How has 2011 been for music with you? Good? bad? Any stories? Opinions?...
2011 for me has been one of my favorite years for music.
Every month there has been something fantastic come out. So much so that I feel I can ignore the amount of crap that has saturated a certain music scene...
Yeah, IDM and Breakcore seems to have died this year (well, the types of IDM/Breakcore that I love most anyway)....but I have begun to realize that I don't really mind. I love that stuff and have been heavily into it all since about 2005, but this year my imagination has changed in an unexpected way for what I believe underground music could possibly sound like in a few years time.
In 2010, I remember beginning to feel very disappointed that IDM and Breakcore were being pushed under the rug and disliking other genres that were emerging which I was becoming aware of, but emerging around a different sound, tempo and rhythm style that I didn't feel I could enjoy. I originally felt quite resentful towards them for no other reason than attempting to defend a past I had previously enjoyed and hoped would supersede other futures in music scenes. But after digging deep, I have begun to feel so impressed with whats on offer that I'm glad I have been able to get over being such a IDM/Breakcore elitist. 2011 really got me out of that headspace.
So yeah, thank you 2011 for that.
