Re: What does electronic music mean to you?

I think it was someone in this forum who said (roughly)that "Good music should have some level of surprise and unpredictability". I agree. Electronic music gives me two levels of anticipation: composition and sonic possibility. And the last one is what it means to me. If I listen to a song, I may fe...

Re: Ozzilator - Meltdown (electronic disco)

I love hearing examples that use Ableton only. Hearing good ones always reminds me how far I still have to go. This one was really good. Cheers

Re: Chillout Live

Great set from start to finish. I have no idea how you did that, but I was drawn in pretty quickly. Great sounds, very interesting things happening throughout. Blows my mind.

You guys are great. Really like the tunes on MySpace. It's probably just the vocoded vocals but the sounds reminds me of Apparat Organ Quartet. Like a party version of Apparat Organ Quartet...yeah!

Re: local music scenes

North America is a big place. In small town, USA that's probably the case. But I've never sensed any kind of hostility towards electronic music living in Toronto, visiting Chicago or New York. I think most people embraced it by now. If not trance or house, at least combined in a traditional band set...

Re: new to djing

really cool, no doubt. I really dig this style. It's 'easy' to listen to and groove along. 2nd mix was a bit more interesting but both pretty bad ass. What did you use to mix?

Re: Summer Music Challenge (House Track)
