  • When words fail us as music journalists, it's usually a strong sign that something vital is happening. These past couple years, this has increasingly been the case when discussing new club music. It's as if at a certain point the idea of genre simply crumbled, and from the wreckage came a new generation of club music and fans. GHE20G0TH1K, Night Slugs and Fade To Mind are seen as foundational outfits in this movement—a movement defined by an anything-goes approach to sound, a heightened awareness of social and political issues, and a fluid relationship between the underground and the mainstream. On this full-length edition of The Hour, we met some of the artists, labels, fans, promoters and writers—Venus X, Kingdom, Bok Bok, Janus, NAAFI, NON Worldwide, Creamcake and Adam Harper among them—who make up part of this loosely connected scene. We heard how, above all else, it's an attitude rather than a sound that defines them. Producers / Martha Pazienti Caidan and Ryan Keeling Contributing reporter / Max Pearl Photo credit / Opte
