    Default A nasty new genre of music rears it's ugly head.

    What do you get when you combine Trap, Trance, Moombah, Deep House, Electro House and Dubstep

    I dont know, but this new stuff is taking the southeastern US by storm.

    I am hearing mixes where guys are just dropping 20 BPM at a time, not even halving the BPM just cutting tracks..??

    It seems like this style is tailored to please the masses.... Anyone else hearing this where they are??

    I heard ATRAK and Diplo play live and it seems like there are kind of the forerunners of this new genre, signing alot of artists with this new sound.

    Listen to this mix, I'm actually a big fan of the first and second song.

    (NOT MY MIX)

    Omg. I've been looking for that first song FOREVER. Was google searching it literally 5 minutes ago as soon as I woke up.

    Yea, some of those mixes are straight up messy.

    I've heard the quick drops and cutting a lot at Mysteryland, it was very good there. Kill the Noise, DVBBS, and Flosstradamus really like it. I think if used well, it sounds great, but it's pretty difficult to always time perfectly (IMO).

    I like this mix till 6:02, than it becomes infinite random stuff.

    This happens a lot when I listen to EDM, the beggining of the mix (which "should" sound less heavy than the middle) is good, but the rest is simply annoying for me.

    Damn, there's definitely a lot of bang for buck there. I would last about ten minutes before promptly finding an exit though...just not into fetish, over-the-top music. Though bros gonna love this.

    Did I miss something? This is every "EDM" set ever since Sandro Silva's Epic was released.

    Yeah, I'm not hearing the "new" genre. Isn't this just a mix that incorporates tracks from multiple genres, or is there actually a new sound represented here?

    Fixed that a bit for ya... but yeah all I'm hearing is an EDM (urgh word) set where instead of playing a full 5 minutes of turd into another 5 minutes of turd the guy is playing small sections of tracks and playing a lot of them with very small transitions and they are not all just 4 to the floor... which is easy to do when most of the tracks sound exactly the same as each other. It's also what hiphop DJ's have been doing for a bazzillion years.

    I imagine there are a lot of dudes loving this... but they will grow up so, whatevs'

    That's just called 'Festival Trap' isn't it? Electro house at 70/140 BPM for moshing to. Not my taste, I must admit.

    Dancing > Moshing
