Farkin' LOL! There's something funny and absurd about Simian having a dig at some guy for throwing cake at people's faces...

"especially in America where it%u2019s more obvious than anywhere else, is that it pushes a different kind of dance music"

That's for sure. Not to mention music becomes a fad here, where people listen to it just because it's cool to (dubstep?). It's unfortunate, but it seems "US" is synonymous with "mainstream". You want to cater to the mainstream crowd to hit it big (a la Guetta and Tiesto), you gotta target America. It's why both of those artists and others sound so different today than they did just a couple of years ago. I used to always say the same thing as Shaw... that dance music growing on these shores would be a great thing. I need to take that back now. (I'm from Canada but our music market isn't too different.)

To be fair, dance tastes in America have always been quite a bit different than the rest of the world. The UK dance scene even sounds different than the AUS dance scene. It just so happens that the US has the worst scene of them all.

@jbgillet - My thoughts exactly. But that's just generic pop music I guess, music for entertainment.

aoki has always been like that though, its part of what made him cool before all these other wankers decided to do it too and ruin dance music for all of us

The SMD boys are right, it's different music for a different demographic. But as long as the fans of the cake-throwers, stage-divers and r'n'b collaborators don't permeate deep into the more respected forms of dance music with the same throwaway attitudes that they show toward 'EDM', then no harm can be done.

And jamwildway, you continue to prove your ignorance.

Couldn't have said it better myself!
Not sure I entirely agree with you Morecowbell... I think it's a good thing for the scene if there are people who are introduced to electronic music through this lowest common denominator crap who actually decide to learn more about good electronic music... it makes the underground stronger

I actually agree completely with morecowbell and @rubbishtalk - sure its great when these new people are introuduced to the more intricate genre's and underground sounds, the problem is that they don't come with open minds, they come in with certain expectations such as: "oh this DJ isn't playing anything i know, what a sh*t DJ / Night".

You know the drill:
1. Corny overblown lyric borderline ballad attempt
2. Tacky wind up (the one that sounds like a balloon squealing)
3. Big drop which is mostly just the kick
4. Repeat steps 1 - 3
