    Default The tyranny of 130

    Fuck house. Ban all new music at this tempo. Moratorium on 4 to the floor as well. Worse than rock backbeats and guitar solos. Tired and dull cliches stifling the ears of millions.

    Disapproval isn't enough. We need radical action. A new criminal justice bill.

    I think we should ban all music for five years. Just so we develop a taste for it again.

    Also to create a break in the sense of continuous evolution. To allow for a more radical and wrenching change.

    Evolution has stalled. There's just this gelatinous blob of 4 to the floor that's ponderously spreading, sliding under the doors and through cracks in the walls, consuming all genre and hope of innovation in its path and replacing it with the dull thud of the kick drum.

    The problem isn't house music, it's that there's no alternative worth shouting about.

    The only solution is to make something that's new and exciting.

    Has any house music or dance music successfully incorporated the drums of Trap/drill?

    You can love or hate Trap but that beat is the modern sound, and I wonder if it's penetrated these other genres (there was that EDM Trap thing wasn't there, I didn't dare listen to it)

    Like speed up trap drums

    Sample them like the breakbeats of yore

    But this is probably just a typical english music nerd fantasy

    House music, and techno, and bass, and all of these humdrum sounds at the same tempo doing more or less the same thing.

    Go to a reggae dance and you'll hear more rhythmic diversity in 30 minutes than you'll hear in the last 5000 hours of boiler rooms.

    DJing the culprit?

    Everything has to be mixable, meldable, mergeable in Traktor

    There's many reasons for this of course, but one of them is 120-130 is the 'preferred tempo' of the masses - close to average walking speed, the same tempo as the sound of applause, the heart rate of 'light' aerobic exercise.

    Im just saying that we can do better than homogenised gym music.
