true techno is like MOBY, .... sometimes or usually has words to it and kinda old'school, were trance is the new techno......more for raves and crap like that i personally like trance a lot better then techno it has more of a feeling to it then techno w/ the way it TRANSforms into other sounds, rather then sticking to a beat
Who cares if it was made by machines. Most of Pink Floyd's music was made by machines and that is some of the greatest music ever recorded. David Gilmour once said something along the lines of "we may use the kitchen sink, but you can't give a plumber a kitchen sink and have him make music with it."
MOBY is odd,but a couple songs are cool, but i digg DeisleBoy his chit can be off the hook i seen him spin live once and he was tight but your def. of house is diff. then what we got down here, house round here is like hip hop club muzic.
ANY type of expression through sound wither it is noise from a machine or from an instrument its music, b/c music is nothing more then sound with emotions, look at Motzart he made music through his emotions and a piano thats how he came up with MUSIC, look at those people that use trash cans that MUSIC, DJs just show there emotions through synthised* sound and with spining records.there is no diffrence its all music.
They dont "steal" anymore, they have to pay royalties, Using samples from other music can be effective look at "ready or not" by the Fugees that enya sample is excellent in that track, George Michael, Sinead O'connor, EMF and loads of others used The James Brown "Funky Drummer" Sample to great effect too. Blackbox were naughty a few years ago though, but "Ms Holloway" soon sorted that out!
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
