A critical anthology on techno music as a transformative political platform
Examining techno music and its cultural life through the lens of current social issues, the essays in this publication argue that techno can serve as a platform for socio-critical discourse as well as an ecstatic and collective experience. How can identities be experienced and how do they intertwine in techno culture? The authors of this anthology offer tools and discourse strategies on the political uses of subcultural platforms. From the role of the club in a post-pandemic world to the interconnections between techno music and social liberation, this revelatory publication functions as a celebratory call to action in an era of ever-intensifying social atomization.
