ARSEN

Rap is getting replaced with techno/trance?

32 posts in this topic

When I was growing up rap used to be the poo. Radio played eminem, 50 cents, TI and many others. Now radio is full of trance and techno... When I moved to US, everyone used to make fun of Europeans but it's seems US is slowly drifting in that direction... When I heard Armin Van Buuren on 95.1 the other day I was like wtf is happening?

I understand that everyone has different musical tasts and preferences, like for example I much prefer the Singer/Songwriter and Indi genre to pretty much anything else, but that's manly because I enjoy my music being more lyrical.

 

but out side of Jay Z and Macklemore there isnt a single rap artist I'd waste my time listening to, now that doesn't mean there aren't other ones worthy out there, but just in my opinion right now there isn't.

 

Electric and Techno music is greatly based on being original and being different from everyone else, like Daft Punks latest "Random Access Memories" making Disco cool again, and who would have ever thought that would happen again, Skrillex created a new sub genre altogether with Dubstep and and many other musical groups have adopted it and his Bass drop. it's just a more progressive music right now then anything else.

Not that I'm a big dubstep guy, but Skrillex certainly had nothing to do with the creation of the genre.  He had a role in popularizing it in the States, but dubstep predates Skrillex.

also respectful of people's tastes in music but I'm not a fan of rap, dance or techno.

 

I'd sit and listen to classic rock, country all day long

You would willingly subject yourself to Macklemore, but shun every other hip hop/rap artist? Yikes.

    • If nothing else that would mean more kicker jobs as guys like Lloyd would be in demand as a kick off specialist.
    • im generally ok with individual consumers boycotting but tbh im a little annoyed with companies boycotting. these businesses aren't benevolent and boycotting doesn't make their product more pure or their mode of production more ethical. i mean hey big deal ncaa, you moved your games. you're not taking much of a hit there but you get your positive press for your incredibly shitty business. like ok cool you hate the dumb law, i do too. maybe pay your employees before trying to stake out the moral high ground though??? meanwhile the nba moves it's all star game to louisiana where the largely black prison population still picks cotton on "former" slave plantations. hb2 is so mind numbingly stupid that it's easy to oppose without fear of having to sacrifice meaningful profits. im saving praise for companies that oppose oppressive institutions that aren't easy or profitable to oppose.
