Dance music for grown-ups

May 8, 2008

Whenever I hear dance/electronica, I like it.  Basement Jaxx, Moby and Dizzee Rascal ring my bell.  I don’t know much about the genre, though, so I’m finding the current issue of Mixmag magazine very useful. 

Celebrating its 25th birthday, the dance monthly profiles “the 25 biggest names in electronic music: Daft Punk, Fatboy Slim, Basement Jaxx, LCD Soundsystem, The Prodigy, Moby, Mylo, Richie Hawtin, Roisin Murphy, Dizzee Rascal, Paul van Dyk, Goldie, Sven Vath, Felix Da Housecat, Erick Morillo, Sasha, Faithless, Underworld and more”.


If, like me, you mistakenly chose to ignore an important strand of contemporary music, and now want to catch up, the current issue of Mixmag is for you – it’s a shopping list compiled by experts.
