2015 was a big year for EDM, a moment that will go down in music history as a turning point for the genre as it made the transition from the underground fringe to full-blown mainstream popularity.
As EDM gained greater exposure in the mainstream world of music consumption, one of its most beloved practices, the art of remixing, saw a boost in popularity as well.
