In 1988, a style of music arrived that not only revolutionised music but changed the cultural landscape of the world: house. Twenty years ago, in 1994, an even bigger surge arrived – propelled by the UK’s Criminal Justice Bill – that saw house and techno delve deep into the psyche of popular culture, from its music, slang, fashion, drugs and, especially, technology. This is the age of technology and dance music, in stark contrast to a rock scene that venerates the past, has been a driver at the forefront of these technological changes, as house and techno move into the digital realm and in so doing transform the language of the dance floor. Bill Brewster documents and examines those changes.
