Steve Angello’s Advice to EDM Producers: “Get Loose”

While his interview with MTV was to mainly be about his forthcoming solo debut album, Wild Youth, Steve Angello spoke about the idea of being “loose” with your ideas. “I think it’s really important for dance music today to become creative again, rethink and not just repeat yourself over and over again, like a lot of producers do.” As we move into EDM becoming more popular (and lucrative) seemingly every week, there will be a lot of room for similar-sounding producers, so we hope that the next crop of beatmakers will try to twist more original ideas and themes.

Steve says the album should be done in a few weeks, and mentions that he has a lot of “cool collaborators” and live instrumentation on the project. No release date has been given for Wild Youth yet, but we imagine it could be sometime before the end of 2013 (that’s a wide enough net to cast, right?).
