Welcome to our new column, Ask a Teen Raver! Kerah Rose is a 19-year-old college student from Riverside who plays basketball and plans to study marine biology.

In her spare time she's an EDM aficionado who hits raves like nobody's business, often with her friend Ciara and clad in little more than electrical tape.

In this new column, which will run occasionally, Kerah will discuss the scene, the music, her outfits, and anything else on her mind. Please send questions to teenraver@laweekly.com.

Dear Teen Raver: West Coast Sound recently wrote about a DJ who got death threats for playing dubstep. Why do dubheads hate trance and tranceheads hate dubstep? -Ashley Naomi

Dear Ashley: I listened to DJ Fei-Fei's set from Beyond Wonderland, and this whole controversy is really stupid to me. Her set was fucking amazing! I'm upset I missed it, especially the part when she dropped some dirty ass dubstep and I wasn't there to witness it live.

I don't understand why trance fans were being so rude. I thought we were all suppose to be PLUR. [Editor's note: This means "Peace Love Unity Respect." Ravers say it a lot. We didn't know either.]

Maybe you don't like every kind of music, but that doesn't give you the right to disrespect others. We can all have our own opinions, but why be hurtful toward an artist?

But back to tranceheads hating dubheads. Actually, I don't think that's all the way true. I know a lot of die hard trance fans that don't hate on dubstep or talk shit about it.

Sure, they might not like dubstep and wouldn't listen to it, but they don't bring dubstep fans down. Same goes for the dubheads.

Personally I'm a big dubstep fan. I call myself a bass bunny because I truly love all types of dubstep, and I never hate on any other kinds of EDM. I think anyone who loves EDM as much as I do should stay PLUR.

Dear Teen Raver: Doesn't the electrical tape fall off your boobs once you start dancing? How do you keep it on there? -Concerned Citizen
