I began listening to techno long before I started going to raves, and some people simply stopped talking to me because of the music I was listening to. I was acting just the same, with the same enthusiasm I used to carry (and, in large part, still do) for other genre's.

Still, because of my specific new tastes, I was outcast by many (often in our first time meeting). My more extreme friends dubbed me a "raver faggot" and simply ditched me.

So, where do you stand on the genre?

I like it for the ability to build suspense and being able to going nuts while moving like a retard /dancing/

Your friends ditched you because you started listening to different music?

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say they weren't really good friends to begin with.

I love techno. I study jazz at University and have found techno music some of the hardest music to make. listen to Venetian snares. that will show everyone. and also, the whole Music made on computers isnt music. people who say that are narrow minded, and most likley like the new GnR album.

Techno is fun to listen to and it is definitely fun to be on a ton of drugs at a rave, but it takes nowhere near the amount of skill to make a techno song that it does to make a jazz song. You can even argue that it has the same amount of human emotion and feeling in each song that an artist makes, but the amount of technical skill required to create a trance or drum & bass song is nothing compared to that of a jazz great.

I kick it with DJ's daily, I go to raves frequently, but Tiesto or Armin Van Buuren don't have sh*t on Coltrane or Cobham.

^^ depends on how in depth you want your techno to be. you can spend hours and hours just making 6 sedonds of music. but in the end, its not about whats harder or better. its about what you like, and if you dont like it, keep that to yourself because people do like it.

My bad, I thought this was a thread about technicality between techno and the other music genres.

But don't think I'm not into techno, I went to Together As One for new years... and the LoveFest Afterparty... AND ETD.Pop.

Armin Van Buuren & ATB kick ass...

Nah, don't worry about it. All that specific genre stuff is a matter of opinion and not a lot is really clear cut. It's just a general guide.

Pendulum.

I know its not techno, but they use a lot of electronic stuff.

I sometimes listen to "chip-music", after i saw that Timbaland steals a lot from the commodore/atari/etc scene. I heard about them after heard 50 Cent's Ayo Technology and i thought that the background keyboard thing sounds so wicked that i have to look up how its done. The only info i have found that he stole that from some "chip-music."
Later i kinda recreated it in guitar pro. Was a bitch to made.

Electronic Music doesn't necessarily = techno

This is a good video and helps you pinpoint exactly what you like so you know what to look for.

Pendulum will aways be one of my absolute favs. Their last album was very meh, but I saw them at Together As One the other night, and they killed. I was at their stage for the New Years Eve countdown, and I was quite happy with them. Boosted my roll right the **** up.

The difficulty in making elctronic music is not rhythmic or harmonic (though those are hard aswell), but getting the right sound. I also thought making an electronica song would be easy, that is until I got to actually doing it and found out that making good tones can be a ****load more difficult than one might think.

But that's just the basics. You can make a harmonically simple club track or an 8-part grand rave fugue, that depends on the composer.

But I love rave and trance music. I listen to it while on my way back home at night, and when the streets are clear and I'm look at the sky, I imagine there's a big outdoor rave going on in the distance and all the multi colored strobes are dotting the sky. 'Tis beautiful.

Oh and this is as good as a place to ask as any, I really like Astral Projection, so cann anyone give me any recs similar to them?

Hardcore Speed Fusion Techno is good.... i like the stuff with little or no words.... but having said that, once a punk rocker, always a punk rocker. I'm never gonna be a raver.

Eh, a lot of techno is repetitive and unbearable. But I do like Infected Mushroom and some Daft Punk.
