I get the feeling these people are glossing over ambient music, but maybe they'll catch on later. Seems like the youth always returns to some form of dance music being the mating ritual that it is.

Oops...sounds like a bit behind the time ;D On the other hand, the states was never a leader or up to date when it comes to electronic music.

You're right, we only have  Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Michael Stearns, Bill Laswell, Vir Unis, A Produce, Thom Brennan, Mark Isham, Jonn Serrie, Harold Budd, Patrick Ohearn--nobody innovative or important.

I guess it's been 15 years since the Prodigy were the poster children for dance music in the US... time for a new round of media articles saying electronic music is taking the country by storm (Prodigy never did...).  Wasn't about 5 years or so ago that Richie Hawtin (Plastikman) was on the cover of a bunch of magazines?  I love his music - but to think he was going to take over the US is laughable... :-)

There's more electronic in pop though lately - rap and pure pop both have really hit the synths big time in the last decade.   It'll all come to a head at some point and we'll have a "Nirvana crushes hair metal ballads" moment.   then again maybe not - with so so so many choices...  there doesn't have to be a watershed moment anymore.  It's like tv... now that there are more than 3 stations... a big mini-series event ... just doesn't matter.

In reference to dance music maybe so, but I think he was replying to this part of what you said here:

You didn't specify any genre so I think drone on was just pointing out the obvious.

The original topic says (Dance) right in the subject... so I sort of assumed...  dance.   4 on the floor.  whillygigging around the dance floor or at least chin nodding..   or perhaps some good old school pogo action.
