    For those of you who have been living under a proverbial rock as of late, electronic dance music (E.D.M.) is experiencing a surge in popularity of shocking proportions. A far cry from its humble roots in basement parties and the underground rave scene, today E.D.M.’s all-pervasive influence is evident on our radios, our TV screens and just about everywhere in between. Music festivals like New York City’s Electric Zoo provide one of the most visible examples of E.D.M.’s modern renaissance — the days of intimate and secret raves have been replaced by massive 100,000 person events headlined by the very best the E.D.M. world has to offer. For its fourth annual affair, Electric Zoo pulled out all of the stops, filling its bill with the crème de la crème of techno, dubstep, trance and house. Although hugely successful industry stalwarts such as Tiesto, Guetta, and Above & Beyond may have drawn the biggest crowds of the weekend, the festival’s diverse and ambitious lineup ensured that great performances could be found at every hour of the day. From when gates opened at 11 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 31, until they closed at 11 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 2, Randall’s Island was transformed into a mass of undulating, neon bodies. Responsibility be damned, I was happy to be one of them.
