Hello all,

Hope you all had a nice Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year. As an end of year message I would like to emphasise the importance of cultural knowledge and passing on information from generation to generation which in turn, sustains the truthfulness of our music movement, like any other. With electronic dance music however, it is slightly different as, for being a relatively young movement, it has not been documented as widely as it should have in my opinion, such as in the academic realm as we still find ourselves trying to prove its cultural relevance in many ways as seen during fabric’s recent closure. I have, over the years, compiled lists of documentaries which guides us through this history and later contributed to some groups like the programme for Electronic Dance Music at City University where I did my Masters so I would like to share them here. They go through Disco, House, Techno, Geek (gear, technology, etc), amongst other things. They travel through showing how House made its way to the UK while Techno made its way to Berlin / Germany and how advances in technology had an impact in the history of music making.
