This one is directed towards a specific genre i have always and will love,
Forget the dubstep, forget the electro, forget the house, just....trance. The reason why i am ranting about this genre is because of how artists do things. I remember back when i was around middle school or so and i was introduced to electronic music. It was a guilty pleasure because during that time, not that many people actually liked instrumentals an stuff. Everything always had to had lyrics or it was considered shit. Well my mind had adapted to melodies and sounds rather than vocals because most vocals back then were always about generic topics. Sex, love, relationships, money, all that stuff. Trance had this dreamy and wonderous feel. It made me feel like i was in different worlds....i craved it.
However, when i try to look up trance around youtube, i would see stuff from like armada and other places. It is how it is designed though, that makes me feel disappointed. Most of them now would have your generic appergiated detuned saw or some random saw pluck. They never would have very unique sounds like this or this.
But now these artists have turned away from there ways (except for blackhole) and now have jumped into the mainstream. I have checked out pulsates more professional works and....i just....feel horrified that he is now making these really generic songs like house and dubstep. Like what is wrong with these trance artists today? They are all like afraid to be different. They never use amazing basslines like in visionary, or bother with a unique lead. No they just use some detuned saw and that is it.
The only professional song i have ever heard that was entirely unique was this song (go to 2:50). No professional trance artist has ever even attempted to make this kind of sound.
Another good example is a very VERY early song by xkore. This one just takes my breath away because of this amazing synth you can hear at the start. It sounds like a square but really really different. (link)
Why does no artist do this anymore? Why must i have to listen to these songs from popular dubstep artists or these generic trance songs? Why will no one ever step up and bring back all this. All these amazing sounds that i practically grew up, why does no one make them anymore?
Is this like a certain genre or something i don't know about?
That is all i have left to say for this rant.
