#MusicMonday: Why so hard on DnB?

Is DnB the next genre to be outcasted with the likes of Country, Heavy Metal, and Classical Music?

Here’s to another Monday.

Is DnB the next genre to be outcasted with the likes of Country, Heavy Metal, and Classical Music? It’s not that people don’t listen to these genres, but when asked many people typically answer with the phrase:

“Oh yeah, I don’t listen to anything specific. I’ll listen to anything except (insert any of the three genres above).”

Rewind a year or two, DnB or it’s more mechanical-sounding twin brother, Dubstep, were appreciated by that masses. In fact, some people loved it so much to the point of copying Skrillex‘s, dare-I-say, unique coif. Now, it’s falling into the category of EDM that people steer away from for its grimier and more melodic cousin, Trap. All in all, I’m here to say that the genre isn’t so bad. Yeah, it’s a little harder on the ears, but done right and in the right state, anyone can enjoy it – check it:

ECHOS – The Haze

Phonat – Never

Minnesota – Voyager

As for this week’s round-up:

EstaMr. Carmack – Geometrik – FREE DOWNLOAD
Before headlining their European tour, the two forces have combined to create a groovin’ free download. It starts off as a hard-hitting bass track but mellows out to a slow jam made for body rolls and kush sessions.

Stwo – Stay on My Cool (ft. Jay Prince)
You’ll be repeating the chorus over and over again. 

Illangelo – Clockwork (ft. Phlo Finister)
Coming off Bromance Records, this release is dubbed the future of R&B. In a midst of ethereal vocals, bright piano, and scattered minimal percussion, Illangelo manages to break from tradition in the second half of this track.
