DJs Calvin Harris And Skrillex Claim Early Wins At 55th Annual Grammys | The Rise of EDM | Scoop.it
Skrillex and Calvin Harris are early winners at the 55th annual Grammy Awards.
Anthony Muskus's insight:

Dj's such as Calvin Harris, Skrillex and others have made their way in to the Grammys. This would have seemed almost impossible a couple years back when EDM was only an underground movement. Now that DJs have been receiving Grammy awards for their songs, people have been giving EDM the credit it deserves and are realizing that electronic dance music has become one of the worlds most popular genre.

House Music Has Become a Global Phenomenon

Anthony Muskus's insight:

Not only have DJs made it to the Grammys but now they've made it to Forbes. A couple years back DJs used to be paid a misery but in the past few years they have been making millions. They've also been playing in huge stadiums and massive festivals. With this been said, I believe the dj era is now.

From Small Clubs to Stadiums: The Rise of EDM in North America

From Small Clubs to Stadiums: The Rise of EDM in North America | The Rise of EDM | Scoop.it
As Smalltown DJs we began producing and releasing mash-ups, rap acapellas over top of well-known and unlikely instrumental versions. Mixing rap with dance music. Pressing them to vinyl.
