What's the Difference Between the EDM Scene and the Beat Scene?
EDM: Ecstasy and vodka Red Bulls
The Beat Scene: Molly and weed
EDM: 130, relentlessly
The Beat Scene: 130, then 68, then 128, then 92, then 110, 130 again.
Train of thought while listening:
EDM: Loud, oh my God this is so loud, aggressive, really sweaty, build, drop, fist pump, DANCE!
Beat Scene: Loud, but then not as loud, menacing, but then kind of pretty, drop, bob head with my eyes closed, DANCE!
Festival of Choice
EDM: Electric Daisy Carnival
The Beat Scene: Decibel
