So yeah, I've been somewhat busy/lazy for the time being, namely due to work and desire to sleep in on weekends. Also, my girlfriend was over for an extended duration on Friday so my valuable blogging time was spent cuddling up to her.
Anywho, I've recently realized that my love for metal is slowly being overshadowed by the awesomeness that is Dubstep and Progressive House. While metal is still awesome in most aspects, my yearning for a "catchier" tune remains. For the past few months, I've been listening to the likes of Mindless Self-Indulgence, deadmau5 and Skrillex (A very good band and two fine artists if I may say so!)
Mindless Self-Indulgence has been around since the 90's and still keep to their catchy, yet somewhat strange ways as is evident in a comparison between their debut Album and their newest album "You'll Rebel To Anything". High pitches, dirty lyrics, tight tunes and upbeat beats are to be expected from this band. (Plus, I can safely say that their music video for "Shut Me Up" is quite plainly pants-on-head retarded.)
deadmau5, pronounced "ded-mows", the second artist I mentioned, is a progressive house artist, well known by most techno-heads (Is that even a real term?) Though supposedly mainstream, deadmau5 still manages to keep producing fresh beats which he prefers, which in a sense make them entertaining for his listeners. Music is really only good when someone makes it the way they want. Nudge nudge, mainstream pop!
Regardless, deadmau5 is a great example of an artist who makes what he wants, and not what butthurt fans want.
Finally, Skrillex! Well, all I can say is that his drops are more exciting than the time I finally got a deep voice.
So, who here has some techno or electro artists they listen to who I may enjoy? Share some opinions in the comments, and perhaps some others may discover a new musical taste, or an inspiring artist. Better yet, if you do produce your own music, just post a link to a soundcloud/etc here and I'll check it out!
I'm out. There'll more than likely be a post tomorrow while I'm bored shitless at Tafe.
