EDM is, quite frankly, a bit of a poisonous term for many. Whilst 99% of EDM is bottom-of-barrel trash, made on cracked copies of Ableton and Sylenth by people who should probably know better. There’s is some merit to EDM, just look at producers like Eric Prydz, he manages deliver big-room tracks that are just as gaudy as most EDM producers, yet he manages to make it work most of the time.
So what’s going here?
Well, we’re not sure. It’s probably the difference between someone who can make a track and someone who really knows how to craft each individual sound in a way that just oozes technical ability. That’s what Prydz does with some of his more commercial output. Or it could be money.
So who else does this technical EDM?
Well, Notaker for one. His music is firmly in the realm of big-room – but it’s so well crafted, especially on a technical level, it’s really hard no to be taken in by it. Throw in a some clever stutters, a M83 squeak, and some Robert Miles melodies and you’ve got yourself a really cool track.
