    Windsor had a scene? Every time I've ever partied in Windsor, it's just bro's from Detroit trying to scam on what ever piece of ass they could find.
    I hear an 8hz sinewave can make a whole room of dubstep producers simultaneously stroke their beards.

    I can't speak for where you live but overall it hasn't killed anything. To me EDM is an overarching term for popular house music such as Guetta, LMFAO, Swedish House Mafia, Afrojack and all that kind of electro/dirty dutch 'pop' type sound. If anything it's united real house/techno lovers, partly in their hatred
    To me house music is stronger than ever if you know where to look.
    It's very much separate to the EDM 'scene' though. Unfortunately for you the promoter/club owner sounds like he's in it for the money rather than the music. They aren't all like that (not that bad anyway).
    As a positive it might end up bringing new people into the real scene eventually which will only make house stronger.

    Sounds like you need to find a new venue for your underground night. If the town is big enough for Diplo then surely there's somewhere else to play the music you love.

    I think the big pop electro thing has been good for the scene here in Sydney. Lots of people are growing out of it and searching for underground stuff.

    I feel like I agree with this post. I find it that House is the original genre to start it all, and that includes all of the modern styles of electronic music. However EDM I feel is made specifically to be played at a party or rave or dance setting. I'm the only DJ I know personally who still listens to actual house rather than just electro or glitch hop or progressive house. I'm not saying they're bad genres, but whatever happened to listening to house as just music. Like the good ol' days of Daft Punk and Justice?

    Yes Windsor had a scene, don't forget Richie Hawtin started off in Windsor and Detroit, he created a small scene before taking off to greater lands. Our scene has gone through it's ups and downs with different clubs and promoters, but it seems to have really stagnated in the past two years. I've noticed a switch towards more Pop/Electrouse which has overshadowed Techno and House. I'm curious to see if similar has happened elsewhere.

    Find a new club, throw an event, turn it into a weekly night. Takes a lot of work, but you said you've thrown a successful event before so you should know how it is for the most part.

    The mainstream dance music is ruining techno and house for sure. pretty soon Berghain will be playing dubstep (jokes jokes)
    But it is being ruined

    This is the outlook I've taken as well. If I'm playing at a more mainstream bar, I mix in some Tech House flavor for transitional-type mixes. People are much more receptive than they've been in the past. It's pretty fun.

    "Scenes" don't last forever. You think people are still bitching about how their favorite Disco club got bumped by some Punk Rock scene?
