I have just finished reading "Rave America, New School DanceScapes" and I must say that Mireille Silcott has done a great job regurgitating the same rave history lesson that is given in most "rave" books. Her ability to capture the essence of Rave is pretty good and her style of writing is also good. Yet, I felt as though I was rereading books by Simon Reynolds or Dan Sicko. 4 people found this helpful.
Rave America is the first book devoted to this massive phenomenon. Through hundreds of interviews with DJs, recording artists, producers, promoters, drug lords, club celebrities, and nightworld casualties, this book takes readers into the deepest recesses of the electronic dance culture, uncovering secrets and stories never before seen in print. For the last three years, the sale of Technics 1200 turntables (used by DJs in clubs) have outstripped those of electric guitars. Raves have gone from parties involving a few hundred people to commercially sponsored festivals drawing tens of thousands of fans. Rave America is the first book devoted to this massive phenomenon. well, I just have to say that Rave America was thought provoking, mature and intensely visual. Certainly a point of reference for a generation
