Do you ever say or hear that EDM artists have sold out? While we do love artist's freewill and the ability that any DJ can reinvent themselves by exploring new sounds, it is very surprising to see how much dance music has changed over the past 5 years. Today, we know Zedd for his huge dance pop hits with releases from “Stay,” “Get Low,” and “Clarity,” but who can forget the days of “Shave It” and his remix of “Breakn' A Sweat?”
In the videos below, the Facebook page titled Revealed Family has outlined just how much dance music artists have changed in the past 5 years. In part 1, Revealed Family outlines the stark differences in Nicky Romero, Zedd, Afrojack, R3hab, Julian Calor, Thomas Newson, Vicetone, Alesso, The Chainsmokers, and Avicii's style has changed. In a more recent video, Revealed Family has uploaded part 2 which focuses on artists such as Deorro (TONIC!), Martin Garrix, Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Lazy Rich, DallasK, FTampa, Skrillex, Tiesto, Krewella, and Dubvision.
