MDMA and what have you can enhance the music and experience, but I love the music regardless. The whole button pushing argument is really annoying, as EDM and playing a real instrument or whatever is comparing two extremely different things. You like or you don’t, that’s fine, but chill out.

While an obvious part of the club scene, Manuel’s was an investigation of the music first and foremost.

    And no mention on drugs? Different chemicals change the way you perceive a certain length of time in a track or of course in the case of electronic dance music the length of a long DJ set or live music.

    Drugs have played a vital role in shaping the length of electronic dance music and the way tracks are build. Is this subject too obvious for the writer to write about or is the scene cautious about the topic?

    …Just wondering :)

I would venture to say that at least 50% (and that’s a very modest percentage) of the reason why DJ sets are so long is because the DJ’s are obliged to fill the need of their druggie crowd before they freak out and have nervous breakdowns (and can you imagine a crowd of people 200 strong all having their worst drug trips of their life?)

    The other over/under 50%?? It’s obvious — electronic music is far too simple. The only ways in which it creates any interesting complications is by layering and layering and layering. You can’t create organic tensions the way you do with real instruments by wandering off the given time signature, calling, responding, and improvising with each other, nor can the drums go off in a real solo to release that tension. All you can do as a listener is wait and wait and wait until a layering to your liking occurs, and before you know it, you’ve been listening to the same god damn drum beat for the past 2 hours. Meanwhile, you’re saying the waiting part of electronic music is genius and fundamentally separates it from other genres in a special way. What a load of crap.

    You know why live instrument performances are generally shorter? (and by the way, I don’t know what type of rock you listen to, but real rock concerts last quite a bit of time). Its because they’re actually playing a fucking instrument. That takes real energy and timing, not just messing about with a few buttons and pumping your first like a moron. You try playing a real drum kit for 4 hours and try telling me that there’s something profoundly significant about layering sounds on your god damn laptop. In all honesty, I actually enjoy SOME electronic music, and I do appreciate that it takes time for a track to build up and peak, but I don’t enjoy people who try to validate their own opinions with faulty arguments that omit the real reasons why things are they way the are.

    I’ve been a fan of Luis’ work for some time now, something he’s aware of. If my comment came across as patronising, it’s only due to the inability of the written word to adequately convey sincerity.

In most places an “extended set” means anything over two hours and other than the major dance capitals many of the top DJ’s do not get around to many areas too often. At the same time, there is a certain level of patience that dance music heads possess that allows them to get immersed into music for such long periods of time. A lot of the factors that are appealing to heads are a turn off to people who are not immersed in dance music culture (of course you knew that).
