I'm more worried about the so called "trouse" genre (trance + house) :?

Emery's remixed Britney? Why the fuck would he do that?!

It's not even pop-trance, it's just straight up pop music. I blame Guetta. For everything.

SHM combined main genres, and Guetta killed edm in 2009. Now everybody around me loves and listens electronic music, but i really can't have fun with those pop stuff. :)

I don't blame SHM, they invented a new style but now we lose old styles a bit as though.

Also remixing pop/rock tracks is not bad as for me. Even I can support some remixes, but it has to be trance if the dj calls it "trance" :lol: It have not to be made for just popularity.

Doesn't phase me at all, Gareth totally lost me with his last album, that was a joke.

I just hope there will be some people left that will continue to make good trance music for good music's sake and not for money. I don't know why anyone would wanna make edm for money unless they were David Guetta cuz there ain't jack to be made these days with producing music I think.

Now, if i'm listening to a trance set, invariably i get comments like "how can you listen to this?" yet if the same music had the Black Eyed Peas or Neyo yelling over it, these tools would lap it up.

Guetta & his collection of collaborators are responsible for that, with his latest abomination being the worst yet.

(Shamelessly steal "Don't You Want Me" by Felix + a lame Snoop vocal = massive success & $$$. The prick.)

How he ever managed to get in this position is beyond me, as his productions are... well, dogshit, for lack of a better word.

Actually it's not for $$$ because dance producers hardly make any $$$ from producing and releasing tracks.

The reason he does this is that remixing a world wide star artist like BS gives massive exposure (pun intended) to his name. He needs that exposure to knock Guetta of the #1 spot in the 2014 DJ Mag list. And when he does that then it's time for the $$$.

We dance music lovers may find this morally repulsive, but this scene is not all about the love for dance music. For many it's just about business. Gareth seemed a straight up guy at first, but apparently that was just a charade.

i think some people work themselves up too much. you can get insipration from anywhere. dirty diddy money's track coming home was remixed by dirty south and it's fantastic. people should be more worried about bad producers rather than where producers gain inspiration.

Britney Spears - I Wanna Go (Gareth Emery Remix)

Wow, I had heard he did something with Britney Spears, but I've never heard it until now. It's not even a good track! :(

Meanwhile, you shouldn't be too surprised, Gareth isn't the first:

Britney Spears - Everytime (Above & Beyond Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBxVZml9Deo)
Britney Spears - And Then We Kiss (Junkie XL Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLuUr7qGT-Y)
Dave Matthews Band - The Space Between (DJ Tiesto Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WL8Su7l1QlQ)
Dido - Everything To Lose (Armin van Buuren Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAo5kjVDe_8)
Dido - Sand In My Shoes (Above & Beyond Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kHeewDH4tw)
Madonna - What It Feels Like For A Girl (Above & Beyond Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6isQziMrvcA)
Owl City - The Saltwater Room (DJ Eco Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJh31dz8_ck)
Saigon - Bring Me Down (Matt Lange Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDPqkIzj8sw)
Sarah McLachlan - Fallen (Gabriel & Dresden Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dfwHSNzWLU)
Sarah McLachlan - Sweet Surrender (DJ Tiesto Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VftugZoCc0M)
The Police - Message In A Bottle (KhoMha Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M67mR-Dot2Q)
U2 - New Year's Day (Ferry Corsten Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrcIptfajkg)
U2 - Beautiful Day (Paul Oakenfold Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeZ52Basjtk)
U2 - Elevation (Paul van Dyk Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hyh1QfWnSp8)
U2 - Where The Streets Have No Name (John O'Callaghan Remix) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hyh1QfWnSp8)

The list goes on I'm sure.

Ultimately, my view of "Prance" is the same as my view of Vocal Trance, since there is no such thing as an instrumental Pop Hit: if the music is well done and the vocals aren't cheesy and actually have substance, then I am on board. If not, then it gets dumped in with this Gareth Emery remix. :(

While Gareth Emery lost my interest a while ago, I am not concerned with people remixing pop hits TOO much (although it is admittedly disappointing, as these remixes tend to be really grossly commercial, but some are rather good!), my fear is when producers begin COLLABORATING with these pop stars:

Three 6 Mafia feat. Tiƫsto - Feel It (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FThuVI_maAs)
Armin van Buuren feat. Owl City - Youtopia (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Jo8F0kBsUE)

Some of you may have seen this before, but my entire post can be summed up with this:

(While I disagree that Markus is "Where Trance Went Wrong," I do believe the video maker hit the nail on the head concerning his music videos; they were garbage.)

With regards to the video above, one of Markus' new dakota tracks (I'm Where it Went Wrong) is actually made in response to that.

Markus is really sensitive to fans' feedback, which is good to see

Fully agreed!! - Thanks for the link man, it is very informative, and I always wondered what inspired that track (and others). That's awesome.

Markus has always been so down to earth and has yet to let the fame raise his head above the clouds, and always manages to find time to interact with his fans whether it is behind the decks, through social media, or in the studio. He truly is an inspiration and personal hero, many top artists need to follow his example.
