Beyond EDM refers to our desire to cover and promote underground electronic dance music as we have done for over 25 years. We go beyond the mainstream EDM that has been co-opted and corrupted by pop music and billionaire investment corporations. There are plenty of corporately funded EDM blogs out there covering your 3 min “EDM song” or you rapping over a couple of synth loops. We’re just a few folks living in the past and this is more of a legacy site than an active EDM blog.
So to spell it out we don’t cover trap, dutch electro, big room or pop EDM. We also don’t cover rap, hip hop, folk, rock, indie, R&B or festivals that involve those genres although we enjoy listening to some of them. We go ‘BEYOND EDM’ into the underground styles of house music, techno music, minimal techno, hardcore, gabber, ambient and jungle. People like what they like, and if mainstream EDM music gives you pleasure then by all means play it, listen to it, dance to it, buy it, make it, remix it, blog it, go see it live and enjoy what you do.
DJ Mixes, song releases and EDM events submissions should first be made to the Music Forum section of our website, and unless they’re horrifically awful Top 40 mashups of rap music and EDM, we will feature them on our EDM Blog that is consistently ranked well on Google for “EDM blog” and “EDM blogs”.
We will not simply post a link to your Beatport page for stuff you are trying to sell unless you are cutting us in on the deal (ie, lemme hold a dolla big man for all you old school ATL ravers).
You may post them in our EDM forum for free, or buy ad space if you wish to have your release featured on our site ;)
