For starters Ill explain the warp drive of this ship: PLUR. PLUR of course is an acronym standing for Peace, Love, Unity, Respect. It is the motto for Ravers worldwide, and is the essence of why this culture is so popular.
The Peace portion represents the harmless nature of the community. Whilst enjoying the festivities, it is mutually understood that no raver shall harm another in any way shape or form. Disputes or disagreements will be settled in a civilized and peaceful manner. Above all, none shall enter a rave with harmful, evil or unjust intentions.
L for Love. Love represents the unique nature of all. Offer nothing but friendship, and greet those whom you know or do not know with the same love. Love for the music, the sounds, the experience. While in a rave, participants are among friends who love the event and its people. This love is to be shared and expressed. The love aspect of a raver’s heart is what allows for connections and friendships to form, whether it is locally or globally. Love everyone, but above all this philosophy demands a love for one’s self. For if a raver does not love one’s self, how can she/he ever love another?
Unity. So long as the event is operational, all will rave as one. This unique culture allows individuals to set aside their differences and participate together in an experience that is unmatched. Everyone has gathered for a moment. A place in space and time. A moment that will be cherished as a memory. A memory formed by a unified group of individuals who have gathered to loathe in ecstasy (literal and non-literal). This unification is the driving force behind the philosophy of PLUR.
Finally there is respect. Respect admits that everyone comes from different places and different cultures. Ravers may even speak different languages. But that has no meaning while a rave is in session. No single element of a human being is greater or lesser than that of another. Everyone is one in the same during the events. Such differences are to be left in the eyes of the weak. Music lovers from around the globe arrive at raves with similar intentions and interests. But amongst these intentions/interests is always respect.One must have respect for others and one’s self. As well as giving respect to the artists who are famous and those who are lesser known. One must respect the event, its staff and nature. Lastly, there must be respect to the cree by which everyone subconsciously testifies to: PLUR.
So why is this philosophy so popular?
For the first time, musical events have occurred where there are virtually no fights. This lack of violence is appealing to many. And who can blame them?! A world without violence is a better one. Secondly, this philosophy is designed to include everyone. The modern world often puts too much emphasis on racial, sexual, or physical elements. PLUR allows for new friendships (and furthermore relationships) to form naturally, through common interest.
And who can forget the quality of these events? Outstanding. Spectacular light shows, endless crowds, heart-pounding sounds. The most fun many generations will have for years to come.
This rising culture is one of amazing people and fortified ideals.
Let it be known that these ideals have existed for quite some time now. What is truly exciting, is that this set of ideals seems to get better with age.
Rave on my friends.

GARAGE MODEL SEARCH 2013
Daddy Cool - Boney M
Recently, I have been eagerly searching for new interviewees . While Las Vegas man Fryonic is not new, his sound has indefinitely shifted in many ways. Fryonic is now a duo, with new member “Ray” completing the pair. Long-time friend and musical feedback generator of Mike Francis, Ray adds a hip-hop element to the group with his impressively improvised lines. That in combination with the classic DNB sound of Mike Francis has given Fryonic a whole new facelift.This Q&A definitely had me laughing.
Q: What’s different about Fryonic now? Do you think this will give you more of an edge in an ever-changing music community?
I do my own thing every time, so I think that alone gives me an edge. Plus, I love almost all genres of music, and respect it all equally,
so why not use them all and add in some of my own style while I’m at it, right? What I’m doing differently is incorporating vocalists.
I do a lot of work with Ray (my new partner) (Shattered Perception is mostly his vocals) and some female singers.
I’ll be incorporating a new vocalist, Caitlyn Young in an upcoming song soon. Also, I work on a lot of tracks with fellow producers,
and I’d be interested in doing one with you if you’d like. Yes, I did just ask for a collab on an interview haha.
Q: What would you consider to be “your” genre(s)? Does the newly formulated duo’s sound require a new genre?
Here’s an answer to that from Ray. “I would consider ourselves to be the pioneers of ‘Grimstep’,
and hopefully people will catch on to it and like it for what it is. I would say that Grimstep is our new genre,
and we’re refining it with every new song we make.”
Q: How do you now shift your production style to accommodate a duo? Is there even a change in the process?
No change at all. I start a track with one goal only, “make them feel it.” Then I give the song to Ray (like I always have,
even before we were a duo) so I could get his opinion. Then I make a few changes. Let it sit for a bit, start something new,
then come back to it and revamp the crap out of it. Then I’ll add his vocal take on it, perhaps do a bit more shaping,
and it’s good to go after I master it. The only thing that’s changed is that Ray is now a part of Fryonic ha.
Q: Cats or Dogs?
I’m a cat dude. Ask Ray about his cat Charlie. Thing is a monster.
Q: Last interview you spoke of upcoming collaborations (noted in Polar Symbiosis Feat. Sierra Doehrmann). What is the next step for you now that 6 months have passed?
We need publicity. Like, need it. So the goal is to market ourselves as much as possible while still refining our sound. We are very grateful for this interview.
Since a little more of “us” is defined with every track we produce, we just have to keep trying to get noticed while we push out more sounds.
Q: Your latest track “Shattered Perception” has an intro with many neat sounds that layer well together. Can you tell me and the readers a bit about how it was created?
I wanted to give an Arabian flare to a more organic/electric hybrid sound with some good hiphop vocals layered on top.
Ray and I had some lyrics that were sitting around for a long time so we decided to use them, and after a good dozen re-recordings,
we found out that we had two completely different first verses. So we said ‘screw it’ and just winged it. That’s something we do every time now.
Works for us, right? I basically played my guitar for a week making all of the melodies I wanted and programmed them into FL.
That, plus some other procedures built the main bit of the track. The drum and bass bits are nothing new development wise, however.
I did what I usually do for that. Just had to keep in mind that wherever the drum and bass section takes me, it’ll have to transition smoothly.
Afterwards, Ray laid down his improvised vocals, I put them in, and I rapped for the chorus. It was definitely one of those ultra-inspired songs for both of us.
It came out of us so easily. Sometimes you have to fight to get something to work. Not this one. I might do a remix of it sometime. We do have a new song,
“The Only Martyr” following a similar, but more orchestral vein, coming out soon!
Q: What is one venue (world-renowned or not) that you would love to play at?
I want to be a headliner for EDC. I’d love to play in my hometown right on the speedway where I used to watch all of the NASCAR races as a young boy.
Driving is a huge influence in our music. Ray says Lady Gaga’s house. More specifically her bedroom. He’s an odd one.
Q: What would you say is your most popular track to date?
Probably still “When Kicking Ass Isn’t Enough”. I have no idea how, but it received a lot of attention. I want that to happen again. X100000 haha.
Q: Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera?
I say neither. Ray’s insisting Lady Gaga, regardless of whether or not you said her name.
