Giolì & Assia – Live electronic music’s trailblazing duo: Interview
With the vast part of 2020’s event calendar obliterated by the ominous Coronavirus pandemic, partying has shifted to a new, virtual experience that has been widely accepted and appreciated. This extends beyond your standard DJ sets to an array of creative electronic performances that have pushed the boundaries on every level.
