If you even knew a small amount about music or bothered to pick up an instrument you would realize that electronic music is only similar in the way that its a frequency...I listen to everything and literally every fucking type of music that stimulates my brain which music is supposed to do BUT electronic music is heavily borrowed from everything and it doesn't have much creativity or "soul" in it. For someone that claims to stand for your music, I'm surprised you haven't found or realized that electronic music does follow a strict set of frequencies and beats.

Shame the fuck on you mod, do your research, and not ones that support your illogical opinion, which is what this is...opinion

Apparently you haven't been exposed to Deep House or IDM. One being all about soul, the other about being creative to the point of making your head feel like exploding.

Sir, a fetus singing inside of a womb is no proof against what was stated. I'm glad you made enough effort in choosing the theme from house md though.

People say that about every genre, no matter how vast or varied. There's no changing it. What's worse is people who insist that any music genre is not music. No matter how much I hate a song or artist, I'm not so cripplingly brain damaged that I would say such a stupid thing about any sort of music.

A lot of DnB and liquid funk actually DOES sound the same.

Most of it generates from small edits of the Amen Break.

That fuckin' break has been everywhere too, still is everywhere as well. Hilarious how one sample can go so far, definitely shows the supposed "originality" of older producers really is no different than of those today.


taking the internet seriously is the biggest sin one could commit on a forum.

That's used for a lot of other things, but yeah, DnB uses it an awful lot.

You very very obviously have absolutely zero fucking idea whatsoever how imensely difficult and tedious it is to make music.

This is what you were talking about,

i'm talking about music theory,i never mentioned anything about the difficulty of electronic sound programs

considering how they don't use music notation aka what you use to transcribe music theory i think it's pretty valid

They have a common thing, so they must be grouped together.

Most of them arent related though, or even sound alike. No one regards 'electronic' as a genre.

teach me to be good at debating like you!! is it the scare quotes or the ad hominem that'll make me the best?

this isn't a debate,this thread topic is opinion based "electronic music sounds the same". but electronics music really doesn't use notation ergo music theory

I'm sorry, but you're acting like an autistic. I don't even mean that as an insult, I know an autistic guy who argues about stuff like this and wont listen to logic.
