Get your dose of hard dance music anywhere with net
Looking for some party tunes to liven up the place? Electronic dance music is not exclusive to raves, and sometimes getting a dose of it outside of the club does you good, making you feel energised and upbeat. My new favourite place to get a fix of this is Reverse the Bass (RTB), an online harder styles radio station born in 2011.

With "a pure love and passion for hard dance music and the scene around it" RTB is a promising platform to get the energetic vibes flowing. While it is orchestrated from Newcastle and Sydney, the great thing is the music is available to you anywhere you have an internet connection. No need to worry about that radio signal cracking up just when the beat's about to drop.
This free platform not only allows you to listen to a range of harder style music - hard trance, hardcore, uk hardcore, etc - but it brings together the community of those with an interest in this area. A great feature is the live chat system through which online listeners can network.

Featured on the station are live sets by DJ's who are know throughout the scene in Australia. Many of these people play at events that have become affiliated with RTB. Such supported events, in which you can catch live experiences of this music, include Rocket Science at The Imperial Hotel in Erskineville. Details and links can found on RTB.
My personal favourite time to tune in to RTB is Wednesday afternoons and evenings. With the genre being UK hardcore, a lot of euphoric songs that you can sing along to are played - all of which have the added bonus of hard bass that gets even more pumped. Different genres tend to get the focus at set times - for example hard trance can be caught on Friday evenings for the time being. There is often a good mix of hard dance music in general though. I've never been disappointed with the sets I've tuned into.
Hook your laptop up to a sound system to really feel the bass. I love doing this when no body is home so I can crank it up and enjoy a private crazy dance session. Also love it when people are home and I'm permitted to turn up the volume - doing that right now to warm up for a wonderful Saturday night.
