By using VHS to film an experimental electronic music event, this film constructs a mirage of 90s rave culture through modern material, drawing on themes of nostalgia, euphoria, technology and melancholia, and demonstrating the presence of the 90s in modern dance culture. The footage is recorded at the EEL Disc night at Cornish Bank in February, featuring the artists Contxt, Terry Bliss, Medici Daughter, Hockeysmith and Lxury, with 'Didgeridoo' by Aphex Twin used as the audio.

DID YOU MISS ME? (series)

As part of a series of three, this screenprint presents a nostalgic snapshot of what lies at the centre of a modern rave event - the DJ or musician, and their interaction with technology. Often overlooked in favour of seductive dance stills, this VHS image creates a slower and more intimate nostalgic re-experience of 90s rave culture and highlights how it is very much still here in our contemporary dance scene.
