A King's College London Arts in Society Project

Sat 25 Nov 2017
20.00 - 01.00
South Wing

BOOM! A Rave in Blackness takes place in The Deadhouse, a space underneath the Somerset House courtyard, with music stretching from techno to r’n’b, and from house to experimental music.

Evan Ifekoya curates a selection of sound works that explore the relationship between listening and queerness, and between listening and community, with contributions from black artists from across the gender spectrum.  

Featuring DJs Josh Caffe, Venus Ex Machina, Shy One, Marcia Carr, and madison moore.

BOOM! The Politics of Black Sound is a research project supported by the Cultural Institute at King’s College London and Somerset House Studios. Studio Associate Evan Ifekoya and madison moore, a researcher in the Department of English at King’s College London, co-leaders of BOOM!, think about the relationships between sound and blackness, sound and queerness, highlighting black femmes, black queer female and non binary artists in electronic dance music worlds. 

Please note this is an 18+ event.
