EDM (Electric Dance Music) has become a new fad across the world but can the formula for this genre of music be getting a bit too redundant? Dutch producer, Hardwell admits that he is “sick” of the same old formula that is being used to create EDM. More and more artists of the EDM genre are trying to break out of the usual formula to give their viewers something new and creative.
During a recent interview Hardwell gave insight to what his next album could look like. “I’m experimenting with a lot of new, different sounds. I’m a bit sick of the same formula that’s going on in EDM right now so I’m just trying to change boundaries and look at what’s going on in the rest of the world. Even in the hip hop scene and the trance scene and try to combine as much as possible.” This producer is not the only one who feels this way. Highly respected producers such as Steve Angello, Porter Robinson and Avicii have tried a new path when it comes to the EDM world.
Steve Angello said “I think it’s really important for dance music today to become creative again, not just repeat yourself over and over again, like a lot of producers do.” Experimenting with different styles will have a unique result for each artist but that is the beauty of music. Just because one formula worked for a while doesn’t mean that an artist cannot discover a new way of creating music.
Perhaps 2014 will bring the promise of a new EDM style.
