"Technoheads are idiots...
They're alllll... drug addicts and losers, who
Don't... even play instruments --
Just push buttons on their computers"
(the theme song of Subsonic, "Technoheads Are Idiots")
You should get into this electronica stuff, Jefe. It's the best
kind of music to listen to on the computer, on a long car (or, as of
this Saturday, bus
) ride, outside on a walk, hell, even (in bed)!
Plus, you can act cool by liking it while nobody except a 1337 few
know what you're talking about.
If you wanna start getting into it, use the Jimbo Method (the
Crystal Method works, too):
1) Start listening to Subsonic on Live 105 on Saturdays at midnight. You're
away at that hour, anyway. And if you are, in fact, in bed, turn the
radio down to a low volume to set a trippy mood. You don't even have
to hear more than 10 minutes of it! I only listened to 5-10 minutes each SS
for a few weeks when I started out.
2) Download some random MP3s by Paul Van Dyk, ATB, Sasha, John
Digweed, Chemical Brothers, Moby, and the Propellerheads. Oh, and
Alex D'Eila vs. the Ebop Allstars' "Isn't Life Wonderful" (the 3:43
version). It should take about 20 seconds for the ol' CMMT.
3) Start listening to Subsonic for longer periods of time (30-60 minutes,
if ya can.) You'll start accepting the funky flow + various styles (trance,
club, jungle, drum 'n bass). Then you'll be ready to...
4) Buy Paul Van Dyk's new CD, "Out There and Back." It's got
a bonus CD, a bunch of great tracks, remixes of them, multimedia on the bonus CD
that you can access on the computer, and best of all, the first CD links
