Dance Music, The Dj and the Mix: Preserving and Celebrating the Artists and the Art

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Dance music djs create new sounds and new music using the sounds, beats and music of other artists. The djs are artists but how do we credit the new artist while respecting the original artists work?

When djs and remixers began to step from behind the scenes to center stage, the dj as an artist was questioned. Dj’s quickly became the stars of the party then international celebrities. Unpacking and documenting the creative process reveals the trends and styles of the individual djs. Finding the original playlists and preserving the initial mediums from reel to reel to records tells a story, but telling the complete story adds layers to the work of the archivist/historian. Artifacts and oral histories of the djs’ careers credits and pays homage to the original artists and highlights the great collaboration that is critical to dance music.
