Took look at the twitter profile for After and they are promoting it as a underground thing...nothing says underground like bottle service.
Saw Martin at Hakkasan last night in Vegas... Really fun set and hardly played anything to mainstream, he kept it entertaining. It was his first performance in Vegas but he killed it. He will have a really nice set in the Sahara.
The Sahara is what it is right now. There is always gonna be cheesy house music just gotta see the guys that mix it up and I think Martin is keeping it fresh at the moment.
He opened his set with the Animals remix... about 45 min later dropped the original version. They actually passed out masks of different animal faces for everyone lol.. but yes the crowd reaction was nice.
Sonicc has impeccable taste in dance music. Trust me.
I'm glad we could all come to a common understanding.
2013 = Coverchella
2011 = Perfectchella
anyone else calling shenanigans with this animals track? I find it very odd that a 17 year old kid would make a track as popular as this, let Hardwell and GTA initially take credit for it, then claim it was his months later...smells like some Danny Avila bs.
Is there a board where you people with lazy musical tastes can discuss "The next big thing" in boring edm? Does DJ Mag have a forum?
Certain songs they get so scratched into our souls
He dosent know how to mix tho
The original argument involved the place of Garrix in the EDM scene. It's been concluded that Hardwell is the current #1 DJ in the world based upon his podcasts, productions, residencies, and strong fan base. And Garrix is poised to be the future of the genre.
If you have any concrete arguments against the legitimacy of these statements please share them. If not, please proceed to act like a simpleton/ hipster/ wanna be dance music fan.

They do share similarities. Nadal is often criticized for his brash, loud, and (recently) aggressive style of tennis. There are tennis purist crybabies who want the dainty, point construction based tennis of yesteryear to come back. They are the ones who fail to realize that the defense/movement and big banging style is here to stay.
EDM is very much the same... There are crybabies who claim that the most successful DJs are cheesy, don't have any substance, blobbity blobbity blobbity...
It's a tired opinion that's been regurgitated decade after decade by hipster/posers and aging "it was better back in the day" fans. Big Room house is here and it's what sells tickets and gets people on the dance floor.
Amongst today's DJs, I believe that Hardwell has been the best at balancing the podcast/DJ set/Productions formula in becoming the #1 DJ in the world (according to DJ Mag). I understand that this may not be everyone's viewpoint and I'm not saying that DJ Mag has godlike authority. What I am saying that in today's EDM scene, Hardwell has brought the festival sound to the masses while not catering to the dance radio crowd. He's earned the respect through his DJ sets, which are often the standout mainstage sets at the world's largest festivals. He's the best among the big name DJs.
If anyone wants to slam his style of music, please provide specifics. Don't hash out some hipster "cheese" response or some bullshit, sappy, reminiscent "back in the day" grumble.
