Is it me or does Europe have the best musicians?

Or maybe is just the fact that my favorite type of music is dominated by Europeans, which is of course I talk about all the genre falling under electronic music. correct me if I’m wrong but I once told House and Techno were once America as they were both created here in America under African-American communities, but it wasn’t long till the Europeans not only dominated both of these genres but they also elevated them to a whole new level. along the way they created more sub genres out of these music, Trance, Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Break Beats being a few of them.

I seriously don’t know if it’s me or does it always sound like European music is always ahead of its time. I think Europeans even do better under our genre of music as in the past I’ve heard a few European musicians and disc jockeys composed hip hop/rap beats from my point of view sound a lot better than what our musicians here in America do. They even mix the elements of our music a lot of the times with theirs and still sound outstanding.

But anyways, what are your thoughts on European music? Do you think they are better than us yourself?

I also must not forget that a few of the big genres in America were actually created by the Europeans. Pop and heavy metal being two of them and I think punk rock might be another.

  • I wouldn't say the "best music" but they certainly have a quality to the music they create that resonates with people all over the world, people under many different circumstances and walks of life. I can only speculate as to what it is.
