Moksha Art Fair... Acts like Govinda, Heyoka, Phadroid, and TONS of other quality acts. The event not only covers insanely talented "EDM" producers and DJs BUT also a cast of extremely visionary artist and performers.

Stop fucking calling it EDM.

 @richardwatts Grow up, Richard. There are way too many genres and sub-genres of Electronic Dance Music, so "EDM" is a necessary umbrella term for music journalists. It's unfortunate that "EDM" has come to mean mainstream commercial dance music these days. What would you suggest calling it?

 @seanlevisman  @richardwatts What's wrong with house and techno? Incidentally exactly what everyone else called it before the American mainstream jumped on board and thought they'd discovered something new.

 

I'm not one of these twats who bang on about genres incessantly but surely as a journalist you should recognise the need for them.

 

And "uhntz-uhntz"... give me a break.

Because we are not only talking about house and techno. These are dozens upon dozens of electronic dance music genres and sub-genres and sub-sub-genres, and an umbrella term is necessary.

Besides, we are not Resident Advisor or a publication for savvy house and techno connoisseurs. We are a mainstream publication with a responsibility to inform and entertain readers who are not as illuminated as you are on the nuances of electronic dance music genres. Miami is lucky enough to have writers on their weekly newspaper who at least know enough about what's going on in the underground dance music scene to presents a list of acts like the one above.

 

And finally, if you actually bothered reading my descriptions of the sound of each artist booked during Art Basel week, you'd see that I pinpoint what sort of style they are known for, whether it's deep house, techno or bass music.

 

If you don't like the way we write about your precious music scene, go read Resident Advisor or start your own blog.
