    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    But petty genre arguments grease the wheels of all discourse in electronic music. It's the meat and potatoes.

    Guilty as charged.

    The dubstep generic terminology made me burst blood vessels in my eyes when i first heard it.

    Its not that hard to be educated regarding your music choices. Some of us take this shit seriously

    And since when is all Hardstyle shit? Because it's not your thing?

    And yeah, I agree EDM is a stupid term. But I'm too lazy to spell out Electronic music which is a way better term.

    Hardstyle has always been shit. I generally have a rule to be open to all types of music and was introduced to it back in 2002. I spent time listening to it as I enjoy some hardcore, hard techno etc. I found the genre and the production in it pretty boring and a pointless evolution. Over the years I've hear some additional evolution in the sounds, again boring and pointless, both the more uplifting stuff and the darker stuff. There is plenty of good 150+ BPM music, this genre just feels vapid and without real merit.

    I've seen Classixx 4 times. Obviously they're better than Carnage or pretty much anything else at Sahara. I've seen Carnage once, music wasn't good but the crowd was insane so I want to see what the energy is like at Coachella. I've never seen Garrix, I don't like his music much, I just want to see what the hype is all about. Its not a list of my favorite artists, just a list of how I'm prioritizing the electronic artists that I want to see.

    Fatboy Slim is at the top of my list.
    When I saw his show in San Francisco it was amazing.

    Then Zedd and Glitch Mob.

    Not even close to as bad as Tiesto's set. It's amazing how far downhill he's gone.

    As for the hardstyle discussion earlier, I'm actually pretty excited that they booked Headhunterz this year. Saw him at Beyond Wonderland 2013 and even though I'm not overly fond of hardstyle, I actually had a really fun time during his set and the crowd seemed really into it. I'm interested to see what he brings to Coachella and how people will react to it.

    My favorite is that one guy - I forgot his name - maybe you can help

    He has headphones on
    He moves his hands back and forth on the turntables but it doesn't do anything
    He has a Mac Book Pro that everything is running off of
    He raises his hands every now and then and gets people to jump up and down
    The beat goes boom, boom , boom...then there's this high pitch beat...then theres some stupid line from a move that is said over and over again
    He doesn't actually play any instrument or even do anything other than change the volume

    O Yea I remember

    It's every f'n EDM act there is!

    F'n volume control guys...that's the ONLY thing they do at the show. Push play on their Mac Book and control the volume.

    Watch them at you 'favorite' act - they don't do ANYTHING at the show other than ACT like they are doing something. Use your brain and you'll see they do nothing...it's all an act and everyone watching it is too stupid to see that there's NOTHING going on that's real on the stage.

    Enjoy the music if you like, but don't be so stupid as to thing they are actually doing anything on stage other than put on an act. They press play on their Mac Book and the show starts....that's it....till they press stop.

    LOL @ Baily! Dude they are def doing more than volume control. Not much more but some Dj's do more than others. Think about it..Your a famous Dj touring the world of course you are going to take the time to think out your set and plan your mashups/buildups and you also may have a special light show designed to go with that set,its pretty common and normal man. Everyone in the Sahara is there to have a good time period. This isnt a house party where some dude is just diggin in the crates.

    I'm sure Baily "ain't being played for no fool" but Baily needs to understand that a lot more goes into DJing than just standing there and pressing play on your laptop. Baily is probably one of those people who thinks that Skrillex and Avicii are real DJ's.

    I can't stand any of that EDM shit...

    sounding like an old man, but I remember when people actually had to learn an instrument.

    and pah-lease ...I had artist passes for 3 years and stood on stage at some EDM sets to check them out...and all they ever did was press play on their Mac Books then act like they were pressing buttons and moving shit around....they didn't do anything, but the crowd bought it and that's what they all do. If you are ever back stage you'll see them setting up and most have a backup Mac Book in case they have any issues.

    Watch it next time they are 'moving their hands' notice nothing in the music changes.

    They make their 'tracks' ahead of time so they can press play and let the track play...they are like Milli Vanili....all look no substance...but you fools love the shit.

    keep eating it up...but if you turn your brain on and actually watch them...they don't do shit.

    Defend your love for the music if you like, but don't be so stupid as to think any of them are doing anything on stage other than acting.
