A good, level-headed look inside the EDM-industrial complex. My favorite quote from the article:
"Electronic Dance Music didn’t grow into a serious industry in America until it was boiled down into those three little letters. Like KFC or MTV, EDM is an acronym that implies a lot about a substance that may or may not be contained in the actual product. But the idea behind an acronym like EDM isn’t about the music itself — it’s about the cold hard cash earned from selling the whole package to legions of people."
I’ve ranted long and loud here on how much I despise the three letter “EDM” label/tag/epithet/accusation and the baggage it carries. This article explains it with much more patience and clarity than I ever could.
Unfortunately, the author was apparently unable to interview the elusive mastermind behind all this, a certain “Eric David Morris.”
