3 “Huh?” Moments in EDM Last Week

A band temporarily broke up just to help sell-out Madison Square Garden, a hacker made their way through a few EDM artists’ social media accounts, and we have more information and statistics on the evolution of ecstasy in the 21st century. Huh?

Finding the proper response to much of the news finding its way into our social media feeds is becoming a tougher task every day. Nothing is surprising, and there’s always more to the story. Leaving us with one reply: “huh?”.

Last week, a hacker known as “Quinn” gained access to the Soundcloud and Twitter accounts of Carnage, Slushii, and Ookay. James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem shared some troubling info regarding the band’s initial break in 2011, and the results of testing more than 25,000 ecstasy pills from around the world are in.

The reason “huh?”, in its various forms, is such a quality reply is simple. The word is as versatile as a response gets, and while it may require some explanation, “huh?” is sometimes the only way to react to the news of today. Defined by Merriam-Webster as an interjection that’s “used to express surprise, disbelief, or confusion, or as an inquiry inviting affirmative reply”, “huh” or “huh?” can mean a lot of different things. 

Despite some of the follies of human evolution (see: staring at a solar eclipse), the development and growth of “huh” is something we should embrace. To be the change we want to see in the world, here are a few EDM stories last week that made us go “huh?”.
