    This one really just went straight to the heart. It was O.K. when Eminem said "Nobody Listens To Techno". I laughed. But here we have Dr. Dre walking through the club in a motorcycle jacket grabs his Dr. Pepper and walks towards the DJ who is playing some type of crappy rave track circa 1991 with no dance floor.

    Dr. Dre puts his Dr. Pepper on the turntable, pushes DJ Cornball, a white candy kid, off to the side and suddenly in the "Aftermath", the dance floor is packed.

    That is the commercial. Nice one.

    Now I'm off to Wal-Mart to buy cases of Dr. Thunder as a protest.

    At the local grocery store the knockoff is called Dr. Perky. Always found that to be entertaining. Tastes more like the real Dr. Pepper than Diet Dr. Pepper does too.

    It was O.K. when Eminem said "Nobody Listens To Techno".



    Personally i like many different genres of music, i even have a few Eminem instrumentals. Most of the people i know who collect Techno also collect other genres of music because they are open minded. We can name Hip Hop artists and tracks. I bet any Techno producer could name many different Hip Hop artists. But Eminem is so ignorant when it comes to Techno he thinks that Moby is a Techno producer. That`s as clueless as a Techno producer saying Mc Hammer is a Rapper.

    America does Hip-Hop in clubs better than any where else in the world I'd imagine, (and from what I've seen in Flo Rida videos) that's got to be tough competition. Time to start stealing their beats again maybe?

    It still compares like nothing to the rave scene. Or should I say Electronic Music Festival Scene?

    I like how Dre walked up to the DJ and slowed his beats down.

    I heard a story once about Jeff Mills playing a gig in New York. When Mills was finishing he left the next DJ with the 909 playing. The DJ was trying to mix to the 909 and he slowed the 909 down to match the speed of his record. Mills came over and just sped the tempo back up on him.

  • TIM over 6 years ago

    Just saw the commercial.

    No problems here. If you pay attention to Dre he is not dogging on the style music but the tempo.

    If dre thought the music was crap he would have changed the record in some way.

    Imo dre was just saying the style didn't work for the crowd and the tempo was too fast to "get down" too and slowed it down with the dr.pepper can.

    I think this thread was is overeacting.

    It doesn't knock electronic dance music at all. If anything it knocks super star electronic music dj but certainly not electronic dance music.

    If you do take it that it does than you are not living in the real world or, like bones who did this thread, wrapped up in dj performances.

    No offense bones.

    Dr dre came from dance music. I have talked to dr dre about dance music when we worked out in the same gym back in 1997. He is very knowledgeable about dance music. Occasionally his image gets the better of him like when he tried to be a tough gangster but when it got tough he left the scene. Which was of course a smart decision.

    Dre does not disrespect dance music but who doesn't laugh at superstar trance epic dj's like in the ad?!

    It's cool that you mention you talked to the dude...I mean for real. I am sure he knows something about dance music because "Panic Zone" was not a rap record by any means.

    I myself was hired by Eminem in 1997 to DJ a homecoming party after his first year of touring...Eminem also knew about "the scene". Detroit is obviously a place where you can't hide it's own history, which is why it is a ghost town in the first place.

    The odd thing about that was it was almost like the movie 8 Mile, where he wins the battle, and then I spun. Techno. And we all know nobody listens to techno...In Detroit though I was always known as a rave DJ. Even today.

    That video is funny and t making fun of boring djays not being able to get them girls on the floor, and yes he uses those headphones for no other reason than promote them, cause he has a licensing thing going on with Sony (i think). He comes across natural making fun of himself and the whole ad + video and that is, what makes me like it.

    No it doesn't. I'm always the first car off the freeway back tracking my way through Compton any time there is a traffic jam.

    "Wu-Tang Ain't Nuthin To F*ck With".

    Just for sh*ts and giggles I should play Tim Dog "F*ck Compton" while drinking Dr. Thunder and DVR it for Youtube. It would have been even more fun when I had NY tags on the car.

    Obviously this is bigger then Dre, Dr. Pepper and me. I am totally not paranoid. Me and my girl go to the Roadshow swap meet in Inglewood all the time. That is where NWA actually met in the 1980's. It's on Redondo Beach Blvd. of Crenshaw and you got to drive down Crenshaw for a good portion once you get off the 405. Granted, that is not Compton and more like Inglewood, but honestly, no California ghetto scares me.

    I mean if I was on a bicycle? Maybe. But my car has 340 hp.

    Eminem use to frequent the Detroit rave scene and even was booked at a few. Em even went to Jeff Mills' day after Thanksgiving show at St Andrews hall. So he knows what he is doing...

    As for the ads...DR Pepper is just following a theme...It started with DJ J, and moved on to Dr Love (Gene Simmons), and maybe has run its course with Dr Dre.

    It isn't a knock on EDM...just doing what the DR orders.

    Of all things, the craziest response I think music ever had on the ghetto was once in Houston when I was with these two girls who had stopped to get gas and had "Emerge" by Fischerspooner blasting out of this Blazer. No block commanders wanted any part of that.

    i was thinking the same thing when i saw them fisrt. They seem to delivera good bass and decent oopmpf, look betther than Sennheisers, but are in the sae league as those Sony's everyone and hos dog is uisng in the states atm. well actually that is the Sony headphone everyone loves wth a better stylking?
    I was atone point evn considering trying them out, but the again Sennheiser HD 25 are the MK2 of Techno-can' do nuttin about it - why mess with a perfectly perfect product in the first place ?
