Scientists on the Dancefloor: Dancecult Journal

A brand new academic journal is now out in the scientific arena: Dancecult: Journal of Electronic Dance Music Culture. In its first edition, this is a peer-reviewed, open-access e-journal. Edited by scholar Graham St-John, Dancecult articles come in pdfs accessible at: http://dj.dancecult.net

A book review of Global Nomads was also published in its first edition. The review was written by Charles de Ledesma, a professional travel writer and PhD candidate at University of East London. I am very flattered with Charles' words about my book:
The sub section "Techno trance assemblage: aesthetics of power and limit-experience" remains the strongest, most ethically powerful and revealing writing on the psychedelic trance party to date, certainly in an academic context, if not anywhere.
Thanks Charles, and congratulations Graham on Dancecult: Journal of Electronic Dance Music Culture!
