For you electro-house fans in New York, here's an event that can't be missed: http://www.terminal5nyc.com/event/3884

I'm seriously considering blowing a bunch of money to go up and see this. I dig Major Lazer's stuff ok, but Boys Noize and Proxy have been blowing my mind lately. 35 bucks doesn't seem tooo steep either.

Also I'm glad this thread has actually completed a page without someone taking a huge pretentious poo poo on Deadmau5.

I've recently started listening to a lot of french electronic music, such as Danger, Justice, Kavinsky and Data. I was wondering what genre they fall into? Also what other artists would I enjoy if I like their sound?

I really quite like Danger, especially 88:88 and 00:01 off his 09/16 2007 EP. I found Cross by Justice to be pretty great all round. Kavinsky was good, or rather the Sebastian remix of testarossa overdrive was, the rest was pretty boring.

"House Electro" to shoehorn it. To throw out some recommendations: Boys Noize, Proxy, The Toxic Avenger, LA Riots, Bloody Beetroots. Start with those, especially Boys Noize- it's a good intro into the genre after you hear Justice and bands like that.

I absolutely loved their debut album, but I'm not getting my hopes up for this. I read somewhere they consider themselves a rock band, not an electro act, with Kids/Electric Feel/Time to Pretend being more or less flukes.

I mean, if you've heard the rest of Oracular Spectacular it's not very electronic at all and goes towards more of the "psychedelic rock for hipsters" feel. It's not terrible, some of the songs are pretty cool, but I do wish they'd stick more with their electronic roots since their singles from the album really did deserve the hoopla they got if you ask me. You can find live versions of the songs that are presumably going to be on the new album, and yeah, they aren't bad but they aren't great either- it sounds like your average intelligence-conscious college group.

I'm shamelessly into Deadmau5, but he's about the only person from the "technobro" genre as I like to call it who I'm really into. I haven't heard much of Gartner's stuff, I'm just trying to see some of the "big names" I guess

And what the heck does "technobro" mean?

A "technobro" is/are the guy/guys you see at shows like Deadmau5 or Tiesto who won't be able to talk to you about anything other than MDMA or various DJs they've seen "x" amount of times. If you hear anyone say in a "bro" like voice "oh yah man, I've seen Benny Bennasi like seven or eight times in the past month" then you're probably hearing a technobro. They wear clothes that are skin-tight and generally show off their muscle and "swagger" as much as they possibly can. Seriously, go to a Deadmau5 or Tiesto show and they will be EVERYWHERE.

basically anyone who defines their favorite genre as "bangin' house", "bangin' trance", or "bangin' electro" is best avoided, as well as the dude who comes up to me at gigs and tries to school me on a 4 year old track like he's in the know. seriously, gently caress that dude.

Actual conversation I had when I saw Deadmau5:

- Yo dude, you know where I can get any rolls?
- no.
- mannn I wanna roll. I was gunna wait until Deadmau5 but this opening DJ is sick dude, you guys have some awesome locals
- actually this guy's been touring with him for the entire tour, I don't think he's from around here.
- oooh word *goes on to talk about how he went to Canada to see Armin Van Buren or Benny Bennasi or something.

So anyway, cut to like 30 minutes later and I hear a familiar voice on the smoking deck say "yeah brah, this opening DJ is sick, it's like my fourth time seeing him." Sure enough, it was example A of technobro.

We're talking about someone making a Justice-sounding track. Not exactly hard work. Do you listen to a lot of electronic music (I'm guessing not ure a deadmau5 fan)? This isn't that odd. Only in the rockstar world of bloghouse could this be seen as an afront to common decency. Just because you're a teenager with way too much invested in your idols doesn't mean the guy who made that track isn't putting his work in or deserves your ire.

Just because HypeM blew up because of it doesn't mean you have to be so angry. Its exactly the same as kids who put their band mp3s on Napster and said they were Blink 182 for more downloads. It doesn't mean you've got to denounce them and act like this is the ethical transgression of the decade. People got punked; it's very, VERY funny. Nothing more than that

Is it talented or is it funny? Make up your mind. Also, you listen to dubstep, you don't really have much of a place to talk about my music tastes.

I mean, you liked that track when you thought it was Justice, but now you're all mad.

You should be disappointed with yourself for not laughing because a bedroom producer pulled one over on you.

I still think it's a good track. Which is why I wish the guy would have just taken his own credit for it instead of claimed to be somebody else. I'm not some Justice-fag who is going to lose sleep over the matter, but whether it's techno or alternative or loving Miley Cyrus, I still believe in artistic integrity.

Ok, see, you're proving my point. "Newjack candy kid" "desert trance fan." I have no idea what those terms mean, nor do I give a flying gently caress. I like what I like. I like Deadmau5, I like bloghouse, I even like some dubstep! I don't give a gently caress how my attitude correlates to the type of music I listen to. Everyone else in this thread has their panties up in a bunch about their music tastes and their "attitudes" about those tastes and it's pathetic and goes against what music, for me at least, is about : having fun.

I like Deadmau5 but I like other things too.
While I don't consider myself an expert of electronica like others here might, I do know a good amount of artists. You can't really argue that mau5 isn't doing something right, because he's obviously geting fans and he DOES bring a lot of non electronic fans into the genre. That's where the problem is. He's bringing in a whole slew of unseasoned electronica listeners, and they simply don't know about the underground side of things. This thread should be used to take someone who listens to bloghouse and show (not tell) them all the stuff they're missing.


The moral of the story is - nobody knows all the cool songs out there. Some people might know more cool songs than others, and this thread is a place to share them so that we all learn more about music and expand our tastes to new things.

Tiesto just played here a month ago, and it was like kids I never knew who liked electronic jizzed their genitals over being one of 5000 people packed into a hall that fits 2500 max to dance while avoiding huge ed hardy chongos.

I'm taking my cuz to Coachella for his first music festival ever, and the first thing he told me was that he couldn't wait to see Tiesto and David Guetta. Considering that this dude listens to 2pac on repeat, it's easy to see how mainstreamed producers get a fierce and loyal following.

It's easy to say at 19 years old that electronic music nowadays revolves around rookie producers and bloghouse sensations.

I have been listening to electronic music ever since my older bro played me a classic acid house compilation in 92. Now I'm not saying that my taste is better than yours, but I will say that my experience (and those in this thread who have similar beginnings as mine into the genre) have taught me that latching onto every flash-in-the-pan producer or genre (HARD HOUSE ANYONE?) is a quick way to homogenize your personal taste.

look at Bassnectar. He started off playing hippie psytrance/breaks and now he's a dubstep dj? It's been 5 years since dubstep hit and honestly, people are gonna go back to regular dnb cuz if you've been to a bad dubstep show, it makes you beg for some original nuttah.

Question: If you hate Tiesto so much why go to one of his shows? Do you actually pay those steep ticket prices just so you can go to the shows and whine about how "inferior" they were over your precious forums?

I'm new to electronic music. I admit it! I started listening to the genre for among a few reasons being, hah, that I figured the genre had much more unity and much less scrambling for "cred" than other genres. I don't "latch" myself onto any producers, I discovered Deadmau5 myself and decided I like him. A lot of my friends like him too. That's good enough for me.

Not sure what you're saying about Bassnectar either, his stuff has been pretty consistently dubstep for five years or so now and it still delivers sooo
