I Love Club Music

I love electronic music! I love how there are so many styles in the genre to choose from, like choosing a great wine to compliment the meal, club music compliments my life.

I love the memories of the club experience, where friends and sudden friends came together, to share in an all night show of lights, music, massage and dance. I love to get on that dance floor and feel that music, the bass so loud it vibrates inside me, and move and play and participate. I love to entertain others with aerial glow sticks, as they follow each other in circular movements around me dancing with the music. I love the lotion, the oil, the foam, the humidity of too many too close, the sweat...I love the DJs as they feel the crowd, building us up and down, climaxing, and staring again and again. I love the bonding and immediate welcoming and involvement of complete strangers, there to experience, experiment, and explore.

I love all electronica! Even if it is not something I listen to on the regular, I love to revisit the old and the humorous. I love to match my mood or create my mood based on what I choose for that moment. I love to discuss and share music with others, to get recommendations and create complex couplings of multiple compositions into a story of emotional invocation. The way it flexes and flows as the creator molds it to their whim, the same as any classical orchestra or operatic piece that Mozart would have created, and with the same intent to involve the audience.

I love all kinds and have an ever lengthening list of favorites. Some of these are:

Break beat/Progressive House
---------------------------------
Alright - Blackwatch & Hybrid

Drum & Bass
---------------------------------
The Arrival - Metrk

House/Progressive House/Electro/Downtempo
---------------------------------
Artemis - Auralei

Trance et al
---------------------------------
Burned With Desire - Armin Van Buuren

Trip Hop
---------------------------------
Urban Angel - Cinephile

House/Eurodance
---------------------------------
Days Go By - Dirty Vegas

There are so many different styles and styles that have been condensed to create a new style, styles that overlap and artists that incorporate many in their profiles, their recording, and single pieces. But a few that are not listed above that I am fond of are:

Baltimore Club
Dubstep
Jungle
ElectroHouse
Tribal
Acid house
Chemical breaks

I think that this music, in particular touches the very essence of me, it speaks to me, it holds me, it shakes me, it wakes me up and puts me to sleep, it tells me about myself and about others, it allows me to feel when for so much of the time I habitually shut down feeling. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next mp3 so I can experience what I have not heard yet, so I can pass it on to someone who is just as excited!

----“This is just what I really want,” says Armin. “It’s not just love for music, it’s my passion. It goes beyond liking, and beyond a hobby, it’s about a way of living. Music is essential to my life”.-------

I am all about a "live" performance, someone singing or playing their heart out and trying to connect with the audience. The people I was with when something like that was happening, that's what I remember

Well written, too bad we can't stay in clubland forever...
