Dancecult is a new "academic"-style journal about "electronic dance music culture." It reminds me of the kinds of books about technology and postmodernism that I'd impulse buy in the early 1990s.

Here are the featured articles in the first issue of Dancecult:
IDM as a "Minor" Literature: The Treatment of Cultural and Musical Norms by "Intelligent Dance Music"
