GANG GANG DANCE!
...who lead the KNOW NO BORDERS feature
Gang Gang Dance, Brian Eno, Diplo, Afro Noise, David Toop
In the digital now, culture is a bustling marketplace where knowledge is cheap, sounds are fluid, and notions of purity shift like sand on breeze. Plan B revisits the debate around cross–cultural transaction with Brian Eno and David Toop and meets some of the musicians redrawing maps in their own image: New York's Gang Gang Dance, whose St Dymphna spins scattered global sounds into a dance both ethereal and ecstatic, global bass–hound Diplo, and Whitehouse's William Bennett, with his Afro Noise project.
