I'm not sure enough of us could fill out an 80 minute list of just hip-hop, especially when you consider the tastes of the DI newbies. Why keep it to 8 when 16 could compete in Retro Island II?

A best of 2010 would be OK by me, but I probably could have made a more informed entry when I was in ZOMGYEARENDLISTZ mode.

What if we did a Genre Mini Island, where each contestant picks their own genre to represent? Friggin' cobbler could give us a hip hop list, somebody could do chillwave, somebody could do jangle pop, LM could have his retro, I'd be keen to do a shoegaze list, etc.

I suppose ranking the lists would be VERY apples and oranges though, so maybe it wouldn't work.

Also, I don't see how that would differ significantly from traditional DI, especially for people like me who dedicated their list to one sound. I wouldn't protest it though.

I've decided to go with Punk Island, I think. At least for now. I've got the widest selection of artists to choose from in that genre cause I'm a collector and a nerd like that, either for a mini if one comes up or DI IX.

How many lists have there ever been dedicated to a single genre, with absolutely nothing outside of it? I can only think of a couple, and that's allowing for more broad umbrella genres.

I mean, even my limited Instrumental and Kiwi Island lists genre-hopped to a reasonable extent.

I'm not saying it won't be unique to some degree, just not unique enough to justify its own game. We all, broadly, choose a genre to represent with our lists, some more exclusively than others. All this DI would accomplish is reveal what our comfort zones are, I think.

Again though, if it would give me an opportunity to make a power/jangle-pop disc, I wouldn't have any hard feelings.

That could be fun. I could get REALLY specialized with Punk Island.

I'm not sure if I'm ever going to participate in DI again. It's not that I can't make lists (I made my DI7 list in 45 minutes), it's that I don't have the time to listen, and I don't feel like it's fair for me to compete without listening to everyone else.

Mini-DI?

Drunken PFan Coy ... Maybe, We'll See.

To be fair, we had 10 weeks this time. 10 weeks to listen to 15 lists. That's less than 4 hours of listening time per week. Not a hard feat to accomplish, in my opinion.

I'd love to make a jazz list. However, it has the same problem as punk and hip-hop lists in the sense that I'm not sure how much appeal it would have.

agreed, it's just all a matter of making time for it. i hope i don't start an argument or anything and i'm not picking on peefaroni but that's one of the reasons i pulled out of di. the whole point of di (imo) is to introduce people to new music, plus i like the listening diaries and getting people's feedback. if people don't listen and post about it then i have no idea what anyone thought of it which for me anyway defeats the purpose for me.

but like i said, i'm not picking at anyone or anything, just wanted to get it off my chest since it was (sorta) brought up.

Personally, I wouldn't be a fan of doing this. I mean, like LM said, isn't this basically what we do anyway? My DI7 list was more or less a hip-hop/African beat genre list. Plus, having one person do each "genre" will be a mess, imo. Rankings would probably end up being difficult to make, like Ax said. And, then we can't have two hip-hop lists? Nah, fuck that.

I'm all for another mini-DI, just not one based on genre.
