Deadmau5 has always been known as an outspoken and insightful individual. People may not always like what Joel Zimmerman has to say but he generally has some interesting thoughts. In an interview with CBC News, Deadmau5 spoke about how electronic music has evolved out of being a subculture.
“I think we’re out of subculture-land and into it’s own culture-land right now…You could have now… a festival specifically for a subgenre of a subculture and it would have legs and sustainability to survive on its own, which is kind of cool.”
So now that electronic music has matured into a full on culture what kind of condition is it in now? “It’s at a fragile state right now,” Deadmau5 says, “How much room on either side of the culture does it have to go, to be creative?”
