I am far from resonating with the "PLUR" vibes and the hipster movement that has swollen the EDM scene. I mean sure, them lyrics are about "setting yourself free" and "living the moment" however we can't neglect the fact that this is coming from die-hard money-counters -it's Tiesto and Krewella for Christ sakes! I am not trying to be negative on purpose, well I guess all genre explosions throughout the years had an industry backing them up whatsoever, it's just that things were carefree in the past....
