in ibiza this year all i heard was "max you have to start playing minimal, its the new hot sound"
fuck you i say, i play what turns me on, always have always will.
I've been enjoying a lot of minimal stuff lately, but I want to say that I'm really glad you're taking the route you are.
It's kind of annoying to hear Tiesto, Armin, Markus Schulz, Gabriel & Dresden (their recent EM is just appalling) etc. drop the latest (or even 1-2 years old) tracks that are completely unlike their styles. These tracks aren't their identity, they're just popular. The fact that Markus was dropping Yoshimoto - Du What U Du (Trentemoller Mix) on his show, which is supposed to showcase new tracks, months after Lee Burridge had already put it on a major release is just sad. Armin and Tiesto dropping Oxia - Domino gets the same opinion from me.
I go to see certain types of DJs (or even specific DJs) to hear specific styles of music. If I want to hear minimal, I'll catch Hawtin, Loco Dice, Villalobos, etc. If I want to hear trance, I should be able to listen to Armin, PvD, Tiesto, etc., but instead, they're dropping the same tracks, trying to accomodate to the new hot style.
