Bottom post of the previous page:

I bet a lot of nowadays pop music has been done by the big names. They lose the time to produce more than 2-3 productions of their own, which is understandable. I don't think they have the time to experiment either, they just want to stay relevant and make relevant dance music / generic but effective. That's why less know guys make "better" music in our eyes :mrgreen:
Very very true, and i guess on a more basic level, it's very hard to balance Djing and producing, cos at the same time you're focusing on your set, and trying to be creative with that, aswell as trying to be creative with music, and if you're emerging stars like NO_ID, i think they havent released anything since LALO because of what i just said, as well as the fact that they need to release nothing but quality now that theyre with axtone, and trying to follow up LALO is hard...

NO_ID can take all the time they want. The quality and detail in their axtone remix was unreal, and obviously takes time.

Yeah, I think going through demos is what "crate digging" is for us listeners. I still would like to start and look for some lesser know funky house again, but I obviously won't blame him if he can't.

Still, he should

Too damn right, production wise they are some the producers I admire most. Really can't wait to see what they have in store for us.
+1000, proves my point, they uphold such high quality

I will say though that need to stop recycling sounds, in their last 4-5 tracks its been the same kick, percussion, fx (sweeps and stuff) & similar synths. Hopefully they have some new elements in their coming tracks

I think that's really sad. Music has to have a soul and shouldn't be a generic product for the mass.

But sadly, that's how it works :(

While they make music for fame and money, they shouldn't forget to do it for the love of the music, too. At least a bit.

It seems like Alesso, Calvin Harris and Theo Hurts got in the studio together:

so last night I went to see Alesso. He played the usual stuff from the last month. Same structure, same bootlegs, etc... He really needs to work a lot in his sets... for example check his mash of Greyhound and In My Mind... it doesnt work live... too much bangers along the setlist...
he played a couple of ID's.
the highlights were his intro,Nillionaire Rework, Pressure mashup and Lose Myself remix
