Pure Rave, a collective based in Detroit, Michigan, is an ongoing experiment in "chance dance". Using various prepared turntables, "damaged" records, the occasional drum machine, rudimentary CDDJ loops, and 133.33 bpm loops. The effect is an indeterminate arrangement of patterns and rhythmic sonic collage. Real-time experimentation with the goal of hitting your pleasure center for whatever your brain thinks is interesting.

Set amidst the context of contemporary Detroit electronic music, the group has no trouble finding endless bins of trashed Midwestern dance records and no problem hosing them off in the front yard of their apartment building. Cheap or free turntables of questionable condition are also bountiful in this town.

"Delightfully blown out for the cassette medium. Yes, it's now intentional. No clue when this was recorded or what records were used (we're getting better about this but early days was pretty much grab any fucked up record you could find and throw it across the room when you're done with it). Particularly love the rudimentary bass drops on the horrible dusty old mixer we used here to mimic traditional club DJs, it's definitely either a "fuck you" to vapid EDM-esque DJs or an homage to Jeff Mills - you decide. Probably recorded around 2018."
