LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy on EDM: ‘It Makes Me Want to Vomit’

By Scott T. Sterling

After crushing indie rock aesthetics with the deepest roots of dance music to fuel his label, DFA, and launch his band LCD Soundsystem into a dance act capable of packing Madison Square Garden, James Murphy does not approach the sounds of the dance floor lightly.

During a recent interview with MusicWeek, Murphy let it be known in no uncertain terms that the current tide of EDM sweeping America frankly sucks.

“What I see in the commercial side of it I find repellent. It makes me want to vomit,” he said. “I just don’t like it, it’s not for me but it’s also not designed for me. I’m old and it’s very maximalist and I’m not a maximalist guy. I’m sure there’s great stuff happening but it’s just not reaching me and it probably shouldn’t. I’m not excited about new stuff that much.”
