Electronic music in the virtual world
New article about digital djing and Sandwell District on my Fresh Static blog, inspired by their appearance on Dommune in January.
"..there seemed to be a lot lost in translation when Sandwell District played on Dommune in January. They created a superb synthesis of old and new music, but didn’t build up much momentum along the way or sustain a mood – It was a bit of a mish-mash. However, both the successes and failures of Sandwell District epitomise another kind of digital revolution – the way digital and software tools have changed djing, the music djs have to play with, and even the way a dj set is perceived. The classical idea of the dj “taking the listener on a journey” has been abandoned, and new ways of djing have emerged."
