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...

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...

The art of Killing awesome Tracks:
At a point something slaps your ears and all of a sudden you're floating. Midsun's track Megathron did the same for me. It is filled with a bunch of things I love. The strange electronic sounds twist your brain but it's not glitchy, it's not chaotic. It's well organized and nicely paced on four on the floor beats. I would refer to it as uber-high energy progressive house. Everything is just fine until I have to mention the miraculous way of finding the track which is impossible to recall. It was a mere miracle. As I heard it, just as any other music junkie would do, the first thing was to find Midsun and to like / follow him as a sign of support and to get more awesome tunes, obviously. This is where the problem is. I didn't manage to find Midsun on any kind of social media. The record label is up on facebook but the average or the slightly above-average music consumer is very-very unlikely to follow a record label. No matter how brilliant they are, it is very unlikely for them to...

Minimal-Tech House and Techno takes on the world! But why?
An uprising takes place in Eastern-European countries. Romania could be considered one of the new wave pioneers with artists like Petre Inspirescu, Rhadoo, Ada Kaleh, Raresh and Horace Dan D just to mention a few. Before anyone would misinterpret what I'm saying, I'm totally aware of the presence of other big musical subcultures based on straight four on the floor beats like Detroit techno, the German tech scene and so on and so for. The only thing is Romania, amongst other nations, went crazy on this line. New venues appear every year and all of these are sold out with prices like 3 bucks for a water in a country where the average wage is about 500$. The other interesting thing is the significant role of the upper ten in the rise of the minimalistic culture. What are the reasons behind this huge success? I as a non-digger of this genre was fueled by the curiosity to find out what makes this kind of music so appealing to so many people worldwide. The situtation was obvious, for me...

The Glitch Mob’s “Love Death Immortality"
From a perspective I divide music into two categories. There is the sound of the underground and the the sound of the mainstream. Both has its pros and cons and it is damn difficult to have a sound that can be consumed easily and in the same time not to make it sound like a zillionth rip-off of the current mainstream wave. This is the very point where the style of the underground remains but also opens up for the non-diggers. A few years ago Skrillex blew up the dubstep scene, now Diplo took moombathon to a whole new level and there is The Glitch Mob holding the door handle. This album cloud be the blow for The Glitch Mob and for glitch as a genre to conquer the world. They have also managed to renew their glitch experience without turning the whole thing upside down. If you just hear it somewhere for the first time and you've heard Glitch Mob before you can guess that it is their work. Before we had into the world of the sounds let's make everything crystal clear about your music...

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...
