    Default Its not Techno!!

    Evening all, I read the home page skrillex entry and was watching the video when a co-worker came along and started talking about how he listens to techno too.....my face >

    I try to explain to him that there are differerent types of EDM and he asked wtf is EDM.

    Is there any easy to explain that all EDM is NOT TECHNO!!

    Thanks

    Nope. Ignorance is bliss, and people have that perspective in the majority, at least here in the US.

    I just tell them EDM = Electronic Dance Music, and that there are different styles, just like how you wouldn't call "classic" rock "deathmetal" by any stretch. It usually shuts people up, or opens the door for me to explain to them and show different styles.

    lol i used to rock comparison and then he went off on explaining the differences in rock. Pulled out good old youtube and let him hear the differences between trance, house, electro house and dubstep and it all sounds like techno to him.

    Ummmmm NO! but thanks for playing we have some wonderful cancellation prizes.


    I hate it when people just call it techno. or even after i explain it they say it just sounds like techno. Im sorry but my deep jazzy House sounds nothing like techno, here is a bowl of shut the hell up you ignorant twat.

    You can try to explain it to him but afterward if he still acts like an ignorant twat just tell him rocks boring and the guitar is the 21st century version of the piano & watching guys shred a riff is the equivalent of watching a piano recital.

    if hes over 30 ahhh man its priceless.
