I came across this reading Mimag this morning. The article talks about the explosion of EDM in America. In an exclusive interview with Mixmag, Above & Beyond expressed their concerns about the state of commercial dance music and the effect it is having on dancefloors across America.
Jono from Above & Beyond talked about his experiences of EDM in Las Vegas and how he sees the growing genre: "The bubble in America is gonna burst. It’s got to the stage where it’s all about what we call The Playlist. There are about 12 records that these DJs are playing. They may play their own music in their sets around the world but when they come to Vegas, it’s a case of sticking to The Playlist. It's a bit cynical really."
