STASIS is a blog by your favorite pop journalist, theo ploeg. Here I write about new, sometimes old(er), music and pop culture curated by cat Adorno (he is a well-known dj in cat heaven) and me. Our angle is always the broader cultural perspective, not so much the music itself.

I’m learning director of the International Music Industry Lab (IMI Lab) in Haarlem, writer for FRNKFRT and Gonzo (circus). I used to work as a pop culture journalist and editor for cut-up, Opscene, OOR, The Quietus, Kindamuzik, and Bassic Groove.

It’s good to be in stasis once in a while, as long as it stays weird (xeno for life).

Our collection of interesting articles on the future of music can be found here. Listen to our curated playlist on Spotify.
