The Politics Of Dancing (vol. 17) – It's Not A Problem That We can't Fix (Coz' We Can Do It Indamix!)

mixerStating that there’s an evolution from a decade to another is a thing, but thinking that it’s necessarily synonymous with progress is no doubt another one. Of course, much would have been done to make our lives easier in the mean time (at least on a technological point of view), but what about the way we’re living as individuals? A simple look at the things back in the seventies should give a better idea about the why of these lines and believe this please, it has nothing to do with nostalgia in any form…
Funny how these spots like the Loft and the Paradise Garage (le Palace in Paris) remain quoted as some of the ultimate references in terms of nightclubbing from a period to another. Places where the mix was ironically far from being the focal thing on people’s mind, at least technically speaking, judging by the works of their residents. People who would make themselves a name not at all while searching the perfect beat to fit with the previous one, but displaying various atmospheres and moods and subsequently attracting different people on a particular state of mind. In other words, being at the opposite way to what’s happening nowadays generally speaking, with all these places which have literally become the HQ’s of tribes on their own with the help of micro niche specialist DJ’s…
In fact, nothing here but some other sign of a more and more fragmented society (ours by the way!), the aim of which is to isolate individuals, thus finding the easiest way to tell them what they have to do, where, when and this, by any means necessary (specialized TV/radio programs, game keyboards, cell phones and the likes…), with all the misunderstandings between people that such a situation may create. The consequence as a direct result being that someone into R&B would turn his back to House Music or some other form of musical expression, simply coz’ he would have been told that House Music was this or that and vice-versa, forgetting about the fact that soul may have various faces whereas the people in question might find what they’re searching for…
Yes folks, it’s nothing but dividing for reigning at the end of the day while trying to get us on more and more restricted areas, which incidentally ends up as being the exact opposite not only to the idea of freedom but also the ability of knowing each other.
Once again, gotta remember what was the idea of the late Fabrice Emaer when launching le Palace in Paris which’d been for much in his success, symbolizing the health (and the wealth) of a society, from the variety and… the mix of its components. Simply because black wouldn’t have any meaning if not confronted to white and vice-versa, not to mention the existence of the other colors. And I guess that’s about the same when talking about sounds, fragrances, tastes, but also materials and eras (cf. the Arts Déco period). Not talking about the basic principle of life, which simply wouldn’t be without the blend of a male and a female bodies… As simple as that, don’t you think?
