Diplo sure has made a lot of money off EDM for it to not exist.

Okay, so Diplo hasn’t exactly always said the kindest things about the EDM world, but we’re still having trouble parsing through a statement he made to the Chicago Tribune in a recent interview.

Don’t pack your bags yet, Diplo. EDM isn’t through with you.

Here’s what he said:

“I don’t think EDM ever existed to begin with. All these DJs were already big. They were already part of conglomerate management companies and festival circuits. A lot of cool things were happening in dance and electronic music–you’re in Chicago, so you know. You don’t need EDM to come in and save you.”

He added a Game of Thrones reference to drive his point home. “It’s always been like, ‘Oh, how can we sell Sprite?’ Yeah, the EDM winter is here, and the White Walkers are coming to eat you.”

We understand that he’s saying a lot of famous DJs already had some popularity, but wouldn’t that mean EDM has existed all along? Or does he mean it doesn’t need a separate label apart from dance music?
