How Jim Morrison Prophesied the Arrival of EDM in 1969

Posted at March 23rd, 2016 | by Supreet.cheema | in

The frontman of iconic band The Doors, Jim Morrison changed the music scene around the world forever. In his final interview in 1969 with Rolling Stones’s correspondent Jerry Hopkins, he prophesied the arrival of electronic dance music.

A lot of people like Mozart were prodigies; they were writing brilliant works at very young ages. That’s probably what’s going to happen: some brilliant kid will come along and be popular. I can see a lone artist with a lot of tapes and electrical … like an extension of the Moog synthesizer — a keyboard with the complexity and richness of a whole orchestra, y’know? There’s somebody out there, working in a basement, just inventing a whole new musical form.

Morrison also added, “We’ll hear about it in a couple years. Whoever it is, though, I’d like him to be really popular, to play at large concerts, not just be on records — at Carnegie Hall, to play at dances ...”

Scary right? In 1969 no one would have paid much attention to this but we can surely join the dots looking backwards. At that time Fatboy Slim was only 6 and Skrillex who would collaborate with The Doors for on the song “Breakin’ a Sweat” wasn’t even born.
