EDM now more than ever needs a face to represent it to the world. Even though DP were never, I would say, a particularly good face that could explain what the hell was going on, they were pretty much it. Now all the top dogs left to choose from, in some way or another, are a walking example of what parents and regulators hate about the scene (drugs, attitude, complete disconnnection from reality, all about the money, etc). DP at least avoided those pitfalls.
It’s funny, I sat down to work on music last night and couldn’t come up with anything. I just wasn’t feeling inspired. And now today the group that made my ears perk up and listen to electronic music, ultimately got me here, they’re just gone. Just weird.
