I have a pretty wide range of taste in music or like to think I do anyway. I can listen to the radio playing pop, hip hop and dance tracks without wanting to turn it off. I have electronic music in my collection. However, I have bought several large compilation CDs in the past that were of trance an Ibiza classics by various DJs.
I have listened in sittings solely of this music and also have had my iPod on shuffle to randomly hear a classic Cream or Ibiza track now and again. I have to tell you that I don’t get it. I don’t know what it is but it’s one style of music that I don’t get. I almost sort of like a CD I’ve got by Alice DJ and I like dance pop artists like Little Boots, Ellie Goulding, Britney Spears and others. So it’snot Dance music as a whole I dislike. I’ve also got electronic music by the likes of Aphex Twin, Dreadzone and others. So it’s not synthesisers and sampling that I dislike either.
Do you need to be off your face to enjoy Ibiza classics? I don’t know, perhaps I just haven’t found the right way in to the music. I have made the decision to delete the large compilation CDs I have from my iTunes collection though. I do feel cleansed now.
