    Saw this posted up on dogs, looks like he's talking about that site, probably the arena, and the general state of the Drum & Bass scene.

    he may well have a point but at the end of the day, if people are unhappy with the music then people are unhappy with the music and it doesnt matter how much you tell them they shouldnt be....

    I agree with you there, he's not going to persuade anyone to like the music they hate, but equally the haters won't be able to convince the people they're hating to like the music they hate
    At the end of the day if you think you could do it better, DO IT!
    Anyone can type words in on a forum, if you really care you'd be doing something about it not sitting at home whining and just expecting it to get better

    There's a massive audience full of these people out there waiting for your tunes as well, so there's the market!

    I'm not pointing fingers at you btw Affliction, you make good music and that's the action I'm talking about
    It's all the guys that don't that get to me
    If you want something that bad you'll see that you get it. If you won't even get out your chair then you don't deserve it

    Yeah, I think we all need to spend less money and time on buying disposable records and hating on them and more money and time on our studios and our own music. Myself included.

    Big tings in '04 for those like us who keep it in perspective and really love the music.

    Merry Xmas, btw!!

    i agree that just bitching about it and not actively trying to make the scene better is bullshit---if you don't like the tunes being put out at the moment, make your own (which is so much more possible now thanks to all the different software that's available, all you need is some software and a pc, and you can make a tune---) ...don't complain if you're not trying to give back to the scene, too many people just take without putting anything back... :devilslay

    All that negative talk about tracks/styles on those boards can get in your head.

    "I ain't feelin it" is all thats needed

    :violin: <-- Playing a sad song for all the bitchers and whiners out there

    If youre not here to party, then GET THA FUCK OUT!

    Teebee is right

    heres a point, go around telling everyone how great DnB it is, and everyone will think its great- simple mathemathics.
    well... unless they hate your guts... well fuck it, just ignore the above....
    Whiners will always whine, and let them ffs. Nobodys inviting them to parties.

    If you think DnB is crap? - well if you listen to it 24/7 an dont do much else, im sure you can pick a few flaws-

    Its all about variation

    Im doing a few riff + sub tracks and they sound marvelous- its been a while since they did that, and so i thought id do it- coz its good innit.
    Tho that aint all i do- the rest (of my tracks) go from switching to acid to electrofunk

    Stop downloading mp3s plz... it just doesnt feel the same as hearing them on the dancefloor, or at your local discDealers emporium.
    Plz remember, musicians actually need to live aswell, not just DJs, and *dont* tell me you cant afford it... jus dont.......

    Merry fucking Xmas to yall, and shove a spare sock in those whiners (you probably got some fresh pairs, like me)

    I personally think variety is the spice of life. Listening to one style of music can become very narrow & doesn't let you expand your love for music as far as it can reach.
    I started listening to hip-hop & r&b, then started djing Acid Techno, psy trance & a little hard house. Then moved into D&B. I'm seeing elements of the previous styles I played & listened to been incorporated into D&B at the mo, & it's fucking awsome. In no other music scence in the world do you get some of the most ground breaking drum breaks matched with the sweetest melodies, & the dirtiest bass sounds. Hmmmmm now if you can't find a style of D&B that really does make your hair stand on end and make you enjoy yourself then maybe you need to look around for something else to keep you moving instead of throwing negative thoughts at a scence that has lived true to it's sound from day 1. People are moaning about the 'Big Sound' of now but if you actually look at other producers & delve a little deeper into the music you will see an army of people creating something different & individual with there studio's & time that is just waiting to be heard. A scence doesn't exist soley with 8 record labels, 10 producers, & 3 venues its a global thing & the world is a fucking big place just waiting to be discovered!!

    its all this internetting thats the problem. you shouldnt take internet forums that seriously. theyre chuck full of wankers, really. i dont think the general online opinion is reprezentative for the scene at all. a much better way to get updated on whats going on via the internet is getting in contact with the djs to hear what goes down well with the crowds. the forum hating is annoying though, seems like every idiot in the worlds got a modem these days.

    all it really comes down to is taste
    different people like different things
    some people obviously realize that and some people don't

    to me it's all good man
    i'll bob my head to pretty much anything cuz i appreciate it as music
    i just appreciate music, in any form
    it's art
