Kid, the only reason you are listening to that is because its caught in the mainstream. You cannot tell me that a song with 130 million views by Skrillex is underground and that no one knows about it - perhaps three years ago, but you are late for that wagon.

EDM has strengthened a lot in mainstream culture, but its true roots lie much deeper. Look up Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music and educate yourself a little more (the website does contain a little language and is outdated, but vastly useful).

When people use sarcasm, the only way to tell is through body langauge and tone, none of that can be done over the internet xD

Skrillex also has 5 million subs.


I think deadmau5 is underground though, right?

No splode, I'm not big on modern music, But the Indie gaming industry is looking bigger and bigger every day. In my opinion, mainstream gaming is ¾ dead already.

Honestly pronunciation is the least bit of importance.

Listen to some death metal. No mainstream allowed there.
I'll take Behemoth, Nile, Decapitated and Deicide over any of that any day.

Just because it has some mainstream attention doesn't make it bad though xD

Also, I don't care much about popularity; but I do care about the song itself. I dislike Skrillex because his bass is overdone to ridiculousness and it sounds too much like the noise a transformer makes in Micheal Bay's films (and thus ruined the perception of the genre to many X_X). On the other hand I like Pendulum because they usually make DnB and electronic music that is enjoyable to me. Though Knife Party is generally mediocre (I do like Centipede but that is about it) X_X

as long as you like deadmau5 I could give a rats ass.
