Evolution Of Western Dance Music – See Where Your Genre Has Travelled!

See where your favourite genre began its life…

Music is a global entity. From the plains of outer Mongolia to the depths of the Amazon rainforest, every tribe, sect, social grouping and family have some engagement with music. If you’re anything like me, electronic music is the poison you pick.

Thompson have recognised this and put together this neat little map to show you just how your favourite beats, breaks and bass drops have evolved. Why not plan the holiday of a lifetime  and follow synth pop or jungle right from it’s early beginnings.

So when you’re in that dingy club in Dalston or a mega warehouse rave in Manchester remember the roots whilst you’re skanking.
