My thoughts on 'EDM'... Watched Richie Hawtin's set at Marquee the other night & loved it, but the majority of the Vegas crowd didn't seem to get it. They're so new to dance music they only want to hear stuff they know because most of them are on holiday. It's going to take a while to educate. BUT the good thing is at least they're being drawn into the dance music scene, full stop. Albeit through a commercial avenue, if they like what they hear, they'll go off and explore more until they find their niche. I started by listening to happy hardcore! It evolves, as do our tastes and our styles. That's what pisses me off the most about people who moan about 'EDM'. We're all riding that wave together, whatever part of it we're on. So let's just embrace that we're part of what could be the biggest revolution in music since the 60's! Rant over :-)
At 5pm, my Come Dine With Me episode airs on Channel 4, tune in to see me not be able to turn off my own hob, have my bedroom turned upside down & host a "dance-off"... FUN!
