    Default Are my ears deceiving me?

    I've just had a listen to the Beatport Top 10 for House. Doesn't EVERYTHING (with a couple of exceptions, but a lot outside of that chart as well) sound like that festering Oliver Helden track, Gecko?

    If he hasn't already collaborated on it, then the track invariably shares a very similar synth in some variation or other, or if its lacking that, the bassline sound the same, if not a little cut up?


    Am i going mad? Or is this another formula that someone's discovered and everyone else is jumping on?

    I've never listened to a top 10 chart so I wouldn't know directly, but that's usually a trend. One song makes it huge, then a bunch of people make something similar until it's played out and then it happens all over again with something else. There was that year where every mainstream track sounded like Levels... *shudders*

    Beatport is especially bad with these Top 10s sounding all the same.

    Oliver whatever copied tchami's sound. Just saying.

    They call it future house...and once in a while they will throw the term "jackin" out there. Which really pisses me off... They dont even know what good jackin house is!
