L.A. Music Culture
Nowadays the L.A. indie music scene reflects the diverse culture of the area neighborhoods like Los Feliz, Silverlake, Hollywood, Koreatown, and Echo Park. Its fitting that a genre like “rap-rock” would emerge as a music sub-genre out of such a mix of music cultures. However, the list of LA music sub-genres is long and varied.
Furthermore, the heavy rave scene landed here, with EDM sounds from- house music, dubstep and drum and bass, Jungle and Downtempo. At one point The Electric Daisy Carnival EDM festival had an attendance of over 185,000, and it’s now become the largest dance music festival in North America. This huge festival, and others like it here make Los Angeles the rave capital of North America.
Finally, as hip-hop is concerned, LA has long been an epicenter for the culture. Los Angeles birthed the sounds of Dr. Dre, N.W.A, Ice Cube, Tupac Shakur, The Game, Kendrick Lamar, Tyga, DJ Mustard, YG, Ty Dolla Sign and many more.
