New book explores UK cities' impact on club culture

Jim Ottewill’s ‘Out Of Space | How UK Cities Shaped Rave Culture’ takes an in-depth look at UK clubbing and its individual stories on a regional level. 

Available now via Velocity Press, the book looks at some of the UK’s most celebrated dance music hubs, including Glasgow, Manchester, Sheffield and London, as well as lesser-known “dance music Meccas such as Coalville and Todmorden.”

“Out Of Space is a mixture of personal stories and interviews with those who have helped breathe life into life after dark across the UK,” says Ottewill – who is also a contributor for Resident Advisor. “It’s an attempt to unpick the relationship between space and club sound, how that has evolved and why it’s important.” 

Across 300 pages, the book explores club culture as a whole, including its most influential movements and the challenges it faces. During captivating interviews with Norman Jay, Bill Brewster, Slam, DJ Storm, DJ Paulette, Chris Liberator, Geeneus, Josey Rebelle, Ashley Beedle and many more, Ottewill asks: “What does the future of our nightclubs look like? And where will they be? Will club culture still exist for future generations?”
