Is music suffering because of drugs?

Dance music is no longer a music that touches the head and heart as well as the feet, as it did with Northern Soul. Instead, it has become a soul-less metronome for the E generation to mark time to.

Everything Ive read about the the Northern Soul scene (i.e., The Wigan Casino) claims the clubs were full of amphetamines.

I would have to agree with this quote to some extent. I cant even bring newbies to big events cause I know they'll be acosted by Etards and dealers...

the person who wrote this article was far to biased to be a proper judge of the depth of the music.

he's lumped this so called "dance" ( :rolleyes: ) music into one specific form, house, and even then only to one aspect of it.

he shows really no intelligence but just knowledge of a few facts about drugs and music. he may have a point with hip hop being very low quality right now but thats just the bling bling american-cool hip hop. and blaming that solely on weed is rediculous. sex, money, power, race issues, etc. all combined into making bling bling hip hop culture.

anyways, the article isnt that great.

know your enemy well.
this guy knows jack squat about those genre's he attempted to discredit as artistic.

its like when, for example, junglists go on boards calling trance shit for being fruity, or break fans calling progressive shit for being boring or what not. thats an opinion. a very poorl based one at that.
in order to make a well rooted opinion on a music genre one must first listen to it, study it, and it helps to have been a one time fan of the genre who has now realized how bad it is now and even was then.

plato: in the U.K and Europe "dance" is not a dirty word like it seems to be to you. Journalists and artist's alike call this music "dance". Also, look around for more peices written by the author before you dismiss him, cuz youre wrong.

i realize the use of the word on their side of the world.
doesnt mean i have to like it.

as for the author, i still havent found any proof he has a deeper knowledge for the music he attempts to fully discredit.

all ive gathered is he's really bitter towards the youth cultures, no matter which one. with some he has a point, but he doesn seem to hint at any currewnt youth culture that has potential for being anything more than mindless, nor does he give the younger generations any credit, basically labling them all as eMpTy-Vee zombies ready to consume anything thats spoon fed to them.

if you have anything to prove otherwise then i emplore you to post it.
