If you want to know how to make kandi, then you should visit actual rave websites and ask them. There are other websites out there, such as PLUR LIFE
that have a website especially dedicated to rave culture. Be aware if you want to proceed to this forum. You will find hardcore ravers here. The people of the Plur Life forum are really friendly, but friendly in a different
way. If you think you are good at "talking trash for the LuLz," then this is the place for you if you want to know more about the rave.
I warn you though, this website has very offensive material, which is however, lightly intended. Which means they might call you offensive names but in a tough love kind of way.
Just know that the rave scene at Fanime is quite under developed (but I have high hopes of it getting better). The rave scene at Fanime is nothing close to the actual raves going on nowadays.
To be quite frank, the reason is because Fanime attendees are not on drugs, the girls are not whores, and the guys are not gangsters/douches trying to get laid.
It's sad to say but the general majority of the real rave scene is infested with people who are not there for the music, but for their own needs.
And I'm not trying to say the FAnime rave scene should be anything like the general majority ravers. The minority of people that go are the real music lovers who go with/without drugs but they just go for the music and they don't cause any trouble or grief, because they have respect for that DJ or the music.
The crooks really make the "rave scene" an unsafe environment. And I suggest that you guys stay away from becoming "too ravey" because it'll attract THOSE
kinds of people. Just focus on the music
I'm talking through my own experience of raves.
Watch the video that eHash posted; the interviewees in that video are the real music lovers that provide an underground sound that is so complex that it is nearly considered religious or worship material. you can't find these kinds of things in mainstream radio stations.
So what am I trying to say? I'm actually trying to say it's all about the music. Music first, then lights, kandi, fancy costumes, come second.
But for some people, it is about the sex, drugs, social fit, or other factors. And by making it too ravey, it will no doubt attract more crooks. It's not the ravers who are the crooks, but it's the crooks who are attracted the raver's ideals.
