Electronic Music as a Culture

Regarding the title, I'm a Electronic music producer and i'm at the point where i'm starting to see the beauty behind music and the cultural side to it all and with electronic music the beauty is just blooming inside my heart. Like, I see rap and Hip-Hop and I just see really cocky people but I see Electronic music and its just so beautiful and HUMBLE. Really humble.

Everyday I see these kids at school, people call them Down Stairs kids because they eat lunch downstairs. But honestly they're really cool, this one kid had his speakers and he was playing some song from the YouTube channel, " UKF Drum and Bass " and I became envious of his passion. HE GAVE NO FUCKS. And he was a humble dude.

If any has any other elements that fit to Electronic music on a cultural side please feel free to reply. I love the topic.

Re: Electronic Music as a Culture

There are a lot of similar topics happening on the forums lately, but it's not the genre. Every genre has cocky assholes as well as humble, cool people. You're just in tune to the electronic realm (and probably more obscure artists), therefore you haven't seen that side of hip-hop. You just have to search harder.

Re: Electronic Music as a Culture

I have the opposite experience really. Like, when you say hiphop, I think like instrumental hiphop and shit, rdj2, stuff down that lane. And the people I've met that like that shit are like... they just do things, listen to music and thats it.

While a lot of electronic, especcially edm, I've gotten a bit eltist feel from, where its kind of become the new jock music. And dont even get started on hardstyle fans.


Obviously, thinking that what music you listen to is what defines you as a person is fucking stupid, tho. I don't think there's even a majority of this and that kind of people in any genre.

Except IDM. Everyone who listens to IDM is a pretentious cock.

Re: Electronic Music as a Culture

electronic music has a great culture behind it. meeting people youve never spoken to before at raves is great, your all there for the same reason. granted there are always a few dicks but there are dicks in every walk of life.

Re: Electronic Music as a Culture

This isn't unique to electronic music, at all, I have personally experienced a similar atmosphere at post-rock, drone and some metal gigs and I'm certain most genres have this.

It depends on the artist and the venue (or site you're on). Post-rock for example is a very non-mainstream genre, when you go to a concert you kind of know everyone present also likes this kind of music (in contrary to your daily life where everyone around you listens to crap). You know these people also enjoy this music and that creates a bond, even if you don't know them at all you get an instant 'we'.
The artists are usually more there for the music than for the money/popularity, they care about their fans and want to share their music with other people. This will also have an effect on the fans and create much stronger interactions than popular mainstream artists can ever create on those huge festivals.

Re: Electronic Music as a Culture

I agree with the last post. There are alot of great communities and cultures behind other genres as well. Although i must say, We have a really good one. There are tons and tons of nice producers, Good producers too, that are really nice awesome people! This culture is definitely amazing, but electronic isnt the only genre that has it.

I get the strangest jerking that wasn't meant to be taken seriously.

P.S: I meant "feeling" but my phone decided to put "jerking" instead. I'm jerking it.

P.P.S: I meant "keeping it"

Re: Electronic Music as a Culture

Electronic music has always had a friendlier fan base imo, but with the sky rocket of it's popularity in the U.S. lately, there are a ton of idiots in the scene now. I don't believe the boom will last though, electronic music has always thrived in the underground.

Re: Electronic Music as a Culture

As a begrudgingly identified american, I don't resent that statement. This is a huge country, which means there are bound to be a huge amount of assholes. Conversely, a large population of cool people too. It's also the most schizo country I've ever been a part of, having lived in others. People here tend to have Stockholm syndrome and willful ignorance about their government's behavior. I digress.

Do any on this forum really feel a kinship with that flag that hovers below our names? I get that it helps to identify where we all are but really, it's more like a banner for our mafia overlords.

Every musical petri dish attracts bandwaggoners and elitists. Drop in something sweet and wait. A short time later the dish is full of that which is best drowned in Dettol

Re: Electronic Music as a Culture

Read a few chapters of Simon Reynolds' Bring the Noise before judging hip hop so fast, OP.

Also, I challenge the notion that being "humble" is a good thing or even a pervasive thing in "Electronic Music culture". "Electronic Music culture" assumes a homogeneity that just isn't there. An rjd2 concert, or a skrillex concert are completely different from an iszoloscope performance or an gatekeeper dj set or an ivardensphere concert or a brooklyn warehouse party. The people involved are completely different and the crowds are totally totally different. Completely different.

I didn't mean to put down the american fans. I'm from Canada, and it's pretty much the same deal here. A part of me is glad that dance music is getting the recognition it deserves in north america again, but it's like it blew up in the worst way. Dubstep and shitty pop, and then everyone using the term "edm" like they know what they're talking about. Acts like david guetta, steve aoki, skrillex...all terrible imo.

Oh well, that's the mainstream for ya...always taking the best out of ever genre and turning it into the worst watered down garbage. That's not to say underground music is perfect, but there's definitely a higher ratio of good vs bad.
