All of this. ^
Also, I thought it was a pretty funny/good read. I've never been a huge fan of "house" but I do enjoy some other genres in the electronic music category. My only complaint is his diss on live instruments. I've seen several electronic acts that utilize live instruments like Gramatik (guitar), Break Science (drums and synths), Griz (sax), and RJD2 (playing with an entire band, drums, bass, guitar, keyboard). IMO these are some of the best live electronic shows I've ever seen.
And maybe this is where I'm wrong, if the author is referencing purely and only house music then I have litte to no knowledge of the genre. A rave in my opinion is any kind "dance music" show though, so, to each their own.
Just to reiterate Arab1an's point, kids who are in the know understand that a lot of this EDM shit in the US is ridden with fratastic whorehouse bedazzled jizz kids.
