So most know I do like a lot of electronic music. I also like dancing. The art of dry humping in a packed club is a movement created by my generation that I fully support.

BUT

Most of the stuff I did is either weird and not really danceable (Andy Stott) or minimal and garagey (early Detroit, Underground Resistance, etc..) I love Daft Punk as much as the next guy, but the whole generation of dumb kids in neon to take MDMA and listen to Skrillex nauseates me. I mean, for one thing MDMA is good for all music. Fucking Mozart would sound better on MDMA for chrissakes.

I've been dating this girl for a few months now. Her taste in music, literature and film is garbage. But at age 25 I have realized to stop caring about that shit, and maybe if she doesn't want to go to Prurient shows with me or not is a non-issue.

I need acts that fall between the shit she listens to and like, Aphex Twin. I want to go to clubs with her and not seem like a disinterested prick and therefore not have sex. I actually went to a Boys Noize show with her, and didn't fully despise it.

So, can anyone help me find some non-shitty EDM to listen to?

Thanks.

If you really don't care why are you asking us about music that would help you getting laid in a club, of all places?

Non-shitty EDM? The answer is there is no such thing.

have you talked with her about your taste?
has she shown any interest?



sorry, but the way you put all this is a bit..i dont know, it reminded me observing heavy metal kids, getting clean cut looks when they reached 20 and me thinking oh its about the girls. not a bad thing, but you know, you have to do things, because at least a small part in you, really wants to do them. and for what it is worth, generally, its nice thing to be open minded, isnt it?
