In the 2000’s, things changed some. Artists like Paul van Dyk, Fatboy Slim, and David Guetta impacted EDM. Kandi culture impacted EDM fashion. Kandi is a general term for bracelets, necklaces, and face masks made from chunky beads.

Bright colors and neon were still popular. Items with fur also emerged in the 2000’s. Below is a picture of 2000’s fashion with Kandi beads.
