Editorial Reviews

Review

“Here are ten x-rays of dance culture in ten global hotspots that lovingly trace the history of each locale’s sound through its DJs, promoters and proponents . . . . Both scholarly and intimate . . . . Collin’s quest is never short of illuminating.”
(Observer)

“A surprisingly rich and resonant analysis of global dance culture. . . . With a DJ’s skill for the emotive build and drop, [Collin] deftly organizes these essays to illuminate club culture’s role in saving cities from bland gentrification; the health of the underground speaking volumes about the health of the society above.”
(Sunday Times)

“Fabulous. . . . One of the sharpest books on the topic I’ve read.”
(Michaelangelo Matos, author of The Underground is Massive: How Electronic Dance Music Conquered America)
