I remember back in 99 when i made mix cd's all my friends would ask me when i would do the next "techno" cd. I'd look at them *sigh* and state that it was "trance" and that "techno" is a much harder genre.. Today I make a mix cd and noone cares about it. If your not tiesto, sasha, digweed, noone really cares.
The scene today is something I am very unfamiliar with, and i do not like at all. It has become nothing more than a popularity contest of who knows who, who can get vip, and who has the best drugs. When it stopped being about the music, I dont know. But as i get older it really takes more for me to go out and enjoy myself often having to indulge myself in drugs or alchohol to have a good time. I am not saying drugs are not a part of the scene as they helped mold the scene, but today a greater weight is put on drugs or alchohol to have a good time.
I really do enjoy music for whats its worth. I just wish everyone else would enjoy music rather than whose name is attached to it.
I fear my time as a member to this community is gradually coming to a end. And I believe it is time to let another generation of clubbers take over as i do not know what "the scene" is anymore.
"What is music...... its a unfolding of the developement of our consciousness using sound as the media"
can't say I agree with you at all. You're done with this scene because your non-trance mix didn't get enough reviews and comments on tranceaddict? What were you epecting?
And I think a lot of people in the scene care about a shit load more djs than just the big ones you named. In fact, the longer I have personally been in the scene, the less I care about the big names and I think that goes for a lot of people, especially on here.
Nowadays everyone is trying ot get people to listen to their mixes online. Whatever happened to just making mixes because you love to do it? If you can't get people to listen to them you're done with it? idk, I 'll say this...the last two mixes you have posted have actually looked pretty interesting, but I just don't care enough to sit here and wait for it to download. I'd be interested in hearing it if were given to me on a cd, but its 2005, and anyone can go download software and get a mix online.
This wasn't meant to be a stab at you by any means...I just read your post and it struck me as a little off.
