Dance Music without Noisy

Djakarta Warehouse Project (DWP) will be the biggest dance music festival in Indonesia, from 15 to 16 December 2017. This year, DWP presents a new stage with live stage concept.

According to Assistant Brand Manager Ismaya Live, Sarah Deshita, the live stage will be maintained and continue to exist until the following years.

Although this year’s live stage filled by the appearance of a number of hiphop musicians, but Sarah Deshita explained, originally, the idea of ​​a live stage is present to accommodate the band and singer who brought a disco nuanced song.

“Instead the first confirm in the live stage of the last year was CHVRCHES, so our idea of ​​a live stage instead of hiphop is Ideally LCD Soundsystem, Franz Ferdinand, Massive Attack and so many of those.” Sarah Deshita .

This is a unique novelty in a dance music festival. Because during this, dance music festival is synonymous with DJ set and electro music, whereas the meaning of dance music is broader than that.

Long History of Disco and Dance Music

If all this time dance and disco music is only synonymous with DJ set and electro music, you may be misguided. Because the phenomenon is just popular in the 1970s.

Literally, mucik dance is the music used to accompany people dancing. The music for the dance was first discovered in Italy in 1459 for the royal wedding.

The tradition of dancing to music became more popular when King Louis XIV of France appeared as a dancer on stage.

However, other sources say the tradition of dancing accompanied by music closely related to folk music that accompanies the traditional dances in each area that is often sung in the square.

Modern-day dance music began in the 19th century. At that time dance music played on the dance floor and became a dance to socialize (dance). In the 20th century, dance music became popular for the working class.

Dance music began to fame in the era of the 1920s and in the 1930s, swing is the most popular dance genre in the United States. The musical trend of the dance accompaniment was changed.

In the 1950s Rock n Roll music became the most frequently used to accompany dance and in the 60s it changed into RnB and Soul. It was only in the 1970s disco music loved many people and electro music began to grow. Since then the dance music began to resemble what we often enjoy.

Dance music is no longer just a dance accompaniment, but ‘up the class’, played in the nightclub to radio. Not just up grade, but also changing face and transformed into various sub-genres.

There are a number of names in the 1970s that make electronic dance music (EDM, electonic dance music) can be so famous, is Giorgio Moroder is touted as a pioneer of Italian disco music as well as EDM music, but there are also mention that Jamaica dub music also brought great influence.

In the late 1970s, the Kraftwerk group from Germany and the Yellow Magic Orchestra of Japan contributed to the development of disco music, especially EDM, which is now.
