In a recent interview with Mixmag, Armin Van Buuren chatted about the current “shift” in production and how producers are focusing more on the drop than any other element.
“Everything’s become about the drop and the breakdown. I want to bring people on a journey rather than just bringing them the drops.”
He goes on to discuss his Armin Only tour, saying:
“It’s going back to my roots with trance, I’ve got a new director, a completely new set of singers, a new theme and a few special surprises.”
What do you think? Is commercial EDM all about the drop now? And how can we get out of this drop craze?
