Is Underground House Music Dying?

I have come to realise in the past few months how much the underground house music scene is changing and slowly becoming more commercial.

Whilst sitting in a small commercial bar, having a few quiet drinks to the sound of Rhianna, followed by Justin Bieber I suddenly heard a change in the music, the song next was Julio Bashmore – Au Seve, which was then followed by more typical, cheesy RnB tracks. 

Having been told of this track along with others, such as Maya Jane Coles and Duke Dumont – The Giver being played in many commercial venues across Leeds, I ask you, is underground house music dying? What is classed as underground music nowadays? 

I used to love this scene more than anything (and still do), but having been to several venues (of which I will not name) recently, only to see violence including people being bottled as well as Jersey Shore like ‘posers’ prancing around with no shirts on barging into people, who are just simply wanting to have a good time.

This scene used to be about the love of the music and the love of other people and I, along with many others are scared that this is coming to an end. Seeing the likes of Circo Loco becoming more of a ‘cool trend’ than about the music, after their long, amazing history just hurts me inside. 

What does everyone else think of this? I think it is a great topic for discussion.
