Borshch / 6
Borshch's number 6 lets himself be carried away by melancholy in the wake of the very strange period we are experiencing. With clubs closed and concerts cancelled, music has once again become something to be experienced in one's own privacy, in solitude. An act of faith against the chaos that surrounds us, almost a return to adolescence when, locked in our rooms with headphones in our ears, we imagined our future and perhaps, naively, expected it to be different.
In conversations with the magazine's editors, Lanark Artefax, Lyra Pramuk, Nazar, Hiro Kone, Bill Kouligas, Amnesia Scanner, Farwarmth, Helena Hauff and Racine examine bits and pieces of their memories, values and intentions for making music. When you get back to where you started and remember the days when the world was big, you were small and nothing was impossible, you start playing again. You are free and protect your inner child. Are you at home.
Borshch is a magazine for electronic music on and beyond the dancefloor. Founded in berlin in 2017, it’s a space to provoke open dialogues and challenge established ideas about making, listening, and dancing to music.
Through physical and digital formats, borshch discusses the artistic, social, and political impact of electronic music on contemporary culture in and outside the club settings. The print edition of the magazine is published biannually.
