This week, Grand Theft Auto V cruised to the $1 billion in sales mark, easily. And while Hudson Mohawke was unable to curate a radio station, just knowing how Rockstar has gotten down in the past should have had fans of dance music knowing that there would be some dance music in this installment of the GTA series… right? Wrong!

Maybe it’s our fault. We’ve been trying to show you guys that the term “EDM” isn’t just for commercial, LCD dance music. “Electronic dance music” comes in all shapes and sizes, from the quirky trap of Baauer to the festival-ready anthems of Avicii. Still, if some GTA playing, EDM loving gamers aren’t hearing that familiar “oontz,” they are automatically assuming that GTA V was lacking in dance music. It’s kind of funny.

Since the release of the game, we’ve been astonished that heads on Twitter really haven’t firmly grasped the notion that there’s dance music on the game… or that there isn’t a certain type of dance music on the game. For the record, Soulwax FM features a number of house tunes from Green Velvet, Tom Rowlands, Gesaffelstein, Jacques Lu Cont, and others, while Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM features bits from Swindle, Mala, and Cashmere Cat. Hell, FlyLo FM even has bits from DJ Rashad, Aphex Twin, Machinedrum, and Shadow Child… but we get it. You want Mixmash FM, with Laidback Luke spinning all of the fist-pumping bits… right? Maybe Grand Theft Auto VI: The Molly Incident will properly cater to your festival-charged dreams.

    ““Electronic dance music” comes in all shapes and sizes, from the quirky trap of Baauer to the festival-ready anthems of Avicii”

    If GTA had either of those types of EDM it would still be boring. There’s a lot more to EDM than boring trap and big room house, as much as you fat Americans would like to think otherwise.

      I love how your ignorance assures you that all someone knows is “boring trap and big room house.”

    MSXFM (and to a lesser extent MSX98) Is, and will always be, the best Radio Station in all of GTA’s History. Nothing but the best in Drum and Bass & Jungle from it’s time. Of course we may never see another MSX radio station since Moving Shadow is now defunct :( but I would really love to see another record label put a radio station in GTA. Maybe RAM?

      Ram FM on GTA would be so perfect.
