Originally, tarantism was specific incidents of mass hysteria in Italy over a period of several hundred years, supposedly brought on by local spiders, that resulted in people compulsively dancing until they collapsed from exhaustion. Tarantism has come to mean, for some, the compulsion to dance: being pulled in by an experience of excitement that can only be expressed through movement. Anyone who helps facilitate that experience in others is a tarantist, whether through music, promoting or creating immersive environments, becoming a conduit for the energies that motivate us to dance.
Focusing on dark, driving drum & bass and halftime, Tarantist seeks to express his love of movement through high energy journeys, challenging audiences to lose themselves on the way. It's not about blowing minds, it's about shrinking heads.
