- club drug deals with with location (a club) and the fact that quite a few clubber's use drugs to enhance their experience. It also refers to the clubbers lifestyle. The atmosphere itself is a drug in which it is hard to get out because they've found it so accommodating for their needs. Sometimes massive depression tended to sweep over those involved in the Club scene after it died.
- gregarious party animals refer to what people stereotype clubbers and ravers when hearing about them on the news. The gatherings are known to show up in news reports all over the world.
- underground comfort (or nrg) a lot of these parties started out underground in factories and abaonded stores. The people who usually attend these parties refer the other ravers as family because there could be one or two parties every weekend. NRG is slang for energy, which people feel when listening/dancing to the music.
- acid house summers were what the first rave parties were called in the 1980's. There would be between 4,000 to 25,000 people that arrived to these acid house summers.
- one step beyond was a massive 'fantazia' that was an open-air all-nighter that attracted close to 30,000 people.
- section 65 deals with the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 that allows any uniformed constable who believes a person is on their way to a rave within a five-mile radius to stop them and direct them away from the area; non compliant citizens may be subject to a maximum fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard scale (£1 000).
- PLUR is an acronym for peace, love, unity, and respect. Candy kids would wear massive amounts of colorful beads around their necks and wrists with plur written all over them.
- audio adrenaline combines the music (audio) and the feeling you get while moving to the beat when kids danced all night long.
- crossover groves references the grooves on a record that supply the sound. The crossover is on the mixer (sits in between the turntables) that allows for dual records being played at once, (or just the left/right) to be played one at a time for a continuous play.
- family after dark alludes to the tight friendship and care of the clubbers as a group. You basically had a couple of families, one in the day (parents/siblings) and your night family (all meet up at night to party).
- jacked kids Jack(ing/ed)(ling0) Getting down to some music. Kids who danced their hearts out were known to jack their ass off. They loved the music the most and danced the hardest.
- underground dirty dance most parties were kept on the down low (underground) from most outsiders. As the music evolved, it became more dirty (darker and harder). It also references the warehouses they danced at were very dirty and abandoned.
So after much deliberation and thought, I've come up with a couple icon set names that reference my electronic music theme. The titles I have listed come from the lingo and different government restrictions trying to stop electronic music parties (raves/clubs/underground festivals and so on).
