Aw, now I feel all embarrassed again.

Keeping on subject, is it me or is there a large amount of Hip-Hop Modern and Miscellaneous tracks in the Top 30?

It feels good to be stuffed by oneself. It is an ego-feed within itself.

I met an actual musical genius once. He was a total asshole and he had pants with different colors on each leg.

You could only understand why Tiesto is a "genius" by your definition if you saw him live. I don't even like his music, but there's a solid reason why he's regarded as one of the best djs in the world.

I figured most of the appeal for his concerts was the giant soundsystems and lightshows, not his fantastic mixing skills.

Deadmau5 knows how to give a performance, if you ask me.

Number 1 was nice, but not good enough for #1. Too blah generic. Pyramid was alright. Number five was a total refresher from the techno. I loved it. But um... The ones I didn't mention just seemed like songs I heard before. Just with like, slightly changed melodies.

I like how we actually got discussion going here.
At Gravey, I wonder if you caught my "*giggles*" on the last page. :p

Sirdangalot5: sound systems and light shows still are pretty worthless if the music performance is lacking.

And on your comment about deadmau5, It's worth noting that he doesn't always do DJ sets, he actually performs his music live with these touch things and everything. I like it. :3
On that note, I'm not implying you claimed otherwise, I just wanted to drop in a note about that.

Yay, new tops soon.

Likewise deadmau5 is another talented DJ (although I dont like his music either). The reason why they are so amazing is because they know how to control a crowd. It may sound stupid on paper, but one can only really understand when you immerse yourself at a live show.

It's like a conductor in an orchestra.

Well.. You kinda' have to don't you or everyone's just gonna' walk out? Tbh, I find it pretty hard not to get caught in the emotion that being at a concert gives you, even if the performance is pretty shit. I dunno', being around all the people in the dark staring up into the brightly lit stage with strobes and all other shit going on. It's pretty hard not to get caught in that moment.

I've only ever been to death metal shows though so I'm not sure if what I'm saying counts..

Nope =).

He's comparing you to the likes such of Basshunter and Tiesto which seeminly have been established as trite producers by him. it's a thinly veiled insult even if intended not to be, in the same sense that supersteph or whomever was calling you a genius is over-glorification.

You are not very intelligent if you truly think this. Business =/= Talent. ESPECIALLY true in the music world. it's pretty easy to market a good looking caucasian male who writes about broken hearts and plays the same pentatonic licks that haven't changed over the last several decades. I'm not saying this dude is a bad musician, but he's not making any breakthroughs or performing complex works that categorize him as a genius. Now maybe I'm wrong about Tiesto and Basshunter, they might have pioneered dance music, I don't know. they could be geniuses in sound synthesis, maybe. But your logic for calling them geniuses is terrible, and it's akin to saying McDonalds makes great hamburgers just because they've sold billions.

So, they're all actually remixes.

I see some known names in there.

#1 sounds pretty rad to me, not sure I'm too much of a fan of that kind of 'swing' beat though.
#2 is just normal, as F-777 get top 5 every time he submits something. Track sounds pretty messy here and there, and the structure, as he mentions, is a bit... odd.
#3 sounds very generic and badly mixed to me... and by badly mixed I mean terribly mixed. It's the complete typical NG techno/trance song. =/
#4 xKore rocks my socks, even though I've heard better from him.
#5 Why, a video game remix. This one sounds rather well done though.

All in all I think #3 is the least deserving.
