Are People Getting Tired Of Spinnin' Records Electro House "Bangers?"

August 25, 2014 -

So, the official release came out for Martin Garrix and Afrojack's collaborative track, "Turn Up The Speakers," and honestly, I am getting tired of the same electro house tune with some random guy saying the generic word or phrase of the song title right before the drop. Of course, the Spinnin' Records artwork (depicted above) depicts Afrojack's sneakers, as if they have some magic speaker volume control power. The track, like many Spinnin' releases this past year, hype up two DJs teaming up, no matter what the finished product turns out to be. Better yet, the egregious "support list" reminds me of the Pelicans in Finding Nemo screaming "mine, mine, mine, mine," with literally no DJ saying any more than "support," "full support," "cool support," and "nice." So, before you go to either Made In America (in Los Angeles or Philadelphia) or the coveted Electric Zoo festival this coming Labor Day Weekend, just listen to what's being played and ask yourself, "am I giving full support bro?!"

DJ "Feedback" (What their management / label told them to say):

Hardwell: Full support! <--Woah! Versus not full support? That's huge!
Tiesto: Supporting! <--He'll support it today, tomorrow, next week, even on Christmas!
David Guetta: Played @ Tomorrowland! <--Are you sure you remember?
Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike: Supported in our Tomorrowland sets! <--Wait...but, like...Guetta..played it?
Nicky Romero: Supporting <--Supporting the track today, on Thanksgiving, even on Valentine's Day
Steve Aoki: Support! <--Just like everything else, Aoki
W&W: Playing in all our sets! <--Thanks for letting us know...
Dada Life: Supporting <--WOAH...why not "!" ?
Sander van Doorn: Supporting! <-- We get it...
Antoine: Support <--I guess you're not that enthusiastic about it...your support means nothing then!
Tritonal: Supporting <--Despite you supporting it forever, you still aren't as excited without the "!"
Thomas Gold: big!! <--ROOM
Bassjackers: Hugeeee <--OMG YES!
Deniz Koyu: Support in my radioshow <--Radio0o0o0o0o0o
Clockwork: Cool <--Meh.
MAKJ: Support <--Mediocre support level here Mackenzie
Sidney Samson: Supporting <--Another member of the "supporting" cast
Austin Kramer / Sirius XM: Coool <--Meh.
