The story of how Electronica brought an entire generation together in peace and revolutionized the entertainment business, all without ever waking up before noon. Through hundreds of personal interviews and thousands of hours of research, James Cummins has put together a snapshot of a culture representing millions around the world. It is the lost history of hundreds of little-known genius DJs whose fame never flowered, and the need for something more in the world felt deep in the throat of a youth growing up in the Information Age.
Ambrosia: About a Culture has been called the most important book ever written on the subject of modern music by none other than the grandfather or all DJs and Billboard award winner Tom Savarese. It is certainly the most complete and original investigation into the rave scene and Electronica ever written.
