‘EDM’ hey? So does that mean that I can’t call it house? Daft Punk took house music to heights that seemed to suppress what followed. But then, 10 years later, those pesky statesiders get a taste for open-air rave. Suddenly, Deadmau5, David Guetta and Swedish House Mafia are playing to fields. Who would have thunk it? A couple of months or so back, such deep questions were crossing my mind when I got a call about a local event involving DJ Joel ‘deadmau5’ Zimmerman. On my commute home along Union Street (south side of the Thames), a stage was being built for an impromptu party. I couldn’t make it, but the coverage shows he opened the event with ‘Some Chords’. It’s from his album 4×4=12, it’s a house anthem, but is it a higher state of consciousness?
