City Pop. An amalgamation of pop, disco, funk, R&B, boogie, jazz fusion, Latin, Caribbean and Polynesian music, the genre was tied to a tech-fueled economic bubble and the new leisure class it created. Forty years later, City Pop has seen something of a resurgence as pop music adjusts to a new technological paradigm dominated by streaming as well as YouTube's algorithms. City Pop is less a strict genre term than a broad vibe classification. As part of Natsu at Alserkal Avenue, The Flip Side will be doing a special 2 hour City Pop Showcase with selectors 199x & almo١٠٠ Djing as ‘199x١٠٠’. Come & join us for 2 hours of City Pop magic on June 25th, 2022 from 3-5pm.
