A US TV producer is reportedly looking to put together the first ever EDM (Electronic Dance Music) reality TV series.

Doron Ofir, whose previous credits include work on "Jersey Shore" and "A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila" launched a casting website titled EDM Casting. Browsing the website, users hear a voiceover asking "Are you the next superstar DJ?" It adds: "The first electronic dance music reality TV show is coming. All producer/ DJs are invited. Start honing your skills."

Further down the webpage is a form to fill in which includes questions such as, "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".

Ofir will, no doubt, be hoping to find the next Skrillex or Deadmau5 during the filming of the reality show. Skrillex recently gave Richard Branson a lesson in DJing while Deadmau5 said he would be happy to never make electronic music again, saying "burn it all down, I don't care" during an online rant.

Thanks for the report to NME.com.

    I'm gonna create my own version but with IDM instead! "Could you be the next Aphex Twin and scare your neighbours with your music that sounds like computer orgasms?"

    Why the hell is UG focusing on this shit? I thought this was a music website, not a gossip website.
    An insult to talented artists such as Burial and Aphex Twin who bring so much to the EDM scene. Though at least it's not "Looking for the next Guitar Superstar!" hosted by Lil' Wayne and Taylor Swift, I suppose.
    I'm an electrical engineer, and it doesn't take one to know that all DJ'ing consists of is BASIC computer programming and MINOR manipulation of rhythmic patterns. I would argue that it doesn't qualify as a form of music..it qualifies as a form of music manipulation. Since this is a MUSIC website, this article is irrelevant.
    someone just needs to off this idiot, Doron Ofir, already before another "shore" travesty is born...
