I could see just doing a IDMf does EDM compilation...not bill it as a pisstake, not bill it as "look how easy this is" ...if we just make the tracks and present them won't that show that us IDM/underground music cunts can switch gears, make a super pop track, and go on about our days?
I have been seriously digging on 4x4 tracks lately myself anyway. I would also be an excuse to compress the shit out of everything lol.
I don't know... it could just be seen as poking a little fun.
Anyway do you really think IDMforums is known well enough for this to cause a fuss? And if it did then why don't all of the anti-EDM comments on here by members already do? There are enough threads on here that could already be seen as putting us on a pedestal...
Is it worth doing an IDMf does EDM comp at all? In regards to sticking it to...???...whoever...nah...they aren't ever going to listen or get it. TBH I really didn't think this would get taken beyond a quick in-thread joke.
Don't worry dude, looks like we're at a "people who are into it are in and people who aren't are out" moment.
It won't be anything to do with IDMf either really, so yeah, dudes who are down, go for it and I'll leave you to it.
I think that would be a personal choice, no? I'm pretty sure from what you have said that for you, it wouldn't be. But why not let people choose for themselves? If enough people want to do this (probably not me even though I would be interested in how well I could pull something like that off) I say go for it and make it the best edm song you can
Edit: And anyway, how many people really listen to the stuff that most of us make? I know that there aren't many that really care about my music at this point. There's still a point to it for me personally and if someone else enjoys it along the way it makes me happy (and off course I wish more people would listen to it)
I think some people might be surprised actually Not saying EDM is harder than anything else might be but I also don't believe it's just as easy as some people want to portray it...
Ah, yeah, it is. The hardest part is finding a lady friend who is willing to sing some generic lyrics about love or dancing or infinity or some shit.
And yeah, if we're doing the douche factor, let's not make it an official IDMf release. Seriously, the day I see an IDMf release of EDM is the day I join that poor cunt in the "delete my account" thread.
