Thread: can i talk about music for a second?

    Default can i talk about music for a second?

    my mind just wonders and i thought i'd drop it here, so pardon me if this has been discussed ....

    i'm thinking about the idea of synthpop becoming main stream and artists crossing over and that sort of thing; wondering why more of our artists don't make songs that are club friendly, or actually more DJ friendly. As i've listened to songs over the past years i notice alot of musicians count the tempo and start the lyrics right in the beginning. While this is a radio seller, it doesn't really go over well with DJ's use (imho)

    any artists consider making versions that are DJ friendly? allowing intro mixing time, places for Dj sampling and that sort of thing?

    i think songs of this nature would be easily acceptable by clubs, which to me is where alot of music is introduced. when it comes to music it really is all about the clubs and the younger people who buy the music anyway right .... any thoughts on this? i really am interested in some feedback on the concept. (not that it's new by anymeans .. just seems to have lost it's way in modern day)

    I think you are 100% right. Intros are very important. I can't tell you as a DJ, how many times I've had to try to work in a song with no intro, and why it was these particular songs that got requested at the most inopportune times. Remixes are important, but an alternate version of a song which features an intro isn't only plausible... sometimes, it's crucial.

    im not sure which synthpop your listening to, but alot of the stuff i hear has just that formula for DJ mixing - or at least the remixes do....

    Guess we're listening to different music altogether.

    Jag i hear you on this... and i'm not even a dj and it frustrates me, personally as a music enthusiast. why are some of these synthpop bands so close minded about sticking to a cookie cutter formula and not willing to stray outside from the typical 80s synthpop?

    i've said it a hundred times on this board alone.... its my opinon that if bands who do synthpop want any sort of attention or spins in a "mainstream" (cos what is really mainstream these days, honestly) environment; clubs, radio, etc. they need to start taking chances and experiement with other various styles and elements in thier music.

    i work for a label, and one of the first things we do is get the band to provide various types of remixes of thier single, that we use to give to dj's :white label 12''s for clubs and specialty radio mixes; hip hop, trance, house... you name it.

    It makes your music accessable to a much broader scope of people and if they like what they hear, they'll keep asking for it, and it can possibly turn into to sales or a gig somewhere.

    just my thoughts

    efreak and Swank ... glad someone else gets it ...

    for me it just makes sense, these clubbers today are very picky about the music, not just the sound but the way it is presented, songs have to flow together ... despite the fancy equipment that can pick up a beat and lay it down seamlessly. Clubbers i think are probably the most captive audience you can get (there's no channel to change - lol) And to reach that captive audience i think you have to grab the attention of the one person they're listening to - the DJ. Not just making tracks that a DJ likes but can also use.

    I'm in totally agreement with Swanks comments, that there have to various versions ... applicable to all outlets. Remixes are definitely tasty. But it's the extended, the club, the dub that is getting lost, and i just think that these are necessities and can be a vital part of an artists success.
