How was the musical change created in the Comunidad Valenciana from bacalao to mass electronic music and who were their protagonists? How did styles that are now known worldwide such as drum & bass, trance, minimal, electro or techno arrive in our region? Who were the pioneers of these genres in Valencian clubbing? And prize question: which international artist was the first to play in the Valencian booths?Génesis: escena clubber posbacalao en la Comunidad Valencia, 1996-2010, is an oral story organized chronologically that features the participation of fifty protagonists who managed to develop, with many obstacles even from the industry itself, a new concept of night after the bacalao stage. This is what is also known as the birth of Valencian clubbing. Some key figures in understanding the genesis of an electronic scene that, after several years of stagnation, thanks to their perseverance and effort, was once again at the level of other European regions.
