What about us 90's techno heads.. we've been hatin on all facets of the progressive sound for as long as I can remember.

It's not a THEN vs NOW thing.. more like.. I'd thought that would go away.. sort of thing.

What forum you living on "bro". There's more techno and house heads here than you probably realise. Or do you mean ****ty commercial edm lovers.


Anyways back to the Fairlight for those of us who don't ride around in mousemobiles with she males theres also the Bitley refill and kontact collection, which is excellent and I think is much better value than the app.

Hey I can't argue with a man that has 4000 + posts on a forum. Your tastes must be impeccable. I bow to your expertise.

Everybody hates deadmau5 because he came out of nowhere with a bunch of progressive blandy sounding club-bait and all of a sudden he's on Perez Hilton's blog with kat Von d. The man is not underground. Never was. And if he was, it wasn't for very long, because he just showed up one day and became the face of mainstream electronic music complete with the Grammy and celebrity girlfriend to boot. Any oppurtunity to prove that hes informed on the culture and history of the music he has failed at. Any other pop act falls under the same of scrutiny.

I'm not really bitter, I don't care. His music and scene etc. is 100% unrelated to what I do. Just one mans opinion, of course

Aside from the fact that you are completely wrong, who cares if he does or doesn't know the history? Is there an exam that he should have studied for? Who else is held to this academic, albeit irrelevant, standard? And what is so important about being underground? It's like if you make some strange drone sound that you can only appreciate if you are on heroin, you get all the respect in the world, but if you make it big, then you automatically suck? Did he really come out of no where? Really? According to him, he had been at it for about 10 years, before he exploded. Maybe you need to learn the history.

Yea, I'm not saying you need to take exams. Just show me you, you know, get it. Just a little bit. He really hasn't.

As for me being wrong, you'll notice the last sentence.

This. I love dance music, and I love to dance. I wouldn't really classify what DeadMau5 puts out as dance music though. It's better described as commercial club music made by a geeky white kid who can't dance for other geeky white kids who can't dance. People don't seriously dance to tracks like Professional Griefers, they get drunk and high and hop around in one place place like idiots. THIS Is dancing:






Not much DeadMau5 being played at these venues....

No I don't get it. What am I supposed to get? He makes music. You make music. People make music. Some people like it. Some people don't. He banged a playboy bunny, and you or I would have done the same thing. Who cares? Maybe the pedigree that he lacks is that he is from the Americas, which seems to be something that baffles the minds of many Europeans, despite the fact that that is where the majority of their sampled beats have come from.

I'm American and I can't stand Deadmau5.

He has awesome gear, but hasn't made anything that interesting with it.

aaaah, but I noticed you have a euro rack, unless that's referring to your chest?

Deadmau5 has a Eurorack modular synth. Doesn't make him European.

I have some Japanese synths doesn't make me Japanese.

It kind of seems like you were being serious, which leads me to believe that you did indeed feel a slight draft above your head.
