DANCE-O-PHO­BIA?

DNA Magazine - - FEATURE -

Amer­ica’s love af­fair with EDM has the rest of the world scratch­ing its head and think­ing, “What took you so long?” Amer­ica in­vented Disco – why have they shunned all gen­res of dance mu­sic since the Death To Disco days of the late ’70s? Clive Martin writ­ing in Vice magazine years, while you guys were lis­ten­ing to Creed, we’ve been reach­ing for the lasers and ask­ing strangers if they are ‘hav­ing a good night’. You thought this made us all ho­mo­sex­ual… Your party scene was con­tent with smash­ing ‘brewskis’, smok­ing ‘doobs’ and blast­ing the mu­sic of Kid Rock and 2 Live Crew… lis­ten­ing to House mu­sic was akin to lis­ten­ing to Judy Gar­land live al­bums. Now it’s the done thing. Some­thing’s in the wa­ter and it might well be MDMA.”

Kids in Amer­ica have dis­cov­ered dance mu­sic, which they call Elec­tronic Dance Mu­sic, and they’re turn­ing on to MDMA, which they call Molly.
