Toronto is quite the cosmopolitan city and it has provided a wealth of talent and culture for the overall electronic dance music scene. That’s changing though as, according to THUMP, the city has now allowed itself to become a pawn in the fight for control of the city’s dance music economy. The city banned electronic dance music concerts from a public locale popularly known as The Ex at the behest of Muzik nightclub owner Zlatko Starkovski. Though the story is much more convoluted then one simple man’s request for government assistance in their fight, that’s what it basically seems to boil down to. As one company starts to feel the pressures of competition, we’re going to see a bigger division between winners and losers. The only losers here though seem to be the EDM-loving citizens and tourists of Toronto – definitely not Rob Ford and company.
