DANCE MUSIC FROM THE BEGINNING: PART THREE

Dance music is a hot place to be place right now. What began as an underground counter-culture has grown, over the last 25 years, into a sound that dominates not only global dancefloors, but international festivals and pop charts alike.

As the sun sets on Hogan's Beach in Tampa, Florida, the silhouettes of scantily clad girls twerking atop their boyfriend's shoulders stretch back as far as the venue space allows for undoubtedly the largest crowd this beachfront EDM oasis has seen.

WAX LYRICAL: BINGO PLAYERS

It isn’t often that a couple of teenage buddies maintain a friendship past young adulthood, let alone a prolific career partnership. However, Maarten Hoogstraten and Paul Baümer were never typical kids. Already an avid collector of vinyl and CDs by the age of 10, Maarten’s future as a producer-DJ was solidified by pubescence, and the day he met Paul, through his younger brother, two hours outside Amsterdam in Enschede, Holland. The two boys were both hooked on sound creation and even used the same ProTracker software to make electronic music.

There is just over one month left in the campaign to save iconic nightclub Zouk Singapore.
