One minute, we were listening to pop songs with an occasional oontz-oontz, and the next minute, dance music artists like Skrillex and deadmau5 are walking in the red carpet at the Grammys and their sound is infiltrating virtually every hit on the radio. How did we get here? We joined with eMusic for a fun discussion dissecting the crossover. Alongside Stereogum‘s Amrit Singh, PureVolume‘s Maud Deitch, Brooklyn Vegan‘s Bill Pearis, our own Nicole Sia teamed up with eMusic whiz kid J. Edward Keyes to track the mainstreaming of dance music. Let us know what you think on Facebook, Twitter or in the comments.
