Please consider separate categories for live musical performance vs all these DJs mixing EDM!
Right now it is WAY too hard to find streamers who are actually singing or playing instruments. I get so frustrated browsing the Music & Performance category because the content I'm looking for is always, ALWAYS buried beneath an absolute mountain of DJs broadcasting their gigs at clubs or mixing prerecorded music from home set-ups.
The funny part is that I don't even necessarily -dislike- EDM! My fondest memories of the late 90s are pretty much a blur of party drugs and glow sticks thanks to the underground rave scene. That said... these streams are too numerous and it feels like I'm scrolling for ages before finding any actual performances in the Music & Performance category. Definitely not finding more than 3 or 4 examples of content I was looking for before losing patience and giving up. This predicament is slowly reprogramming my brain. It's interpreting "dude with one ear tucked close to his shoulder" as the universal gesture for "keep on scrolling, Winny!". I can feel the word "lo-fi" slowly but surely becoming a trigger word. PLEASE HELP.
Thank you! I was just thinking this and how IMPOSSIBLE it is to find anything other than DJing.
The main issue is there are so many people DJing, that if you want to see someone play music via an instrument it's almost impossible. And because there is such a majority of a group on an 'inclusive' section on twitch, it becomes non-inclusive through a group dominating on a shared space.
Hmm this gives me thought about 3 categories:
