barred genres addendum

dubstep, dumstep, anything with 'step' in the title or anything vaguely related, such as grime and while you're at it, reggaeton, anything from Belgium and let's ban chocolate croissants just for the hell of it (but hands off the cheese and muffins or you will be impaled on a rusty spike outside Buck House)

The best music is mine btw. Me, Me, Me. That's what everyone is going to say on a thread like this.

Unless Ableton come up with an official competition with prizes and no voting for yourself and have a moderator run it, something I haven't seen them do in the 4 years I've been posting here, you might as well go and spank the monkey and get your kicks. That is all. I've entered other contests which function like this and they were pretty lame too, but at least I won $25 at one of them (http://mix2r.fm/) 3 years or so ago for having the joint 2nd best electronic track (probably 10 people voted and there really was a lot of noob crap in that contest, so I take no pride in being joint 2nd ...)
