In Partnership with Fuser
DJ Plugsy, the fast-rising UK EDM artist, is to play a series of so-called ‘Plugsy Unplugged’ sessions for fans during lockdown.
According to a press release, the shows will take place weekly and will give Plugsy’s following – known as ‘Plugsy People’, ‘Plugheads’ or ‘Fusers’ – the chance to see inside the DJ’s home for the first time.
As an electronic artist, the decision to perform ‘unplugged’ was met with initial derision on social media, with one typical comment – from a user named MelloMagic – writing “WOT? Sound of silence?”
DJ Plugsy then surprised fans by confirming that he would, indeed, be performing without amplified sound, meaning fans will witness only his movements and actions as he goes through the motions of a typical performance.
“It’s an ambitious, one-of-a-kind idea,” Plugsy explained. “Haters gonna not love it.”
Reaction was split. Tommo56559 commented, “What’s the f***ing point of that then?”. Pluggggzyfan, however, said they were “Excited to watch”.
DJ Plugsy recently told NME he is deep into the process of making his second album, which is set to be called ‘Socket 2 Me’. He is also working on a video series for NME detailing the life of an EDM DJ during lockdown, titled DJ Plugsy: Locked Down, Plugged In.
The documentary series, DJ Plugsy: Locked Down, Plugged In, launches on NME in November 2020 – don’t miss it
