    *Acid House NFTs | Genesis’88 NFTs | NFTs Future*

    Wayne Anthony discusses the option of digitally archiving EDM history including The Second Summer of Love in 1988. Wayne is internationally recognised for staging some of the biggest illegal Acid House (Rave) parties in history. It was the effort of his organisation Genesis’88 and a handful of other large scale party promoters that pioneered a series of events never experienced in the UK. Genesis’88 flyers are highly sought and sell for hundreds of pounds.

    Wayne shares some thoughts and opinions on how promoters, artists and musicians can reclaim ownership over their creative output. Wayne was the first person to mint an Acid House NFT in the form of a Genesis’88 Chapter 1 flyer. A fitting beginning for archiving a generational shift unlike any other in history. Wayne has already created limited edition Acid House artwork for minting into NFT and will continue to explore this area.

    Behind the Scenes with Genesis’88 | Acid House 1989
    ---------------------------------------------------

    Genesis’88 staged three illegal parties in Ferry Lane, North London. The first epic party was on the 11th February 1989 and the last a few weeks later. Numerous waypoints worthy of note have been documented including fronting two police captains, standing up against two police riot squads, and staring down the barrel of a robbers gun. This is also the night their full security team demanded a cut of profits from then onwards otherwise they’d take the nights takings and leave. Thousands of people attended the events, many later commented on how their lives are transformed by Genesis’88 events.

Great show, with great guests - would be great if you did a show dedicated to Mensa and Sterns in Worthing.

Love it great times, three episodes in but please let the guest answer the questions instead of answering your own questions 🤨

Really enjoyed !!! Seems strange that I have revisited the music with Gusto over the first lockdown ( my friends thought I was having a mid life crisis, if that’s the case its been more like a whole life crisis, but what a trip 🙂) and then discovered this podcast after listening to the bbc ecstasy: the battle of rave. Found instening to the organisers and Adamski excellent. Thank you Wayne for your effort it’s been a joy to visit my distant memories 👍🏼🥳
