Biodegradable Soundsystem is a written, verbal and sonic dialogue, melding an aural scenery with editorial research via a monthly radio slot, concentrating on micro-climates of dance music culture. This symbiosis of communication shapes a sustainable narrative, building a diverse archive of source material.
This episode soundscapes the feature with Tony Davis, a photographer from Nottingham who documented the acid house era and early rave scene of The Midlands, Ibiza, Rimini and beyond. He shot under-the-radar clubs and parties like Venus, Koolkat, the legendary Eclipse night in Coventry as well as Nottingham’s DiY Sound System events, Datura and Rhythm Collision. Grace Sands, formerly known as Digs from Nottingham’s DiY Sound System, provides a one hour archive mix from Ivan Smagghe’s apartment after a night at The Rex Club, Paris ‘98.
This is exquisite. Can we have tracklists?!
