Like it or not, Avicii is running things right now. He's killing it on Billboard, with his True making actual history for EDM acts. He's a beast when it comes to marketing himself, aligning with a number of brands and further lining his pockets. He makes the kind of EDM that people who had EDM cringe at, and if you're new to dance music and detest Avicii's sound, you might end up writing off an entire scene without doing much digging. While DAD respects Avicii's work, and hold a number of his productions in high regard, we definitely understand if you dislike his material. In light of that, we felt the need to give you, the Avicii-hating consumer, some viable options in terms of the electro house/EDM sound. Some are names you should be familiar with, others are ones you might need to get to know. Don't abandon the EDM scene just because you don't rock with Avicii - try some of these options out!
