The phrase EDM has been popping up more than ever lately. I think the phrase originated maybe 2 years and has been abused throughout the masses and corporate America. Yes EDM is a corporate term at least in my eyes. I have been around house music since the mid 80′s and to me it will always be “house music”. If you see me tweet EDM, I am being my usual self that finds the phrase absolutely meaningless and stupid. So if you send me an email with the letters EDM in it for your track or dj mix, I really can’t take you seriously. In short, I think house music has become commercialized with the term EDM and the sheep (general public) have no concept of what real house music is. The sheep go to raves and festivals and wanna hear the same songs they hear all the time. That includes the tracks you hear all over the radio and nightclubs every week. House music is a feeling. How do you get a feeling or inspired after hearing “Feel So Close” 3 times a week? Before I rant more and make this a book, I wanted to direct your attention to an article courtesy of inthemix.com that hits the nail on the head about what is happening to the true house music scene.
