    Hey I know DJ Fresh isn't thought so well of in the Drum & Bass world these days with his new stuff but I don't actually mind Nextlevelism and when I was listening to it I thought "This isn't all actually Pop but I'm not sure what other genres the tracks are so I need your help working it out


    Here's my take but I'd be interested to hear yours

    Louder - Dubstep
    Hot Right Now (Drum & Bass)
    The Feeling (Drum & Bass)
    Skyhighatrist - Electronica
    The Edge - Electronica
    The Power - Moombahton, Electro house
    Turn it up - Electronica
    Gold dust - Drum & Bass
    Don't tell me - Electronica
    Fire over water - Electronica
    See you again - Electronica
    Forever more - Electronica
    Godzilla - Electronica


    I'm sure I'm wrong about half these tracks but I'd be interested to hear your take on what genre each track is and if it has elements of any other genres and if so what

    It was pretty shit. Didn't mind Louder or Gold Dust much though.
    Godzilla and Skyhighatrist are DnB to me, and The Edge is kiinda dubstep but I only say that because of the beat.

    For some reason I really hated that new Gold Dust version, but yeah this album was pretty much entirely trash

    I do love both the original & Shy FX's remix. While I'm not a fan of much of Fresh's recent output he does put together a good tune from time to time

    What the fuck is Moombahton?

    Whatever it is I'm pretty sure I don't want to listen to any of it

    Slow house music without going into detail. And yeah you'd probably hate it. Incredibly fun to dance to tho

    Slow house is definitely better than any moombahton.

    Moombahton (god, i fackin hate to type this shit) is a fusion between the worst things in the world of music. Shitty EDM and Reggaeton.

    I beg you, please..don´t say House if you mean David Guetta or FAT Le Grand.

    Right?

    HOUSE



    Crap people call House but they shouldn´t really. This or eat ebola infested ape meat.

    Who do you think i am. i am actually offended that you would even consider the possibility that i would think house is that. I just think proper house sounds awful played at 110. like, really bad.

    I just wasted approximately 3 minutes of my life reading through this thread.

    Note to self: Thread title should have encouraged you to avoid

    I don't know... Maybe we should step it up a bit and start pigeon holing peopls posts...

    i.e. I would like to think of my post as creative and fun
