    Before I listend to music created for partys (Techno, Electro and so on) I dis-liked it. Thought it ruins music and makes crap out of it.

    Theres a D.J. called D.J. Tiesto , He seems to be the number 1 DJ in the world right now.. Anyway this guy is a genious! he took a classic song called "Adagio for String " Which is a opera-like song which features a lot of classic instruments (non electric) .. Anyway when he was young he wanted to be a famous fiddler or something , but he didn't pass the qualifycations to be a high-leveld fiddler.

    He took this song and remixed it. It became his biggest hit.

    Now when I heard this story I thought it was crap , a friend of mine then played the song on youtube , and DAMN . THIS . GUY . IS. A. GENIOUS!

    original Adagio for stings(listen about a minute or two of the song , it gets kind of boring fast) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RRMz8fKkG2g

    Tiesto's remix for Adagio for string(I start dancing when I hear this song =P) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__uVTxkbcp8

    Dude, I *like* club music,
    but like all music, it has it's proper place.
    In this case it's In A Club.

    A DJ in concert?
    How rediculous can you possibly get?

    I cannot agree with you about this piece.

    lol, i appreciate that you like the music, but don't be so surprised about his idea. while it does sound nice, similar things have been done millions of times before [​IMG]

    To be exact this is trance, techno is just a word for all electronic genre's.

    What do you guys think of this?

    Welcome to my world.

    Try:

    -Armin Van Burren

    -Benny Benassi/ Bennassi Bros

    -Paul Van Dyk

    Just google, Progressive House Music, and/or House Music, you'll like it. This kind of music is mistaken for techno, which i personally see it as soemthing completely different. It is HOUSE people. There are jsut a lot of variations, Progressive house being my personal favorite.

    Tiesto is sort of meh, not all his songs are good, but compared to Armin he's nothing.

    "Tiesto is sort of meh, not all his songs are good, but compared to Armin he's nothing."

    if you'll get killed don't blame me , I warned you. =)

    Listend to Armin Van Buren , his good but has nothing special bout him ..
    Benny Bennesi has the "My Otherside" remix , which is amazing.

    Beside tiesto there is also David Guetta - Pure awsomeness but once again , doesnt get even NEAR tiesto.

    For some reason this reminds me of an old Amiga scene demo called Rise by Mellow Chips and TRSI: Clicky

    Good stuff, both the YouTube video and the demo (if you consider it's age and the hardware it ran on).
