How do I into EDM? I like artists like LCD Soundsystem, Daft Punk, Aphex Twin, and The Avalanches...but I don't think they're EDM. So pardon my ignorance, but what is EDM and how do I get into it?
>>
EDM is the shitty wannabe version of every artist you posted
David Guetta and Avicii stuff

Basically what every pop song is on the radio

Wouldn't recommend getting into EDM, it's a pretty shitty and formulaic genre. There's some good shit there to, just like any music genre. If you like Daft Punk you'd probs like Justice as well.

Try this fucker out

go to america and find a "rave"
>>
>>54068451
I know David Guetta and Avicii are (shitty) EDM. I was hoping there were good artists in the genre.
>>
>>54068551
Fucking american "raves." Just a bunch of asshats on mdma
>>
>>54068451
>>54068494

what about like Kavinsky and Zhu? surely they're not as bad as David Guetta and Avicii
>>
>>54068407
Flight Facilities is definitely worth a listen.

>>54068585

Nice.

OP, try checking out PrototypeRaptor, OVERWERK, Haywyre, Lemaitre, Kill Paris, Uppermost, Wolfgang Gartner and Savant.
>>
>>54068494
Listen to Aphex Twin - Drukqs, or Syro tracks 4-6-8

Then try believing that again.
>>
>>54069388
That's not EDM though
>>
>>54068494
it's your view on EDM that is shitty and formulaic
>>
>>54069525
it's the term EDM that is too limitative

in his last album, Richard D James has a track that is a pure ironic move on the fact that he is altogether superinfluential and quite distant musically from electronic music meant to 'dance'

strange that nobody talks about breakz, nuskool breakz, drum&bass, breakcore, techno.

I would be you, OP, I would use Soulseek (or SoulseekQt on mac) and start browsing.

PROTIP: Euros have never called it EDM, we've always just called it dance music
>>
>>54070011
There's a difference between utilizing repetition and being formulaic.
>>
>>54070047
True, the umbrellas we used in my youth were ''dance music'' and ''chillout music'' or ''rave music'' (until '94). Or the genre names of course.
>>
>>54068407
>LCD Soundsystem
>Daft Punk
>Aphex Twin

OP please kill yourself for putting him in that list
>>
>>54071466
yeah, James Murphy should not be there.
>>
>>54071501
Kill yourself

>>54070047

>tfw Mericans Give something a new name and think they invented it. Europoors have been making "EDM" since the early 90's.

that's a pretty good start. particularly recommend mr. carmack and claude vonstroke.

>>54071466
the only reason that puts him apart from the other artists in the list is his pretentiousness
