Yes sorry to go off topic again =P...
Every event we post through the event system must have at least some hardcore spinning at the event. Just have a browse through the calendar, I'm sure you will find one you might like.

And Gaz...
I understand what your talking about.
But over here you have to understand it's an entirly different situation. The UK has already seen the rise, fall, and re-rise of hardcore but here, we haven't even seen a rise yet.
Also over here, there is no such thing as "Raverbaby cutting the biggest chunk of the pie," since there really is no scene here to take a cut from in the first place.

Things are looking up for the U.S.
And im glad to be a part of it.

Alright thanks again, to end the offtopicness :p

And I agree also with the fact that the US needs its turn in the Hardcore scene. I didn't really wanna say this... or maybe I do, cuz I am saying it now, but I have been SLOWLY working various hardcore tunes for almost a year now, and they are getting kinda good; if I can polish them up, ill slowly start releasing them here and there. Point is, if this Burger King is a hopeful omen of the rise of Hardcore in the US, I better hurry it up :p

I take both Silvers and Nexus' points, and I'm pretty much glad it's getting bigger in the states.

I suppose I was trying to let off some steam, perhaps the wrong thread to do it :/



*sighs*

HARDCORE is getting really big in the states now as well as everywher. Thanks to things like the North American Hardcore Movement. I could see konamis DDR serries being a major benafactor for all of hardcore and giving it a huge boost in listeners. :)

I for one don't want hardcore going mainstream and commercial!

:P.


But we are talking about USA here, they dont even have CD releases like UK
any exposure is good



Yea I live in the US, and about... NO ONE knows what hardcore is. It would be nice if I could one day walk into Best Buy, and see a bonkers or hardcore nation CD in the slowly growing electronic section. I am fortunate to live in California, where Hardcore is SLOWLY starting to become known, and played in raves and such. All in all, hardcore getting some attention can't kill it.



The Best Buy out here has This is Noize II and Hardcore Nation..... still not enough though

Virgin records carry Hardcore Nation and Bonkers

Everytime the commercial comes on, I get chills.

I personally wouldn't mind hardcore going "mainstream". I don't really see a down side to hardcore being popular. I'm all for anything that opens people's ears up to new flavors that don't get much recognition here in the U.S.

Hardcore isn't going to go mainstream. It takes a special kind of mind to appreicate electronic music in general, hardcore even more so. What a lot of people worry about is that there will be thousands of brainless teenagers walking around gushing about how fantastically awesome this "new" music is, completely ignorant of the fact that there were people listening to this before it became the "big thing".

To understand why hardcore can't go mainstream we need to look at the current mainstream trends. Young mainstream people these days predominently listen to the mass produced hip-hop which is available to them, or pop-punk sort of stuff. Now the main difference between mainstream pop-punk/hip-hop and electronic music, is that electronic music is about progression and rewarding paying attention.

Mainstream music just jumps straight to the point, like an intravienous injection of stupid. Electronic music is more like a rectal suppository. All electronic music needs to be appreciated in the full form, so you need to listen to the entire 7 minutes of a track inorder to completely understand and appreciate the progression. This is why to the uneducated electronic music just sounds like the same thing repeated for ages. Hardcore being on a BK commercial isnt going to change the fact that mainstream people are still going to think that hardcore sounds like the same thing repeated over and over. The average person doesnt have the patience or intelligence to appreciate any form of electronic music, ESPECIALLY not hardcore.

So thats why I say big ups Acolyte, make that money. Because no matter how many people hear that commercial, the majority of them still arn't going to give a shit about our music.

^^ Electronic music is pretty mainstream in Europe, it wouldn't be particularly out of the ordinary for a dance track to get to number 1.

I agree with what you are saying and thats probably one of the best explanations i've ever heard.

But the amount of people that are going to like it is not what i was after. The fact that our music is finally being taken seriously as a mulit-national corporation choosing a hardcore tune to be the on the forfront of a national add is enough :)

But its also obvious they are targeting kids with this add...
Kind of a downer.
