Time and Time again, one of my friends will say to me, “You’re still listening to Dance Music? When are you going to grow out of that, there hasn’t been anything new in years?”… Me: “No, you haven’t heard anything new in years”.
“And listen to what?” I always say. “That crap you have in your glove box?”
I run into people and friends all the time that “Used to” listen to Dance Music, and claim knowledge of the most popular and listened genre of music in the world, but in all reality, they just really jumped a bandwagon at the time the radio was playing a lot of C and C Music Factory, Black Box, KLF, Pet Shop Boys, and every Top 40 artist had to have a “Club Mix” and thought that they were in “The scene” for a time period.
Then radio moved on to the “next big thing” and like sheep, they went with it, or reverted back to what they were listening to before. The fact of the matter is, Radio, MTV, and other mainstream outlets play what image they think they can sell you, not what’s really good, or popular. They create popularity. That is their business.
The Death of Dance Music has been predicted by one writer or another over the last 25 years and it always makes me laugh. Some of the same guys, (and gals) that were hitting the clubs in the 90’s, wearing their best Z-Cavaricci’s, Cham’s, Polo’s, Alexander Julian Shirts, Roots Shoes, Baby Doll Mini’s, Coach Bags, and “Jacked up” on enough Cocaine to stimulate the GNP of Bolivia, are now the same writers and “haters” that lost touch with what is going on, had a kid or 2, sobered up, and since it wasn’t on the radio anymore, and assumed that everyone stopped listening, and continued to be force fed the same 40 songs as everyone else in the country, until you heard it enough times, that familiarity tricked you into believing that you liked it.
Nothing, as we all know, nothing could be further from the truth but I always get a kick out of my friends and associates that don’t give any respect to the form, and pull out an old Megadeath, Journey, or Phil Collins TAPE, and say, “See now, this was the good stuff”
I have been listening to House, and Techno/Trance since the beginning, and not only is the old ground breaking stuff still able to hold it’s own on any dance floor, but it has evolved and gotten better over the years and has spread around the world like an infectious plague, and planted a flag firmly in the culture of most every civilized society on the planet. I love it when I play something from “back in the day” and somebody in my car will say, “Hey , I like that new stuff you’re playing…Who is that?”. And I’ll say something like, “Um, that’s Todd Terry with Martha Wash…it’s 10 years old”
In performing arts, body posture is the medium to express the artist’s intention to the audience. When done perfectly, then this is appealing to those watching them. The posture of the dancer depends on the dance music that is playing in the background. It is a combination of executing the beat while maintaining the posture or the stance that best relays the message of the dance.
At clubs, the DJs change the beat up to respond to the interest of their listeners. When the music is unrecognized then not a lot of people will dance to the beat that is played. A good club knows the current dance music as well as the remix dance that will get the club goers to their feet the minute that the first few riffs are played from the boombox.
Therefore, DJs should be updated with the current release. They must also be aware of the club goers. It is their responsibility to make the dance floor alive and kicking. Progressive changes on the tracks that they play lead to an increase in movement of the club goers. The dance music that is available for download from various downloading sites are investments for DJs, whether they be club DJs or virtual DJs.
The large clubs encourage club DJs to play the latest dance music that they can get their hands on. As much as possible, the more remixes, the better because it gives the club goers the option. There is interaction in the club. People get to socialize in various clubs all over the country. A club that has lots of goers mean good business for both the owner and the DJ. The owners take note which DJs lure the most number of club goers and offer them more regular gigs. This is because the club goers actually take note of the club DJs that make them dance and have a good time.
Art is everywhere and it is evident in club music. Even the remix of dance music is still considered art. There are people who regard this as noise but it is an art in a different form. An art is a creative outlet that has a creative artist, an art object and an observer or an audience. In this case, in dance music, the creative artist is the DJ and the art object is the music that is remixed. The observer or the audience are the club goers. Therefore it is safe to conclude that club DJs and virtual DJs who turn up the music in the clubs create art.
Dancing is very important. It is a form of escape from a busy schedule. At least with lively dance music and the remixes tha come with it, as provided by club DJs and virtual DJs, club goers can definitely relax from their stressful lives and just dance the night away. Going to the clubs are energizing in that sense. At the same time, club DJs can get a regular gig at the clubs they are playing in – especially if they are the reasons why people check the club out on that specific night.
Ballroom dance music has become popular not only for dancing to, but also as a form of musical entertainment. Great for a relaxing evening at home with a glass of wine, or a night of lively beats at the local pub, the tunes have become a large part of American and European culture and entertainment. As a result, ballroom dance music can be heard just about everywhere, most often without even realizing that that’s what you’re hearing.
Popular artists are contributing very heavily to the selection of the genre that is available today. The traditional crooners such as Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett are still great choices for a lot of the traditional styles of dancing like the Foxtrot. They are now being joined by present artists such as Michael Buble, whose music is used most often for the Rhumba or ChaCha. Even songs by Madonna, Billy Joel, and Christina Aguilera are great for dancing the Jive, not to mention listening to as you are driving down the street or stuck in traffic. This sport has come a long way since the standard classical compositions were considered a standard requirement.
Ballroom dance music in the past was mostly a choice between one classical composition or another. Prior to the 1900’s most dancing music was specially commissioned by Royal courts or high society to be played by their own private musicians or orchestras for special balls and gatherings. Of course, this is what we would now consider to be songs that fit into the classical genre, but back then, they were brand new and very popular in social circles. Some tunes were even played softly in the background by just a few instruments as a sort of background music for card playing or luncheons, much like out elevator or ‘on hold’ telephone music is today, although the music back then was probably not as annoying when a tune got stuck in your head. The music served not only as tunes to dance to, but also to brighten an environment.
This genre can be found in several different places and quite easily these days for those who are looking for it. Finding some great danceable and relaxing tunes can be as easy as turning on your computer. A lot of dancing music and information sites also have free downloads of classical, as well as popular and current hits. For new releases, iTunes is a great place to purchase the ballroom dance music that you might be looking for. Of course, you can always simply turn on your radio to find some tunes to dance to or to brighten your mood.
