Mansion Nightclub Wants More Commercial Music

Mansion Nightclub Wants More Commercial Music

What is a good night out at a cub without your Top 100 Hits? It seems as though Mansion nightclub, in Miami believes there is no other music besides commercial music. According to Miami New Times, the nightclub recently stopped DJ Dennis Ferrer during his set for not playing music that was "commercial enough." The funny thing is that the DJ Dennis Ferrer is a relatively commercial DJ.

There are so many things wrong with commercial music that it would take years to get through the list. One of the main issues surrounding mainstream garbage is that it lacks substance. I've noticed that some of my favorite songs have never been played on the radio (in California). If you turn to any hip hop, R&B, Pop related station you are guaranteed to be bombarded with every Rihanna song, all of Adele's latest songs, some local artist, and oh! maybe they will mix in a throwback jam, but only if it is a good day. It is mind numbing how the same artists will be singing on four different stations. Would it really hurt to play a song that few people have heard before?

People like Adele and Drake rose to fame because they were relatively unknown and made songs that people liked. However, it seems that once these artists become famous their songs are played day and night, allowing the charm their music once carried to slowly wash away.

Nightclubs are meant to get people to dance and what better way to get up and dance than with 'We Found Love'? It is understandable why mansion would only want commercial music since they attract a certain clientele that only likes to dance to commercial music. However, playing underground songs every once in a while may be good for the mind.
