you know there were some artists arguing that because of the rising attention, "breakcore" has become a term for a genre that did not exist until other's liked the music that came out of the scene and tried to imitate it instead of being experimental and doing something new that benefits the scene or "genre" by adding new influences and ideas. instead, tons of bedroom producers releasing shit on small netlabels getting recognized by maybe 10 people per released record try not to do just music, maybe mimicking some of their favourite breakcore-artists but instead try to do "breakcore" as if there were something as archetypical breakcore. and by doing that, they actually created that archetypical breakcore. you know, even i myself have tried to subcategorize breakcore. but fuck, i mean why do we categorize something that is beautiful because of it's chaotic randomness? isn't that ruining the fun?
i also noticed that the deeper i got into breakcore, the more boring it became. i've spent this whole afternoon clicking through last.fm, desperately searching for a new fix, like i'm a junkie looking for something that's even harder.
but then, i had an idea. i mean, how many rock bands are there on last.fm? thousands, maybe houndreds of thousands. that's a lot, surely. how many rock bands are there which are NOT on last.fm? i'd say at least ten times as many. fuck, that's a lot isn't it? did that make rock music boring? well, most of it but once or twice a year i find a simple plain indie-rock (oh how i hate that term) record that blows me away and that i fucking like. so did the number of bands doing rock prevent a small number of bands from being totally awesome? nope, it's just harder to find them between the rest. and, let's face the truth: i don't know even 100 breakcore-artists who reached the point of actually having a physical release or liveshows.
in conclusio: if you're one of the guys making your own stuff (just like me ^_^), do something original or no one will notice you. remember the "loli ripe"-hype, and how many others have tried to ride in his wake since then? believe me, releasing the 1000th generic lolicore-ep (BUT MINE IS NOISIER!!111) won't get you any fans except some die-hard freaks like i am.
am i right or am i talking shit?
