Yesterday, the unthinkable happened: Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States. Regardless of where you stand politically, this is a shocking turn of events — one that will be analyzed, reanalyzed, and mulled over for years to come. As many struggle to wrap their heads around the repercussions of such a decision, the dance music world has responded accordingly.
Thus far, the dance world’s reaction has been a mixed bag of reflexive optimism and sheer horror. Many have responded with humor — attempting to lighten the situation — while others have opted (understandably) for unabashed anger. Skrillex, ever the pacifist, may have put it best, writing: “If you’re upset it’s probably best to stay off social media right now.”
We’ve compiled 10 reactions from prominent DJs across the dance music spectrum below:
The next four years are gonna just be a never ending loop of duck dynasty

If you’re upset it’s probably just best to stay off social media right now. It’s just as easy to be stressed as it is to add to it

Hilary looks long at the American night sky from the bathroom window, and gently, with a tear, begins to sing Bohemian Rhapsody to herself

It’s gonna be okay. It’s up to us to keep things positive and progressive. It’s up to the youth. Let’s stay strong and stay together.

Maybe America needs to bottom out for four years before it swears off of Republicans forever.
