Press for ‘Tales From The Booth’
Tales From the Booth reads more like a DJ set than a paperback. It’s a curated selection of memories, stories and vignettes from multiple anonymous DJs that take readers on a trip through the backstage narratives of thirty years of club culture. Here’s some of the coverage around the book including a couple of key extracts for those of you who prefer to try before you buy.
