Published Jan 02, 2013If 2012 was the year of EDM, 2013 just might be the year where the insanely popular movement becomes passé. That's in great risk of happening thanks to this cringeworthy piece of news: the makers of Jersey Shore are reportedly creating an EDM reality show.
Mixmag notes that Doron Ofir Casting, the company behind Jersey Shore, plus a slew of other reality shows, has set up a website at EDMcasting.com. It encourages aspiring producers and DJs to submit their music for a chance to participate in what is described as a "reality/competition show." In other words, we're guessing this is a bit like a club-oriented version of Nashville Star, a talent show that was similarly cast by Doron Ofir.
The application form includes a questionnaire that asks things like "Break down your typical day from the moment you wake up till you call it a night," and, "BRAG! What are your best assets? Physical, material and social."
It's a long form, but you can check it out and, if you dare, apply here. It might be only open to U.S. residents since it asks for state and zip code without offering other options, but there's nothing that explicitly says that applicants must be American.
EDM and Jersey Shore make quite a natural fit; after all, Jersey Shore's Pauly D has gone on to become one of the world's top-earning DJs.
