As much of an EDM culture explosion as we’re currently witnessing here in the States, not sure we’ll ever see the day when a “rave” is broadcasted live on TV—with no interruptions or advertisements to boot. That’s what Channel 4 outta the UK is going to do on August 24th. “House Party” is the name of the show and the night is being put on to celebrate EDM, the surrounding culture—basically the birth of rave and everything that dance music represents in the UK and its achievements since the movement began. Dope right.
Line-up for the TV rave is Grandmaster Flash (one of the founding fathers of the New York rap and block party scene of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s), Annie Mac (club DJ slash Radio 1 host slash tastemaker slash talent-finder), Erick Morillo (hello, producer of some of the biggest tunes in house music for almost two decades), Fools Gold el jefe A-Trak, Soul ll Soul, Horse Meat Disco (there's a reason why they have a reputation for amazing parties and unmatchable sets) and UK rapper Charlie Sloth as master of ceremonies. The six-hour show will be followed by a two-hour documentary dubbed, “How Clubbing Changed The World.” Chances are we’ll never see anything like this in the US, bummer.
