“It’s been a long 7 years,” writes deadmau5 on an Instagram post. Honestly, we couldn’t agree more.

The difference in electronic music between 2009 and now is almost too great to imagine – yet, at its core, the music does remain the same. We still use synthesizers and drums, modulations and distortions, reverb and limiters; the technology now is just a bit more advanced.

Many powerful, robust and durable pillars of dance music have shown their heads in the past 7 years. A-Trak created Fool’s Good, Skrillex created OWSLA, Tiësto created Musical Freedom, and deadmau5 created mau5trap.
