you can be unique even if youre addicted to copy and paste.

stop sounding like everyone else. its annoying. it makes us FEEL BAD as listeners.

imagine, is there was 10,000 nirvanas and 10,000 foo fighters and 12,000 led zepplins.

but we never seem to say anything when electronic music sound exactly the same.

in any case if you dont soon male something unique youll soon be buried by the ocean of clones.

JUST THE FACTS

Greg is right on the money...

Funny the self styled experts put there. I am a classically trained musician who produces and djs a bit so it often amuses me how some folks feel they have the credibility to judge others' works as original in the dj/"producer"/edm world.

no my point is valid and the only one attacking people is you.

soundcloud is like a wall we are all allowed to paint but people keep copying each other and painting the same thing.

my point is valid. and it will help him.

stop attacking me.

Hi all,

I have been part of this group for about 4 years. I'm not sure which Mike you are or who Distortion King is, but I am very disappointed to hear his brand of childish criticism. I am not a huge fan of this genre of music, but you put a tight spin on the original. I would be happy to provide some constructive criticism for your track at the next meetup I can attend. I know I speak for everyone I know who attends the monthly meetups that there is no tolerance for the blatant childish attack of your music that DistortionKing has written here. We are all working together to share music and grow, not act like middle-school bullies. Don't let this selfish person get you down. Your tune was a huge departure from the original (and it sounded balanced when I a/b'd it in my studio) and that merits some respect.

Very disappointed in distortionking. This is the opposite of what we have established in this group!! Go away!!!

it sounds like genuine fight club music.

really too much of that on soundcloud right at the moment. i dont think this track will stand out against the thousands of tracks right now that sound exactly the same. 

plus remixes are being raped by the sec on soundcloud.

dont you want to male something unique? this sounds like someone elses perfect, namely feed me and skrillex's 110 bpm stuff.

you can be successful making unique art and sound, following your own true colors not someone elses perfect.

your track is a page out of "how to make a remix on soundcloud in 2012 for dummies"

but its loud.

Hey Everyone,

First off all I want to thank everyone that came out to see me on Saturday and to apologize for the extreme tardiness of my set due to a bad show manager. 

Now that we have that out off the way, I'm doing a remix of Zedd's new track Spectrum for the Beatport remix contest (http://play.beatport.com/contests/zedd-spectrum/remixes) and I wanted to run it by some people before I post it.


Please critique the crap out of it :) Thanks in advance.

-Mike

GO!
