From house parties and music festivals to the salsa dance floor and the techno rave, the DJ plays a crucial role in stitching together the sonic narrative of the dance floor. But what does a DJ do, exactly? How does she or he create mood through music? And why do DJs still matter in a moment where iTunes charts and the Beatport Top 100 dictate what people think they want to hear?
Join us for a lively discussion between three DJs with specialties in distinctly afro-diasporic musical traditions - Wilfrid Vertueux (DJ Willy the Viper) (Latin music), Benjamin Lebrave (African) and John Armstrong ("world beat" music) - who will each share their experiences with moving bodies on dance floors all over the world.
This event is free of charge but booking is required and is available on our website. Part of the King's Arts & Humanities Festival.
