Issue 3

Raindance SeOne - The Drome 1989 - 2019
In this issue, we shift our focus to a series of parties hosted by Raindance, pioneers of the early rave scene and the first organisation to hold legal all-night events in the country.

These parties took place in a series of cavernous railway arches beneath the old London Bridge Station. Over an 11-year residency from 1999 to 2010, these arches became a 30,000 square foot labyrinth where people from all across the country came to lose themselves in the music.

First edition, A5 full colour print, 122 pages, perfect bound.



Cult to Culture is an independent collective - born from the scene - looking to explore, document and celebrate early UK dance music culture.

Our main aim is to preserve an archive of the people, a collection of photography, moving image and text telling authentic truths about a scene and sub-culture that has shaped the world.

Through collaboration we aim to make new connections, to bring the past into the present and ensure it provides a reference point for a future that furthers conversation and artistic expression.
