You can’t deny the booming popularity and commercialisation of dance music into the “EDM” phenomena and for many on the outside, this looks like just listening to generic cheesy pop-friendly beats and DJ’s who pretend to play music while getting wasted. They would be right.
As a fan of dance music and trance, in particular, it’s a little sad to have seen the scene become full of 16-year-old wannabes pandering to DJ’s who just pretend to play music, where all they want is the mad sick bass drop.
However, this new video featuring a legend of the scene, Eric Prydz offers insight into the hard work that goes into his EPIC shows. A true musician.
If you can look past the mainstream “EDM” FM radio artists, there are some real gems like Eric.
