London’s Design Museum is reopening, to the beat of a soundtrack by French DJ Laurent Garnier. Its new show is called Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers, and it provides a powerful argument in support of the importance and vitality of electronic music, and a counter-narrative to those who still maintain that it is somehow not “real” music.
