Hello DiS community!
I’m just learning to play music. And as of music theory, I’m only starting the learning curve too.
There is one thing I’ve noticed though: mainstream EDM, for me, sounds so dumbed downed nowadays.
The same build ups, bass drops, always the same little scream that hops on right before the bass drop.
And I can’t help but wonder: why am I more attracted to more ‘‘complex music’’? Aphex Twins? Even Daft Punk, heck, sounds more complex. Or rock bands such as Black Keys and Radiohead (to stay in the mainstream and not diving too deep) have something more than guys like Avicii, Calvin Harris and the likes.
But I’m such a newbie I can’t really grasp where the complexity lies technically. If you guys have any sources or information yourself, feed me here!
I don’t want to sound like that hipster EDM hater. I am just truly intrigued as to why it sounds so simple and stupid, for me…
