New Rave

New Rave (sometimes labelled Nu Rave or Nue Rave), is a term applied to several types of music that go from fusing elements of new wave / disco / indie rock to techno / hip-house / breakbeat and electro. Although closer in style to the genre has connotations of being a ‘new’ version of ‘rave’, as well as being a corruption of the term ‘new wave’. The music publication NME is largely responsible for popularising the term throughout 2006 and 2007, despite itself claiming in mid-2008 reviews that “New Rave is over”.
