BRINGING THE OLD SKOOL L&L VIBE INTO THE FUTURE!
Founded 4/28/95' - Created for: LOVE~ MUSIC~N THE PEOPLE!
"The Scene" as it was lovingly referred to in the early 90's,
has come back around again full circle, and is currently bigger than ever. However, the once loving family of people gathering together in unity has fractioned off into many different groups. Promoters, DJ's, social scenes, and musical styles. Cliquish groups of people snub those around them. Promoter interest solely in attracting more business, and many of the reasons we fell in love with our Scene have been lost.
Many of us believe that this movement is a meaningful one, full of love and good people. We have the potential to come together from all walks of life, (regardless of race, creed, color, religion or sexuality) and unite in mind, body and soul.
It has been said, countless times by many, that it will and can never be the same. Which is true, but we can make it better, and it is up to us to make it happen!
Here are some suggestions from your friends:
Support a wide variety of dj's and parties - Know your promoters and those who stand behind them.
Educate yourself and others about actions that can cause harm and the precautions necessary to protect yourselves from them.
Question the support of negative people, DJ's and promoters.
Take good care of yourself and your loved ones.
Make at least one new friend at every party.
Love & remember, forgive & forget.
Smile often and go out of your way to accept others.
Share your love, thoughts and emotions.
Always remember that you are the power of example to everyone around you, especially the next generation.
Lead by example!
