1997 verfasste Matthew Collin zusammen mit seinem Kollegen John Godfrey mit Altered State - Im Rausch der Sinne das Standardwerk über die damalige Dance-Kultur, ihre Ursprünge, ihre Einflüsse und ihre verschiedenen Gesichter. Heute liegt der zweite ´´Summer Of Love´´, als Ende der Achtziger Acid House die Welt eroberte, dreißig Jahre zurück, und pulsierende Beats und hedonistische Partys sind in der westlichen Welt längst Teil des Mainstream-Entertainments geworden. Grund genug für Collin, sich einmal genauer anzusehen, wie sich die Szene von einst gewandelt hat - und auf dem Globus nachzuspüren, ob sich die innovative Kraft der Beats andernorts vielleicht noch ihre einst so subversive Energie erhalten hat. Und so nimmt Collin die Leser mit in Dance-Metropolen wie Detroit oder Berlin, wo etwa die Techno-Idealisten im Berghain immer noch den alten Geist des Genres beschwören, während ´´Raving´´ anderswo längst zum Big Business geworden ist: In Las Vegas bestimmt die Höhe des Eintritts den Platz im Club, und in Shanghai werden die Tanzflächen immer kleiner, um den reichen Selbstdarstellern an den kleinen Tischchen mehr Platz fürs Posing zu bieten. Doch als Mittel zum Ausdruck eines individuellen Lebensgefühls ist Dance dennoch nicht passé: Das beweisen die jungen, innovativen Szenen in Südafrika oder die Techno-Outlaws in Frankreich. Collin ist durch die ganze Welt gereist und stellt die neuen Keimzellen frischer Ideen in China oder den Vereinigten Arabischen Emiraten den altvertrauten Dance-Hochburgen gegenüber. Seine Porträts der jeweiligen Szenen sind das Resultat akribischer Recherche vor Ort, und sie basieren auf Interviews mit aufstrebenden DJs und Promotern, detaillierten Beobachtungen und fundierten Schlussfolgerungen. ´´Das Buch sollte eine Reportage aus erster Hand bieten und beschreiben, wie es aussah, wie es sich anhörte und wie es sich anfühlte, dort zu sein´´, sagte er dem International DJ Magazine. Das ist Matthew Collin meisterlich gelungen. Er verschließt nicht die Augen vor Diskriminierung und Gentrifizierung, ohne sich aber auf die kulturpessimistische Einstellung zurückzuziehen, dass früher alles besser war. Rave On ist nicht nur eine Bestandsaufnahme aktueller Dance-Trends geworden, sondern eine kritische Liebeserklärung an die Beats, temporeich, bunt und ungeheuer informativ.

Electronic dance music was once the utopian frontier of pop culture. But three decades after the acid house ´summer of love´, it has gone from subculture to the global mainstream. Does it still have the same power to inspire? From the pleasure palaces of Ibiza and Las Vegas to ´new frontiers´ like Shanghai and Dubai, raving is now a multi-million-dollar business. But there are still hardcore believers upholding its DIY ethos - the techno idealists of Berlin and Detroit and the queer subcults of New York, the post-apartheid party people of South Africa and the outlaw techno travellers of France. In Rave On, Matthew Collin travels the world to experience these unique scenes first-hand, talk to the key players and hear the story of how dance culture went global - and find out if its maverick spirit can survive its own success.

(Excerpt from Unlawfully Claimed: The Omega Rescue: Book One) ´´W-what´s it l-l-like?” Spencer asked, his black eyes wide. ´´It´s great.” Thane smiled at the small Omega. ´´We need to find all of you your perfect match.” He grinned broadly at me. ´´I-I-I don´t think there´s an Alpha for me.” Spencer shook his head, a tenuous smile on his face. ´´I-I better keep l-l-looking for a job.” Spencer´s story begins...Max had begun trying to sell me off as breeding stock almost immediately after taking control and was willing to foist me off on anyone who even sniffed in my direction. To his ongoing irritation, as soon as I opened my mouth to speak, all interested parties had turned tail and run. One particularly unkind Alpha had paused in his flight long enough to compare conversing with me to a battery acid mange dip - and then went on to tell Max that he would prefer the dip. Unable to send me to the Omega auction - they wouldn´t accept faulty merchandise - Max had found an alternative that in his mind solved all of our problems. It got me off the pack´s teat and found me a home - of sorts. The fact that it meant me agreeing to go into service as a prostitute didn´t seem to bother him at all. That was what had brought him to our shanty that evening. If I couldn´t find a mate in the next week, I´d be shipped off to Howling Hank´s Whore House. Classy name, huh? Somehow Max must have gotten wind of our plan to thwart him because while Mom was at work the next day, he came to visit me. He wasn´t alone. ´´Spencer?” The stranger greeted me, holding his hand out. ´´I´m Jack.” I nodded and tried to make my split lip pull up into a smile, wondering if Max had found another Alpha for me to try to impress. I scented the air, but I didn´t smell Alpha. In fact, I didn´t smell anything. I shook his hand and jerked back at a sharp pain in my wrist. I didn´t even have time to question what had 1.
