Look at this. This is your goal.

So, you want to be an EDM superstar? It's easy! EDM is blowing up like a 17-year-old girl in a tutu. Act fast, and you can catch some of that glorious LED spotlight for yourself!

Not interested in long hours studying music theory, beat matching, or production equipment? Fuck it! You don't need that in today's dance music world. All you need is a few key elements in your personal brand package, some easily digestible tunes, a demographic of your choice ... Et voila!

Just follow these five easy steps, and you'll be well on your way to becoming the next Avicii, Skrillex, Steve Aoki, or anyone else you want! (Does not include A-Trak turntablist package.)

Be as Young as Possible
Everyone loves a prodigy, and youth is really selling right now. The kids want to hear music from their own kind. Whiz kids like Madeon, Zedd, and Porter Robinson go straight to the top. Already older than 21? Start moisturizing and lie about your age. You're not going to impress anyone with ten years of experience and a gut ... Trust us.
