New Resource: The Dance Music Archive Documents 30 Years of Rave Culture Online
The Dance Music Archive has gone live, documenting 30 years of club and rave culture online.
A huge resource, visitors to the website can sort by decade and year to discover leading music news from the day and specially curated Spotify playlists based on the biggest tracks of that time. Alternatively, search by artist, DJ, or radio show to be presented with countless historic recordings, many from original DAT tapes.
Articles, profiles, and interviews are also available in written form, with current in-depth reads available on institutions like Liverpool’s Cream and Cafe Mambo in Ibiza, while video content runs the gamut from a documentary on The Warehouse Project to BBC Two’s 1997 televised dive into the burgeoning club scene in Leeds — now home to DJ Mag’s most recent Meet The MC star, ATO.
