A great book that details the story of modern dance music – as told by the DJs who've spun it into such expansive cultural significance – the DJ Revolutionaries! Authors Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton have years on the beat – having edited and/or written for Mixmag, Wax Poetics, The Guardian, Time Out New York and more – as well as jointly creating and penning Last Night A DJ Saved My Life. Here they cover the wide ranging DJ talents that spurred the evolution of dance music from record spinning to synth playing, covering disco, techno, house and beyond. Those chronicled include Derrick May, John Peel, Grandmaster Flash, DJ Shadow, Tom Moulton, Louie Vega, Frankie Knuckles, Kev Roberts, Afrika Bambaata, Norman Cook, Paul Oakenfold, Pete Tong and many, many more. Paperback, 475 pages, and filled with b&w photos of the DJs, recommended listening lists, discographies and more. Book
