For real electronic music, I think some of you kids need to listen to stuff from OMD and Depeche Mode.

lol deadmau5 article came out surprisingly around the same time paris hilton did her DJ debut


although he has a valid argument people are saying hes doing this mainly for a publicity stunt since his rolling stones article/clothing line were just released around the same time


check this article out

LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! A RANT BY DJ GOODWILL


most of the emails start with “What have you done?!!??!!” or “Paris is playing your record! You must be soooooo embarrassed!”
I didn’t have an opinion at first. Then I woke up to another 25 emails about it. So I formed one. Here it is in the form of a rant.
To be honest it came as no surprise that Paris played my record. Commercial acts like David Guetta and Will I Am play my records all the time. It is great promo. It is part of the reason I get to tour around the world and I thank them specifically for it on a regular basis. Most producers do not admit that. I am not scared to.
In fact, I will send Paris some more of my music considering she seems to like the other one so much.
Perhaps I can DJ with Paris. I am quite competitive and would enjoy showing her up.
You see, I have been around long enough to know that with every new generation of DJs, there is an older one who is offended by their existence. It is the circle of life Simbah.
It must have scared people to see Paris gyrating around on stage and being sprayed with smoke and fireworks in her bedazzled head-phones and USB stick. That’s right, she even had her USB bedazzled. I suggest everyone gets used to this scene though.
Whether you like it or not dance music is now super duper mainstream. It even has a cute nickname ‘EDM’. Complete with candy ravers, CO2 cannons and weak ecstasy. This is the biggest thing in the US since, er, the Rolling Stones, if Rolling Stone is anything to go by.
People are still getting their heads around the meteoric rise of the genre. I worked it out years ago. Mixing Ministry of Sound CDs, doing a show on Nova, appearing in TV Ads. Jeff Mills and I have not had Tea and Scones in quite some time.
Will Paris Hilton ever fully understand what it takes to be a great DJ? Probably not. She exists in the world of celebrity and pop music. It is a bizzare and very different world. She was clearly miming and it will be a long time before she is great. Stranger things have happened though.
I do not know Paris Hilton very well at all so I have no clear idea about what she wants from her DJ career. It is most likely to be more fame, more money and a vehicle to keep soaking up a luxurious lifestyle.
Is she striving for creative satisfaction via music releases and quality gigs? Who will ever really know.
Of course I expect the public to have an opinion on Paris Hilton becoming a DJ. She is a product of their fascination.
What I find strange is the many public strong negative opinions of my peers.
What is clear to me is that my peers are using people like Paris Hilton, David Guetta and the Swedish House Mafia as a vehicle to mouth off and receive PR.
Don’t get me wrong. I believe every one has a right to an opinion. Even a very public one. I can just spot media manipulation and jaded critics from a mile off.
Am I defending Paris Hilton as a DJ? Not at all. I rarely think about all this. I just have a strong opinion on the haters. The goddam haters. They are always there.
Lets take DJ Sneak and Deadmau5 as recent very public examples.
I didn’t see anyone pointing out that Sneak’s recent rant about Swedish House Mafia was at the same time as he was releasing his latest mix CD. A coincidence? I think not.
His name was splashed across every dance media for weeks. It would be uncool to point it out publicly though. Sneak is an ‘under-ground’ artist, so no one would ever call his bluff apart from the artists he criticises.
I am calling his bluff right now. He is as much a part of the hype machine as the Swedish House Mafia is.
Sneak needed column inches and the media outlets that reported his rant needed hits. The easiest way to achieve that is to take on the biggest act by calling them fakers. Nice one Sneak. I hope you sold a few CDs at least.
Moving right over to Deadmau5. There is no doubt he is talented. But his recent post HERE is typical of his narrow-minded views of DJs.
Make no mistakes though. He criticises and rants to achieve hype and PR. He is really clever at it. He is manipulating the spotlight on Paris Hilton to his own advantage. Just as I am by writing this rant.
Thanks for reading.
See you at the disco Paris

Now , I understand that sometimes the audience pressure can take a bad turn like in the case of Calvin Harris in Vegas. I am sure most, if not all, of us have heard that Calvin was kicked off the decks for refusing to play radio music. A friend of mine made a valid statement when he said that Calvin shouldn’t have even wanted to finish that set. When you make demands like that of the performer you’re removing him from the situation entirely. He might as well just sit back and press play on an iPod playlist.
Calvin harris had to stop because of the wind storm. So did every other stage.

Why you mad?

Every song that has been produced has repetitive rhythms or lyrics, that is what makes it catchy.

Fuck i bet the songs you listen to has the same shit

There is drums guitars pianos in EDM. It's just that it's electronic. People still use strings/drums to make sounds for EDM.

As big of a fan I am of Hendrix, Ramones, and virtually every other great rock band out there, you're failing to understand something... You can't dance to rock. At least, not in the same way that you can to the Top 40 or House Trance. And THAT is one of the main reasons why people to go clubs and listen to Tiesto, Deadmau5, or any other EDM artist/producer/whatever. If I want to listen to someone shred a fantastic, off the cuff guitar solo that lasts for 10 minutes, I'll go to a rock concert. If I want to simply let loose and move to the beat, I'll go to a club and listen to techno.

It seems every 10 years or so, we get a "OMG electronic music is going mainstream! save it!" theme. I remember on this very forum at least 12 years ago someone was making fun of me for liking Daft Punk

Why is this even news?... I thought it was obvious that the "sets" they play on stage are pre-recorded, how do you think they interact with the crowd? I see Armin jumping up on top of the table all the time and pumping up the fans!
People go to the shows to to experience the atmosphere, the vibe, the lights, the music, the people, all in beautiful harmony. Just thinking back about fireworks at EDC gave me goosebumps, it was awesome. - 'nuff said

I don't follow him on twitter, but whenever his blog posts get mentioned here, or when I hear an interview, he does come across that way. Like the dorky kid everyone hated, but now suddenly has a lot of fame and fortune. All the power to him - GEEKS UNITE~!
