A recent viral video of deep house don Kerri Chandler preaching throughout his set about not playing”commercial shit” at Rex Club Paris last Sunday got us thinking again about the whole “keeping it real” kerfuffle and how much electronic dance music has evolved from its grungy warehouse days to its present Grammy friendly state.
