”the Weather was wonderful and we thought it was fun to go out in the park and play music,” says technoproducenten Johannes Drakenberg in the Stockholm district court. He's charged with crimes against the public order act after the may 25, 2018, have held a spontaneous concert in the amphitheater in the city of stockholm.
Since you do not need to seek permission to submit an artistic work, so long as it does not pose a ”danger to order and security”, John describes Drakenbergs lawyer for the right how an electronic concert to go to and what is meant by " samples and loops: ”Dj is like a conductor who controls the music through drum machines and computers. Each performance will be unique. Therein lies the artistic.”
and feel young as techno, a genre that I listened to in 30 years, is still so new that it needs to be explained. At the same time, I feel old because I get nervous of an armed police officer sitting next to me and looks to be max 23. Call me prejudiced, but guys under 30 should not get the handle of the firearm. What if his girl end a relationship via text message so he is freaking out.
”Is it like Swedish House Mafia?” asks the prosecutor. ”More complex, I would say,” replies Johannes Drakenberg. ”The press started finished tracks. We had to improvise on the drum machines and synths.” One of the cops who came to the city of stockholm will also be examined. She says that the concert went smoothly. About fifty people were there and only a few danced.
”there Were a few system problems?” asks the prosecutor. ”No,” replies the police and is so friendly that it feels strange when the lawyer is in his slutplädering says that the police ”consistently harassing” technokulturen.

Now the verdict has been appealed. ”The consequences of the district court's judgment is that dj-events in Stockholm's public spaces and parks to which the public have access are free from the obligation to seek permission if the music played is artistic works,” writes the prosecutor, as if it would be a problem.
seems the authorities give priority to the fight against the parties in the free. 2019 introduces the police in Stockholm a special antirejvbuss who go out in the country to stop the illegal parties. ”Therefore, the best parties occur very far from the city, in places where the only quads and motivated klubbisar can get”, said recently my friend Hipster-Kristofer, which received its name from that he is extremely trend-conscious, to the newspaper Stockholm Directly. ”It will, in turn, have positive effects on public health. We will all be more well-trained and spend more time in the forest and the land.”
To skogsrejven improves our fitness level is, of course, good. But we should also not forget the spiritual strength that technokulturen offers. In a time when authoritarian movements move their positions become parties in nature a symbol of man's indomitable desire for freedom, her craving to climb up in a tree and cry: ”I am a golden god!” Therefore, although the court of appeal free Johannes Drakenberg.
