Me DJing the Chi Omega BBQ

My name is Kyle Meshna and I love electronic music. Rewind to Spring Break of 2009: A close friend and I are driving down the windy mountain road of Big Bear Mountain in southern California on the return from one of the most epic snowboard trips in So Cal history. We are stoked on life, having spent the weekend tearing down slopes of white powder, listening to the latest Tiesto track. I turn to my friend and say, “How sick would it be to be a DJ, commanding the attention of partiers and making them go nuts when they hear their favorite track.” She looks back and replies, “Well get off your ass and do it!” Now here I am, spending every minute of my precious free time combing the Internet for the latest tracks and annoying my college roommates by constantly practicing the art of DJing. While studying Rhetoric and Media Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, I have focused the bulk of my studies on Web 2.0 media, Entertainment, Marketing and Advertising. I have always had a love for music, spending much of my youth in friends basements learning our favorite guitar riffs and the like. Upon entering college I became exposed to a new genre of music that possessed a deep subculture of followers behind it that I never knew existed. This genre was Electronic Dance Music, or EDM. While many find the genre annoying and repetitive, I, like others ensnared in the culture surrounding EDM have grown to appreciate the subtleties and intricacies of a music without words, as it has become somewhat of a universally understood musical language that connects cultures across the globe though unified fist pumps and bass drops. I have started this website as an attempt to display the unity and culture behind Electronic Dance Music. I am particularly interested in the influences across cultures and the unity between these cultures that listen to and enjoy the genre. I will delve into the intricacies of the history, culture and future of EDM, as well as expose the world to great music.
