Electronic Music has grown into a massive global scene with DJs and artists flying around the world to clubs and festivals, attracting millions of fans. The result is a growing carbon footprint in our industry as we watch the effects of climate change accelerate. What are the ways we can address this impact? Is there potential to shift this negative to a positive? Can we show the world that our supposedly escapist culture isn’t blind to the issues? Eli Goldstein of Boston’s disco/house darlings Soul Clap knows as well as anyone the pressure of trying to be conscious of environmental impact while maintaining the kind of schedule needed to keep a dance music career afloat. And is doing what he can, putting his money where his mouth is: as an advocate for the DJs Against Climate Change pressure group. He of course tries to work on environmental concerns in the micro-management of their work life too, from reducing plastics to using more efficient vehicles. So this discussion will be a vital exchange of information, not just about the practical steps, but how we can continue to keep heart and spread the word.
