In some ways Electronic Music is a genre that never seems to connect with the Rock Music crowd, and truth be told I was never into it either until somewhat recently. When I started shooting DJs I decided to check out their music and not sure why but after all these years I finally “Got it.” It satisfied a different musical craving for me. One that was purely for fun and enjoyment. It’s the most modern form of music in a way and when my go to musical genres lacks creativity, these beats and noises give me excitement. Although to convince a skeptic to truly understand the appeal of Electronic Music, you must take them to a festival. I had a chance to cover Electric Zoo: Wild Island this year that took over NYC’s Randall’s Island for 3 days over Labor Day Weekend, and I came out liking the scene even more. Maybe you’re stuck on the “They’re not artists, they don’t play instruments” thing or you just don’t understand this genre but it’s time to stop hating and at least admit via these photos that it looks like a hell of a good time!
