so many people are defecting from dance music because they're quite simply bored of it and then the die hard fans complain that clubbing attendances are down. It's quite simply because there are too many people pushing the same sound - the same club nights with the same DJs playing the same music. there's no variety or experimentation in it all.

yeah you get fads (electro house etc) but the problem is every man and his dog starts playing and producing the stuff and you end up with such a raped sound that:
a) nobody can add anything new other than an ever so slight variation on a theme, and
b) the scene becomes so over saturated that people start to resent the music.

now I'm not saying this is exclusive to electro house or that people shouldn't listen to or play the stuff. I'm just saying why are people so scared to experiment with their own sounds a little? why do we really need 3 thousand records all featuring the same film sample or 29 million bootlegs of the same oldskool track or 58 trillion variations of the same hoover?

I love music and find myself having to listen to dance in increasingly small quantities these days. not because I'm jaded - i love dance music and it will always be my 1st love - but because i find half the mixes available to download use the same tracks. Have the DJs mix the tracks the same way and half the tracks played are so samey they will be completely forgotten in 3 months time.

it doesn't really matter if you like euphoric breakdowns, rolling grooves, hard kickdrum lead stompers or funky rhythms - it would just be nice to hear some more producers dare to create something different even if it does run the risk of not earn them as much money. It would be nice to see DJs venture out of their niche from time to time.

anyway - I've ranted on for long enough. I know this is deemed as elitism talk on here, but surely some of you feel the same way? Anyone?           - - - - - - - -

The problem is when someone does something "new" other people start doing it and then its not new anymore.

Personally I am currently taking great pleasure in the whole spectrum of hard house, right through from the funky stuff (Digital Kid, Tom Parr, Scott Fo-Shaw etc) through to filth (OD404/Defective Audio etc) and everything in between.

I think there has been a bit of a lack of creativity (in volume) in the hard house scene but there are certainly more producers doing it for me these days than this time last year. You have new labels like Nil By Mouth springing up and the digital labels now give the freedom for moe producers to get their work out there.
