Introducing a new project. The first episode of ‘See You Monday’, a podcast centered around examining dance music through an interdisciplinary lens. Every Monday for the next few weeks a new episode will drop, beginning with today’s: ‘Transformative Spaces’.This first episode examines raving as a transformative practice, one that hinges on participation. The club vs the rave, reinforcement of values within subcultures, and how the individual is transformed by dance music.
