Philip Sherburne On The Grammys: “Let’s Thank Al Walser One Last Time Before We Forget His Name Forever…”

Philip Sherburne On The Grammys: "Let's Thank Al Walser One Last Time Before We Forget His Name Forever…" First off, how can you not love a headline like: "EDM Is Dead, Long Live EDM!" It got me to read Philip Sherburne's recap about this year's Grammys. I think I watched like 30 second of the show. And I only allotted that much time due to my girl yelling at me for 5 minutes to come here and watch. Maybe one day I'll give it more attention, but first they've gotta get their credibility in order. A good first step would be not nominate people like Al Walser. Apparently dude showed up wearing a space suit carrying a flag with his name on it....

Deadmau5 Raises A Good Question: “Is It Really That Far-Fetched That Some Guy Can Come Out Of Nowhere And Get Nominated For A Grammy?”

http-__makeagif.com_media_12-07-2012_YMzK7e deadmau5 said something on his Ustream last night that struck an annoying little chord in me, annoying because it was true. While begrudgingly forging on the topic of the now more than infamous Al Walser, Zimmerman asked: “Is it really that far-fetched that some guy can come out of nowhere and get nominated for a Grammy, and then in the same breath some dude four years ago can throw on a foamy mouse head and play a nightclub in Halifax? I mean, which sounds weirder?” Now, I know that more than most peoples' opinion of Al Walser,...

Twitt Talk: Al Walser vs. EDM Culture—Let It Out. “Please Tell Me This Is Borat” -Morgan Page

Twitt Talk: Al Walser vs. EDM Culture—Let It Out Oh man, is the world of EDM having a heaping heart attack today, and with good reason. By now, I think most of the world, or at least those in the world who follow and/or are apart of EDM culture have heard the name “Al Walser”. It’s been spread around like one of the great plagues since it was uttered last night alongside the names Avicci, Skrillex, Calvin Harris and Swedish House Mafia as a finalist in the Best Dance Recording category for the Grammys. Just like the plague, no one saw it coming, no one knows what it is (and I say...

deadmau5—A Laser Sharp Ray Of Piercing Light

deadmau5 It’s Grammy week in Los Angeles… at long last electronic dance music can take a bow towards an established institution not known for breaking rules or pushing boundaries—unlike the creed of all electronic music artists. It was just announced that Canada’s deadmau5 will be the first electronic act to perform during the televised Grammy’s this Sunday, February 12, 2012. Joel Zimmerman (deadmau5) will appear alongside Foo Fighters, Chris Brown, David Guetta and Lil Wayne at the awards show. Also breaking new ground is...

In case you weren’t sure whether or not dance music really has caught on here in the US, some...
