I was actually just thinking that we need an EDM thread yesterday. Good timing here.

Anyway, I've been on a Mark Knight kick lately. I can listen to Alright over and over

You can happily stay in the other thread if that's what you think.

Sometimes when a thread is as huge as the last one there's so many little cliques and so many in-jokes it can be pretty hard to just bust in. Personally, I think a refresh is a cool idea. That may just be because it's good timing for me personally, though.

I'm not a big Deadmau5 fan but when his set hit, it hit pretty damn hard. I personally loved Avicii's set just because it was so different. I love that kind of new take on genres.

Electronic dance music (sometimes referred to as EDM, club music, or simply as dance music) is electronic music produced primarily for the purposes of use within a nightclub setting, or in an environment that is centered in dance-based entertainment.

Maybe you are thinking of IDM?

Intelligent dance music (commonly IDM) is a form of electronic music that emerged in the early 1990s. It was originally influenced by developments in underground dance music such as Detroit Techno and various breakbeat styles that were emerging in the UK at that time.[2][3] Stylistically, IDM tended to rely upon individualistic experimentation rather than adhering to musical characteristics associated with specific genres of dance music.[4] The range of post-techno[5] styles to emerge in the early 1990s were described variously as art techno,[6] ambient techno, intelligent techno, and electronica.[7]

I'm not thinking of IDM at all. I generally don't dig ambient shit all that much. I feel like I stepped into crazy land or something! Every single thing I posted is for clubs/festivals by dj producers.....I'm lost.

This thread is a good idea. You don't want this stuff to be posted in the other thread, it'll just turn into a giant bitch-fest on what's "true" music. Kind of exactly what's starting to happen. This is more mainstream, big room electro stuff. The other thread is for underground house and techno, more stylized stuff. They do not mix, at all, and we should have separate threads for them. I don't see how this is hard to understand at all. If I have to hear another person scoff at "Levels" as if it somehow validated their tastes in dance music again, I'll fucking lose it. Stay out of this thread if you don't like it, which I plan on doing.

That said, I totally support this thread and its direction.

Also, what Jambo said about kids wearing scarves versus kids who listen to club music is hilariously misguided. The one thing this thread splinter will do is just further divide fans of electronic music. It's splintered enough as it is, we don't really need to make it worse.

I'll give you underground I guess but not really that much ambient stuff. Its like 55% house...20% techno, 10% trap, 15% all other stuff.

Ambient stuff bores me to tears too.

Pretty much sums it up 100%. The other thread is more underground, this one is pretty much festival headliners/mainstream stuff. I think most of us have been afraid to post in the other thread for that reason.

I think a new thread is a great idea, and big room electro stuff can be fine too. I just saw this thread on the 1st pages and was excited that there was a new EDM thread and we'd get more/new posters. But then I see it as THIS IS EDM...but that that (the second that being the original thread) isn't EDM. I'm still fairly new to this whole thing but its pretty confusing.

Plus yes, most of that stuff sucks, not cause its mainstream or anything.

Okay guys lets make up.

EDM not being all forms of electronic music is really, really, REALLY confusing and hair-splitting. but given that the other EDM thread skews more underground/hipster/fringe/just-not-mainstream i think it's fine to have two threads. with the speed at which both threads seem like they'll be moving, this will help from it getting impossible to follow.

that said, y'all should be listening to tritonal. new ep dropped monday.

Like everyone else said, this thread is more for mainstream stuff. The difference should be pretty clear. When I go I to that thread all I see is electronic beep booo music, not necessarily electronic dance music.
