‘We are different cultures, and we should stay different cultures;’ Seth Troxler speaks on EDM and the underground
During Amsterdam Dance Event’s run of festivities, Seth Troxler was put in command of a microphone in addition to his usual duties behind a pair of CDJs. Known for his unbridled passion for underground dance music and its place within modern electronic music’s totem pole, the American producer spoke on an excess of topics during his “Troxler Tells It How It Is” keynote address.
The producer raises an interesting question given modern electronic music’s surge in popularity. Only time will tell if dance music can keep up with its own unrelenting pace and, according to the Michigan-born star, the music’s true voice still bellows from the underground, “We all have a really good voice in dance music, and in spite of the influence of the commercial side, the undeniable force is still coming from underground culture.”
