EDM has taken on a collective social stigma, where mainstream success is met with apprehension and disdain. Jaded fans of old write off mainstream acceptance as taboo and force-feed new fans the same placebo. Considering the culture that surrounds dance music, it feels ironic writing an editorial downplaying a pandemic negativity that seems to plague its fans. Since when is EDM a cult that preaches peace, love, unity, and respect, but whose first phase of initiation is proclaiming “Skrillex sucks?” Fans discredit artistic success, admonish saturated event markets, and criticize our thriving scene, all because they fear the mainstream. We need to change our way of thinking.
