Discographies: Dance, Music, Culture and the Politics of Sound – Jeremy Gilbert & Ewan Pearson, 1999

The reason Ewan Pearson makes such great dance music is because he’s thought about it really HARD, and along with his blog, this book is proof. Like Stephen Hawking dissecting time, it gets philosophical on the dancefloor, musing on how dance music gets thought of and written about, whether it’s even possible to do so, and why it raises so many issues of politics, gender and identity. It's all wrapped up in critical theory and given a good hard Foucault-ing.
