Electronic music as one of the most popular music genres in contemporary time has a great role in forming youth identity, social processes and contemporary ritals, similar to hippie movement in the sixties and rise of rock music. Similar social atmosphere occured when both music genres rose, just like the reactions as revolt against dominant culture and politcs by joinig the ecstatic dance of love and solidarity, at electronic partys. Nevertheless, social setup today is much more different then in the 60s regarding hyperproduction and hyperconsumption, dividing people mainly by financial status, but also by race, national and gender/sex. Globalisation and capitalism had great impact on popularisation of electronic music, but it had also fastened the proces of decadency and depleting of the core: love, peace and unity. Catchword is still in use but mainly for commercialising. Narcotics have great part in electronic scene, but their consumption is just one marginalized activity and emphasizing that dimension as social and health threat neglects dimension of meaning that type of practices which are, at the same time, process of identification, construction of group identity and specific lifestyle. Dance is, thus, the most important element in rave culture which allows us to express our selfhood, come in touch with ourselves and helps establish social connections and specific structures in communities we live in.
