Kaskade Responds to L.A. Times' Slam on EDM Culture

If you haven't heard by now, the L.A. Times recently posted an article which slammed EDM culture, hinting that it's just a haven for drugs and death.  Yeah, and it pretty much singles out Pasquale Rotella (founder of Electric Daisy Carnival) and Reza Germani (founder of Monster Massive)

Earlier, Insomniac head Pasquale Rotella responded, announcing a Call to Action, encouraging people to voice their opinions against the L.A. Times article.

And as of recently, Kaskade took to Tumblr today calling the article "irrelevant and outdated."
"The responsibility to address substance abuse and addiction cannot come down to people who are event promoters. Not only is it unrealistic to expect them to tackle such a huge problem, it’s an enormous insult to those who have made it their life’s work to do so. Clearly, if the US Government hasn’t come up with the magic bullet to quell the problem of drugs in this country, it is not reasonable to expect an event promoter to pull this kind of trick out of his hat either."
You should read the L.A Times article first... then check out Kaskade's full rebuttal, then do as Rotella wants... voice your opinion against the L.A. Times... because

Yes, this does directly effect your culture.
