    Re: It's time to get rid of the "EDM" cheese.

    I believe you are the first person to mention Gordon Lightfoot on this board and in an EDM thread no less. That is quite a feat. Now let's see if any EDM band can throw in a mix of Early Morning...

    Thank you. This weekend will be my 10th Coachella and I have found an abundance of great music at every one. Maybe it's because I'm about 30 years older than the average Coachella-goer but I find...

    Re: It's time to get rid of the "EDM" cheese.

    I think it is correct to identify EDM cheese (but certainly not all EDM) as a "shallow trend." For that reason I have a "this too shall pass" attitude. One reason I can easily tolerate the cheese...

    Re: Weekend 2. Never again.

    Re: HOLY SH*T! The Knife was amazing tonight!

    Thank you. As a Knife fan I'm going to give this a chance but if it sucks Hot Since 82 is the only option. I'll pass on electro-swing, dickhead frat-boy rock, and Skrillex-lite.
