Whether you look to the side of Dance music in the Spotlights on Selfie cams or the side that lives in an underground house party, there is a thriving and growing population of dance music fans. Kaskade came forward and talked about his thoughts on where EDM is going:
“I don’t think that at all, obviously. I’m busier than I ever have been and I think, really, we just kind of scratched the surface,” he said in a recent interview. “As far as the impact that it’s had on the music culture, we’re kind of just beginning still…Just technically where things have gone, I mean from a disco ball hanging in the middle of the room to what Omnia has this multimillion dollar chandelier that moves around and like, I don’t know, will shine your shoes at the same time. Like it just does everything. ‘I want chicken wings’ – chicken wings fall from the ceiling,” he joked. “It’s just really unbelievable how far the experience has gone from just like a disco ball and like a laser to this massive, all-encompassing experience at these world-class venues.”
Don’t forget that the first ever electronic show inside of the Los Angeles Convention Center was thrown by this guy that sold well over 20K tickets, who also dedicated the entire week prior to supporting multiple DJs and producers in his pop-up shop. “There’s a lot of naysayers out there who are like, ‘It’s done. It’s happened.’ Whatever. I’m like, ‘25,000 tickets later, I think we’re OK,’” he said while brushing imaginary dust from his shoulder. We think he knows what he’s talking about.
Kaskade notably garnered one of, if not the largest crowd in Coachella history back in 2015 when he performed on the main stage. So it’s safe to say dance music will be around for many years to come.
