A Healthy Approach to EDM
The problem is, EDM has become such a huge complex phenomenon, that describing it with white and black is almost impossible, yet many music fans and journalists are putting it into one of these boxes. The last drop in the glass for me to lay down these words was an article on Electronic Beats titled "Does playing vinyl legitimize EDM DJs?" In order two answer this question, first of all, we have to be crystal about what EDM is. Contrary to the popular belief EDM is not just BigRoom House and Trap. EDM stands for Electronic Dance Music, which covers anything from Synthwave to Dub-Techno. Drum and Bass, Jungle, Goa-Trance and Splittercore are no different as they all fall under the same umbrella. So where all this confusion came from? You can't say that a Transporter is a VW, but a Polo is notIt's simple, people like to believe what they hear, rather than doing a bit of research into the field. So I did. EDM emerged around 2010 when electronic music had really made its foothold in...

Airfield Festival Romania 2015
Things are getting crowded over here and I've got something growing strong in me. That very thing is the feeling that there's no need to go abroad to see the all the artists on my bucket list. Airfield Festival is another addition to the Romanian festival scene that is working hard to make my head spin when trying to recall all the gigs I've been to. Somehow it slipped underneath my radar last year, and quite frankly, I didn't hear anyone speaking about it, maybe I know the wrong people (my mom always told me so). Since the first edition was held in 2014, it seems that the crew had the time to figure out the magic trick, or the money to pay the right agency to do a decent social media campaign, so the wannabe journalist can get another target lock. It feels like the organizers don't have the treasure of Atlantis like the peeps making "Untold Festival" or the enormous army of Booha and Boiler trained professional organizers like "Electric Castle", but they do have some cool stuff up...

No Glitch for Romania
The Glitch Mob is the thing right now, taking its foothold on the commercial festival scene. After tweaking glitchy sounds for more than a decade, Edit, Ooah and Borela have found their way to the hearts and ears of the masses. They're playing gigs all over the world, their latest album, "Love Death Immortality", was a huge success, so it is safe to state that The Glitch Mob have made something new that became an instant success. Yet at Electric Castle, Romania's major festival, people at the main stage were leaving an hour into their gig. Why's that strange? Because the place was packed with people both at Parov Stelar and Fatboy Slim, in the pouring rain. During Rudimental every square meter near the main stage was packed so tightly that one couldn't fall over even if drunk as a lord. With Netsky it was the same. So if it wasn't raining and The Glitch Mob was doing a very decent set, then why was it so unpopular? Of course, they were still playing to thousands of people, but...

Homosexuality and Electronic Dance Music
Joel Zimmerman is well known for his hilarious online rants, for a good reason. From time to time he nails things point blank. Ten Walls have proved Joel's theory about the gravitational pull of the dance scene, by firing shots at the gay community that contributed massively to the creation of the dance music industry as we know it. "The Loft" was the first dance club ever, where the first DJ mixer of all times have been used. Naturally, The Loft was a gay club, so as the Paradise Garage, not to mention Larry Levan, the resident DJ of Pradise Garage, who was a pioneer of DJing and prodcuing. He was also the mentor and good friend of Frankie Knuckles (the grandfather of house). Before you start wondering about the sexual orientation of Larry, he was also homosexual. To put it in a simple way, the disco scene had created the spark that blew up the electronic dance culture worldwide some ten years later. 30 years isn't a long time, but it's enough to make an award winning producer, who...

Electric vs Untold
There was a single major festival called "Peninsula", serving a wide range of audience. As demand for electronic music grew, the lineup followed. By 2013 Peninsula became an electronic music festival, but by then it was clear that it's doomed. The self-proclaimed journalist is happy Luckily the backup came the very same year in the form of a brand new festival called "Electric Castle", shocking the national scene in the best possible way. The medieval castle spiced with classy electronic vibes took the lead, becoming THE major festival in Romania. Now it's 2015 and we got another newbie knocking on the door of the festival goers. "Untold Festival" is in the ring, already flexing its muscles for the festival showdown. The self-proclaimed journalist is happy because it's show time in many ways. It's show-time partly because both events have internationally recognized headliners, partly because there will be two big festivals in a town that barely has 500.000 residents and partly...

Art or Money 3 / Demand and Supply
As electronic music grew from a basement in the suburbs of Chicago to a worldwide phenomenon, reshaping the dance culture and industry, it became the breeding ground of many controversies and debates. If you're reading this article you probably know a lot about it, even if you were living under a rock on Mars in the last 30 years. The screams of fanboys and the angry mumbling of deep-heads can be heard from other galaxies as well, I suppose. listening to the repetitive sound of Satan There's a lot of talk on the commercial vs. underground topic. Non-music people or if you will it put that way, common people refer to the underground as a dangerous place where the kids your parents warned you about meet to do drugs and other socially "unacceptable" and "dangerous" things while *listening to the repetitive sound of Satan*. On the other hand there is the commercial bunch, who in the eyes of the "underground" are some Regular John's and Janes listening to something that is barely music...

Why do Music Heads hate Commercial?
There are many definitions, but my favorite is the definition of Marilyn Manson, who says that art has to be a question mark. I'd add that art has to push boundaries and to do so it has to grant you a freedom of choice. What do I mean by freedom of choice? Here comes the tricky part, and most probably the only part, the core of my idea about art and its effects. I will start with the very basics to build up this idea from the ground up, in order to be as crystal as possible. We, humans start off in with a blank sheet. We have a functional brain that is perfectly useless without inputs. As we get more and more of these inputs that transform into information on the way will create our perception of the world. First we get simple ones, like breasts mean food, Lego Duplo is fun and if we kick the wall our legs will hurt and so on. Later, just like a good MMORPG, everything gets harder. The inputs will get more and more complicated, slowly but surely creating what Reggie Watt calls a...

Hip Hop in the spotlight: Featuring Mally -
Since then everybody is making hip hop for a whole bunch of different reasons. The movement that once took violent gangs like the "Black Spades" off the streets to transform them into one of the most influential organization on the scene (Zulu Nation) has turned Iggy Azaela. Or not. Despite the flood of flashy mainstream Hip Hop, the voice of criticism and self-expression is still out there. Guys like GucciGhost or Hospin are the voices of the black community criticizing both themselves and the system in order to highlight problems, to solve problems, and to entertain. Despite having all these thoughts in my head I had no intention in writing an article, but I ran into Mally's single "Shine". "Shine" is where commercial hip hop should be. It sounds damn good, it's addictive, it's not spoiled, it's cliché free, and it also has something to tell (The Sundance Kid also deserves a patting on the back for his work on the track). After hitting repeat for like a million times, I was in to...

What Happened to the Electronic Scene in 2014?
After an Ultra Miami headliner, Avicii was hospitalized, Joel Zimmerman aka Deadmau5 took his place to rick-roll tens of thousands of people at the main stage. While everyone was expecting BigRoom and "Wake Me Up" the mau5 dropped a heavy parody of Martin Garrix's "Animals". If that wasn't enough he decided to go full techno for his entire set. The set was shared all over and everyone who knows the scene a little, was bursting in tears laughing his ass off. Well played Joel, well played. 2. Dillon Francis invades social media with "clips" that'll make you shit your pants while ROFL. He comes up with the most unexpected outbursts in the most various ways. Even when he sounds serious he ruins it in the last couple of seconds. GEENIUS. (See the best one's on his facebook) 3. Steve Aoki tries to sue Wunderground only to make people laugh harder at him. Wunderground's response to Steve's Lawyer is as hilarious as it could be. 4. Traktor launches its new flagship model the S8....

Art or Money 2 / The Fear of the Unknown:
There's a never ending debate about what should be in focus for the music biz. Art or Money? Some are surfing on waves of money while some need a daytime job to make a living. There is a gap of creativity between these groups regardless of the fact that not all super rich DJ/producers are sellouts and not all bedroom producers are making gold. In the previous article lines were clearly drawn between art driven and "McDonald's" music with the help of Lifelike. Now that we see the tip of the iceberg it is time to stick our heads in the shallow water in order to capture fragments of something that might be really big. We could only guess the size underneath the surface. The first article ended with questions about what should be the correct path for a DJ or a producer to balance his craft to earn some money and to express musical visions at the same time. I realized that the best way to map this uncharted topic is to talk to producers and DJs from each side. So I found a couple where...

Art or Money? Artist or sellout?
These days it's about the money, according to some. These people also like to over-emphasize the fact that all is worse than ever. It's not. By looking at the history of music there was no era when there weren't any interests crossing the path of musicians. In the Middle Ages music had to serve the Church, later on it was serving / obeying the system, or it just simply had to meet the expectations of a given era. Today's western musicians are free of the grasp of these forces, but they have a new element to deal with. By the 21st century money became the most powerful unifying force for mankind and music alike. Money gives one the tools to make a living and the amount of income is a very powerful feedback. Yet money is only a mere tool which aids an artistic industry that experiences freedom like never before. Some of this artistic freedom comes from scientific discoveries and advancements that are constantly demolishing outadted governing principles. Money buys software, hardware...

Outstanding game soundtracks Ep02:
I don't have an Xbox One and neither my close friends so I was only watching reviews about the game and almost all the reviewers emphasized the great soundtrack. That was enough for me to watch some gameplay footage on youtube. As I heard Tensnake while watching someone cruising on the coastal roads of France I knew that the soundtrack really has what it takes to make you forget about your desk and to feel the stitches on the dash of the Purrari. There was only one question left which was if the soundtrack can stand on its own as a pack of delighting sound drug. Despite having the positive answer in my head I had to make sure. So I did. Right now I'm listening to the soundtrack for the 4th time which has a significant meaning in the case of someone like me who listens to so much new music daily that there is very little time to replay older tracks. The soundtrack really has what it takes to make you forget about your desk The selection of music goes all the way from indie rock to...

Gangsta House
There is really not much out there on the web about Gangsta House but the sound. A few days ago I was on the fourth tab on Google's search results for Gangsta House but I couldn't really find anything but mixes and songs. As days was passing by and I skipped a few on writing the article. After picking up the thing again three days later I found significantly more hits on the topic, so the scene is evolving by the passing day and the duo responsible for the whole phenomena are marching towards fame. The French DJ – Producer duo Amine Edge & Dance are the guys to look for The French DJ – Producer duo Amine Edge & Dance are the guys to look for. Considered the pioneers of G-House or Gangsta House they have already made an Essential Mix on Pete Tong's highly popular radio show. Of course they have a huge underground prominence by now in France and the UK. I'm very curious to see them a couple of months later if the style gets adopted by the commercial scene. If this happens I...

Beatman & Ludmilla
My musical life took a sudden turn when my aunt who was a teenager at that time moved to us. I was listening to tons of music with her like The Prodigy, Pink Floyd and many others. Jean Michel Jarre became my favorite. I was 3-4 years old. The sounds of his albums had a great impact on me. Then I turned eight and my parents have brought our first TV. From that point I was listening to any commercial music that was on the screen. That was in 1998 – 1999. I was listening to virtually anything except for folk music Jean Michel Jarre became my favorite. I was 3-4 years old As time was passing by, I was listening to Britney Spears, Eminem, Scooter, Dj Alligator, Dj Bobo etc. Jean Michel Jarre fell out of my view. After finishing elementary school, I started to attend parties and started to drink as well. In my teenage years I just thought that partying is about drinking and getting laid. Than the day that changed my life forever had arrived. I just turned 19, I have finished High School...

I've been to a loads of places and I've heard tons of DJs playing. I bet that you're in quite the same situation and for the most of the time you know what is going to happen. You can tell the direction the music is heading to, you feel the length of the loop in advance and you also know when the drop comes. When you go to a big festival with famous headliners than the thing is different. That's because those headliners that people use to adore are no DJs, they are producers forced by the EDM scene to act like DJs. They play their own tunes a zillion times in zillions of versions. Sometimes you hear the original, sometimes you hear a good remix and sometimes you hear a shitty remix. The bottom line is that they are not disc jockeys. But then who can be considered a good DJ? But then who can be considered a good DJ? A good DJ makes art out of the mixing of the tracks. The way one track follows the other and the feel of hearing parts from different tracks simultaneously gives the...

Music Defines
The love of music is a completely different level though. I guess the difference between the two sides lies in the level of consciousness in one's approach towards music. We all need something that vibrates on the frequency of our very souls This consciousness is observable in one's habit of filtering music. Why is that important? Why shouldn't we listen to anything that comes our way? What should be the points of relevance when labeling a tune cool or shitty? Since music is a very subjective thing it might sound cruel to talk about standards which could be used as guidelines for one to label music. There is one thing thou that no one can deny. Our thoughts are driving our lives. They defines us and our actions which shape the world that we're living in. Since humanity has gained the ability to think we should pay attention to every little detail that impacts our lives. Music is one of those "details" that can and will influence the behavior of people. It can be composed to trigger...
