The Throwback Dance Party is a blog about electronic music in the 90s and now. We will go through the top 10 songs of each year and discuss how they were made and why they are popular.
Electronic music is not something that most people are into but it has a huge fan following. The 90s was a peak time for electronic music since every single genre including Dubstep, Trance, Techno, Pop, House, etc. all had their own unique twist to them.
We will also talk about the current state of electronic music and why it is not as good as it was back in the day.
The Throwback Dance Party is a blog about the resurgence of 90s electronic music. The 90s were a great time for electronic music, with acts like The Chemical Brothers and Daft Punk being at the forefront of some of the best music to ever be produced. With the recent success of electronic music in the mainstream, many people have been pushing back against EDM and saying that it is ruining music.
But, I say no. I say that these people are wrong. EDM is not ruining music, it’s bringing it back to its roots. Electronic music used to be so pure and so real and EDM is just bringing that back into our lives.
The Throwback Dance Party will be your one stop blog for 90s nostalgia and current dance hits. We will provide articles about artists from the past as well as ones today that are helping keep dance music relevant in pop culture. In addition to artist spotlights, we will also have articles about throwback albums that are still worth listening to today (including my personal favorite: Mezzanine by Massive Attack).
The Throwback Dance Party blog is a USF student’s blog about the past and current music scene. Specifically, the blog focuses on electronic music in the 90s, specifically the genre of house music. The author of the blog has a passion for house music and he explains that even though hip hop has been mainstream since the 80s, electronic music has been around since the 70s.
People usually associate electronic music with techno and EDM, but house music is actually a genre of its own. Before it was called house, it was disco. The sound began in Chicago where it developed into a sound you can listen to at clubs today. The name was changed to house because it had a deeper meaning. The dance parties were referred to as “the house” because they were homes for people who didn’t have one or wanted a place to go dance without judgement for their sexuality or color. This new sound spread all over famous clubs in Chicago and began to take shape as its own genre of dance music.
The blog relates everything back to the 90s because this was when electronic music reached its peak. Today there are very few clubs that play strictly house music, most play EDM and techno which is an older version of house that developed in Detroit. Regardless, electronic
This blog is about 90s electronic music and how it is today. I will discuss many of the artists, producers, and DJs that have made a huge impact on the electronic music scene in the 90s and how they are still making a big impact in music today. I hope to show how electronic music is still growing, evolving and changing over time.
I will be discussing many of the artists that have made a big impact on electronic music in the 90s and how they are still making a big impact in music today. The main purpose of this blog is to show how electronic music has evolved over time and what changes have been made.
To start off this blog I would like to give some background information on electronic music. Electronic Music was originally created by using analog equipment such as synthesizers, drum machines and samplers by artists like Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, A Flock Of Seagulls, The Human League etc… Today there are many different types of genres that make up electronic music such as EDM (Electronic Dance Music), House Music, Trance Music etc… Some of these genres were popularized by artists such as Daft Punk, Skrillex and Deadmau5.
Some of the biggest names of 90s electronic music are trying to make a comeback. It’s surprising how many of them are still around.
The ravers who attended the parties in the 90s are now in their 30s and 40s and they have plenty of disposable income. Many of them would like to see their favorite artists make a comeback, and now that there is money to be made, some artists are responding to the demand.
Recently there was a concert in San Francisco featuring The Chemical Brothers and The Crystal Method, two acts from the 90s that are still going strong. The show was packed with people reliving their glory days of raving.
It’s interesting how this music has been appreciated by new generations. Some kids today have no idea who Moby or Fatboy Slim are, but they still listen to their music all the time because it’s featured so heavily on video games and commercials.
It was a time where the internet was not so much a part of our daily lives. A time where electronic music was not just considered a fad, but still had something to prove. The 90s were when electronic music drew its first breath, and before long, it would become something that would change music forever.
Electronic music has always been about the future. It was about what could be done with technology, and using the tools at our disposal in ways that could never be done before. But, what happens when those tools are no longer at our disposal? What happens when the future becomes the past?
Electronic music, in its infancy, was a genre of music that relied on the sounds of electronics to create a unique experience and sound that was different from traditional rock and roll. The earliest forms of electronic music can be traced back to the early 20th century. In the 90s, it reached its peak when DJs began taking advantage of new technologies and modern synthesizers to create their own sounds.
Today, electronic music is still a thriving genre with many different sub-genres and styles that continue to push the envelope in terms of what is possible with music. This blog will explore the history of electronic music and how it has evolved over time.
