Yes, one of the most trustworthy sites when it comes to electronic music ("quality" house and techno, not EDM stuff). Was really surprised to see them post about Roskilde on Facebook though, but I guess they have some insider information.

If EDM is taken to mean any electronic dance music, then sure, all of these names are that, i.e. beat-oriented music that will probably get you dancing. 8-)

What I meant was the newer understanding of the term as a more specific style, which is the music that dominates festivals like Tomorrowland. Genres like dubstep, electro/progessive house etc.

I certainly wouldn't put the House of Dad release in that last category. Anyways, give it a listen if you haven't already! :)

The first 5 tracks or so on his Spotify play list just sounded like any EDC, Ultra, Tomorrowland mainstage act but maybe I have to give it a listen.
