EDM: Back to School
The summer may be over, but the party doesn’t have to be. Venues anticipate a back-to-school extravaganza to happen and promoters, graphic artists, DJs, bouncers, dancers and bartenders are all geared to make it successful for everyone. Most work to glamorize the night life to its fullest potential and a heavy booking schedule is now available for most clubs.
Tumbling down to EDM beats is one of the most self-indulgent thing you can do when reuniting with your friends because it lets you feel like you’re picking up right where you left off. EDM is definitely mainstream in some aspects, depending on how you define the mainstream techno/house culture, but it ultimately shifts over to the underground side. For instance, if you go to an EDM night club between 10pm and 2 am you will definitely hear music by the heavy hitters of mainstream EDM producers, such as Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Skrillex, Tiesto, and Deadmau5 versus underground, heavy-hitting, world-known DJs/producers like Richie Hawtin, Ferry Corsten, Cajmere, Tiefschwarz, Jay Lumen, and Ian Pooley. In after-hour clubs and warehouses, the diversity in music is concentrated into melodic, heavy-base, wobbly beats and lush synths, and club goers feel a sense of unity as the music takes control of mind, body and soul.
Students can podcast or stream EDM digital radio stations from around the globe for the latest in new groundbreaking tracks. This is the best way for anyone to stay current with the culture.
