The other is "#9 (number nine)" because of a drug experiment some friends were doing and I was the ninth person to participate. But nicknames aren't what the scene is about. It's about people uniting to enjoy music and be happy. Who cares if you have a nickname or not. And besides that, who cares if it's cute? Don't hide yourself.

Hewwo!!! How you doing dude? *HUGGIEZ and KISSIEZ* Anyways, I don't think there's a site for rave names and stuff. I had the same question when I just started raving. I just got into the scene, like, 5-6 months ago, and I really love raving and being a kandi kid! It's the happiest thing ever!!! You think of a cute name for u'r self. Something that you'll like. Or something that'll describe u'r whole personality. My rave name is LiQuId KaNdI PoP. I hope you have fun raving, and good luck! Keep on raving dude! I'm with you on this one, all the way!!!

i pretty much agree with the people that say that you should'nt go looking for a rave name. it has to just come to you or who ever gives it to you. i was given my name(CaSeyJoNes)about 6 months ago. Reason being is that i am pretty much obsessed with baseball, so one morning coming back from a rave in tokyo at a club called code, one of my best friends gave me this name because CaseyJones was a myth(ya know, Casey jones never struck out, he was a baseball legend)and it stuck with me ever since. Three of my best friends have the names: charliEbrown,J420, and Kronk....hope you find what you are lookin for...it's not over til' the last record spins....rave the planet......casEyjonEs

I have to reply in a neutral point of view I really enjoy rave and the unique ppl. as far as rave names go it just get's dawned on you one day for eg me i was giving this fellow raver a light show and mimic (my really good friend) came up to me and said i now dubb you SIR TRIPSALOT by the time that finished my light show guest was in freaky mellow trance and couldent move for 2 minutes.other rave names fellow ravers have ARACNAFUNK, TIGGER, SKETCHY, HAPPY, MITTENS. those are just a few. HEY and all you hard asses out there, raving is supposed to be a enjoyable event were every one can get along and express themselves kandi kids, jungle boyz, everyone out there. cliques and closed minded attitudes destroy what raves are all about till next time PLUR.!!!!

Hey all, or y'all (that's the southern in me) I would just say that nicknames or no names or whatever you may choose, shouldn't really be of any concern. When I go to a rave, it is not about the drugs, the nick names, or even the people. I go to listen, and then allow myself to dance along with the music. Whether it's trance, breakbeat, techno, house,d&B whatever... I appreciate talent. And when I am moved to dance by the music, ignoring all other motivations, that usually indicates talent to me. I think that the "rave" scene has at all times been infected, (if I may say) with those driven by less noble of motives to go. But at all times, there is a core of true fans. I consider myself to be one. The world created by the music (and for some enhanced by drugs and nicknames etc, I am not really trying to knock all that)is one of awe to me. and I can get that just listening to it in my dorm room, at any club, or preferrably at a rave. I just hope you all keep in mind the music, and it's future. Peace out y'all and i hope you have a marvelous New Year. I know I will be kicking it in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Rave Names... In my past 6 years of going to parties Ive come across some winners :O~ But you can't just make up a name. People have been calling me Shine since my first party. My Real name is Shiloh. All of my friends call me Shy. I told someone my name was Shy... and they were like.."What??? Shine? thats awesome!!!" So it just kind of stuck. but you have find something inside yourself. Are you a Kandy Kid or a HardKore Chick. It makes a difference. Some of my crews names here in the northeast. KandyKidz: Twink,Munkee,Pika,Punky,Piksie,LiteBrite,Smilee and me Shine! HardKore Headz: Winta,Tex,Caspa Jungle Bunnies: Brosco,Tarzan & Jane!

To the anti-kandie kids you said it yourself..."Raves were created for PEOPLE TO JOIN TOGETHER, to apreciate great music, dance and BE HAPPY....." Raves are for all kinds of people weather they're kandie kids or not. Kandie kids are people too...were not juss "lil kiddies runnin around tryin to be cute" there's more to it then that. it's all about the PLUR...as for a nick name... ive been given some names by people who have been raving for a while. i agree it has to fit ur personality...or something that's symbolic, like my friend got hers.. ELMO because at her very first rave she was wearing an elmo backpack...some guy gave me smiley because i was always smiling, i also got rainbow from a friend because at my first rave i was wearing rainbow brite...someone also gave me caramel..because i fit the song caramel by city high, b/c i'm 5'5 with brown eyes and people tell me i have a great smile....good luck...PLUR

the reason people are saying all this shit about you kids is because of many reasons inherently to do with what raves have become.

sure you guys get together, munch some e and dance to some music, but how many of you actually talk to your friends that you meet at raves about thing that really matter to you and your life.

A good time is a good time, but I don't think that people should have to go to extremes to be outgoing and happy, the image is prevaling throught many raves of cheesy glow sticks and fluro, it has now just become another fashion, another brand name. This turns a lot of people who have been going out to raves for a long time off the scene, where they once felt comftorble doing what ever they wanted to and being who they were as indiviuals and as a culture.

But the culture turns to fashion and becomes exploited.

What is the result?

i think that you're putting too much thought into the whole rave thing...you don't need a name, you don't need any particular clothes, etc (though i'm not saying it's bad to have those things, you just don't need them). all you need is energy and an appreciation for people and music. enjoy yourself...

First of all, those guys a little ways up on the answers give me the heeby jeebies. I sure hope I don't run into that Johnny Fuck Me guy at a rave, because that would bum me out. I figure the wrong thing to do is go around saying what a rave should be and what it shouldn't be. There's all kinds and they're all like they should be. Just find the kind you like and hang out there. About the names, I've been raving for a couple years now, and (yes, I admit it) I came up with me own name. Sorry, everybody, I didn't know any better! But now I've decided to let it slide and wait around for someone else to give me one. Never stop learning! One more thing. I'm writing a book, and I need a bunch of rave name so I pulled a bunch of here. I hope nobody minds. You're all gonna be famous!!!

I also think that a name should be symbolic of who you are and why you got your name. My friend Zebra Zach was all mad because I got a nickname at my first party and he still didnt have one after partying for a while. (mine is gone girl) Then we were like wait! You always wear black and white striped things so you should be Zebra Zach! Now hw has a zebra visor(complete with ears) a zebra trench coat, pants, and the arm warmers to match. Its all who you are and whats inside and the nickname fairy will eventualy make its way to you. you just have to be patient. It will come to you at the oddest time you can think. Weather your sitting in a GIANT e-puddle like my friend puddlez, or make cute squeaking noises like my friend Squeakerz.

Hey Rainbow Children. I strongly agree with whomever said that your name should be GIVEN to you, especially at your first rave, or when you're still new to the scene. Everybody's special and has some kind of cute, weird, or unusual characterist (especially weirdo kandy kids that have enough personality to frighten children) so don't worry too much about your "rave name." I tend to meow when I get nervous or excited or can't think of anything to say and I'm also cute, curious, obnoxious, manipulative, and controlling like Dinah the cat in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland so a friend named me Dinah when we were partying at a favorite venue. To be honest, the name you recieve isn't that important unless it's super origional and you can represent that name in everyday life. I know I guy named Tigger- flower and he's always wearing Tiger-striped overals and a black hat with a flower in it. Another example is my very good friend Sean (aka Gumby) who always goes to parties painted from head-to-toe in green and wear's a Gumby t-shirt and green junglist pants. I could go on with examples like that forever...Don't get too preoccupied with the glam associated with kandy kids, please remember that we're still all here for the music and the unity. Well, later kiddies. Happy Raving! P.L.U.R.R.

There's a reason why most ravers retire about 24-25 yrs old. It's because of all the stupid "cand-e" ravers. YOU JUST DON'T GET IT!!! RAVES ARE NOT ABOUT PLUR OR ANY OTHER STUPID FLUFFY REASON!!!! THAT'S NOT HOW IT ALL STARTED!!!!!! The acid house scene 15 years ago was about a musical transition to a new style. Yes, the drugs propelled the scene to where it is today and no, I don't have any philosophical problems with that. IT STARTED WHEN MONEYHUNGRY ASSHOLES WANTED TO MAKE AS MUCH $$$ AS THEY COULD, SO THEY STARTED LETTING KIDS GO TO RAVES!!! 10 years ago, you couldn't hold a legal party with anybody under 18. In fact, when I started going, most parties were 21 and over and this is in S.F., one of the pioneers of the movement. The problems started when immature little kids (NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY, YOU ARE NOT MATURE AT 16!!)infected the parties and started taking and even selling drugs. I knew it was time to stop going to parties when I would walk in a party and (I'm not shitting you), groups of 14 year olds or younger would try and sell you E!

So that's it. I've been hearing people come up with all kinds of different reasons why "it's not like it used to be." This movement was meant for young people, not children. kids + drugs = death of the raves. If you don't believe me, just ask any promoter who through parties 10-15 years ago. The cops ALWAYS left us alone. Why? Because most of the people were adults and could HANDLE THEIR SHIT, if you know what I mean. But now we got 13 year olds OD'ing on E in class. You want to keep the rave scene going, get rid of the kids. I'm not trying to be mean, but this scene is too much for kids to handle at such young ages. And to all the people who preach about not having to take drugs at parties to have a good time, FUCK YOU! Just about every single person, dj, promoter, whatever..whose helped this scene grow, knows it wouldn't be as big as it is now if it wasn't for the drugs.

Hey, Well my name (Sparkle Spakle) was given to me by my friend Nikki. Mainly because i like glitter and my favourite brand is called, well "Sparkle Spakle". It just kinda stuck. I personally think that there are way too many kandy kids called "Kand-E girl" and "Pixie" and stuff like that. Try and be original. How about Lush Bands? I like that name, it was going to me my own, untill I got given one. Good luck and spread the P*L*U*R*

But sometimes your a stupid fag that never leaves the house and sits on the computer trying to be cool and think of "raver names" why because your a stupid butt. Raves are fun and enjoyable i'm going once again for my birthday in milwalki so maybe you'll be there trying to get a rave name oh wait you wont you'll be sitting at home on your lazy ass trying to think of a cool name to impress your 13 yr old girlfriend lady people in your life that you go to the bowling alley to impress with your maturity but in fact 20 yr olds should not mack on 13 yr olds why because its gross and they are unclean and they are not shaved you just think they are but they are not they are really just young and havn't grown there yet. I'm sorry you have to learn this from me I love you just like I love all people but in fact i'm lying I hate you and everyone else because i'm anti-social oh theres a raver name for you anti-social homosexual man at the computer that macks on 12 yr olds congrads your a raver man yahooooooo!

Blah! just a bunch of Blah!.. Nick name ay? whatever your friends give ya.... hey... and for all you people here is something you must know... Raves where came from the 70's which is disco if you tarts! didnt know that!!! Know your history! basically that is where it all started... and if Kandie Kids where created maybe because its time to make a change of difference...... Life is a TREND!!!... Deal w/ it! Deni! for all i care but soon you'll see...

Kandie kids are updated hippies... only that they do use electricity and dont do anarchy... thats it...

Ravers are updated Go Go disco people...

I know there is more back history of the whole rave... Know The History... Know your roots!

Oh as for the Kandie Kids being fags... nuh uh the ones that i know.. They are nice but can kick your ass when it comes to deffending one self!

My friends say im a kandie kid... now they say im some Rainbow Punk... and i say blah! Im just me!!! but i am tuff... Ive gone this far... And people are affraid of me when i dont do nothing... maybe i always look serious...

Beware of my Radiant!!! ok im just talkin out of me quiff


Later DAyz...

kidz. i use the alias (rave name) as a way to know how people know me. if they know me from parties then they'll call me by my alias because they don't know anything else. But i also thinks it helps with security b.c who knows who you'll run into at a partie. and the alias is that complex, don't worry about it ROAM ~drew~

Come on peoples (btw this goes out to all the people who have posted a reply to this string with negative view about ravers). Some of you say you once were, and now your not anymore (cause you've 'grown up' aparently), and others blatantly accuse ravers of being some lower form of being because they chose to do something which does not represent their positive behavior, or some bullshit like that. I mean what is that all about? definitely not PLUR. in any case, what makes it such a tragedy that you have to come on here and defend your ignorant right-wing attitude on a fairly liberal post? does it make you guys feel better to post a a message that is obviously infuliating your damaged self-esteem upon people who enjoy their lifes at the moment? some of you even admit to having been a raver yourself for a while. so tell me how much you've gorn up now, only to slander someone else's beliefs. much good quitting drugs did you, huh? if i were you i would reconsider leaving your habbits, considering you've become an ass.

I used to do a bunch of this stuff too. And that was a long time ago too. But believe me, i'm not gonna crucify someone else for doing something that once helped me out a lot. It made me the person I am today, 6 years later. I feel fine, great in fact. So what exactly is your problem? Everything changes over time guys, and no matter where revaes came from, it wont ever be like it once was (thats what the hippies used to always say.. and still do), so give it up. times are changing, raves are different, many people know where it came from (the curious ones), and many don't. FUCK IT. who gives a shit really. live and let live-- and shoot everybody else. nah.. im just kidding.

really just lighten up. i really wrote this message in hopes of reaching someone who is thinking of posting a message about ravers here, that is in some way derogatory. i just want you guys to know that god didn't put you on a damned pedastool, so why are you guys acting all high and mighty. if you're gonna write something negative, why don't you try to actually convince someone that your views are better, instead of accusing and degrading others... you are not 8 anymore (i hope), so you should know how to be a grown up now... shouldn't you?

MMMM. Ecstasy. Nice. Taking hits of an undisclosed chemical made up in someone's bathtub, cut with crude resources, or one better, cut with other drugs! Great! All I am saying is think before you do that $hit. Your passing out for a reason! Do some homework on the drug, you may trust who you got it from, but where did they get it from...where did that person get it from, who made it? See? That shit isnt safe, and if I were there I would happily accomodate by fitting you in some cast-iron bracelets and "roll" you to detox, then prison...since I'd be doing my job, which is quite easy at a rave, after all, use/possession are just misdemeanors, but distribution is a felony. That always looks good on a background check for a job someday...yeah, u might want to get one of those, one that pays more than minimum wage. Have fun, just be smart kidz. You're only given one brain. Use it to your advantage.

rave - a dance party that lasts all night and electronically synthesized music is played raver - a participant in a rave dancing party

Therefore a) you do not need a name and b) only go if you are energetic and can last that long.

I don't see what the big deal is about someone wanting a rave name. It's a novelty thing for a lot of us. I went to my first party completely unknowing of what I was about to expierence. Before that I'd been slightly stuck up and judgemental, etc. After that, I realized that I'd found a place I could go and be myself... Or, if I didn't feel like being myself, I could be someone else. So, I started going to parties all kandied out and such... And I went by the name SunMaide, given to me by my then, now ex- veteran raver boyfriend). That lasted all of one party, I think. After that I continued wearing bracelets, etc. just on a smaller scale, and one of them spelled out my actual name, abbie, in beads and I found that to be much more suiting. And it served a good purpose, as parties are pretty loud and so people always thought I was saying my name was Maggie or Aggie and such... So I could tell them my name then point to my bracelet and let them read it.

As for now... I've not been to a party in a few years, but my last couple were definitely more about the music and dancing instead of spreading my happy cheer. It didn't mean I wasn't happy and whatnot... I just chose to show it in a different way. Dancing is an excellent way of showing appreciation to the djs at parties.

Anyway, I'm just saying that I think in the beginning, for many of us, the experience is completely overwhelming. It's like finding yourself all over again. And you grow out of it. I've never met a kandie kid that had been in the scene more than a year. Just deal with them. And like someone above me said, there are generally several different areas at parties and most of the time kandie kids are in the trance rooms. Avoid them unless you like trance. And in that case, be glad that there are other people who support the same style of music that you do. Isn't that what parties are about? Respect and Unity and whatnot?

Well, I'm a Kandi Kid but I do see what a lot of people are saying.. You really don't need a nickname to fit in at a rave. Just listen to the music, dance, and socialize.. That's why it was started in the first place.

And I'm sick of all the hating on Kandi Kids. Just because we have a lot of love to give and we like to get away from reality by acting like kids doesn't mean that we're not people with feelings.

And just because I go to raves and I'm a Kandi Kid DOES NOT mean I do E.

Because I've never done it, thank you very much.


(By the way, I DO have a nickname. It's Dimples, so HAH!)

I agree with the many people on here who are talking about the name being symbolic to you. Thats how I got mine, from a friend to took me to my second rave. I got the nickname "Tinkz" because *appearance wise* I have little fairy wings tattood onto each one of my shoulders, and I always carry around a little pouch of blue glitter. But dance wise my friend cliff said I looked like a little fairy flying through mid air, dancing nice and smoothly like it comes naturally, and sometimes like I'm out of this world. Also because I'm real short and tiny compared to him :P And as for the whole Kand*e kids thing, its amazing why people wonder WHY the rave scene is falling apart!!! PLUR is an excellent concept to think, live, and dream by. I'm a Kand*e kid, and so are a lot of my other raver friends. We go out, we have fun, and we live by plur. You think the rave scene is falling apart because of them *us*, when look at some of YOU! You argue and fight and diss all of the people that are Kand*e kids, blaming them for the downfall. Do you think that helps the scene? Newcomers are gonna be scared out of their mind soon because of how people are starting to treat fellow ravers and Kand*e kids NOW! They are gonna try and be what all of you who claim to be "real" ravers and diss all of the kand*e kids hate, and not themselves! Being a raver is just being yourself, and like I said, with the way all of you are acting nowadays, newcomers are never gonna see that, and they're gonna push themselves over the limit to be something they ARENT!! How much of PLUR do you see in THAT?? And as for the newly revised PLURR (peace, love, respect, *responsibility*), I think that too is great. If these kids want to be true ravers, I think plurr is a great thing to learn by. I know I dont like it when other Kand*e kids show up at these raves all hyped up on e swinging around pouring glitter everywhere and being just flat out DISrespectful, jumping around and picking fights, getting drunk and acting stupid. Because that is what gives us a bad name. But not all of us are like that. I know I go there for the music, the vibes, the feeling and the unity of the people. Not for the drugs and to use it as a place to act stupid and be there just so I can call myself a "raver". NOpe, not in the very least. Sure e is great every once in a while, it enhances my senses and makes the whole night a lot more enjoyable, but just being there alone, sober, by itself, is the best thing in the world for me. No drug in the world can compare to that. I think the crap with all of these people having probs with the Kand*e kids and stuff is one of the main reasons for so much argument and collapsing of the raver scene now. Lighten up, not all of us are stupid like some of the kand*e kids that are out there nowadays. Accept us for who we are, because there are too many of us out there now for you to just eliminate from the scene. PLUR Live it, learn it, be it.

Hey what's up all you crazies! From a small town dj located in the midwest's point of view I think Kandy Kids are great! I've been going to rave parties since the late 90's and I've seen things evolve very quickly as far as the diversity of the party goers at least in the Chicago area. I mainly spin house as aposed to breaks, jungle and dnb, but I'll drop some techy ISH just to mix things up a bit... each to your own right! Anyway, I've never been much of a raver/dancer in terms of glowsticks and bright baggy pants, but I've always loved the scene. I'm not a well known dj by any means but I've played a couple big party's with maybe 300-500 people but I would've never made it there if it wasn't for another dj who heard my first live performance and gave me my name. Gotta give love to my boy Jeremy Anderson, DJ Buddha, The Tripp Brothers and all the local Quad City dj's who've supported me over the years. All the haters who bash someone's style becuase they act or look different at a party have no reason or purpose for being there. It's evident that the rave scene has evolved from the catacombs of the disco era back in the 70's. Some people don't realize that in the begining this music was first played in Gay clubs in Chicago and New York, so there's no reason to get all distraught with Kandy Kids because they're not like you. If it wasn't for the diverse crowds of people who flock to see live dj's doing there thing the whole scene would die and the dj's who people love would be out of a job because ass holes who have no respect and can't see the big picture around them. So I say to all you haters with no respect for your fellow party goers/Kandy Kids - Can you rel8!!

RESPECT - d.Jay... aka dante'
