i've been listening to a lot 70's/berlin era iggy, eno, bowie lately as well as some of the deeper dnb stuff that guys like alix perez and amit used to put out. new electronic music is great from a production / technical standpoint, but it all has a lifespan of 5 minutes. I also can't stand the fact that most of these producers nowadays are coming from heavy metal backgrounds and incorporating their staind/creed type vocals into trance/dubstep. awful stuff and its only getting bigger by encouraging their tween fanbase to pollute the scene. and now everyone and their mom is making trap house trap music which is basically 70bpm hip hop made by nerdy dubstep producers.

very depressing interview on the current state of music in america. essentially non-electronic music lovers creating their ideal electronic scene. and I hate that they think edm is new.. i remember tower records used to call their electronica section edm in the mid 90's.

I'm not denying that there's not a lot of garbage, and a lot of the guys that migrated from the screamo crowd are good examples of that, but there's a lot of gold hidden in there.  The Twelves, Siriusmo, Villains for awhile a couple years ago, Crookers at their best ... there's a lot of songs hidden among the 5-minute-wonders that I'll listen to forever.

 

There's some genius trap btw, but just like anything else that blows up out of nowhere there's a backlash of people who hate it.

 

Also why the hell does everyone on this forum think that Skrillex exemplifies the modern electronic scene?

Or perhaps even a "General -> Entertainment and Culture -> Music Thread"

I think we just need a Paul Simon Appreciation thread, am I right?

Truly this sale is the greatest thing to happen to home decor since Urban Outfitters.

I've posted in the Entertainent music thread, but it just seems full of Dad Rock / Metal / Hippie / Hessian crap. I support a sub-forum specific music thread, so long as there is some reasonable link to sw&d.

I read that article yesterday. It's pretty depressing bit it's not unexpected. 

However, I don't think the fact that EDM has become mainstream has made a real impact on the scene, at least not for those who are "in-the-know".

 

The people who've been into the deeper/underground stuff don't like this new sound and the bro's who listen to Skrillex and Aviicii would never go a true techno club (for instance).

 

I def don't view the biggest mainstream house producers as EDM artists. They're pop music for me. The whole cool, artsy music blog thing and micro-genres are horrifying though. A good example is the UK Bass scene which got so infested with 14 year old nerds trying their luck at producing that the established and respected artists, those who created the sound and built the scene, even felt a need to distance themselves from it. 

 

As far as talking about a golden age in terms of the actual music - I don't know. Nostalgia is so big in EDM that in some cases you can't really tell if a record was made in 1992 or 2012.

People keep on trying to convince me Rush rules in that music thread.
