Tiesto discusses future of EDM, worldwide, and in India
During his recent tour with Sunburn, Dutch producer Tiesto sat down with an Indian magazine ‘Deccan Herald‘. Over the years, Indias thirst for EDM and hankering for a plethora of international producers has made way to these artists. From Swedish House Mafia to Borgore, India has left its doors open for the entire spectrum of dance music.
Visiting the country for the second time, Tiesto commented on the status of India as a blot on world map of growing EDM destinations.
“All of India has become a huge destination for dance music. It’s so exciting to see what’s happening in India. It’s always such a great affirmation to see scenes all around the world get stronger and stronger. It shows how powerful this music is!”
During the interview, he also opened up about the current status of music as compared to previous years.
“EDM used to be a term for all of electronic dance music, but now it just means all the music that you’re not supposed to play. It became the new trance. It got popular, so now we’re all into deep house. And soon we’ll be over that. You can’t win. I wish we could have just stuck with EDM, honestly, because we finally had a term that captured everything in one big family, like jazz. But no, we had to be hip.”
And we’d have to agree.
