Six Signs EDM Has Totally Sold Out

Models turned DJs turned models again.
Did you know EDM is a big moneymaker? Nothing sells better than sex, drugs, and uhntz uhntz. And now, thanks to modern technology, you don't even have to be a respectable, talented DJ to cash in on the molly moola express.

Corporations are dying to sign contracts with these party professionals. No need to be a champion turntablist or a hit machine, you just have to appeal to the right audience -- the ones with the money -- and, if you're a woman, be devastatingly attractive.

Oh, and have no qualms about accepting thousands in return for tricking the world into spending money on shit they really don't ever need -- ever.



Avicii and Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply
Avicii takes the prep-poop clothing line to new le7els of douchery with his special line of denim products. The shooting-star Swede said the combination was a perfect fit because, "I express myself through my music and what I wear. Most days you can find me in jeans and a flannel shirt," which usually implies blue-collar working-class hero, but today it's more like millionaire mogul cashing out. We have to admit, it's classier than Ed Hardy, but we still find it depressing. Especially because you can't even wear this high-priced shit and get into the kind of club Avicii plays.

So what? Some artists made some advertisements, what's wrong with that?

You do realise that the E in 'EDM' is superfluous, right? Dance music is electronic by nature. There are so many things wrong with this article I don't even know where to start.

So, the premise of this entire article is that corny commercial DJs like Tiesto and Swedish House Mafia were not sellouts to begin with? Swedish House Mafia? The Abba of electronic music? That one? Is that your premise? If so I reject that premise.

LOL, Ultra paid off the city of Miami, FL for the 2nd weekend to happen without issue. Seems the big concern was that 2 consecutive weekends would kill the grass in the park. The bribe and extortion game was on, in the end that sweet spot was found for a payoff. And the grass in the park, it never got that stay of execution the city was after. Even funnier, the local businesses don't seem to mind either. In the end everyone that matters got paid quite well.
