The Dance
Music Community
Reacts To Brexit

Big views on the big news from across the dance world.

Figures from across the dance music world have been taking to Twitter


This morning DJs across the country awoke to hangovers and the news that the United Kingdom had voted to leave the European Union. 

Quite what this means for the whole country is still anyone's guess, but without a doubt the dance music community has been overwhelmingly pro-remain. As the news set in, DJs, as they are wont to do, took to Twitter en mass to voice their reactions.


Opinions ranged from shocked


to angry


to ashamed

to confused.

Highlights came from Artwork


Subb-an


and Hotflush

It wasn't long before #StormzyForPrimeMinister started trending
