The New Rise of Minimal

Minimal music’s growth in the past 30 years has been incredibly strange. Minimal has taken the world by storm in a literal sense, with its once-upon-a-time derided, yet now distinguishable sound bubbling up across the globe, from Detroit to Romania, passing through Rome, Paris, and Berlin. In this article Henry Ivry explores the history of the genre and how it’s become a world-wide favourite.

Marco Carola - Live from Space Miami

Marco Carola needs no introduction. The Naples born and bred DJ, producer and label head has brought Techno Napoletano all across the world with grandiose, energetic sets, allowing him to become an outright Techno Ambassador. His live set at Space Miami has been a blessing during lockdown, as he delves across the multiple meanders of past and modern Techno and Tech House, proving why he is one of the most in-demand DJs out there.
