Your thoughts on: Dance Music


Dead Crow

Recommended Posts

I don't know many dance fans on here (except HSM), but I myself am a big old school dance fan, whether Haddaway, Sash or Amber. There are still good songs out, from people like DJ Sammy and Room 5... but what do you think of dance, both past and present?

 

Were you a fan of 80s dance? 90s dance? Is nowadays dance better? Are you a house dancer or a trance dancer? Or does it do nothing for you?

Does absolutely nothing for me, just sounds like random beeps, not gonna say it's terrible though because people do like it so it means there is some appeal to it.

I can listen to some of it. The artist and song names I have no idea about cos it's not really something I discuss, but when I'm around my friends' houses and they're playing that kind of stuff I really enjoy it. Also, my uncle listens to some seriously funky-ass shit and that's the greatest music ever! Download Tricky!

Not particularly a fan of dance but I'd take it over some of the heavy rock music you hear. I'd prefer listening to the likes of Sasha, Digweed and the like rather than cheese like Sash or Scooter. The first two is good dance, the second two are not.

Dance music rules.

 

I like rock music (Mettalics, Linkin Park, Sabbath) when im at home on the PC with a couple of cans.

 

The on the other hand when i go up town, dance music rules ass, especially when you are pissed. So yeah dance is good.

I like dance music when I hear it, although Im no totally sure on names and stuff. I wouldnt buy it to listen to whenever i want, but if it comes on the radio or that I'll listen to it.

Cant believe i didnt see this topic sooner :D

 

Yes im a fan of dance music but not so much chart dance music, I do enjoy some of it however just not the cheesy euro pop brand of music such as DJ Sammy.

 

I listen to most types of music but Dance has always been my mainstay particularly Trance and House. I find it the perfect music to drive too and it can also be very uplifting but at the same time very relaxing.

 

I do have to say tho for someone to class Dance music as "Random beeps" is pretty laughable. Its the same as saying that Metal is just "Random noise", but then again this forum never has been known for its openmindedness on dance music now has it

I'm a huge fan of dance music, especially from the 90's. What youngsters don't understand is that when old timers like me and HSM were growing up, Metal was widely considered to be a relic from the past. There was hardly any guitar based music when I was growing up until the Britpop era kicked in. You certainly never used to see kids hanging around outside Woolworths wearing T-Shirts with Metal bands names, infact people like this were widely mocked.

 

I lused to and still do love tunes from the likes of KLF, N-Trance, Snap, SL2, The Shamen, Prodigy, Strike, 808 State, Felix, Livin' Joy, The Original, Reel 2 Reel, Alex Party, K-Klass, Cafe Del Mar, Basement Jaxx etc.

 

I do like some modern dance music, but I think that as kids become less interested, mainstream dance music will just fade away until it becomes the "in thing" again. Of course dance music will never die, you only have to listen to Radio 1 on a Friday/Saturday evening to know that there are still great dance tunes being created, unfortunately not much of it gets into the mainstream anymore, and we're left with "dance acts" like DJ Sammy clogging up the charts.

 

There will always be a market for dance music as I can't see many nightclubs playing Linkin Park etc being overly succesfull.
