I don't think i really 'get' the whole new disco thing...
like 70s and 80s stuff i really like, but it kinda pisses me off all the stuff coming out lately which has the same production values, simply because these people are INTENTIONALLY making it sound bad so it sounds like its 30 years old...
disco shit was out of time because it was played live, and the technology wasn't good enough to fkn quantize everything, these days all you have to do is hit a button and your instruments will be in time, yet you get these guys who are no doubt mad producers zooming in and intentionally putting instruments out of time simply to mimic the sound...
pisses me off.
make something fucking new instead of ripping off a style... the 90s and 00s really have not created anything new whatsoever, its a fucking population of reinventors, wtf happened to the human drive to improve, and revolutionise!?!?!?
every style, and movement for the last 20 years has simply been a reimagination of old movements... wtf is wrong with everybody!?
I'd kind of agree with your complaints about the 00s, but the 90s? Really? Most of the best electronica ever made came from the 90s, and there were tons of new styles and sounds being created
