[embed width="600"][/embed]


Our friends at Italian-based blog Palm Wine are curating Open Arti — a series of talks on the mutation of art and music as a result of technological development. The overlaying thesis of the workshop being that "the idea of ​​'scene' is no longer inextricably linked to a city or a piece of urban space." In its first week, Open Arti hosted global bass producer/DJ Chief Boima and uptown NY underground dance princess Venus X for an extended talk on the shifting genre identities and that whole Diplo blow-up. Watch their interview above and stream two snippets of their DJ sets below.
