MEDIA REVIEWS

A merit of the book consists of its insights into particular scenes, which is in itself a characterizing trait of DJ cultures. Valuable field research, historical research and interviews with scene operators and participants spot light on various contexts...Overall, this makes for a kaleidoscopic look at DJ culture. "Carlo Nardi, Rhodes University, Dancecult.net"

What is enjoyable about the Attias, Gavanas, and Rietveld collection is that it not only draws on perspectives from academics associated with musicology but also includes specialists in social anthropology, cultural studies, communication studies, and media practice. Not only are the local scenes discussed diverse, but the academic perspectives and disciplines represented include multiple views for this reason, it should be on the radar of scholar s associated with popular music, and certainly those interested in EDM. Selections from this book would also be well-suited for introductory courses in popular music or music technology. Eva J. Egolf, "Women and Music"

One of the strongest points of this collection is the attention it pays to issues of gender in relation to DJs, their careers, and their representations in EDM scenes. Gavanas and Reitsamer refuse to content themselves with merely observing that the DJ profession is male-dominated, instead striving to understand how this has come to be, how it persists, and what efforts are being made to change it. "DJ Culture in the Mix "is an original, valuable, and much-needed contribution to the scholarship of DJS and their activities in the EDM scene. Luis-Manuel Garcia, "The World of Music (New Series)""
