Ten Reasons EDM Is the Wimpiest Youth Culture Movement Ever
But at least Deadmau5's rise to fame was genuine. There's a new trend where DJs, record labels, blogs, and promotional companies are going around actually paying companies in Mexico and wherever else to help them make friends on the Internet. Sometimes, cheating can be hard, but this is just wimpy because it's so totally obvious. Sorry, there's no way you're most popular in Venezuela if you're based in a college town. You're a wimp, and you know it.
Of course, technology is a big part of the scene. Technology is actually really awesome, but EDM-ers find a way to mess all that up too. DJing used to be hard, it used to be for people who learned something. Now, any bro with a laptop can do it. The controversial "sync button" takes beat-matching, the most basic of DJ talents, out of the equation. Inherently, this isn't so wimpy, because it's supposed to free you up to do more intricate and impressive things. But most people are wimpy and use it as a crutch to deliver unenergetic, non-experimental sets. Shame on you.
