Watch This: Seth Troxler Defends Clubbing Culture In Interview With BBC

The danced music scene and clubbing culture have often been associated with drugs, and while a number of luminary figures from the scene have spoken against the generalization, the notion still remains.

A recent incident on the same lines saw one of the world’s most iconic nightclubs, Fabric, shut down due to a drug related death last year. However, a successful campaign to save the nightclub brought back the club from the brink of extinction. In a recent interview with BBC, Seth Troxler discusses drug abuse when asked if drugs are an integral part of clubbing culture:

Drugs are a social problem…this isn’t only a club problem. When you look at pop music today, or pop culture, drugs are littered throughout the entire culture. The idea that dance music culture is to blame for drug use is completely ridiculous.

There are drug deaths everywhere. There are drug deaths on the street right now in London because of the heroin epidemic, but no one is talking about that. I think this is more of a story where the Council was trying to gentrify the neighborhood and using Fabric as an example for their greater will.
