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

 

 

EDM is the new frontier

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."

I got so sick of the same type of music. I got to the point where I stopped listening to music for the most part, though I missed music.  Then I found House music, dance, trance, trip hop, ambient and dubstep. It was like a breathe of fresh air.

 

I still have friends who ONLY listen to alternative and rock. I see old men who still only listen to the music on 99.7.  

 

Personally, I don't want to go through life without trying new things and being open to their awesomeness. It keeps things from getting stale.  I hope I'm not the old person saying, "the things these kids listen to today is total crap" because in reality it's typically not, it's just different from what they are use to.

I was really into techno and trance music in college, but whatever passes for it now a days, I'm just not that into.  I love Daft Punk though.  The new stuff has to grow on me because I'm so used to their older stuff.

 

I find it hard to find new music I like anymore.  I've fallen back into my 90s ska/punk/powerpop roots for the past few years, and I'm happy with it.  

 

As far as the contemporary rap music, I believe it's become far too commercial.  I mean, there is so much money to be made with it, it is all starting to sound the same.  Then again, I don't go out of my way to find new rap simply because the genre is kind of played out to me.

 

If I'm going through my most played music by artist it looks like this:  Reel Big Fish, Suburban Legends, Blink 182, Lostprophets, Bowling for Soup, Less than Jake, Goldfinger, The B-52s, and the Planet Smashers...  Not a huge amount of variety.  There's also the Dropkick Murphys, Cake, and Jimmy Eat World in there as well...  Maybe slightly more variety.

 

I guess I'm one of those 30+ guys in a musical rut, and I'm fine with that.  I'll be the first one to say that most of the new music kids listen to sucks.  "I guess this is growing up."

Someday you will be that old person saying that exact thing. Your grandparents said it to your parents. Your parents probably said it to you, and you will probably say it to your kids. I know when I started feeling that way, I knew I was getting "older".

I'm 32 and have a 6 year old and am not feeling it yet, lets hope it continues. 

 

I'm the kind of person that embraces change and doesn't think just because I grew up with it makes it better.

No one makes rap anymore anyway, at least mainstream, it's "hip-hop".  There really is a difference.  I still love 90's rap but that's where I stop.   I dig electronic genres,  but it's nothing knew.  I loved Prodigy's Fat of the Land and then Crystal Method, those were the first "main stream" electronic albums I had.  Then my brother introduced me to stuff like DJ Icey (trance) and others.  There are a ton of sub-genres.  +1 to throwing out that Skrillix didn't invent dubstep, it's true.  Dubstep really isn't like Skrillex's stuff mostly anyway.  I do like Skrillex though, it should be classified as "Transformer Sex" genre though.

I'll drop in some Lounge while I'm working at my desk .....used to listen to digital.fm, but my music tastes change all the time. My latest purchases have been the Two Steps from Hell epic music.
