"Obnoxiously overproduced, very amateurish arrangement, generic dross" does not equate to constructive criticism.the tone policing from your end is also shocking. There's also absolutely no need from your end to go and tell people what they should and should not vent here.
This is a music forum for discussion, not a trance church where only praise is allowed. As a producer myself I find constructive and often harsh criticisms like overproduction, overuse of samples and genericism key inspirations to avoid those traps in future productions.
nothing but "plur" comments get you nowwhere except stuck with a stroked ego.
Brendan (Factor B) for example is an awesome guy that believes in his music and loves to produce it, It's all that matters.
Just like the majority of people here I also don't like 95% of the current mainstream Trance music, I don't even open Trance genre on Beatport anymore when I'm looking for new music for my radio show, I always find my type of Trance in Peak-Time Techno and Progressive House.
But, when some of you guys enter every thread here just to leave a comment like «It's a shitty templated track and because of tracks like this the Trance scene is where It's at» you're no better than a dog in the booth that's barking on every passerby.
Brendan (Factor B) for example is an awesome guy that believes in his music and loves to produce it, It's all that matters. If you don't like it It's absolutely OK! Go and find music that's up your street.
If you really like what you're doing it doesn't matter what it is ©
youre another person who is complaining about someone giving their opinion on a forum - which is what they were invented for lol.
Opinions in form of constructive criticism and blatant hatred from the sofa are different things. People should use a punching bag instead of forums to unleash their negative emotions.
1 called him names.
2 claim he's somehow a terrible person for making the music he likes,
3 demand that he must produce what they like.
4 think that is somehow morally reprehensible that he's doing his own thing.
We're reading two different forums for sure mate.Wheres the hatred? You must be reading a different forum.
This is the problem with people nowadays..theyre too politically correct,too polite and easily offended.
no... i'm pretty sure i've read and quoted the whole thing, including the part where you compare music critics/fans on this forum to dogs, whilst simultaneously falsely asserting that they allegedly hate on factor B's lovely personality, (as if that has anything to do with his music?)Looks like you've only read the last sentence of my previous post
Its better People are honest about tunes made like tjis. Its not about negativity.
Go to Facebook or YouTube. I can assure you that you will most likeley feel at home on those comment sections with the warm loving 99 %positiv feedback and comments.
Me on the other hand is happy theres one single place where these generic/cheesy/cheap tunes get exposed. People write these comments because they wanna see some change or wanna see more creativity within productions and in the scene. Not because of negativity for negetivity's sake.
Saying you hate a track is over the top though. But you have to see the reason behind it.
