The Dancefloor Experience: Memoirs of a DJ
4 February 2021 @ 21h CET
Raving. The pandemic put the harshest halt to this one activity that is probably the most physically intimate collective human experience. Dancing with strangers on dusty fields or in sticky industrial basements now lingers in the dreams of those who danced.
For some, there is simply longing for this collective experience of sound and for others, this sudden separation from speakers and hip-shakers is resulting in a mental health meltdown.
How has this time been for artists without a dancefloor? Playing a set to an empty room is a very different experience. With venues shut and future events without a date in sight how has the artistic community been impacted? What is so special about the dancefloor experience that we are perhaps truly now discovering the value of?
Join us in conversation with veteran Dutch DJ, producer, event organiser DJ Isis, Berlin-based vinyl-only spinner KILLA and psychedelic force of nature DJ Nuky to hear some first-hand experiences, thoughts and dreams of three spirited caretakers of rave culture.
