Recently while in India for an show, Tiesto spoke with a local newpaper, the Deccan Herald, on various topics. One of his comments on the definition of EDM hit a chord with us as this was the original idea when we established EDM Life many years ago.
“EDM used to be a term for all of electronic dance music, but now it just means all the music that you’re not supposed to play. It became the new trance. It got popular, so now we’re all into deep house. And soon we’ll be over that. You can’t win. I wish we could have just stuck with EDM, honestly, because we finally had a term that captured everything in one big family, like jazz. But no, we had to be hip.”
We can’t agree more Tiesto!
