English term or phrase: to cross over
Nochmals aus der gleichen Passage:
ABC is an electronic music concept that must establish itself as legitimate in the underground before it can grow and cross over.

Heißt das hier soviel wie "sich diversifizieren" im Sinne von "neue Wege gehen" etc.?

Dank im Voraus!

More context would help.... cross over kann auch "switch over" bedeuten... aber hier scheint es sich um die Entwicklung und Beliebheit zu handeln.

Habe gerade Fantutti's Antwort auf Deine andere Frage gesehen... Sie scheint der selben Meinung wie ich zu sein... Übertritt (cross over) in das allgemeine oder breite Publikum (mainstream)" = broadening of the popular appeal of the music...

den Schritt ins Mainstream / in die kommerzielle Schiene wagen


Explanation:
Wie Bahar schon meinte, bedeutet "cross over" hier der Schritt/Übergang in die kommerziellen Musik-Szene.
