Welcome! My name is Chanel. I started this blog for a class I took at UC San Diego, but the topic was my choice; to observe the EDM scene in hopes to deepen my understanding of the music and the lifestyle.

I have been surrounded by EDM all my life but I started listening to it on my own about two years ago. Since then, I have been to many shows and raves in the Southern California region and I have become familiar with the many subgenres of EDM. I keep updated of the latest news from reading several blogs, constant research, and networking with many other EDM fans.

Although this is a fairly new interest of mine, I hope to share what I have learned and my experiences with you, a person who may be interested in this music and lifestyle.
