Electronic music is a platform. There’s all this controversy about the word ‘EDM’ but it’s more of a platform than a genre. It’s how music is made.

Sonny Moore (aka Skrillex) talking to Katie Couric in a recent interview.

Never a truer word spoken! Like Ben’s written in a recent post, EDM (for all it’s negative connotations) is no longer an underground thing – it truly is now part of popular culture. Or, as Skrillex says, it’s how music is made these days…

I agree. DJing is just a way to preform music of any genre. Electric techniques can be used to make such a range of styles no 3 letter acronym should be able to cover.
