There was so much going on about dance music today. #selfies #hatred #namecalling ….let me rant for a change. I never go on about much but here we go:

First of all I LOVE dance music. I’m a raver at heart. I like big huge drops. I like techy vibez. I like house. Drum and bass? Check. Give me some wobbles. How about trappin with Floss? Fuck it. Isn’t it all house at the end of the day? Don’t we owe credit to disco? To reel 2 reel? To game changers like daft punk? Hell even to people such as avicii? Deadmau5? Aoki? Cities like New York? Los Angeles? Chicago? Detroit? Or maybe the undergrounds of Europe.

It’s not only music. It’s a lifestyle. You go to shows, you buy (bought) CDs. You play vinyls. You watch YouTube and vevo. You vibe.

All of this hatred towards people’s success is obnoxious. So what if cakes fly or selfies are had on network tv. Who cares if 300 thousand people show up and party. I think that’s pretty awesome. I think everyone is forgetting that it’s a party. Let them eat cake.

People celebrate around music. Let’s keep that alive. Name calling isn’t going to prove your worth. Neither is defending your cool “underground” ego. At the end of the day it’s all about the music…except in America it’s always bigger. We found your cool underground vibez through the internet and super sized it. We found your music, your djs, your idea of the party and we made it ours. #americaFUCKyeah ….we do things bigger and better and we love it. Let’s look back to a pivotal point in history- the British Invasion. Remember 1964? Me neither but I know my dad does. He went and saw the Beatles at the Hollywood bowl. All of a sudden, there was an exploding scene in the states. Fast forward a few years and you’re left with festivals. Oh wait- that’s like a throwback rave. With rock and roll. Corporations weren’t involved yet but you know they wish they could have…. SFX presents Woodstock. Yeah that would have been cool. But it still worked without it. Why you ask? People were about the party. The vibez. All good vibez. #PLUR

Let’s step back and realize that it is the vibez - whether dimitri Vegas and like mike or Dj falcon. Girl talk or chromeo. Carnage or skrillex. EDC or warped tour. It’s about vibez.

My final thought: get off your high horse and dance you fucking assholes. It’s a party.

I have been in this scene for almost 10 years as a Dj, club goer, festival attendee, promoter and connoisseur. I have the right to have my opinion.
