While pop is still dominating the charts, other genres, which were previously churning under the water, are now breaking through the surface - slowly introduced into the masses of mainstream listeners. One such example is 'deep house', a branch of house music and a sister of EDM, progressive house, and its other variations. Deep house has a sound influenced by jazz music mixed with Chicago house and techno sounds of Detroit. House music has its veterans such as Duke Dumont and EDM royalties such as Calvin Harris.

I’m here to briefly explore the origins of rave culture, the music, dancing, and even attire. The subculture is a bit odd, and very different from a typical night out. The early rave scene subculture started in the late 80’s in Chicago. Young party-goers attended events called “Acid House Music Parties”.…

I wasn’t that great, we were both pretty tired and only really talked about music. Until, we saw the traffic on the other side of the highway. That’s all we talked about an hour, there was so much traffic I’ve never seen anything like it. For at least fives miles, people were stopped out of their cars talking to each other on the highway. There…

    the big move from New York to Texas. The house we lived in was my childhood home and my husband and I shared it for fifteen years together. This was not going to be an easy task. Our first hurdle was preparing for this huge adventure. Secondly, we needed to drive both cars down. That meant that we would not have the other person to take over driving when our eyelids became as heavy as weights over our eyes. Finally, we would need to settle into this strange new world. My husband’s family…
