In Episode 3 of the EDMist Podcast, J.T. talks with music critic Matt Bessey about the Jack Ü juggernaut, who rewrote the rules of electronic music (again); the breakout artists of the year, including Madeon, Lane 8, and Alex Klingle; and the best music and albums of 2015, including "City of Gold" by drum and bass group the Prototypes. We also tackle the question of what genres will blow up next year, and how EDM itself will change as the scene continues to expand and diversify. Oh, and we talk about Justin Bieber a surprising amount, because where ISN'T he now?
