Remember back when people thought the "electric guitar" was an abomination of an instrument and a bastardization of music? Yeah, it's just called progression.


I don't care if music generated from wind on wooden flute, scratchings from a metal washboard, or electronic waves from a digital source. There's no freakin' rules about these things. Music is whatever fills you and makes you move.

Doubt people will be listening to it in the next 40 years...unlike bands from the 60's, 70's, 80's, etc.

Considering your user name, I can understand your opinion. That said, electronic music has been around since the very early 80's, so I doubt it's gonna die any time soon. Music tends to run in cycles... Genre A will be popular for a few years before giving way to Genre B. B will then give way to C, which will then eventually fall back to A. That's more or less been the pattern for basically the past thirty years.

Now, I listen to pretty much everything. My iPod has music ranging from (yes,) Deadmau5 to Taylor Swift to Five Finger Death Punch to The Ramones and even Phantom of the Opera. I appreciate all forms of music, regardless of genre. Sure, I like certain types more than others, but to bash a specific genre because it's "stupid," is inane.

That said, creating (good) electronica does take a lot of skills, arguably more skills than it does to pick up a Les Paul, memorize six progressive chords and suddenly call yourself a guitar player.

In the long run why does it even matter how Music is made? Music is music and everyone has a different point of view on what they consider Music to be. Like anything in this world it involves to what it is today and I honestly wouldnt be surprised if that is a large portion of what most people will be listening to 50 years from now.

From Blues to rock, Classical, Hip-Hop/rap to country and the electronic thats involving today things have always changed for the better and for the worst sometimes as well. What one thing everyone can agree on is it has been here as long as man kind and everyone gets moved by it. The only difference is everyone has a bit of different opinion on what kind of music moves them.

I bought my first rap tape in 1989 Public Enemy It takes a nation of millions to hold us back and my parents we not that happy listening to that quick talking the respected me enough to make my own choices which showed me a understanding of all music is good you just have to keep an open mind and give everything a chance. Shit I listen to hardcore Rap, Blues, Rock and a bit of Metal here and there and I even find a good electronic song here and there which makes me appreciate it that much more.

I don't know about you, but I don't listen to stuff even from the 80's, and I'm born in the 80's.
Stuff from the 90's give me a nostalgic feeling, but I don't go looking for it. Music and people continue to move as time goes imo.

Maybe I'll understand when I get older, but I don't understand how my parents (or parents in general) seem to stay stuck in music
of "their time". When it's 2030, I imagine myself listening to music from the 2030's, not stuck listening to music from 2012.

Kinda agree and don't agree... like the computer is not going to find the "right" tracks to play at the right time and ultimately the DJ is going to pick some insane drops.... for example, listen to W&W live set.... its fucking unreal their drops, beat matches... any trance guy knows what im talking about lol

I really do not like armins sets though..... compilation of different producers no sync

Dash Berlin and ATB are the ones that flow along quite nicely

the term EDM is so much better than idiots calling everything "techno"

there are so many new genres and mixed-genres nowadays that everything is classified in each of their own category. just look at beatport for example

check this guide out

http://techno.org/electronic-music-guide/

it shows you how dance music in general has evolved throughout the years from the 80s to now.

To think that EDM evolved from this:

To what it is now. Artists like Moroder and Kraftwerk are well before my time, but I can at the very least have a go at the roots of the genre. The key here is that for music to be considered "timeless" is a bit subjective since it's all on the ear of whoever's listening to the music. I'm thinking that earlier music carried over from decade to decade easily because of its similarities, but probably around the mid-80's was when more genres were discovered, and started rapid cycles of popular and shitty music (ie. boybands were hot in the mid-late 90's, died completely in the early 2000's and now I've noted that a couple new groups have started playing on the radio as of now).
