John Digweed is and has always been the man. In a world where underground dance culture has increasingly been at odds with the phenomenon known as “EDM”, it is refreshing and inspiring to see older artists such as Digweed sticking to their roots by promoting “proper” dance music. Like always, BPM Festival showcases the best talent in the underground scene. As Digweed puts it, “The people who come to BPM are not looking for big room EDM sounds. The fact that there are no EDM DJs means the music is consistent day and night, the entire time throughout the festival.” Given the rise of EDM mega-stars dominating the festival circuit over the years, hope remains for those seeking a gratifying experience when it comes to festival season, and BPM is a perfect way to start.
