She's right, but her comments are nothing we didn't already know.
The Americanisation of dance music is a sad thing. Some speak of it as a positive, as though it's a great gateway into dance music culture for those who wouldn't normally bother with dance music.
In truth, it's probably a primary reason why I'm noticing a proliferation of fuckwits at gigs and club nights who are there simply because they think it's cool, not for the right reasons.

You're right. It has been said before, but I'd argue it needs to be said a lot more by high profile artists.

Santigold is easily one of the most talented pop artists around at the moment and LMFAO are easily one of the biggest musical jokes ever. That said, I hope she isn't taking aim at EDM as a whole, just that rubbish that seems to be coming out of the states a lot.

It seems to me that she was referring to music from pop kids like lmfao, as EDM.
I'm Sorry,
No.

Bit rich from Santigold. That Big Mouth song is about as disposable as everything else I'm hearing on the radio waves at the moment.

I actually would have classified her music as pretty much exactly what she describes.

I love you Santigold, but get off your high horse! since when does music have to be serious and arty.. like there hasn't been joke bands since day dot. for every crap band there's ten great bands springing up, and alternative non-mainstream music is going great guns right now just ask SANTIGOLD. there's so much great electronic music out there it's obscene- maybe if you wanna find it, turn off the superbowl and have a decent look before you paint ALL electronic "Euro-dance music, Ibiza-style" with the LMFAO brush.

ezy1000, I intended on heading to Jaytech for a look but had friends call me and tell me not to bother as the crowd was treating it like a mosh pit. This comes after several floggers started a circle pit at Digitalism on Friday night. Maybe I'm the fool for being surprised, but honestly, go and 'rage' in the U.S, you twats. What ever happened to dancing to dance music?
Luckily Spice saved my weekend (yet again). Why the hell are Americans so blind to Chicago and Detroit?

Her comments are utter BS, the whole "%u201Chire one of three producers, one of a couple of songwriters, and you pretty much get the exact same song every time" phenomenon existed, long, long before dance music got involved. The pop stuff she's talking about barely has any link with credible 'EDM' anyway.
