Having launched in the US earlier this year, Vice’s dance music website and YouTube channel arrives in the UK today, led by editor Lauren Martin.

The site goes online with a previously unpublished Daft Punk interview from 1999, plus exclusive videos from Jon Hopkins and Erol Alkan, plus an article on the life of a touring DJ by Annie Mac. Similar to other Vice sites, such as music-focused Noisey and Motherboard, which covers tech, it will publish a variety of video content, from music videos to documentaries.

Vice’s Head Of Music Alex Hoffman told CMU: “Virtually everyone in the Vice world loves clubbing and nightlife culture, but most dance content tends to be somewhat dry and prescriptive. We want Thump to become a destination for everyone that loves, lives and breathes electronic music. And we want it to be fun”.
