The Dance Music Community Reacts To Donald Trump's Inauguration

Following a particularly contentious election cycle that saw Donald Trump winning the electoral vote last November, the real estate mogul turned Republican candidate was sworn in today as the 45th President of the United States.

With Barack Obama having left the white house to make way for the incoming Trump administration, many notable figures from the dance music community have taken to social media in reaction to today's inauguration ceremony.

A number of producers and DJs from across the dance music spectrum have voiced their opinions on a Donald Trump presidency, with many seizing the opportunity to lighten the moment with some much needed humor.

While many braved the inevitable backlash from the POTUS' Twitter account with jokes, others simply expressed their disbelief over the surreal nature of a businessman turned game show host holding the office of President.

A number of others, such as Alison Wonderland and Diplo's Mad Decent imprint, took the time to reflect positively on Obama's eight years in office.

thank you. from the bottom of my heart.
