Uh... I'm not sure what to educate with since I'm out of the loop myself.....
The Fuse-In thing was a "concert/event" down in Detroit that lasts 3 days:
Anyway, I'm used to the days of The Chemical Brothers, Orbital, Oakenfold, BT,
and stuff... the new crap is all "rappy" and weird with funky sound effects and weird morphed phrases and stuff. The level of "hardcore ooonce" and total reliance on a rediculous pace of 140bpm (or more) is just stupid... it was just a big mosh pit instead of anything that resembled what I remember to be a rave. Yeah, stuff by Future Sound of London and BT may be 140 bpm, but they don't rely on a pounding bass note on each beat to get deliver the tune. Really, 140 massive bass hits going on for 4 straight hours sucks.
I guess it didn't help that this was Detroit - one of the most ghetto cities of all time. It also didn't help that I was only slightly buzzed and didn't get any wierd drugs in my system
But really, I think Techno has gone downhill. Anyone and their moms (oh wait, women can't be techno DJs) is now some spinster/sampler and they all use their ghetto software to make ghetto beats. All I have to say about techno now is..... :ugh:
I'll stick with listening to my Lynyrd Skynyrd
