Hi all, Back in the 90s Eurodance was considering the mainstream music here in Europe. remember t hose acts like 2 unlimited, maxx, 2 brothers on the 4th floor, T-Spoon etc... at that time the music was for everyone. Eurodance had different kind of followers. no matter if someone was gay or not. it was for everyone and it still is. Eurodance is sadly not mainstream anymore although many acts like inna, cascade are influenced by the old eurodance.
There are still acts outthere who are still making 90s eurodance music. As producer myself i have worked for a while with a couple of 90s stars and for our own act we have done some eurodance ourself too. But sadly it is not mainstream anymore. Commercially eurodance is pretty dead but there is still a large community eurodance fans outthere. and yes a lot of these fans are nowadays gay. i dont know the reason about it and personally i dont have anything against 'gay' fans or artists. but what i noticed it that the type of gays who are still supporting Eurodance are gays who totally exaggerating and showing off the whole world that they are gay. it has become a nuisance in the eurodance scene and slowly this gay community has taken over the eurodance scene. As artist i am also related to an Eurodance label and an insider to their A&R department. often they recieve eurodance demos from... yes exaggerating gays. people totally covered in make up. dragg queens. etc... often they are singing in a way you can hear that they are gay... I mean why would you do that. i am not gay but even if i was gay act just normal like everybody else... i am straight but must i show that of in every music production? no... Eurodance is for everyone but these overreacting gays have killed it from the mainstream. again i have nothing against gay artists or gay fans we even worked with gay artists but my message to everyone is just act normal... PS sorry about my grammar. I am from the netherlands. Regards Friso, Producer Sync Diversity
Yeah, there seems to be an association here, but it's really unfair, because there are also like some cool gay hardcore bands, it's not all eurodance and show tunes.
