Elephant Dick Mucus?


Am I just an old guy and that's a (lame) young guy way of referring to "electronic dance music" - or am I a REALLY old guy and it refers to something else?

It's a catchphrase, like "electronica" was used in the 90s.

For some people it's just an easier way of saying "electronic dance music."

For some people, "EDM" is stuff like Deadmau5, Skrillex, etc.  It's the pop stuff they can't stand and want nothing to do with.  It's kind of a hipster attitude.

Some people still feel "electronic music" was a decent enough term, and if anyone really wants to know you tell them the specific styles that you're into.

Skrillex is not a "DJ"  Neither is deadmaus or any of the other asshats out there.  They are clowns who stand on a stage, push buttons, and fistpump.  When they can mix and beatmatch (at the very least), call yourself a DJ.
When Madonna is extolling the virtues of "molly" you may as well call the fonz and tell him to wax up his water skis.

Want to know what a DJ is?

The fact that Will Smith is able to find work in the wake of "After Earth" is all the evidence needed to show that we're doomed.

Will Smith, like many movie stars before him (Warren Beatty comes to mind) has learned how to game the system by contently having dozens of production deals going on movies which will never get made. Hollywood loves people like him.

That's like saying "classical music is a joke". It's naively and ignorantly impugning a massive supergenre of artistic endeavor. Certainly much of it is dreck, but there are always gems in any genre, not to mention a spectrum of talent involved.

If you read his further posts, you can see that he's not slagging electronic music as a whole, but the artists who are generally called "EDM" as I explained in an earlier post.

The entire genre is filled with a lot of pretenders right now who just push buttons, wave their hands in the air, hire ghost producers to do all the music creation, and pre-record all their DJ sets so they have to do a minimum of actual effort.

Looks like everyone's using term 'EDM' differently
