SANTIGOLD: "DANCE HAS CREATED A DISMAL LANDSCAPE FOR MUSIC"

Santigold has said she wishes the dance music sound wasn't as popular as it is now, mainly because the dance tracks that are making it into the charts are formulaic, and we're "geting the exact same song every time."

She says: "Artists hire one of three producers, one of a couple songwriters, and you pretty much get the exact same song every time.”

“It’s created a dismal landscape for music, but it’s a sure bottom line for the record company,” she said. “It’s really become about the economy of the music industry, and it’s shaping the music that we’re getting in a really unfortunate way.”

“I really don’t like that music, that sort of Euro-dance music, Ibiza-style. I’ve never liked it, even when it was kind of new and underground.”

We should probably retract that invite to our Mixmag Ibiza holiday then.
