We all know that Tiësto is the GOAT of all things dance music. What we didn’t know is how he felt about the industry in today’s world. In his interview with Jules Lefevre from InTheMix, he states that “some people in the dance music scene move too much into the pop world. I think it’s time to go back to the basics and just release great, banger tracks.” Thank you Tiesto! We could not agree more. We aren’t going to sell out certain artists, but we have noticed that dance music has evolved into more a “dance pop” to keep these millennials happy.
Are we, dance music fans, happy about this transformation? There are mixed feelings towards this new dance pop era. We understand that, in order to make money, and keep a popular fan base, you have to change the style of your music. We are just sad to see some of our favorite artists lose their touch to the dance world because they are so focused on keeping up with their new fan base. However, those fans were not with you in the beginning, and are only with you now because of what they hear on the radio. So this goes out to our favorite artists out there that transformed into pop; please come back to us. We miss your hardstyle/dubstep/intense house music, we want that back! And as for Tiesto, keep doing your thing because you are and always will be the Legend of Dance Music.
