Tiesto Quote: “I wish we could have just stuck with EDM”

Tiesto on the ever-changing naming conventions encompassing electronic music in an interview with the Deccan Herald:

“EDM used to be a term for all of electronic dance music, but now it just means all the music that you’re not supposed to play. It became the new trance. It got popular, so now we’re all into deep house. And soon we’ll be over that. You can’t win. I wish we could have just stuck with EDM, honestly, because we finally had a term that captured everything in one big family, like jazz. But no, we had to be hip.”

What do you think? Has the electronic music gotten “too hip?” Is EDM really a bad term? Leave a comment and let us know how you feel.

  1. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!|
