[quote="[CDS] topher"][quote="Oliver Nickels"]Calling all soundsystems!
I want to hear some mindblowing music this year! Whos got it!
Minimal, Techno, Acid, forward-thinking Electro music beyond a buzzy bassline!
Burningman is not a rave or nightclub, even though you may find both there.[/quote]
For me burningman is anything my heart desires. Sometimes that includes a rave/club, whatever the moment calls for. It shall always be much much more than any of that of course. A community for radical self-reliance without really dope techno (or good music in general) would be sadly lacking, imho. I'm all for mindblowing ground shaking techno ala Speedy J, Surgeon, Ben Sims, Steve Rachmad, Robert Hood, UR, Ortin Cam, etc.
All Oliver is saying is he wants REAL techno on the playa...why is that a reason to scoff at him and lecture him about bm not being a rave?
(there's nothing wrong with raves anyway, imo, but that's a another issue)
I thought it's not cool to mess with other people's burn.
