CLUB CULTURE: PANORAMA OF ELECTRONIC MUSIC IN SPAIN
Coinciding with the publication of Loops 2: A History of Electronic Music in the 21st Century, we address the evolution of electronic music from the perspective of the national scene by the hand of its author, Javier Blánquez. The leap from raves to festivals as an example of their ability to adapt to new consumption habits, the current role of the so-called club culture in the era of social networks and the constant irruption of new currents as a symptom of the cultural story of the new millennium.
Javier Blánquez is one of the highest authorities in electronic music in our country and responsible for the recently reissued Loops 1 – which he coordinated with Omar Morera – and its continuation, Loops 2, an extensive second part of this “Bible of electronic music” which covers, over almost seven hundred pages, the evolution of the genre since the dawn of the 21st century and to the present. www.loopslibro.com
