USA Today released a news article here discussing what 2012 could bring for us Dance and Electronic fans. Personally, I think that 2011 was a great year for dance which leads me to believe that 2012 is going to be even better. With so much talent surrounding our genre, and so many top-40 artists and dance artists meshing the lines now-a-days… the lines are starting to lift away.
Back in the 90′s Dance music and Electronic music were shoved into a box, and it had to fit that mold. Automatically if you listened to dance you were a raver kid or you liked glow sticks
(which were awesome by the way! I was one of those kids) but now, its much more mainstream and out there. I feel like the walls around dance have come down, and it no longer applys to a ‘mold’. What do you think Fusionites? Take a look at some of the highlights from the article here…
With dubstep artist Skrillex nabbing five Grammy Award nominations and superstar DJ deadmau5 landing three, all indicators say yes.
“Skrillex is a purely electronic artist, and getting a best-new-artist nomination is Grammy’s way of acknowledging the rise of EDM (electronic dance music),” says Keith Caulfield, associate director of charts at Billboard. The awards “have overlooked EDM artists in the past, like David Guetta and Moby. Skrillex is the face of all EDM at the Grammys.”
EDM is having its moment, says electronica pioneer Moby, who broke through to mainstream audiences in 1999 with album Play, which sold 3 million copies.
“For pop stars, their main currency is youth and the record label. For rock stars, their currency is songwriting and their ability to play live,” Moby says. “Electronic music artists are only as good as the last record they played, and their ability to play other people’s records. Luckily, there are a lot of good records out there.”
Last summer yielded a bumper crop of electronic dance festivals, from Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, which pulled in 250,000 attendees, to Live Nation-backed IDentity, the first electronica touring festival, which made 20 stops. Dozens more such fests are slated for 2012.
“If you go to a rock concert, there are four people standing onstage playing songs that sound nice,” Moby says. “You go see Skrillex or deadmau5 live, and there’s a huge production value, the lights, the sound. It’s hard not to be impressed.”
The audience for such spectacles is almost certain to get bigger.
“Pop music has become so aggressively uptempo, when people go to search for more of this kind of music, they’re discovering this whole world that exists,” Caulfield says
For those of you who don’t know, Stereosonic is a festival that takes place in Australia every year and it’s EPIC. I know a bunch of us here at Fusion that would have loved to go partake in the festivities. Take a look at some of the info on the shows, and some official photos that ended the 2011 tour! Don’t forget the video of epic proportions here on you-tube. There are also tons more photos, and some really great reviews from the festival over at In the Mix that everyone should read.
“After two weekends, five festival stops, a string of club shows on the side and countless bottles of Grey Goose, the Stereosonic tour is over for another year. With record numbers rolling up around the country and mostly well-behaved weather, summer arrived in epic fashion. Whether you were stationed at the mainstage, in amongst it at the Bass Arena, or roaming free, everyone’s going to have a different standout.”

Dirty South is at it again, and this time he paired up with Those Usual Suspects and Erik Hecht. Their new single “Walking Alone” is massive and has been all over the lips of the dance community well before its even been scheduled to release! The track was premiered on Swedish House Mafia’s takeover of Pete Tong’s Radio 1 show. The trio named the new single the “Essential New Tune”.
Australian DJ, remixer and record producer Dirty South has teamed up with Those Usual Suspects and Erik Hecht on a massive new single titled “Walking Alone.” The track has been firing on all cylinders well in advance of its release thanks to the mighty Swedish House Mafia, who named it “Essential New Tune” during their takeover of Pete Tong’s legendary Friday night Radio 1 show.
Dirty South will hit the road in North America in support of the single. The trek will kick off tomorrow (9/30) at Marquee in Las Vegas before wrapping up November 13, 2011 in Miami. For a full list of tour dates, head over to Dirty South’s official Facebook.
