Mat Zo has been exposing some of EDM's biggest secrets on his Twitter account this past week

Trance producer Mat Zo has spent this past week tweeting about his frustrations with the state of dance music and culture today. He expressed his disappointment with EDM, pretty much saying that electronic music used to be created and appreciated by nerds until the scene got appropriated by douches who are into partying, getting laid, and living a lavish lifestyle.

Here's some stuff he revealed (for those who don't want to read all of his tweets):
-Armin Van Buuren and Markus Schulz trap talented artists by luring them with shitty record deals
-a lot of the big name DJs will pay around $100,000 to secure their headlining slot on a festival lineup
-Skrillex, Above & Beyond, Eric Prydz, and Deadmau5 "are some of the only real people who headline festivals"
-Diplo started off by producing his own music, but now he largely uses ghost producers
-Calls Diplo out for posting a picture of his dick and argues with Deadmau5
