Meeting with David Brun-Lambert & Marco Mancassola
Two authors to retrace the adventure of electro music and the way it has - like rock'n roll in its time - changed the world. New lifestyles, access to culture, explosion of borders and class barriers, a perspective of the power of music through this new genre born in the 80s. David Brun-Lambert wrote with Laurent Garnier Electrochoc, cult book retracing the electro adventure. Marco Mancassola, in Last Love Parade, recounts his experience from his teenage years.
