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.

society has basically digested rap so it's near the end of its useful run. It'll always be around but then again so will nickleback

They're not replacing it with techno and trance. I would call it electronic-influenced pop-music. Techno would be stuff like Adam Beyer, Victor Calderone, Sven Vaeth, Richie Hawtin, etc. They wouldn't play that stuff in a million years. And as for Armin's debut on Kiss 95.1, that's a pop song from a once-respected trance artist/DJ. He opened up his set at UMF in Miami with Clarity for crying out loud. Teeny boppers loved it. I felt like throwing up. And don't even get me started on Avicii's "Wake Me Up."
