    Hi Deborah

    Thx for this article.
    I have a nagging question about “House Music”. I know that it is not related to this article, but the phenomenon of house music is very worrying. The music has all the same type of beats and rhythm. Young people are also addicted to the music as they are to tech toys (Blackberry).
    Do you or any of the community have anything on this type of music?
    Could you please reply soonest or find someone that has a ministry exposing this music in SA.
    God bless you

    I know that drugs plays a big part in the rave and house music scene. If it’s not drugs then I do know that DJ’s mix music that works on a persons heart rate. They know how to lower the heart rate and bring it up through different types of dance music putting the person into a type of trance like state. Also of course the music needs to be good music otherwise people wont be interested in listening to it in the first place. Then there are the flashing lights and lazers that help put the person into a type of trance like state as well. I know people also get addicted to dancing and partying – the dancing becomes a type of drug. This type of music has been around for donkeys of years, it’s nothing new.
