^Disco never evolved. EDM has evolved dramatically over the past 5-7 years and continues to.

As usual I complete agree with Prospero.

Found Skrillex on the Zune Pass a few months ago (was in a "Songs you might like" Smart DJ list) and I was like, hey this is pretty good. Between him and Girl Talk's seemingly infinite number of mixtapes and bootlegs, I've been a happy camper for a while.

Skrillex's Scary People is great, but I don't think it deserved the win. I don't even know why Robyn - "Call Your Girlfriend" was even nominated. Way more pop than electronic. Same goes for "Save the World" - Swedish House Mafia.

Maybe I'm just not sophisticated enough - I like Justice and Digitalism.

Barbara Streisand and Raise your Weapon were really good nominees tho.

Lol I was gonna say you can tell neon works for M$.

Seriously I have had a small place in my <3 for techno/electronic since I've had the internet. It started with prodigy and no, not the fat of the land (I got music for the jilted in 94).

But ukf deadmau5 and skrillex are more what I had hoped it would turn into.

^ Mine started with NiN.

Bassnectar is a way more talented dubstep artist imo. I have Skrillex's cd and it's just 7 remixes of the same fucking song.

Look I love electronic music and ... IDM but there is nothing special about skrillex. Jesus christ bass nectar is worse than skrillex imo. This is shit tier.

God tier is amon tobin, ratatat, justice, squarepusher, prometheus, etc...

Enjoy your bandwagon shitty electronic music that again is only popular because kids to ecstacy at raves to it

So I put a bunch of Skrillex songs in the Sims 3 custom music folder and my gf inadvertently listens to Skrillex in game. Most of his lyrics sound like Sims banter

Both of these apply to 90% of artists today.

And the first question applies to nearly 100%.

Music production is difficult. Coming up with good sounding music is extremely difficult. Don't knock it until you've tried it.

I think Skrillex is suffering from a two-pronged attack. The "I've listened to dubstep before he was popular and it became mainstream so therefore he's the Nickelback of dubstep for becoming popular" crowd. And the "What the hell is this even music?" crowd. Both are idiots.

No it isn't. There's tons of good indie music, metal and other electronic music that doesn't sound anything like music 10 years ago. If you are looking to the radio or the grammys to find well written music then that's like buying books in a grocery store

he barely produces any dubstep. i enjoyed his first album, but his gimmick has run dry.

^^You're right.

Frank Sinatra, Stan Getz, The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Carole King, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Fleetwood Mac, Billy Joel, Michael Jackson, Lionel Ritchie, Phil Collins, U2, George Michael, Quincy Jones, Eric Clapton, Whitney Houston, Tony Bennett, Celine Dion, Lauryn Hill, Santana, Steely Dan, Norah Jones, Outkast, Ray Charles, Herbie Hancock, Arcade Fire, and Adele are all terrible shit artists and proof that you should never look to the Grammys for quality music.

There are some good books in grocery stores, but it is not barnes and noble. Besides we are talking about current music. I can't remember the last time I wasn't listening to npr or wknc in the car... but I also can't remember the last time I heard a good song on the pop charts written by the person who preforms it (save maybe rap songs if you're a kanye fan- haven't heard his new record)

A lot of these are mediocre and several didn't even write their own songs.

An artist is only legitimate if he writes his own songs and plays every single instrument and produces the entire music himself.

You're right. Tony Bennett is such a shit artist! INDIE MUSIC 4 LYFE BRO.

Half the people on that list were famous before mtv, which is basically responsible for commercializing shitty music

Okay I'm sorry being able to sing is not a talent. Go to any black church in america and you will find 50 14 year old girls who can sing better than adele or whoever the flavor of the year is


Write a song that isn't a rip off of the beatles with some 90s r&b influence and then get back to me.

Tony Bennett is the basketball coach of the Virginia Cavaliers. I'm not sure why he's in this discussion.

ke$ha does not sing well, at all.

just for the record, the ability to sing well is not the same as the ability to write lyrics.

oh and i'm not a ke$ha fan so i'm not sure why that particular example was chosen

Let's be real. Talent has little to do with how famous someone is. How famous someone is has everything to do with how marketable someone is and having at least a modicum of talent.
