A lot of people love dark electronic dance music. It is hard to believe that something so dark and mysterious could be a big hit. But it is! At least in the underground it is.
The reason for this is that dark techno is all about atmosphere. There are plenty of songs out there that are incredibly dark but they never become annoying. Instead, they intrigue and entice you. They are mysterious and yet their melodies are not as difficult to decipher. This is what makes dark music dark.
In fact, the biggest factor that drives dark electronic music is that most of the beats are just buried in the mix. Most production music these days has over-produced sounds, and this is why the typical dark tune is not very memorable. These tunes have been overused, and the artists involved either forgot what made them dark in the first place or just did not know any other way to make them better.
That does not mean that every dark electronic tune is bad. In fact, there are some damn good dark techno songs out there that don’t cost an arm and a leg to download. But if you’re a fan of underground styles of music then chances are you are already halfway interested in this style. The reason for this is because it is often a struggle to find fresh and new songs these days. Bands like Hospital, Roll Deep, Chrome ft. Mista & Maelstrom, Ska, and lots more are all at least playing in the same space as the majors.
So how do you get around this? Well, one way is to make sure you are listening to new and unheard of dance music. Luckily, this is not that hard to accomplish these days. New and unheard of DJs are putting out music every single day on social media. They showcase and promote the new music they have created as well as talk about the new trends that have emerged in the world of dance music. So if you are a fan of a certain kind of dark techno then you can find out what the latest is by listening to their online profiles.
Also, if you have a subscription to a certain kind of music blog then you will probably be able to hear about upcoming albums before anyone else does. Just by looking through some internet blogs, you should be able to come across something new about a new dark electronic music record. So go ahead and do your own research, but do keep in mind that the internet is a huge mess. The quality of most of the songs has been marred due to poor sound equipment, so you may have to settle for a poor recording, but you shouldn’t worry too much about that because there are plenty of great ones out there.
Some of the best things about modern dark electronic music are the melodies and beats, which seem to have a hypnotic effect on everyone who hears them. So do keep an open mind because that could be exactly what you need to create a journey through the dark night. And if you don’t know anything about this kind of music, then it’s time that you learned, because you will never know when you will hit that jackpot and become one of those who rips the genre off the rest of the music industry.
So where can you find some good dark electronic music? Well, honestly, you can’t just download anything off the internet, because most of the albums out there are full of viruses and spyware. So instead, what you should do is to use a good CD burning program and burn the tracks you want to hear to a CD. You will also have to make sure that the files are actually lossless before you save them onto the disk. There are lots of free CD burning programs on the internet, but they usually come with spyware and virus attachments that are so bad that they are not worth the time or the effort. So be very careful when choosing a program for burning your CDs and you will only be able to make perfect, high quality dark electronic music.
