11/24/11 - Thursday: "Vocals in Trance & Electronica"

It seems that the vast majority of vocals in trance and electronica make the music sound roughly 10x worse. I mean you have an amazing mix and suddenly a random voice comes in talking about something totally unrelated, it doesn't help the music in any way. They usually have such contrast to the actual music so as to nearly inspire a seizure.

I know there are plenty of exceptions and some of my favorite tracks have vocals, but again I'm saying the *majority* of voices that show up in electronica only bring the music down.

On a side note, a lot of the sessions I've heard on Digitally Imported tend to shift from epic-sounding music to completely awful all within the same session (and all-too-often, even within the same track/mix). You'd think there would be at least a little more consistency.
