Current state of EDM = shit and commercialized at the least the "mainstream" part of it

Afrojack is such a douche. Armin is a class act.

it's hard for me to say but deep down i still respect ferry and armin they def paid their dues and brought trance music up
with that being said now a day's i dont consider them as "dj's" they are pop-stars nothing more...commercial pop hits,planned out 2 hour predicatable dj sets,dont take people on a journey with their music etc etc

Confused

How the mighty have fallen...

Oh Armin, your shows used to cost $20.

What I find most interesting about the state of EDM is the fact that a good number of us have been able to witness, first hand, the amount of time it takes for a genre to transition from underground to completely mainstream. Having kicked off the ground in the 80's and 90's, it seems to have taken roughly 25 years for genre's like house and trance to become completely mainstream. I mean sh!t, half of all "hip-hop" artists sing and rap over trance and progressive house productions. Pop music is nearly the same, as well. Naturally, this had already been the case in Japan (and other countries) over 10 years ago. It'll be a shame when techno finally goes mainstream. Nevertheless, it's nice to have been a part of something so long before the rest of the country caught on.

Honestly, I don't think techno will ever go mainstream. Its just too hard for the average person to handle.

LOL, you think this would ever get the neon fags/ragers going?

You'd be pretty surprised how many of them will find techno boring as it just sounds like the intro of a trance song to them. I've also heard it be described as loungy haha. Then there are times, I've heard that it is too much yet they'll listen to Afrojack.

2006 Ravi vs. 2012 Ravi would be quite an interesting conversation

all it takes is one big techno dj to sell out or a guy like afrojack to experiment with it, make a dutch house song with some techno elements. him and beatport label it as "techno" then BOOM it will get out of hand and everyone will jump on the bandwagon just how it went with almost every trance dj to now trouse

i honestly dont think it will be as big as the pop sound mainstream edm is putting out, and i cant see a bunch of tourists from the midwest chilling at a blk market party, the word "techno" in america still has a dirty meaning behind it for the majority. me personally i like techno the way it is, every week in nyc there's a good party and majority of them are underground...lets keep it that way!!

theres nothing to really discuss

the subculture has done what it needed to do, it's gone from the american perspective euro trash to a highly coveted new age dance music. it was only a matter of time when catchy euro pop tunes met american chorus lines what we now call david guetta x kid cudi

like all things it'll perpetually grow and transform into the next hot thing.

in my honest opinion dubstep in its entirety reminds me of a scratched cd skipping, replaying, and speeding up all at once but its broken through and made its way

the best and honest thing is if you have a strong opinion about it, is to voice it as much as possible but don't expect any of it to change. you won't be able to control it but you are more then free to express yourself on the topic and often times you disagree by yourself but you agree in groups/hordes/communities.
