Here goes a little f&#king rant
Browsing through Youtube on channels like armada’s has become a eyesore. Nearly every single human on there is not satisfied with the content they’re putting out, claiming “trance is dead,” “this is not armada,” it’s driving me absolutely livid. Yes the obvious is that the music is evolving and not everyone is going to like that, but half the moronic dimwits on there literally haven’t a clue to the sheer size of that record label, to spans across multiple sub labels catering to a large number of electronic genre’s from tech to progressive. But nooo, half the neanderthals on here would be hearing something that sounds slightly reminiscent of what would be on Revealed recordings or Mainstage (surprise surpise “Armada sublabel” = MS) and then loose their shit.
I suppose the point i’m trying to get at is what happened to hearing a piece of music, not liking it and then just going to find something else. It’s not that hard, i’m sure a large portion of people do it. But for some reason it seems very prevalent within the electronic community to bash something that doesn’t fit the standards of person who is listening to it. If you hear something that doesn’t tickle your fancy, just use that lazy fucking mind of yours to search around and find something else that haters to your close minded fragile persona. THERE’S SO MUCH OUT THERE! Tracks finished and released on the daily on every dance label imaginable and you’re sitting there on a Google plus forum whining about how the “drop” or “lack of drop” hurts you emotionally.
There’s a reason why a lot of artists experiment with other genre’s, because much like the person complaining about music, they’ve gotten bored of a sound too, want to expand and grow. Don’t be the lowlife who discourages the evolution of music or stamps on progress just because it’s not what you want to hear, there are so many artists out there who would cater to your exact needs. Just open your goddamn eyes and see the potential that’s out there. This close minded pessimistic attitude towards dance music is single highhandedly killing everything. I’m not saying you don’t have to like everything, just be more respectful and if need be, sit in your own exclusive corner listening to your 327 bpm electrobreaks speedcore, but don’t bust heads because not everyone else shares your passion for the wickedly filthy bassline that sounds like a camel is being given an enema.
At the end of the day they make the music for themselves, not you. So for the love of god, shut the fuck up.
