50: A Possible History of Dance Music, 1963-2013: Cooky Parker, Nathan Detroit, Freaky Outy

[ELECTRO-TIME WARP] It’s an homage to our beat-bumping elders, a five-decade-spanning dance party and a highly anthropological study of the boogie. DJs Cooky Parker, Nathan Detroit and Freaky Outy will spin a selection of cuts covering the last 50 years in the world of dance—now arguably the most popular mainstream music genre. Maybe this event will shed a little light on the question, “Just how did we get here?” This installment is inspired by summer jams, and the trick is to try and not get too depressed on the dance floor when you realize the Saturday Night Fever-caliber joints are from a summer that is now long, long gone.
