If you want to make a hit song, you have to be part of an electronic dance music group. It’s that simple. So why are we sorry? So what should you do?
There are many talented new age music artists and DJs who have made it big in the world of electronic dance music groups. But unless they have made a career out of being a member of electronic dance music groups such as Ambush at Warlow, they will never be able to achieve the same level of success in the music industry as their counterparts. The reason is quite simple – they have signed a deal with a label, not an artist, and therefore are only using their talents to make a living.
In contrast, new age music artists have signed deals with well-known record labels. This is more of a necessity than a choice. These companies need the music for their promotion campaigns and marketing of new music. Therefore, these artists will never achieve as much success in the electronic music scene as their alternative counterparts. For example, neither will they be able to tour the world as extensively or live in a mansion as lavishly as their counterparts.
Another reason why British electronic dance music groups always seem to succeed against their American counterparts is because of the level of skill and dedication they possess. Whereas, American artists will often settle down as soon as their contracts end. British acts prefer to keep going. They know that this will give them a greater opportunity to enjoy their careers and make more money.
Finally, American producers tend to believe that their beats belong solely to themselves. Whereas, in reality, they are influenced by the popular music from around the world including Latin, house and breakbeat, even Asian and New Age music. Sometimes, new age music artists are influenced too much by mainstream pop, which over time, becomes indistinguishable from their own original sound. So, although many new age music artists actually have some influence on their audiences, their main influences still remain new age music and not major contemporary music.
The truth is that electronic dance music artists have to stay on top of all the latest trends, which are constantly changing the face of the industry. Even though this is a difficult task, due to the fact that most electronic dance music artists work in a rigid schedule, they still manage to keep themselves abreast of what’s going on in the world of electronic dance music. Even though this is a great feat, it is a Herculean task. Every now and then, producers tend to rush out to the shops to buy the latest items in DJ equipment and software, forgetting that they still need to listen to what the market has to offer. So, they end up either spending too much money or just not getting the best items.
In order for electronic dance music groups to stay on top, they need to get the right equipment. These include special pair of headphones known as the circumaural headphones. These headphones help transmit better sound waves to the listener and help them hear the beats clearly. These headphones are programmed tracks that can be loaded onto a personal computer and are commonly used by electronic dance music groups.
Apart from headphones, special speakers are also used by many electro groups. Speakers, once programmed, can reproduce music in polyphonic and mono modes. Monotone means that sounds will come in one frequency, while polyphonic mode produces a wider range of tones. A DJ might play trance music and a non-tune or might play non-tune trance music, the difference being programmed tracks that are played at the right time with the right volume.
