So, there’s a new Hollywood movie about EDM, We Are Your Friends.
I actually thought it was a parody at first, I was laughing so hard at Zac Efron being all earnest and sh* t. It’s full of amazingly bad quotes, the sort that make you want to repeatedly stab your David Guetta voodoo doll in the bad places. This is our favourite though: ‘ 1 laptop, some talent and one track is all it takes.’
Congratulations. You’ve basically distilled 40 years of club culture, 40 years of disco, house and techno, 40 years of love and struggle into a crappy epithet, a truly staggering achievement. Frankie Knuckles is literally turning in his grave ( RIP) at the thought of his hard work and ‘ Tears’ being stained by your p* ss- awful, lowest common denominator version of dance music.
Another nail in the commercial coffin of dance music.
