FUNKAGENDA: "SELLING OUT? YEAH MATE... CLUBS, STADIUMS & FESTIVALS"...
UK house and tech-house producer Funkagenda has caused some stir in the dance music world this week, by launching an array of complaints in defence of a certain French superstar DJ.
In the comments on his blog, the West Midlands-raised producer defended the cause of dance music crossover and the rise of ‘EDM’ music into the mainstream charts and global market, in a rant that claimed the subject of defense was accused of bastardizing dance music by a young fan of modern electronic music.
In a lengthy rant, Funkagenda – known as Adam Walder to his mother - spouted: “I could play my favorite seminal Sasha set, recorded at Privilege in 2002, to one of these new wave of 'dance music' fans and they would look at me like I was just playing them brown noise. "Where are the vocals? How do you dance to it? But play one of monsieur's tracks to them + they will bounce around the room like a spastic woodpecker on Adderall.”
