brand new issue of Dancecult journal, this one themed around "Doing Nightlife and EDMC Fieldwork", i.e. participant-observer, i.e. caning it first and writing the dissertation later type business.

loads of interesting looking essays spanning all over the genrescape and the history of dance culture e.g. "Looks: Studio 54 and the Production of Fabulous Nightlife"

also executive editor Graham St John's "Writing the Vibe: Arts of Representation in Electronic Dance Music Culture" looks like a good read, and there's reviews of a bunch of book including the most-intriguing-sounding Flashback: Drugs and Dealing in the Golden Age of the London Rave Scene
