Vice has announced they will be releasing an Electronic Dance Music & Culture Channel ‘Thump’. Vice is known across the globe throughout the younger generations, and this is another huge step for EDM. VICE was launched in 1994 as a ‘punk zine’ and has since expanded into a leading global youth media company with bureaus in over 30 countries. VICE operates the world’s premier original online video destination, VICE.COM, an international network of digital channels, a television production studio, a magazine, a record label, an in-house creative services agency and a book-publishing division.
Launching on April 17th, 2013 as electronic music and dance culture continues to resonate across the world, THUMP is set to help define a cultural movement uniting young people into a fanatically devoted community. With a focus on the full range of electronic music and culture, from massive festival stages to renegade warehouse parties, THUMP will chronicle every aspect of the global dance music movement: the music, the artists, the fans, the experience. Through original videos from the most electrifying events around the globe, to weekly music video premieres, mixes from the most forward-thinking DJs, and an engaging slate of editorial features, THUMP offers a unique portal into the culture of electronic music. Vice will be doing it all, the ultimate access for you to get all different angles of the dance music scene. You won’t just see the sky camera view of festivals, you will be in DJs living rooms. You can check out more on their website and Youtube channel.
