Thumbs down Music forum

Guys. It's getting ridiculous. Most music in there is covers, remixes, and generic dubstep, techno, house, and plain old electronic. I appreciate the time and energy put into it but it all sounds the same and is very forgettable. I realize not everyone is a great artist and I respect that but people want to hear something new and original. Seems like most folks just go with the trend instead of thinking outside the box.
Also, the feedback sucks. For the longest time I have given lots of feedback when I log on. I have also posted my own music a few times, but have backed off because I've noticed with all the music (not just mine), people are very cold and it's like talking to the wall or yourself. You're lucky to get a few responses and they usually have no real value. Compliments are cool but we're all musicians here! Advice! Criticism! Suggestions! ..all things that help a musician grow. I mean... posts have 50-200 views and MAYBE 4 comments??? Come on people. Give as much, if not more than you take!

I hear ya, I think it's best to seek out genre specific forums and post your work there. I've been avoiding it now for a while, just focusing all of my interest in general, feature suggestions and the user forum.


A few great genre specific forums.

http://www.dogsonacid.com/ <-- DNB, Dubstep, etc

http://www.futureproducers.com/forums <-- Hiphop, RNB, Urban etc

http://glitchhopforum.com/ <-- Glitch Hop

http://www.idmforums.com/ <--- IDM

http://www.dubstepforum.com/ <--- Dubstep


The only thing in theses forums, is that your going to indefinitely run into reason haters.

Sadly guys true artists (those who have to make music cos its in their blood) are a fragile few less than 1: 1000 maybe and who really understand the issues. The average joe public punter is the very same who cant be assed to throw out the rubbish corrupt government system we have that took us into an illegal war despite 1 million people turning out to demonstrate in whitehall - go figure - and it gets worse, but we are musicians with a language that has no cultural barriers. If you are a musician you can go anywhere in the world and hook up with like minds, whatever culture or language. Isnt that remarkable - think about it.

So dont be discouraged, hook up in forums with other like minds. they are out there wanting contact just as much as you. If the punters want to listen in - thats ok too.

I think the biggest issue is that when we are on our computers we are working on our own music and browsing the forums while we listen and think of changes we want to make. In order to participate in the music forum you have to cut into your workflow and listen to other people's music which might completely throw you off your groove.. with the other forums you can just read and talk. If you want to be part of an active social music collective then go on SC and leave a bunch of comments for people.. they are more likely to reciprocate and become long term fans there then here.

Friend, you bring up some good points, but this is a free world and there is no right and wrong with expression. I think you need to relax a bit, because you sound like a very angry person. Also I did notice that it mentioned at the forum login, that you need to refrain from bringing up politics.

What? OMG

Relax, chill out, light up another

Not my style brother

Angry person - yes maybe I am and it shows in my art. When you live in UK you have very good reasons to be angry, BUT I am not trying to brings politics into this, I know its taboo on the board and I respect that, but its not the first time musicians have brought anger into their music and their art - is that wrong?.

My point was that musicians shouldnt be too concerned that the lumpen prols dont comment - thats normal in art - so suffer with it.

I have suggested that this board make it easy for listners to comment, with say a star system, but it doesnt exist. Not even in Soundcloud - why
