  • Is Electronica and Hip hop now in popular mainstream music?

    Do you think Electronica and hip hop has made to the music mainstream? And who are the best artists and songs in this genre? Amongst the younger lot I particularly like Pretty lights and their new song, "Around the Block."

    Re: Is Electronica and Hip hop now in popular mainstream music?

    Idk I like pretty lights ok. His live shows are waaaaay more intense than the recordings. I like Nero, La Roux, PANTyRAiD, Modestep, Flux Pavillion, Blue Foundation, Rusko, etc.

    Of course you can't really get down without Skrillex and Bassnectar.

      Re: Is Electronica and Hip hop now in popular mainstream music?

      Hip hop definitely has in my opinion, and electronica is now on its way there. Looks at Swedish House Mafia and Daft Punk for example - both have been around for years, no huge radio hits except for the past few months. A few more hit songs from them, we will see other electronic artists being played on the radio.

      As for hip-hop, that has been mainstream for years. Most of pop music is hip-hop in my opinion; look at Nicki Minaj (Her pop songs, not her rap songs...they still have rap in them though), Macklemore....etc etc

        You have a very young music mind!! Minaj!!!!! Hahahahah that is pop music man, mainstream garbage.... Listen to an artist called del the funky homosapien, or MF DOOM, that's real hip hop homie

          Del the funky homosapien AKA Deltron 3030, he messin around with Gorrilaz these days. But yeah there's a difference b/t Rap and Hip-hop: Mos Def, Tribe Called Quest, ect. is Hip-Hop. Rap can go Biggie, Dre, Eminem and T.I. now we end up with stuff like Nikki Manaj and 2 chainz. Hip-Hop is the genre and Rap is the sub-genre. Like Metal is to Rock.

          I personally like Hip-Hop better

              I know what I refer to is that rap was once great and I don't think manij is anything close to what what rap should be (TBH I have never heard more than 30 seconds of anything by her) Use this analogy, MTV once showed music videos now it just reality junk. It's not Music Television as they claim.

              Yes I know I get lost by a few years (I still consider the Chronic 2001 new sometimes lol) I know when he messed with gorrilaz. As for Pandora yes I stream it while playing. My top 5 hip-hop stations are Immortal Technique, NaS, Dre, 2Pac and Gang starr. (I also downvote anything Jay-z. I just dont like his work)

              Other than that I stream Dubstep and Rock during UE (I like Classical music too but for some reason it just doesn't go with the game lol). I listen to pretty much anything but I don't listen to pop and I definitely don't listen to country... (sorry country fans, I tried but I can't get into it. But I will say I enjoy Jonny Cash)

              Also, I saw a UE ad on pandora hehehe. If UE, Pandora and Kik could all come together into one that would rule!

                  Re: Is Electronica and Hip hop now in popular mainstream music?

                  I know it's becoming mainstream when everyone keeps posting incorrect things about it. Especially when people amalgamate it all under one genre. Pretty Lights has been around for a long time, wouldn't exactly call him new. Keep in mind that Glitch Hop has been around a ridiculously long time, this stuff isn't new either. Anyone remember RJD2? Tipper? Also, there are even sub-genres within Glitch Hop now. One of which that is going to blow up like Trap did - Neuro Hop. Honestly, the music industry is cyclical; right now you have Chris Brown layered on top of template-driven house production and it's uninspired garbage. Next, commercial Hip Hop will start to gain some ground by using glitch beats. Even though London has been doing Garage for YEARS. Mainstream to me pretty much signifies the death of creativity within a genre. When Dubstep gained popularity it died, because every producer and his mother tried to achieve success through the same sounds. Watching Borgore, one of the ORIGINAL producers with a hard (unfairly coined Brostep) sound, starting working with Smiley Virus, I gave up. Electro died when Ed Banger left the scene. Finding good music has become pretty difficult these days.

                    Though I am not as informed in the culture of these genres as you are, I would have to agree with your last statement involving the death of culture in music, or at least being pretty hard to find good new music.

                      So well written Paul.
                      Trap kinda took off in the Bay Area, but I don't think it'll do to well. The event I went to was 16+ when flosstradamus came out here. 16+ events suck so bad cuz all the teenie boppers come out wearing their "I love Molly" tshirts, overdosing by fuckin 10pm cuz " I don't feel it yet, I need more!!"

                      Dubstep got ruined when people like skrillex, deadmau5, and Nero hit the radio. It was a badass genre when it had the reggae feel, but now I can just turn my garbage disposal on and have a platinum hit. Deadmau5 live is a joke, what a tool. In Miami ultra 2012 he built up a drop for what seemed like 4-5 minutes, right at the peak this fool made it seem like his computer crashed and he just walked off!!! Oh man he got booed hardcore.

                      I just mentioned borgore to my girl and she was pretty disgusted Paul!!! She just played me a song called ice cream, hahahahhaahahahah

                        I like my non-hipster approach to music - you like what you like and don't care about the rest. Be it Old, New, Known, Unknown, "Killed" or "Alive".

                        Then again... I'm one of those people who listens to Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries, Frank Sinatra, KPOP, Dubstep (yes I like Skrillex), Country, Heavy Norwegian Death Metal, etc with all in one playlist.
