Forums - General Discussion - Lady GaGa has made dance music mainstream - DJ Tommie Sunshine

Hasn't this thread already been done and debunked. She has not popularized anything. People have been loving great dance videos since the beginning of music videos.

Lady Gaga is techno-pop not dance-pop, and even though she is heavily pop oriented, she is still probably the first big artist that does techno-pop almost exclusively and in that sense she is an innovator.



I can't speak for the US but in the rest of the world "dance" music and electronic music has been popular for a VERY long time.

A lot of Electropop was popular in the 80s and people like Kylie Minogue and Madonna have been doing it since before Jesus was born.

Of course Lady Gaga is leading the resurgence.



But that's dance pop which isn't really techno-pop



Whats the difference between "Dance pop" and "Techno-pop" I don't listen to either so I'm not sure of the difference.

I listen more to artists like Ahpex Twin, The Presets or Daft Punk then Lady Gaga or Kylie Minogue or any of the pop ilk.

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.

Justice is just higher quality crap... DJ FTL.



Tease.

I respectfully disagree.  Their original stuff is amazing, and their remixes frequently improve upon the original songs.

Check out this Justin Timberlake song they did.  It blows away the original (which wasn't too bad to start with):

You're not going to tell me that Daft Punk is crap as well, are you?

Since when has pop not been mainstream. Dancemusic is techno things like trance, jungle, hardcore, and drumb and bass. She sings pop music and scares people that has nothing to do with dancemusic.

You want to hear dance music go to a rave! PEACE!!!

This.

 

The only way to be on on MTV or VH1 is to be a Pop Star or sing about Love.

 

@Squill

 

I agree about DJ's.



Lady Gaga is not true dance.

Like others have stated she's dance pop.

And when has dance not been mainstream??? its mainstream in most countries worldwide (unless this articles just talking about america? then im mistaken)

           Exactly my point, her music is pop so of course she didn't popularize the already ultra mainstream pop music.
