    DJ save me!! What happened to all the hot music??
    The CLUB music sucks and the dancing is even worse.
    What happened?
    A few years back I went to a big event in South Beach, FL. and the music rocked the house down! Lately, I have gone to a few venues and the music was horrible.......Has the era of hot tunes left the house??
    Maybe some of this??

    You have to define the 'hot music' you speak of. One mans hot is another mans cold.

    I BLAME todays straight EDM DJ's, who make millions, think they invented the electronic genre. See, gay community had this thing down, in the 70's, it was called Disco. Disco and its rhythmic beats was removed from planet earth by none other than straight (heterosexual) people, namely young white men who at the time preferred rock and roll classics. These men saw a 'take over' happening and their rock music was fading. Rest assured, the gay community has been mixing, producing, remixing, spinning, inventing electronic music, having a gay old time since the good ole days of Disco.

    Because everything old, is new again, with heterosexuals. For some reason, heterosexuals, men and women, have latched onto the electronic form of Trance, (Trance inducing melody) versus our gay music, hard tribal beats, low highs, danceable melodies.
    A circuit party is a large dance event. It extends through the night and into the following day, almost always with a number of affiliated events in the days leading up to and following the main event. Proto-circuit parties in the late 1970s, the precursors of what later became circuit parties, were called disco parties; they only lasted one evening and were held in various large venues in metropolitan areas with large gay populations. Circuit parties were first developed in connection with the early tea dances attended by a subset of gay men, as well as theme parties held on Fire Island, in the days after police abuse and before the beginning of the health crisis of HIV/AIDS. They came to resemble underground rave parties in some respects, but differ in that circuit parties are highly publicized and professionally produced, and tend to attract people from a wider age range and a broader geographic area.

    No need to make it an us vs. them issue against straight people. Many modern DJs (whether they fall under the EDM category or not) recognize that house music was born in gay clubs. That was made clear recently when a guy named Ten Walls made some derogatory remarks against gay people. Many artists and fans responded by calling him out on the irony.

    I also don't really support the idea of groups of people "claiming" forms of art, because art needs to evolve in order to be relevant and reach people.

    These days there is a lot of trash out there and it tends to dominate the festival scene, which is where all the attention is being given to. There are still some quality dance music coming out. It just depends on what your taste is. Here's something I'm quite liking right now:

    Used to dance to Junior Vasquez at Sound Factory and later on Earth.

    Nothing could ever top that. I have literally billions of dead brain cells to attest to that fact.

    I like rock n' roll music, I don't like electronic disco or club music. It all sounds basically the same and it is irritating after awhile.
