Hunter9 saidhey, you prolly know this, but Glitch Mob is headed to Reno soon!
I do know....it's my show. : ) I'm playing with them, Ana Sia and El Papa Chango.
You should come, cuz then the next day there is a free pool party with David Starfire TOO!
ShortnsexystudIsn't part of the DJ's job to entertain the crowd and get them all going by playing what they'd like to hear? I mean, ...."midtempo breaks", "glitch" hop, dub"step", "breaks" and "broken beat" doesn't sound very danceable to me. If I'm at a club, give me "upbeat", "hi-energy", "deep house" and "vocal dance" to keep me moving instead of standing on the floor going, "how do you dance to this stuff"? I mean I picture everyone doing the Robot to the stuff you describe with all the breaks and glitches, stepping and broken stuff going on.
You can do the robot, or grind on your partner, or do the low dance or just freak. The music I play is dirty and swampy, but it does require getting out of the "four on the floor grab your hoola hoop disco beat."
A broken beat just means that, if you think of a drum kit, the snare drum breaks the repetitiveness of a house, trance or disco kick drum beat. Hip hop and rock are broken beats, jazz is a broken beat.....
I pull 500+ people for my shows in the area that showcase this style. The music is really hype and actually makes people scream and pump their fists more than I see with house styles.
you're telling me this looks boring?
