I was on my way to Dragonfly when I heard there was a desert rave tonight. That's what I call an unavoidable u-turn! It took us some time to find it but we were determined and we braved the rocks and washes to fight our way to the party, somewhere south of Tonto's National Park.

I must say at first I was a bit disappointed to find out the music was mostly D&B and Jungle and we saw a lot of cars leaving on the way in which wasn't a good sign. But we decided to stay and give it a chance. I'm really glad we did because it turned out that this party had an awesome vibe. I noticed a very sober crowd, at least a lot more sober than some of the Nile parties. Yet, there was no parental supervision, no arresting cops and no government propaganda. So, how come all these kids weren't fucked up. Well, maybe it's because they do have some intelligence of their own. Maybe they can think and learn for themselves. Maybe instead of getting tossed in jail with hardened criminals, these kids had a chance to learn from each other and turn the meaning of peer pressure around. In this party, peer pressure meant "don't get fucked up! Enjoy the music instead" And they did. They danced all night under millions of stars and truly enjoyed each others company, responsible and free.

The vibe was so good that I even began to enjoy the Jungle and Drum and Base music pumping out from the top of the big red truck. There were a lot of great DJs and MCs tonight but the one who stood out the most was a new comer by the name of MC LUDAKRES (AKA Chris). In addition to his dead-on, funnier than shit imitation of Cartman from South Park, he can really roll his tongue and spit out a million words a minute. It was like an ultra sensory assault of unending verses and poems, strung together with righteous overtones and solid convictions. Although I felt his anti drug verses were a bit preachy and off putting, he did deliver the main message superbly and with an abundance of confidence. Not to mention he's only 15. He is indeed VERY talented and will most likely be successful in whatever path he chooses. The world awaits you Chris - show 'em what you got!

We stayed until sun up and headed back to town with a pleasant sense of exhaustion and a bundle of lasting memories. It's extremely difficult not to have a good time at a desert rave. Thank you E.W.O.K.S. for a wonderful experience. See you all next time.
