Everything you missed from the world of dance music this weekend
Seth Troxler Appeared On BBC News
One of dance music's most outspoken stars, Seth Troxler appeared on BBC News on Friday afternoon. The 'Techno DJ and producer' was part of a panel to discuss Fabric's path to reopening. When asked if he thought "drugs were an integral part of clubbing culture", Seth went on the offensive and declared drugs a social issue, before skilfully pointed out that two segments prior, the show had ran a feature on 100s of pounds of drugs being sent through the Royal Mail. It was a bit of a bizarre segment, but Seth excelled at defending the culture, and it was well worth tuning into, if only to see Seth clean shaven in a button down shirt.
Fabric Reopened After Three Month Closure

Security, as expected, was ultra tight, but reports from the night have been resolutely positive.
