DJ Facebender needs to get his Facebook page going if he's going to have a shot at this new Simon Cowell, American Idol like reality show that seems to be in the works. Do you remember that X Factor rumor that was going around earlier this year? The backlash was pretty significant. Even Steve Lawler took the piss with this video:
So this new show… The website edmcasting.com has little info about what exactly it's going to be. It basically says that casting has begun for the first electronic dance music reality/competition and that all producers and DJs should start honing their skills…followed by a big sign up form to fill out for those interested in getting involved.
The people behind the casting are Doron Ofir Casting, a division of Popular Productions. Their website tells me that their "casts are the most recognizable, talked about, and memorable in the history of non-scripted television." That and they've worked on shows like: Jersey Shore, A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila, Paris Hilton’s My New BFF, RuPaul’s Drag Race, Millionaire Matchmaker.
So there you have it…the company responsible for finding the douches that star in some of the worst TV in the history of TV is now about to, I dunno, kill EDM culture? I wish this was April and I was just fooling you all, but it's not. I'm sure more underground feathers will be ruffled… let the Twitt Talk begin.
