<nettime-ann> Journal Launch - Dancecult: Journal of Electronic Dance Music Culture


After the initial call for contributions some ten months ago, I am now delighted to announce the launch of Dancecult: Journal of Electronic Dance Music Culture. The first edition of Dancecult, a peer-reviewed, open-access e-journal for the study of electronic dance music culture (EDMC), is now live, with downloadable PDFs accessible at http://dj.dancecult.net. Alongside Managing Editor Eliot Bates and Reviews Editor Karenza Moore - who have thrown themselves headlong into the journal - I am happy to see the EDMC research mothership slide down the sluiceway to begin her maiden voyage.
