Worst Things About EDM

Posted at July 7th, 2015 | by Sidhantha Jain | in Grapevine

Today, EDM has evolved into something more than just a music genre. They say Rock is for loyalists and EDM is for everyone. Perhaps, that’s true but amidst all the mass following, is it losing its charm and what it really stands for?

On a personal level, this is what I think is wrong with the contemporary EDM scene.

If you’re of any other opinion, feel free to comment below!

Top 100 DJs – djmag.com

In my opinion, this tally is not a definitive guide to the best DJs in the world rather it’s a list of ‘Most Popular DJs’. Going by the logic, the poll doesn’t consider the talent of the ranked artists but how often they update their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat accounts!




I don’t understand why people hate a particular artist for no apparent reason. I mean, an EDM producer receives the award for ‘Best Song Recorded’ at an award ceremony, so your immediate reaction is to lash out at the artist and call him fake just because he’s diverting from typical EDM? How childish is that? Speaking for myself, I believe David Guetta is one of the biggest reasons why EDM has made such a progress and entered the mainstream! Likewise, people complain that Tiesto has entered the rat race and stopped producing trance for money, maybe he’s just reinventing his sound? He’s good at it, he’s doing well.
At the end, no-one is forcing you to listen or buy their music!

I’m not going to say anything, just give a listen to the following compilation of VINAI’s greatest hits and see for yourself if these so called “Beatport Chart Toppers” are any different from the other tracks.



Big Room House
If you ask an average dance music enthusiast what elements would they want to incorporate in their favourite EDM track, the most common answer you’d probably get would be ‘a sick drop’. What’s worse is, today, artists are interested in producing only festival bangers and conceivably that’s the reason why, more than half of the Top 10 acts on the DJ Magazine are house music composers! I guess what most people think is, EDM=Big Room House. There’s a ton of other genres out there, try them, there’s something for everyone.
