So you want to get into Electronic Dance Music (EDM)

So you’re looking to get into electronic dance music, but have no idea how to get started. Let me just say that the majority of what you hear on the radio is crap. The top 40 songs are catchy to appeal to mass audiences—streamlined music with no personality and engineered to sell records. Lady Gaga is a product not a singer.

If you’re looking for some good DJ mixes, a good place to start is with Reid Speed’s Breakup Breakdown Mix. From Reid Speed’s bio on Facebook, “Reid Speed has been a dance floor destroyer for over a decade, and is second to none when it comes to heavy bass genre mashing.” Give this mix a listen and I think you’ll agree.
