Im gonna go with post new future flamenco intelligent mantra .
( I like your chart )
Intelligent dance music
Not repeating mistakes of other people is great but everyone (some) thinking about making a new genre sucks.
People need familiarity within music. The more stupid they are the more familiar it needs to be. I think criticising “stupid” music is useless and hatefull because “stupid” people also need their own bone to chew so those many genres some call stupid forming from edm are just something natural that happens when majority of people dig into it. Also a lot of genres came from “idm” because it is not really elitistic and intelligent.
By thinking about making a new genre people position themselves as a leader even if they lack the ability, therefore having as fans dumber people. If you were going to do what smarter people do better it would be nice, and to not repeat other mistakes.
Another thing is genres do not get created by 1 person. You need some followers that are convinced this “brand new stuff” is indeed robotic disco or drill’n’vapour or whatever.
So if you think you are making a new genre you must do good music, which was probably failed to do to to get such an idea.
Nothing wrong with experimentation, when you know how to put it in use. Having some self control.
About innovation: it is important to consider what was actually made on your own and what not, and the difference between all others, and people generally fail to do that. Also people have different spectrums of what they compare between itself so failure is more possible within many different ears. More the same ears, more tolerance for being uncreative.
Did you automate and set parameters on that synth like nobody else in the world? Good job sir! You must be very talented!
Otherwise, saying to go for a genre is not uncreative in my opinion because all genres are the fucking same. Saying to go for house but in a few clicks it can be “dubstep” or “ambient”, there is no real difference between genres.
If you can turn an ambient track into techno with one kick dont tell me the difference between genres. Or putting 20% distortion on something. People get too creative with the limitations of something out of the appeal of it and laziness.
Add a snare and a hihat, a bass etc. and you can have 569+ genres right there, then it is just all about the patterns you make and sound selection/efx that really makes the music.
Off-topic… I did not even understood you Bfk. I think you have a lot of opinions, cant sort them all you know…
I do not give a fuck about your subjective experience of music as a stream, divided into phases, honestly telling. You should not mind, i should not have written it.
I agree with xSANTAxDURSTx, dubstep and edm is not dead but being repacked as something new to keep selling it to the masses…
Just imagine when 2005-10 kids grow up… we will have more dubstep. It is going to be like dubstep. 2032- dubstep 2 era. New skrillexes.
And just imagine in 80 years…all the music still sounding like edm/dubstep… Is not that wonderfull???
Can music be changed???
Stay here for new 7 random people not doing idm music on the idm netlabel forum posts , they will keep coming, dont miss em!!!
I do not know about breakcore but i guess the audience has enlarged.
Forgive me for this text… i am going to use my time better
