​This blueprint maps out the schematics of rave culture's vast history

The UK art studio Dorthy has created a diagram that outlines the extensive history of dance music and rave culture.

The Acid House Love Blueprint celebrates over 900 clubs, musicians, DJs, sound systems, record labels, free parties and radio stations that have played a crucial role in the development of acid house and its succeeding impact on dance music's rise as a global phenomenon.

From Larry Levan's Paradise Garage residency to the cultural revolution that was the Second Summer of Love, the poster attempts to trace how these pivotal events, spaces, groups and individuals influenced one another on the circuit diagram of a TB-303 bass synthesizer.

Some of the authoritative DJs charted on this complex and lengthy blueprint include Frankie Knuckles, The Belleville Three, Tiësto, Pete Tong, Sasha, Carl Cox, Danny Rampling, Massive Attack, Daft Punk, The Chemical Brothers, Paul Oakenfield and many more.

The 60 x 80cm single color screen print is available for purchase in both factory yellow and royal blue.
