QUESTION: Who are your favorite DJ's and what genre of electronic music are they?

41 comments

  1. None. DJ's aren't musicians and electronic music != music.

    Listen to something worthwhile

    3. +1 to 1a, 1b.
      Seriously though, who are you to judge? I like a wide variety of genres though, including electronic music. But many musicians nowadays use electronic sounds in their songs. So, where do you draw the line?

    4. Thank you. I am sorry but EDM and dubstep isnt real music. It may be sounds that sound cool but they require NO TALENT

    5. I'm with 1a here. I may like all music but "cumwads" like you fucking annoy me with one music is better than another. Fuck off with your opinions; it was never asked for. Make an electronic original song and post it here. Since it requires no talent it shouldn't be hard for you 1d

    6. As if Florence + the Machine is any better. Your misplaced sense of elitism makes me laugh.

    7. It takes talent to be so talentless to make EDM. I can't believe our generation is going to grow up and become old listening to bs like this.

  6. I am a huge, huge fan of AvB's work. Trance and progressive 5eva

    Also, OP, for clarification, you probably should have specified producer and not DJ. The former often implies the latter but the converse isn't true.

  11. Why does a DJ have to make electronic music?

    ReplyDelete

    1. See 9. Majority of EDM producers are also DJs and OP mixed up the two.

    2. Money DJing > money producing

  13. Really makes me sad that our generation listens to dubstep and "music" which requires little talent to make :(

    1. Why does it make you sad? I'm not a dubstep fan but I LOVE people who listen to dubstep. This just means less people listen to the music I like! Means I can see Hollerado and Franz Ferdinand for 30 bucks :)

    2. Make a song then. It doesn't take talent so it should be easy for you

    3. I hate people like you that have to have a word in whose music is better. Not that I like electronic music but cunts like you like to put down what other people like and it's annoying. Get over yourself and keep your comments to your self you ass clown

  14. So much ignorance in this thread

  15. Why the heck do you people think electronic music takes no talent to make? It is not a matter of mixing some preexisting tracks in garage band, despite what you think your experience is like from your high school computers class...

    Producing electronic music is hard. The real stuff has far many more tracks than the average guitar-bass-drums-vocals rock band. Artists actually spend time with synthesizers trying to produce the exact sounds they need for the piece. Most trance pieces have at least two primary melodies, it's not just a melody-countermelody thing. And there are plenty of tracks that still require recording real instruments...

    A lot of the electronic music being produced today is honestly the closest thing we have to maunstream orchestral composition, given the complexity of the tracks many of these artists are pushing out.

    I've worked with recording other music (singing, guitar, etc.) The difficulty of playing the instrument has basically no bearing on the quality of music. Some of the greatest instrumentalists in the world have never and could never write a piece of music. These are separate things.
