So it's nothing new that large-scale corporations are a huge part of this industry today. As much as the U.S. lacked in so-called dance music culture, it apparently made up for in business savvy. Good or bad? That's not my call to make.
It's just funny to hear the EDM spokespeople of today boast about how they are now taking over the entire music business after "living underground" and "nurturing the scene since '88", when the reality is that the largest work for this "takeover" was done by colossal entertainment firms.
