    "Young people are now more interested in the chorus and beat of a song over the words, something that house music has capitalized on."

    Oh my. But what do I know? Apparently, not much. I'm just an aging Garage member.
    You'll have to excuse me. I'm the product of a broken disco.

    What they're referring to as house music, I call NOISE.

    grant it, but its imperative they dont white wash HIStory and begin to change the language to give total credit solely to the europeans cause as much as you hate it....its still house music

    It would be a refreshing surprise if at least one DJ from the (for lack of a better term) "soulful house" community, with roots in the music and scene, is interviewed as part of this series of DJ interviews. I guess we'll see...

    Who is this Guetta guy, anyway?

    Yeah because a sentence or two acknowledging the Black roots of House Music without going into how into how Black artists popularized the very music these artists are playing (or even acknowledging that some of the current wave of Pop House producers are using Black faces to sell their brand of House Music) equals the "non-whitewashing" of House Music.

    House Music became a global phenomenon about 20 years ago but according to Forbes, belated United States popularity equals the world.

    dood, youre the one going around calling it "EDM" when its clearly house music so lets quit the bs on what youre sarcastically implying as the "white washing" of the genre
    ive been pointing this out to you for a while but you seem to still not get it
    these terms DO matter

    ...Why no one seems to forget, in the beginning no one said it was global? Now aaaafta the fact of Avaicii and others we argue? Is this devide and conquer? We know this is a blatant attempt, to take what was done before.

    "This music ain't for everybody"

    We said that

    Thus, many cats decided to ignore the rest of the world and focus on our navels: all in the name of "Keeping it real"

    Today, it's as real as it gets
    As for the charges against me, I am unconcerned. I am beyond their timid lying morality, and so I am beyond caring.

    I think the popularity is great...just hoping it's not rock & roll all over again. This could be a big media piece...include Frankie Knuckles, Louie Vega, etc.

    So do I. Its all dance music. Mayimbe has a solid point about "whitewashing" However, its up to us to tell our own stories. We do that by acting honorably, doing the hard work of pressing the flesh, and being diligent and professional in our musical productions and promotions. The dance music scene has progressed far beyond the chitlin circuit ( this has been so for at least a decade) Its up to us to think big and act on that. Cats dropped the ball. However, it's not to late for a paradigm shift.

    JMO. I'm sure the purists will disagree with me. However, where are they?

    edit - the paradigm shift of which I speak is not a call to sell out. Its a call to be more inclusive. Cats are blowing up using homegrown US artists in a SNAP! redux. Talent shouldnt have had to go overseas when we could have been collaborating with them all along.

    I've said too much

    Peace

    like PWW i think this has moved way beyond Knuckles and Vega, as much as I respect them, they really are going back to the underground now, they've been overtaken by the new kids on the block...

    I get what you are saying and I don't disagree with it but these days your participation on DHP these days seems limited to pointing that out. I probably would respect your viewpoint more if you said it more on some of the other places you hang out at like Rhythmism, a place that really needs the history lesson, but really you just go along with their shit. I usually spell out Electronic Dance Music, which I tend to use when I am referring the different genres at once rather than just House Music. Heck, even the Detroit Electronic Music Festival (and don't tell me I'm a bandwagon jumper since I've been going on and off since 2001), a music festival that was originally established to celebrate Black contributions to electronic music (particularly House and Techno) uses the term "Electronic Music." Heck, the moment that they stopped using that term is when that festival was "whitewashed." Yes what Guetta and the like is doing is House Music, and I never argued that point with you.

    If we are going to talk about "whitewashing" let's at least aim for more than token acknowledgements and make a real attempt like PWW said to tell the true story of Black and Latino involvement in Electronic Dance Music (and yes I am including Techno and Drum and Bass so I am using the more inclusive term Electronic Dance Music and notice I am not saying "EDM"), as well as participating in the global dance music scene as it has evolved over the last 25 years and not just thumbing our noses at that scene just because the black voice is not as strong as it ought to be.

    Say what you want about me but at least be accurate. I'm not about the "whitewashing" of the music or its story but at the same time I am going to look at it as it current is and not what it once was or how it ought to be.

    dood, ive been here for over 10 years and it can get quite tiresome trying to prove to "know it alls" over and over again of who I am and where Ive been. Is my opinion more valid than others? perhaps, but on a messageboard it really does not count since its an anonymous shitfest that you can either take with a grain of salt or have fun with it as I tend to do.
    I apologize if Im not participating here enough to satisfy the DHP quota of BS but if youre jealous that Im on rhythmism more than this board then you can go ahead and tell all the dumb cracka nerds on that site that my services are needed here more.

    I know how long you've been here since I've been here just as long. You could spend all your time or on Rhythmism I really don't care since that's your business but I do find it funny that you are all about "let's not whitewash House Music history" here in one of the few places online where House Music history is not whitewashed while on Rhythmism, a place where racist comments are the norm, you rarely challenge their more whitewashed view of House Music. All I'm saying is be more consistent about making sure that House history is more accurate.
