My journey started when I heard "Tour de France" by Kraftwerk at the skating rink in the third grade. Then when I heard "Rockit off his album Future Shock by Herbie Hancock it was a done deal. I'm from Miami so of course Miami Bass was certainly an influence. In College I got my first set of turntables and spun at parties playing everything from Breakbeats to Jungle. Around the same time I got my first digital sampler and discovered more avant garde artists like Amon Tobin, Luke Vibert, and Squarepusher. These Days I have a bedroom studio and my set-up is one Technics 1200 for sampling and cuts. I use Reason and Ableton Live for my applications. I think all my music is shit, but hey what are you gonna do. Feel free to share as little or as much as you like... No judgement or haters here. Unless you like Skrillex. Then I'll give you a little shit

It all started with Calvin Harris- I'm Not Alone. I STILL dance every time that song comes on. Flashback, You Used To Hold Me, and more are pretty decent too. Deadmau5 is a favorite but I prefer his remixes most of the time. Rusko is another fav. Kaskade is pretty awesome. Had a couple dance partys get a little crazy when he comes on. My faves by him are Dynasty including the Dada Life Remix, 4am including the Adam K & Soha Remix), One Heart, Eyes, and Fire In Your New Shoes. Gonna shut up and dance now.

How could I NOT have gotten into electronic music? First off, my older sisters were ravers, but they didn't influence me until after I was into it. However, as a young person who loved Mortal Kombat, naturally I owned and loved the soundtrack for the movie. Also, at that time, Crystal Method and Prodigy were constantly on the radio, and I loved them. There was also the radio show at 11 on fridays or whatever on 99.1 HFS, called Trancemissions, which was often live club feed. It was over from there.. I just kept searching and kept searching. I like Dubstep, yes, but I'm more of a DnB/psytrance/funky house kid... I fucking love Drum n Bass! You gonna give me shit for liking happy hardcore, too? lol...I like it just a bit. I had all the Happy2bHardcore albums over a decade ago, and I don't listen to it much anymore, but it still holds a special place in my heart...

Yeah I agree Money... There are so many forum topics that don't spark any conversation! "What's your favorite ______?" And people just start listing, because, really, who the fuck wants to search through 50 pages of crap to read through a whole shit ton of dumb shit to find the few people who have something worthwhile to say. Then, on the other hand, there are all those stupid game posts, "do something to the person above/below/ you!" that end up with thousands of meaningless replies. So, I'd like to ask this question to you guys... How do you truly feel about dubstep? Give us a good example of dubstep, and defend it. Give me an example of some shitty dubstep, and tell us why. Good?

OH, DUDE! Have you heard the Splinter Cell soundtrack done by Amon Tobin?! I fucking love Squarepusher!

I'm still a die hard junglist. Ever since I heard my first Metalheadz track in 95. I still listen to a ton of drum and bass. Been digging Evol Intent and Skynet, and the Upbeats. If Amon Tobin has touched it I've heard it. I got to see Squarepusher followed by EL-P and GZA all on the same night in October at Moogfest it was fucking sick. The next night was Four Tet and Orbital. What a weekend.

Dude! I fucking LOVE jungle/drum n bass! Goldie was actually my first DnB tape ever, and I just happened to find it. Goldie was the guy who started the Metalheadz label, and he's also an actor, in movies like Snatch. If you do a search for him I'm SURE you'll recognize him! I go to Planet of the Drums EVERY chance I get (Dieselboy, AK1200, and DJ Dara)! Planet of the Drums is why I have a tiny bit of respect for Kid Rock. I was in Baltimore and a Planet of the Drums show, just went to the roof lounge to chill, and guess who comes walking up the stairs with all his body guards, just chillin at a drum n bass show... Kid fucking Rock... I don't like his music, but that gave me just a smidgen of respect for the man. NEXT MORNING we end up randomly leaving MD and moved to Denver, where, as soon as I got out of the car, there was a flyer for the Planet of the Drums here, and we went that weekend... It was WAY better here, then it was in Bmore...I love Evol Intent.

Oh I know who Goldie is. I was in DC in 97 and saw Goldie, Doc Scott, Ed Rush, and J Majik for the Metalheadz US tour. Same Trip I saw DJ Hype and DJ SS. I was in college when Jungle burst on the US scene so I was instantly fucking hooked, And yes I was a Raver. Jumbo pants and all. No fucking glow sticks though. I used to kick people out of my house parties if they cracked a glow stick. True story...

big ups!

Hadn't heard of Basshunter so I just checked it out. It sounds like pretty standard hard/acid house to me. I couldn't recommend any other artists in particular as that's not really my cup of tea. I'm sure someone else in the group may know. Honestly house is pretty ubiquitous now so you shouldn't have a hard time finding similar stuff. Just Install Spotify and use the related artists as a guide...

I use the free version. For me the adds are worth it compared to how much music I can access, and they're pretty easy to ignore unlike Pandora which is a pain is the ass...
