Seriously loving lol at dudes in this thread who have listened to house for all of 6 months getting all haughty about mainstream house when the poo poo you guys listen to is barely a half-step below in terms of mainstream acceptance/disposability and barely a half-step above in terms of quality




Seriously loving lol at the dudes in this thread who are too loving pretentious to let anyone into their elitist club.

The bottom line is music is meant to be enjoyed, stop taking it, and yourself, too seriously.

Anyone in the NYC area should definitely check out the Busy P set tomorrow night at Hiro Ball Room.

I just got an email hinting at a big surprise guest appearance at the show tomorrow night... It mentioned "2 French Guys" but they didn't name who.

Off the top of my head the only 2 French Guys I know are Justice or Daft Punk. My money is on Justice being that they are on Ed Banger Records. But Daft Punk also did that surprise appearance at the last Phoenix show at MSG, so who knows...

Here is a link to the blogpost:

Any goons going to be there tomorrow night? let me know.

it doesnt necessarily say theyre a duo, could be any two ed banger artists to be fair. still, seeing busy p sebastiAn and mr. oizo would not be a waste of a night either.

Touche, I just assumed "duo" when I read it. But for the 5 dollar entry I would be excited to see anyone.

Plus, I wouldn't be able to forgive myself if I didn't show up and it turned out to be Justice or Daft Punk. I was offered tickets to the Phoenix show and I declined since I had already seen them twice, terrible decision.

You were right, in my sugar coated fantasyland I was hoping it would have been Daft Punk or Justice, but as it turns out it was loving A-Trak and Chromeo, so apparantly "french" and "french Canadian" are the same thing.

The show as great regardless, but I still felt ripped off at the end of the night.

Also, is anyone going to Webster Hall on Friday to see Crookers/Jack Beats?

Last time I was there for the Beetroots back in October the crowd was pretty lovely but Crookers were great the last time I saw them, so I am torn.

I am considering braving Webster one more time before I confirm that I am actually to old to set foot in that place.

This post is pretty much the embodiment of the kind of attitude that is ruining electronic dance music. The whole "DJ as rock star" thing is really gross to me. A DJ who "just stands behind the table and spins" is doing what a DJ is supposed to do because you aren't supposed to spend all night stood there staring at the DJ. It's a party not loving Eric Clapton or whatever.

I dont see anyone complaining about The Chemical Brothers or Daft Punk for having incredible stage shows. I have been into the scene for awhile now and while I do not like deadmau5 and I would never pay to see him because I think it is contrived horseshit, I can appreciate what he is doing for EDM.

He is popular because he is accessible, because its fun, and at the end of the day that is what music, and EDM are about. Some of these kids first introduction to it is through him because he has a stage presence and that stupid loving mau5head. But then some of them start listening to the "not so mainstream" stuff and fall in love with it and I don't think thats a problem.

The first rap I heard was poo poo on the radio, but had I not heard that I would never have gotten into Talib Kweli and Mos Def etc.

People need to start somewhere, and hes not a bad start.

Hate on him for his music being drivel, for him being a prick, but I don't see what a bunch of flashy lasers and entertaining the crowd has to do with ruining EDM... thats what EDM is about, entertainment.

That Beach Boutique thing with Fatboy and Buraka looks dope but the rest of the lineup is yawn city

It still 7 months away and there will likely be some more names added to the list.

Not to mention A-Trak and Laidback Luke are incredibly talented technical DJs, so I don't really agree with the "yawn city"

Also keep in mind that the crowd that Skrillex attracts is way too pale to go on a Caribbean cruise.

You must listen to the recordings of the sloshing noises produced as the sweat of 13 prepubescent Jamaican and Trinidadian children comingles with the blood of Sonny Moore and David Guetta, drawn by the teeth of Ghislain Poirer and Douster, and laps gently at the edges of the bucket Wesley Pence cradles in his arms as he ascends to his rightful throne at the top of the Blue Mountains where he will be tended to and cared for for all eternity by his right hand man, the ghost of Lee Scratch Perry.

That didn't answer my question but was so eloquently put that I cannot possibly rebut, but I have interviewed Sonny Moore and I think he's a total twat and the few times I've interacted with Guetta he's always just absolutely wreaked of talentless douche. I am however curious as to what Threatis considers "good" electronic music.

It's getting to the point where it seems like everyone here hates a DJ/Producer simply because they are popular? Afrojack sucks? Laidback Luke sucks? A-Trak does the same thing over and over? According to some of the posters in this thread I have only scratched the surface of "good" EDM and I am looking for some suggestions. This isn't an attack -- this is a request.

Threatis posted:

yeah basically this.

i dont hate the music at all, but the scene that has popped up around it has ruined alot of it for me. this poo poo belongs in the basement of some bar or in a persons back yard not on a loving cruise ship.

It's definitely a double-edged sword, I am relatively new to the scene -- 2 years ago I decided to go to Electric Zoo in NYC and I was completely hooked. Last year I noticed that the people I was encountering when I was going to shows was taking a serious turn for the worse, and I am really worried that Electric Zoo this year is going to be full of the worst type of fans.

As the scene gains popularity a lot of the guys I'm fans of are making boatloads of money, thats cool, it also means there are a lot more emerging acts that have huge amounts of a talent that wouldn't have existed a few years ago. The problem is that with all this popularity comes the sort of douchebaggery that ruins many of the events for me.

Ideally the bubble will burst, like it did in the 90s, and the people who are left attending shows are the ones who actually appreciate the music.

James Blake trashes dubstep's "frat-boy" aesthetic and the producers who are creating it:

killthenoise:
i love how people try to own a loving genre, this is 2012 you can stick your genre up your rear end. they don't exist anymore my man.

killthenoise:
everyone is entitled to their own opinion. but why do established artists feel its necessary to beat down other peoples art?

killthenoise:
anyway, love the dudes music, just kinda redic comment, maybe it was taken outta context who knows

then Dillon Francis got involved:

Caught Feed Me, Excision, Tommy Lee, and Deadmau5 at HoB last night. Great performances by all, but far and away the worst crowd I've ever seen at a show.

I had the displeasure of covering all 6 of Deadmau5's shows at Roseland Ballroom and the crowd was absolutely pathetic. Tons of tweens dressed in neon taking way too much MDMA, throwing up in garbage cans, passing out left and right. Every time I'm at a show like that (ID Festival comes to mind) I really think that EDM has reached its peak and it is going to come crashing down on itself in a great big ball of neon fire.

I felt like I was at Warped Tour circa 1999.

This is on Skrillex's new EP. And it shows that Skrillex could probably be a kick-rear end ElectroHouse artist if he stopped making his particular brand of dubstep.

I loving LOVE this track although I think much of what I enjoy is Wolfgang's contribution. He may be one of the dorkiest, most awkward guys I have ever met, but GOD drat is he an incredible electrohouse producer. His stuff is so sonically impressive.

As far as Skrillex goes The Bangarang EP actually has a few stand out tracks, 'Summit' is awesome (although I prefer Krewella's vocals when it was called 'Breathe') and 'Bangarang' is undeniably infectious.

gently caress him for what he did with The Doors tho, leave that legacy alone.

I had a whole argument against this but decided against it. Do you have suggestions for those genres? I tried googling Progressive house, and was incredibly bored by the first page. Electro house had some more interesting stuff, but was way too dub step. Is there no in between?

And I never want to hear the word trance again. My ex co-workers killed that genre for me.

You might like Arty's Essential Mix from February 11th - it's 2 hours long so there are some tracks I could live without but in terms of recent Essentials this is top notch. The mix goes from progressive, to electro, to trance, to dubstep and back again.

Arty and Mat Zo collaborated on "Mozart" and they have very similar styles.
