“Blackout” Attempts to Explain a Night Out

Have you ever tried to explain to someone who isn’t into the dance music scene what a night out is really like? You usually end up sounding like some esoteric idiot, because putting your real feelings about nightlife into words can make you sound like all you do is drugs. Shouts to THUMP for giving the dance music community a voice with Blackout, which definitely does it’s job in showing the good, the bad, and the ugly of the global dance music scene. We hate co-signing the drugged up glovery that goes down at the raves and festivals of the world, but we can’t ignore them, and no matter what Blackout is highlighting, it’s all done beautifully, and features a cavalcade of scene luminaries, including Derrick May, Baauer, Richie Hawtin, Dada Life, and many others.
