Why Has Electronic Music Never Had A ‘Punk’ Moment?
13:00 - 13:45
DeLaMar Theater (D5 Panel Room) | Marnixstraat 402, Amsterdam
As electronic music grows and becomes a part of every genre, is it, perhaps, all getting a bit too comfortable? After all, there’s plenty going on around the world that makes us angry and frustrated, so where are the protesters, the radicals and the people who believe we shouldn’t have to put up with such things? Where is all that anger and why are they not making their voices heard through the medium of electronic music? Club culture is showing its rebellious, counterculture spirit through acts like Bassiani, NON, Lotic, and The Black Madonna, but why aren’t there more artists doing the same?
