The EDMist is an Austin-based dance music blog covering music and artists across the EDM spectrum from the fan’s perspective.
I strongly believe in the power of music to connect people. “The EDMist” refers to the study and celebration of the music as a community, lifestyle, way of thinking, and religion. Anyone who counts themselves as part of the EDM community is an EDMist.
