This year The Grammys marked a significant turning point for electronic dance music. With Skrillex picking up 3 awards and Deadmau5 performing once again during prime time television it seems clear that dance music in general and dubstep music in particular have officially reached acceptance from mainstream society. Dubstep has unquestionably come a long way from the grimy basements and nightclubs in the southern UK where it began just 10 years ago. If the prestigious music critics who vote for Grammy award winners recognize the complexity and emotion behind electronic music then it is difficult for average haters to say anything negative about it anymore and for us here at TMN this is a very good thing indeed.

At the forefront of the movement is the amazing Deadmau5 who has also evolved immensely in the past few years from a great electro house producer to a audio visual demigod. In a Grammy performance that fused mainstream rock with his signature electro house style, Mau5 performed live with Seattle’s The Foo Fighters on their track “Rope”. Although the dissonant vocals are off-putting, this track does have some cool elements with its fusion of guitar power chords and heavy dance beats. So turn this one up as you sit back and watch EDM take over mainstream culture this year!
