Never stop. Never settle for familiar frontiers. Never lose your curiosity. Or rather: you can, but you don't know what you're missing. Maybe DJ Mujava, Radioclit and Buraka Som Sistema sound like new and strange names. They're not from Berlin, they don't do minimal techno, you might not perceive them as not-to-be-missed headliners. OK, the first two things are objective and won't change. But on the third idea, let's be careful: because many people around the world have noticed that the contamination between the roots of African rhythm and the digital bass of futuristic and metropolitan dancefloor seems to be the new frontier of the sublime, in terms of dance floor. A real and authentic vertigo of adrenaline. Face it: we challenge you not to dance, or be moved.
Or else, the exploration can also begin on already familiar territory. Hip hop, for example, is the thing that (almost) everyone recognises, and which has radically influenced the expressive codes of contemporaneity, for at least 30 years running, whether you like it or not. But hip hop was born as innovation, as a challenge to convention, as a form of creativity that renders the impossible possible. It is difficult to find these characteristics again in the hip hop of today, which surrounds us in the meanstream, isn't it? We need to go and look for them. We need to explore. We need to dive into the crazy genius of acts like Deadelus, Gaslamp Killer, Daddy Kev. We have to come up against minds which are refined and visionary like Flying Lotus and Samiyam. With them, the real spirit of hip hop lives on. But on it lives: beware! in forms never heard of before.
