no where near dead!!
the club circuit is crap here, and so is the party circuit (because of over regulation and over commercialisation the idiots are in charge still in my country) but like everything that will change..... there's a LOT of good music out there right now. (ironically also from Holland)
but you have to look for it. it's not on MTV MTV2 or radio.

oh and I rarely bother but can't help myself giving a shout out on this sunny thursdaymorning: a heartfelt "fukk you" to all the haters fuuck you probably have no sense of rhythm and a very boring life (it's ok, just don't bother us )

some new stuff I like to hopefully brighten up this trainwreck of a thread LOL
(disclaimer: dance music is very broad so... YMMV)






in perspective

Why is it nowadays that when anyone disagrees with your asinine opinions and calls you on your BS, that make them a "hater"? WIMPS! why do you think the words "dance music is dead" are in the GOOD NEWS CHANNEL in the first place?

No sense of rhythm, that's a good one, I've been playing drums - you know, REAL drums, the kind that require skill - and percussion for over 30 years, and not just your 4-on-the-floor pap but funk, Latin and other ethnic rhythms, African polyrhythm, you wimpasaurus rex, you cowardly little antimusical crap-loving pantywaist. Kiss my ass, fool!

your ass? there's a funky smell and it ain't the good kind of funk
now if you'd stop playing funky drummer, trying to keep up with your metronome you'd maybe notice the world's moved on and it doesn't matter with what kind of tool you made it (orrrrr didn't )

you snob

there's good music and bad and that's it
and you know it

But some people like that minimal, repetitive groove. The way your mind locks into that is the whole point, it's hypnotizing.

The thing I don't like about classical music is how it changes so often. I'm always like, why can't they just loop the best bit for 6 minutes, I'd much rather listen to that than the ADHD-inducing, 50 instruments at once, things changing every 20 seconds chaos that classical music is (to my ears).

Each to his own I guess.

I wouldn't necessarily say "saved all your asses" but I would say that a LOT of production techniques that are now considered standard practice originated with dance music and hip hop production. No argument there.

This. It always amazes me how some rocker is dissing electronic music and then proceeds to listen some rock that's snapped to grid, sample replaced drums, autotuned, everything constructed by cutting and pasting bits from dozens of takes. Ie. made exactly the same way electronic music is, every bit as "artificial" as techno. Do the kids really think MTV-rock is made by setting up a band in a room, placing a few mics, pressing record, letting the band play and having a complete tune in 3 minutes? That's the attitude I often get, when people find out I listen to and create electronic music. It ain't the 50's anymore, and if it were, the band in the cover probably didn't play the instruments on the record.

The quote you have in your post isn't from me for one thing. i HATE mtv and i don't listen to (most)mainstream music.For the person that said that dance music made a bigger impact than rock music is just plan stupid.Lets get real.I LOVE all kinds of music but if someone didn't decide to put a knife to a speaker there wouldn't have been distortion on guitar.Everything has it's roots.Jazz lead to blues and blues lead to rock'n'roll and everything else followed.Also i HATE snap to grid music so... you knowfuuck

dance music will never die simply because people like to dance. Early man was dancing to repetitive beats created with rocks, animal skins and log drums long before any 'sapien pulled out a cello. Now you can work with samples of rocks, log drums and animal skins. Having said that, different strokes for different folks - you like to dance to grateful dead jams, she likes dancing to house, he likes hip-hop and that over there likes happy hardcore... and let's not forget the dude in the mosh pit who inflicts random violence on his nearest fellow mosher in the name of dance . Repetitive beats are what defines dance music - regardless of the source instruments. Try dancing to anything that doesn't use predictable repetitive beats - not gonna work too well unless you're dancing to your own beat (or a devotee of ballet) in which case you probably don't need the music anyway...

I agree for the most part..I have been playing "Real" drums for 33 years, guitar for 20 and I just do not like the button pusher music, but thats just me, I don't expect other people to agree with me..I guess what was considered Talent years ago is not the same today!

I'm going to stick up for dance music! Well, a little of it anyway. The genre I can get into is Chicago House (some call it classic), Deep House, ambient house, and a tough of acid jazz (yeah, that's not exactly dance music, I know). Trance can die a quick death IMO.

I will put away the jazz and prog and occasionally listen to The Orb, Blue Six, Miguel Migs, and some nice smooth downtempo, just to calm the nerves. The Euro cheese, especially Italian-style disco with all those vocoders and J-pop, make me want to puke at times.

Well I like jazz, rock, blues, soul, funk, punk, hip, hop, metal, many forms of electronic music. Just not much into classical music. Could be partly explained by me being a working class kid, classical music always seemed like something rich people do while sitting down and politely applauding in appropriate places, while us young 'uns were busy dancing our asses off in an underground rave or a punk party in an abandoned house or listening to some jazz or funk band in a sweatty club. Classical music just doesn't excite me, an orchestra is basically just a cover band doing some upper class music composed for the royalty 300 years ago, it's not relevant to me, it doesn't move me emotionally, it doesn't mean anything to me, I don't understand it.

It's not about it being old, I love old paintings (particularly the french impressionists) and I almost never read books or poems written after WW2. Classical music just doesn't move anything inside me.
