I went through a long period of not giving a shit about Deadmau5 but I'm back to loathing him for getting loads of kids who listen to bullshit like Skrillex and Aviici into modulars
As much as I love to hate things, I like Matthew Dear's perspective on all this jerk off dance music:
The rise of electronic music in America is great because all these hundreds of thousands of kids going to festivals in Vegas and New York-- wearing furry boots, living the rave dream-- are binge-drinking music. They don't care about quality-- it's about the epic build and formulaic comedown. But five years from now, they're going to stop that, and there's a good chance that 20% of them will stick around and start finding avenues towards Aphex Twin, Kraftwerk and Basic Channel. That's going to be an influx of people who are going to make this music last longer and be relevant.

I kinda thought about what Matthew Dear said before, because I remember myself rekindling my interest in EDM back in '07/'08 through Ed Banger shit then shifting to more IDM stuff like BOC, Autechre, Orbital, etc.
