This question doesn't seem to fit any of the other "piano" forums.
Found this to be fast and fun, looking into recreating it on my Casio.
Anyone else attempt this type of piece on their keyboard?
(these are just two of them, SN Studios has lots more...)

Get about 10 seconds in, you'll see what I'm talking about...





Casio PX-S3000
Nope, no issues with it at all.
Took lessons from 1960 to 1969, stopped at age 16.
Started again in July 2020 at age 67. Lots more fun now!

I'm not so sure about the second one, but except that the dancing is different, the first one reminds me of ....wait for it... DISCO!

Enjoyed the tunes. Took me back to my teenage years of listening to EDM.

I hate this kind of music, I could not stand more than 20 seconds of listening. This kind of "music" is too robotic (and annoying) to my taste. Of course, they are fit for purpuse (besides being irritating smile ) when it comes to some dancing styles.


I will hazard a guess though. I don't think you can have that kind of sound on a keyboard. Maybe with samplers plus sequencers, but that may require a lot of work. I think you will need the type of instrument and/or softwared that I think are called loopers.

Look at videos of Elise Trouw or Neon Vines, for example.

I think it's eminently possible as it seems quite simple musically.

You might need some software to do the vocal effects: I've seen some channel on YouTube that runs old hits through vocal pitch correction, and one function on that program does the vocal effect similar to that which Cher made popular. Maybe it would be easier to use a PC to do the multi tracking than using any onboard multi-tracking. Sounds don't seem unusual to those available on modern keyboards. Of course, you might get better quality synth from analog gear, but hey ho..

I heard auto-accompaniment patterns similar to this on the Genos.

Those images are just fine. it's just great ... if you turn the sound down to zero.

As for the sound ... I play that music all the time.

There's a switch next to the kitchen sink.
I flip the switch, the garbage disposal turns on, and all the waste in the drain gets ground up.
The sound is just like the music posted above. As is the physical content.

As the title says it's "Euro dance".

There were two questions:

Does anyone play this?

Well, I guess by now anyone who does, won't say it out loud after all the bad-mouthing of Euro dance. 😉

The indirect question: "...looking into recreating it on my Casio."

Probably there's a "Euro dance" or two within the various accompaniment styles, so choose a style, hit play and play some chords and melodies. Sing along if you are brave enough.

Then the more "professional" approach is to use the various sounds, effects, arpeggiators and whatnot and actually make your own music. There are probably videos on YouTube going through the techniques and cliches of 90's Euro dance. (The golden days before dub step and bass drops.)

Probably the PX-S3000 can do both to some extent. Maybe you won't sound like E-Type.

And any of the above was not meant to say:
- I hate it.
- That's stupid. Don't do it.
- No, the Casio can't do it.
- No, you can't do it. It needs a Master's degree in EDM.

So, go for it! 😀

And if the PX-S3000 isn't enough then Casio has the CT-X models and had the now discontinued XW-G1 and XW-P1 if you want to remain brand loyal.

(I don't know anything about music production.)

Macmacmac, you’ve unearthed another of my otherwise unpublished tidbits of personal life , this one i discovered 25 years ago when grappling with the task ..... project of unplugging from the ubiquitous tentacles of mainstream’s apparatus .... such simple solutions - knobs or buttons - thank you George Carlin, for turning off perceived offenders be it volume/noise , sights or other phenoms of our engrained “pop culture/conventional wisdom” .... was a good starter especially with tv and other outlets that natter on 24-7-365 .... but lets face it, we’re old __s 👴 and less likely to find refuge in today’s young person’s pleasure .... to enjoy the fun in the genre OP seeks .... let me cue up some Lawrence Welk or Benny Goodman or Stones or FleetwoodMac or other old ___ s while you consider that 🤔

As to OP’s quest, for obvious reasons stated, i cannot peg the genre in question ..... to hazard a guess with my memory & ears, it has hints of rave / trance / clubbing to it except in a more modern - repetitive - version, whatever slot it fits might not be easy for a DP’er to duplicate BUT with ample time & effort experimenting on Casios or other boards with lots of sounds/beats toys .... plus perhaps some familiarity with techniques a la Tomita, Vangelis and the like .... and copious amounts of caffeine or other stimulants, should be to able to produce the sought after fun. Good luck!

Trance is a holy genre compared to this style even though those videos made me unearth some old trance Tiesto tunes...it was fun.

OP: You'd just need a synthesizer and a DAW. and that's pretty much it. If you like to improvise on bassline and drum machine, you can do it using a simple MIDI controller. No need for a piano.

Oh and EDM (disco,trance,techno...) isn't as popular in the states as much as it is in Europe and elsewhere, as far as I know. And many posters here are from the US, plus this is a piano oriented forum... so...I believe you won't get great answers here.

No. This is called trance:


Come on, people! It's like you are calling quickstep foxtrot or bluegrass country or son bossa nova. Show some respect for the art.

An abomination.

And not because of the Casio.

(And I'm not an expert on EDM genres. They are confusing.)

Well I know it's not Mozart, but it you are running, working out, or just want something a little more active than a Polonaise, it's fun music.
Makes you want to move...
If you don't see that, that's ok. But, to paraphrase Marty McFly, your kids (or for some of you, your grand kids) are gonna love it.

Reminds me of the generic auto accompaniment of many keyboards. My Montage has an array of presets with motion sequence exactly like this. All you have to do is press a few chords with the left hand and a melody line with right, and an ever changing song will play as long as you like!


The companions I can't live without: Kawai Acoustic Grand, Kawai MP11SE, Kronos2-73, Yamaha Montage8, Korg D1
Other important stuff: Studiologic NC2X, NI Komplete Ultimate 11, Sonuscore Elysion and Orchestra, Pianoteq 7, Experimenta Due.
