To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the second summer of love, the artist Misfit has created a piece called ‘The Periodic Table Of DJs’.
The Periodic Table Of DJs aims to use the image of the periodic table to visually represent the evolution of the DJ, all the way back from Thomas Edison’s invention of the phonograph in 1877, through to the Second Summer of Love in 1988: perhaps the most significant period of UK clubbing history.
The Periodic Table Of DJs celebrates groundbreaking DJs, clubs and technology that have shaped the contemporary definition of club culture. It ranges from namechecking Jamaican dub legends like King Tubby, hip hop selectors like Grandmaster Flash, through to disco pioneers like David Mancuso, and the early developments of techno.
The Giclee fine art print is A1 size and is printed on Origin Expression Textured 300gsm paper. It is being limited to a run of 100 pieces.
Can you spot your favourite DJ on there?
