I guess my question is why is there such hatred for EDM from the "Traditional" House Community? Is it because they don't think it's legitimate music? I think it's a combination of things but mostly I think that the traditional House guys are mad that EDM makes all this money and gets all this attention. Do they even know what EDM is? Sometimes i think they just throw a blanket statement over anything that is not traditional Dance and call it EDM. Did you know that, by definition, Acid House is EDM? Half the stuff you guys are spinning today is, by definition, is EDM. (EDM is Electronic Dance Music) Here is my statement to the producers on the issue: IF YOU ARE NOT PLAYING INSTRUMENTS IN A BAND AND RECORDING IT IN A STUDIO THEN YOU ARE EDM, TOO!
Cut out all that hate and get on with the music.
P.S. The funny thing is some of the EDM producers are starting to produce and play "Deep House" at their EDM shows with the statement that they "love House Music."
P.P.S. There was a similar hatred shown for Disco from the Rock community saying that Disco wasn't real music which resulted in the "Disco Demolition Day" at Comiskey Park in 1979. Some say that the event led to the birth of House Music because Disco people had to go underground.
