GMS - Trance cover band

Recommended Posts

Trolsk    16

I experienced GMS last night at Scandinavia Electronic Festival. I feel I need to write a few lines.

I don't know if it was a dj set with their own music or a standard dj set, but it doesn't really matter, this is about the result. Riktam more or less only played remixes, or covers of other tracks. It was so bad. A new song starts with a well known signature part, and it gradually builds and then everything goes silent and then the generic progressive baseline hits. Over and over again. Every track. He played two Prodigy covers...

It was so generic I left for the second dance floor.

I didn't have any special expectations, but this was bad.

1200 mics was equally uninspiring.

The kids seemed to love it. I guess I'm getting old.

GMS = Generic Music Scientists

 

Besides that, the Scandinavia Electronic Festival was a fun experience.

I had the same experience. Masses really like it, but anyone whos there for psy will always be extremely disappointed.

So is there some kind of pattern that they play mass-friendly sets on Festivals?

seem to, as that's what the kids want, and they are rock n roll stars to them, i had hoped after josef's passing, shaj might come back down to earth
but clearly not yet
they came to australia few years back, and wanted to go, but didn't want to be dissapointed, and by reports glad didn't go.
i think am just getting old.... all you younginss with your boom boom music (swings his walking stick)

Not familiar with GMS but the remix released on X-dream remixes compilation is exactly what you describe.

I know a few tracks such as Jaws, or Do Androids Dream.... I probably listened to their first album a very long time ago but cannot remember, should get back to it for sure.

Last time i saw them this year in goa i think, they played the same/similar terrible set as when i previously saw them in london... Think i made a similar thread to this on here then :/

there have been playing sets mainly consisting of trance covers since 2008 (or so) at least when i saw them here in austria (i was actually attending only for filteria who played directly afterwards).
