A lot of the really good electronic dance bands these days are DJ's as well to some degree. James Murphy, Hot Chip, Justice and Daft Punk are all examples

I wonder if new DJ can really touch what was done by some precursseur DJ like Prodigy, Daft Punk or Chemical Brothers

I mean : I always have the impression I have heard those supposed "news" DJ thousand time in the past years ....

It wasn't until recently, with Lady Gaga's Just Dance hit in the summer of 08, that electronic, Euro-style dance music began to find its niche again on the American mainstream charts. This is a point that is agreed upon by almost the entire music industry. Madonna has definitely made an impact, but that had dissipated some going into the early 2000s. And now Lady Gaga is essentially uping the ante as far as pop music is concerned. She is everything: marketing genius, songwriter, singer, dancer, and far more fashionably courageous than most of her contemporaries. She has transformed the runway aesthetic into a more easily accessible vision, wearing clothes you might think are stupid but are designed by the people who inspire with their creativity the trickle-down dept. store clothing lines you wear everyday. So before you shoot your mouth off about what you think is art, consider that at 24 years old, this girl has in 2 years single-handedly taken over what has always been the court of singers who have had far more time to perfect their craft (i.e. Madonna, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, etc.). And don't even get me started on her now-famous performances: the MTV VMAs, the MuchMusic Awards, the Brit Awards, SNL, the Grammys...all iconic performances because she has something that has been essentially lost for a good 10-15 years with most artists: SHOWMANSHIP. Whatever, I've made my point. Naysayers can #### ####.

you mean "pornographic" showmanship ...

Well listen to LCD Soundsystem, it's my favourite electronic dance band at the moment. Certainly they never sound rehashed.

Leo-J, I didn't read the whole article or any of the responses. But it seems like you don't read the articles either, and you just post anything that mentions Lady Gaga in a positive light. Did you read this one? It has a line in it that says Lady Gaga is "helping the scene regain the prominence it held a few decades ago." Notice the part where it says this scene was big "a few decades ago." This is not new. It was around before Lady Gaga was born.



@Rubang

yes I know, I quoted mtv on the topic.

Every DJ remix I have ever heard sucks. I find it difficult to take any DJ at all that seriously. Apart from making them more club friendly, DJs always ruin music when they adjust it.

Are you including stuff like this when you say remixes?  If so, I have to disagree:

 

OT: I never thought of Lady Gaga's stuff as dance music.  Way too poppy.  If that's dance music, it was made mainstream well before Lady Gaga.

Love Justice  XD
