Thanks for leaving the insults because that was not insulting at all. It's always nice to have marks against your musical intellect from someone that really knows you. Cheers!
But you see, my house tunes and my breakbeat related music have the snares right. It's just that I don't consider trance to be funky or groovy in the same way as i.e. house so I thought it really didn't matter where I put the snares.
You are talking about being an intellect and you are saying trance is for people who are not funky is using stereotypes. Personally, I do not only listen to one kind of music and I do respect other people's taste of music.
What do you mean by aesthetic when talking about my imagination?
Thanks for the support

for further insight into this debate i suggest listening to cloud 9's more 'jarring' tracks (ie. the ones with the snare, kick and crash on all fours plus a pick-up on every eighth eighth for like nine minutes) as i say, it's like standing under a 20,000 watt bulb but you can't deny the heart is there.

I bought one CD with DJ Misjah and one with DJ Misja Helsloot because I liked that ITWT one so much.
It seems proximus is right, misjah is not the same guy as Misja H. Somebody ought to sue somebody...
At any rate, I listened to the whole DJ Misja Helsloot Creation Day One or whatever CD tonight. And what I said before is still true to me. It's well made, it's good driving music if you're going to drive for an hour or two, and it's impossible to remember afterwards.
BTW, one of the songs IS interesting, not because it's all that good but because it sounds like he's overdriving the 01v input gain for effect...

it has a 'splash!' feel, like diving into an i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-icee lake. in my own distorted mind i could see it working very nicely for a track in a club env. but only in contrast to other tracks (so maybe just even as a passage) where the rhythm pulls oyu one way, then the other, making you it's slave..
..it'd be like perfect for an accelerating tempo bit.
mebbe i'll igve it a shot too

"The forces of Chicane, Airwave & Coast2Coast-like sounds combine to produce this epic piece. I especially like how the snare sound comes in on the first beat out of every two throughout, as opposed to every second beat (unlike just about all dance tunes ever made) - it adds a weird effect to the groove and only makes it easier for you to be taken away in a trance-like state, rather than following the beat mindlessly. A highly established and great track!"
Now how about that you conservative "snare placers" :D :D :D
