EDM is no long going mainstream, it is already there. Pepsi has just announced that two of EDM's biggest producers - A-Trak and Diplo (it originally reported that Skrillex was going to be on the remix) will be remixing Michael Jackson's "Bad" in time for the album's 25th Anniversary later this month. The track will be distributed through a special Pepsi-can that will scan via cell-phone to hear the track.
We have some mixed feelings on this matter. While of course we are very happy society is fully embracing EDM and giving it the exposure it deserves, we cannot help but worry what huge money-hungry corporations will do to the dance culture that we know and love. It's yet to be seen where this is all going, but let's hope it changes for the better!
More info on this remix to come.
