URL to IRL: How Gen Z Are Using Technology to Change the World

Delivered... whitney | Scene | Tue 7 Apr 2020 9:04 am

Technology has always had a fraught relationship with humans. From the invention of the phonograph by Thomas Edison in 1877 to the Pioneer CDJs introduced in 1994, every new apparatus, it seems, is often met with a suspicious side-eye from older generations. These traditionalists, or Luddites even, regard every advancement as the impetus for a deteriorating society. Those who do take these...


The Rules to Live By, Part I

Delivered... whitney | Scene | Fri 3 Apr 2020 5:55 pm

Our newest series Ode to the Night captures the rave as a rite of passage. Each personal essay reveals how the party scene is as much about hedonism and celebration as it is about coming of age. In the inaugural piece, writer Geoffrey Mak searches for himself within a helix of self-destruction and enlightenment during his first year in a new city. This is part one of his two-part personal essay. &#


How Does Electronic Music Respond to Climate Change? Enter the World of Eco-Aesthetics

Delivered... jfigueroa | Scene | Thu 2 Apr 2020 10:41 am

In February, Grimes introduced the world to Miss Anthropocene: a moody, high-gloss embodiment of the environmental crisis. Less than a month later, with the advent of COVID-19, everything came to a halt. As this new normal of social isolation ensues, our tense relationship with the environment becomes even more heightened. Against our will, we have been pushed towards the very drastic...

How Zebra Katz Earned His Stripes

Delivered... whitney | Scene | Sat 28 Mar 2020 8:38 am

8220;I’m not just this one trick pony, you know?” says Ojay Morgan, “I’m a Zebra.” On his debut album Less Is Moor, released last Friday, the Jamaican-American artist, better known by his persona Zebra Katz, boldly reasserts this claim across fifteen, club-ready tracks. He snarls, teases, and throws shade, intentionally showing off all the verve and rhythmic elasticity of his voice on top...


Show Support When You Can’t Show Up: How Fans Can Help Their Favorite Artists

Delivered... jfigueroa | Scene | Fri 27 Mar 2020 8:35 pm

COVID-19 has destabilized national governments, public health infrastructure, and almost every industry. As the virus spreads, the music community, which has been centered around “experiences” for the last decade (i.e. forcing artists out of the studio and onto stages to make up for a lack of any passive income based on their craft), is particularly under threat. The pandemic has shown us how...


From Burning to Babylon, Seven Movie Clubs You Can Visit Without Breaking Quarantine

Delivered... whitney | Scene | Tue 24 Mar 2020 11:22 am

Movies are exactly like real life. Everyone’s an architect, or a lawyer, or a reporter, or an assassin. Everyone works 45 minutes a week, unless they’re detectives, in which case they work 25 hours a day. When they’re not working, people like to walk on the beach or hang out in their favorite bar, where they never need to shout, no matter how crowded it gets. People never go to the bathroom...


Beyond Merch: Fashion’s Obsession With Club Music Comes Full Circle

Delivered... ztippitt | Scene | Mon 23 Mar 2020 11:28 am

Club music and fashion have always been inextricably intertwined. For those in the club community, clothing signals affiliation within the subculture, and whether you abide by the clean lines and monochromatic style of the techno crowd or the more disheveled, leather-clad look of those in the industrial and EBM niche, your look says a lot about you. Scene-specific clothing gives the club-goer a...

Boiler Room x TEB Budapest: Sound and Styles of the Anything-Goes Everyman

Delivered... whitney | Scene | Tue 17 Mar 2020 1:10 pm

From reserved to risqué to a bit too rowdy, the Boiler Room x Electronic Beats Budapest function on 5 March was full of quintessential club-goer archetypes. Parties, no doubt, enable all the entertaining (and sometimes messy) sides of the human experience. Now, in these uncertain times, this is the sin non qua of the club ecosystem and the aspect of the dancefloor we miss the most:


Nazar’s Final Battle Cry

Delivered... whitney | Scene | Fri 13 Mar 2020 5:55 pm

Nazar was seven years old watching the television when the news anchor suddenly announced that his father and namesake, Alcides Sakala Simões, had died. Living in Brussels, Belgium at the time, he remembers his mother screaming for him to be taken to an adjacent room and his sisters crying as they continued to watch the broadcast.

Continental Drift: 20 Curated Club Tracks From Around the World

Delivered... ztippitt | Scene | Tue 10 Mar 2020 7:31 pm

Dance music is often understood through a lexicon of movements and places. Now tidily historicized, it can be comforting to look back on the clean lines of progress from its embryonic stage in the late 1970s on through the 1990s rave explosion and into its current moment of commercial and cultural normativity. It makes sense, after all, that disco led into house and that the myriad forms played on...

Delivered... Caroline Whiteley | Scene | Thu 5 Mar 2020 11:16 am

There was a key moment during Kelela’s Take Me Apart concert at Berghain, just before the artist launched into “Better,” when the room suddenly illuminated in soft monochrome lights and subdued shades of gold. As the white smoke engulfed her, she held back tears and announced to the crowd, “This one always makes me cry.
