Jesus. The 90s called. They want their electronica back. Oh, wait, it never left, because the EDM of today is almost exactly the same style of music made for exactly the same age group. Big beats, big acid sounds, shameless sampling, popstar cameos, subtle as a sledgehammer, epic breakdowns, builds and drops. Just because it goes WUB and the kids wear fluoro doesn't make it any lower common denominator than big beat already was. Let them have their fun.wish i could have hit this, screw you flu!
i would love to see a fest that has orb, orbital, chemical brothers, crystal method, infusion and the prodigy
instead of aoki, guetta and whatever the other cheese of the moment is
nobody will be listening to deadmaus or skrillex or aoki 3 yrs from now let alone 10 years from now
sure they will, same way ppl think back to the good old days of milli vanilliYes they will.
I think you underestimate just how popular some of the new generation of artists are. Deadmau5 alone pulled over 20,000 people to a show in Toronto, as did Swedish House Mafia. Chemical Brothers, Underworld, Prodigy, Daft Punk, Orbital, etc.., have never done anywhere close to that, even in their prime.
The same kids that listen to them now will get old like like you are now and reminisce about them they way the older generation does about The Orb, Underworld, Chemical Brothers etc.., and will go see them at least for the nostalgia factor.
lol I just noticed this too! I was like, "waaait a second I didn't start a thread!" Never before have I witnessed such a literal and absolute "thread hijack" (congrats Alison, it worked ).way to fuck up an event review.
no wonder no one does them anymore.
