You are thinking too much!!!!
Nothing like a bit of Hard House with Ej Doubell.
Like me... you think too much. You should like what you like for the right reasons and not reject things that you like because it does not fit into your main interest as perceived by others... stuff other people's opinions.
There will be billions of opinions... most people here... think that John Digweed is the best thing since sliced bread... but based on my contact with various people/DJs... I would say that Danny Howells is the better DJ... a range of styles, a good rapor with the punters, always a smile for everyone and more rounded person overal. (And I am right).
The secret is not to diss other people... there will always be opposites.
Remember that your musical tastes change with AGE!! So there are no hard and fast rules with what you must fit into.
My life was...
Upto 16 VERY VERY Classical... orchestras and all that.
Then 16 to 20 ish... I went through my Rock Music stage... Friday night Rock show on Radio 1 and all that. Did not have long hair though... no greebo clothes for me.
Then I became a teacher and did not have time for anything.
Upto 5 years ago if kiddies bought things like Prodigy and any kind of Electronic music (artifical computer generated stuff) into school... I would actually frisbee it out of the window! Proper instruments that you strummed or blew were only allowed... none of this press a couple of keys on a computer type rubbish.
Now I have given up teaching and gone into a undisclosed job... nothing to do with Sony either. Progressive is now my life... clubs and all that... and I listen to nothing but Rob Duffy, JZ, DH, DT and other good names.
I wonder what I will be into... in 5 years time!
My Moto is:
"You cannot criticise anything until you have tried it at least once".
(Except drugs of course).
So the moral is:
"Just be yourself"
The Bedrock people are very friendly... the friendliest ever. (So unless you are a COMPLETE TWIT... then you will be okay).
