Traveling electronic dance music enthusiast and writer
Hi, let me introduce myself: Matthias London (Nodlon), a country-hopper, club-goer, and experience-seeker who observes, asks, listens, and writes. I’m currently pursuing a joint-degree in M.A. in Global Studies that marries all the above: Living and studying on at least three continents while specializing in the qualitative study of their respective electronic dance music cultures and writing about them. A firm believer that it is through narratives that we make sense of the jazz we call “life,” I use storytelling to engage audiences in critical reflections on inequality, decoloniality, pleasure, and resistance in electronic dance music scenes. Apart from that, I’m a full throttle adventurer. Believe it or not, I hitchhiked 2000 km from Cologne to Istanbul, biked 120 km through the Sahara from Cairo to Tunis Village, climbed the 5200-km-tall Iztaccíhuatl in sneakers and without gloves, and almost got slurped away while wild camping alone next the Santa Domingo river during a celestial rain. How else am I supposed to get inspired in a white collar society that best sees me wiggle my between the guaranteed-depression triangle of work, bar, and home?
