What drives a dad to get into EDM? Is it some mid-life crisis shit? Are they fans of techno and house from back in the day? Do they really just like jamming to huge basslines and repetitive beats? Who knows. Whatever the case is, there’s definitely a demographic of dads who are digging EDM much more than the kids they’ve brought into this world. We have a feeling that for every dad who is imploring their kids to “turn off that robot music,” there are a few @edmdad-like parents out there ready to trade kandi and turn up. And while we’re hoping that these dads are on that Small Town Ecstasy shit, we always love seeing how kids react to their father’s love of EDM. To all of the fathers out there, DAD salutes you on this Father’s Day. Turn up as loud as you want, pop. You deserve it.
Bonus: Words from a few of our favorite DJs who are also fathers:
Fourcolorzack: “Dadlife is rad, it gives me someone to bounce demos off of and teach me the new technologies. Her favorite songs are DJ Assault – Ass & Titties and FCZ – Rude, I’m so proud! Also her instagram (@cutieandthebeast) is way more popular than mine :/“
DJ Ayers: “Today I picked up my 3-year-old from preschool and she told me “When you grow up you can be garbage! And I will be the garbage man and pick you up.” I’ll be dat.“
