Certain high profile DJs are “taking a stand for EDM” as if they’re talking about Punk Rock or some activist movement. In reality, a mere fraction of the people involved in the EDM scene today were around 20 years ago, “paying their dues”, as they claim.

So now the big boys are crying over the media drug outrage caused by their TicketMaster-fuelled success? Don’t bite the hand that feeds you, man.
