House music has become hugely popular in the United States over the last couple of years. It can now be heard in the clubs, on the radio and even well known artists are changing their sound to incorporate the popular beat. (Think Black Eyed Peas) Today, house music is the main star at festivals such as the Burning Man, Electric Daisy Carnival, Together As One, and the Winter Music Conference in Miami. I’m stoked to highlight some of those events to you throughout 2011.
So what’s in store for house in this new year? Well more opportunities are arising around the world for DJs to spin as more house music friendly dance clubs open up in major cities. Musical entertainment no longer consists of having artists perform and belch out a few songs on stage. People’s preferences are changing and they want to bounce, jam and groove to the beats. We’ll most likely see more collaborations between well-known DJs and popular hip-hop and pop artists. The music industry is changing, and change is always exciting in my book. A new music era begins as house is here to stay.
