Yet, I’ve seen guys—producers no less—categorically dismiss all tunes with Reese. That’s just dumb.
haha, I was just about to quote that as well
Hehehehe, if Mr K was referring to me, I've only said *I* don't like the sound of it, other people can listen what they like....... Me and him got off on totally the wrong foot, seems that may have continued
What actually does wind me up is the fragmentation that’s occurred, where you’ve got all these little sub-genres and sects, and each one holds its little preferred style or taste as The One True Drum and Bass.
good point this.
I notice it a lot in the dnb nights over here - there's a funk type night, or a heavy one or whatever. I end up getting booked to play a 'liquid funk' set, which is cool, but I would prefer to play a full mashup kinda thing.
I don't like the idea of endless splintering into sub-genres, would end up like house - funky house, deep house, tribal house, prog house etc etc.
Sometimes on flyers I see people trying to create a point of difference by pushing their thing as a 'combination of breaks/prog/tech/deep house' - this kinda vexes me because in my opinion a DJ is supposed to play a variety.
