Seoul Community Radio launches new virtual clubbing platform onit.life

Seoul Community Radio last week launched its new virtual clubbing and gaming platform onit.life.

Launched last Wednesday 17 March, onit.life was intended as a limited one-week free exhibition entitled ‘A Decade of Seoul Parties 2010-2020’. Visitors were able to control a first-person character around a 3D world containing ephemera and photography from a decade of Seoul clubbing to raise awareness of the city’s under-threat club culture.

Photography included in the exhibition is provided by six Korean subculture photographers: Stillm45, Hansy, Kaipaparazzi, Hyunkeem, Chosen1 and Sung1). A soundtrack has been compiled by fifteen Seoul-based producers, and one of Seoul’s most prominent artists DJ Conan is providing a flagship mix packed full of Seoul club classics.

Seoul Community Radio co-founder Richard Price has said, “With the physical club scene facing a triple-threat at this time from Covid restrictions, a lack of government financial support and negative societal perceptions, we wanted to create something that was a type of time-capsule of all the positive contributions the community has made to Korea’s reputation as a nightlife destination of note.”
