I somewhat agree with the popularity in music bands... although hearsay, record stores, radio, television, etc. contributed to discovering music, the internet caused all of those points before to be obsolete. Music is very easy to discover now with the hundreds to thousands of artists out there.
The age range should be expanded. I believe it's the 15-35 year olds that is the general audience. EDM is just dance music. A series of synthesized sounds that comes up as 'catchy' and 'upbeat'. I can't believe this is selling..
Um... in most of the 'hits', the background music literally drowns the vocals.
EDM is very difficult to compose and make a track that stands out from the rest. Try it.
My Chem was nominated for a grammy in 2008.
Vocals are rarely drowned out in pop music. They are almost always the loudest part of the mix.
You can't really expand an age range like that. Just go to an EDM show..the demo is the demo. It's who shows up. EDM, pop, rock..etc. I went to a deftones show and the demo was more what you would want 18-35. But they came out in the 90s.
Music is in an interesting spot. Dave Grohl said at SXSW that "gangum Style" is an amazing track and he listens to it all the time. He was serious.
