With contributors Mixmaster Morris, Ally Fogg, DJ Derek, Susanna Glaser, Guy Morley, Alan James, Tony Marcus, Hillegonda Rietveld, Stuart Borthwick and Pete Lawrence. In its impressive ten-year history, The Big Chill multimedia festival and club has put on over a hundred events based around music, art, performance, comedy and spoken word. It has spanned the world, from Siberia to Australia, Norway to Egypt, England to Brazil, capturing the minds, hearts and souls of a new, open-minded era. Now, on its tenth anniversary, The Big Chill is bringing you its debut anthology of music related essays. Following the success of Matthew Collin?s Altered State: The Story of Ecstasy Culture and Acid House, which has sold over 50,000 copies since its first publication, Crossfade chronicles from a fan?s point of view the recent developments in electronic and ambient music and outstanding success of groups like Zero 7, Lemon Jelly, Royksopp, Bent and Talvin Singh.
