    Default i have a question for you people that like to put labels on things...

    so as i peruse the beatport...i noticed that there are alot of tracks that are now being labeled as "indie dance/nu disco" that are obviously electro...what is going on?

    like this track...

    From pool to pool, the same track can be classified in different genre... who's right?!?

    Genre and Sub-Genre is always tricky to discuss. However, it's down to you to decide if it fit the "suggested" genre. That one has Electro + dubstep clips here and there... how do you call that?!?

    Find yourself a way to find, classify your track, so they're easy to find/match. You can call it the way you want, as long as you stick to your own method.

    the same thing happened with "progressive house"

    i know what i like when i hear it...no matter what it's labeled as...techno, tech house, house..whatever...

    it seems as though people are trying hard to cross label tracks for more exposure...

    i wonder how beatport does it?...or does the artist get to decide what it's genre or sub-genre is?...

    (this is a discussion...this is no way intended to start a fight with anyone for any reason what so ever...i know some of you know it alls have out of control lately)

    last year i read of an argument between anthony rother and beatport. he labeled a track as minimal and beatport changed it into tech house.

    so i guess artists/labels label tracks them selves and beatport decides if they accept it.

    but yea labeling tracks is a science, nearly every artist creates their sub-genre.

    I find beatport particularly annoying as their idea of genre differs from mine. Take the above example Nu Disco / Indie Dance.

    Deep House
    Disco
    Nu Disco
    =========
    Indie Dance
    Nu Rave
    Electro House

    The ========= is a gaping chasm that exists in my head between Nu Disco and Indie Dance.

    That's why I use Juno Download instead.

    you're right, that is most definitely not nu-disco.

    without a doubt it's electrohouse, no mistaking it. fuckin beatport

    dang it! seconds ago, I just posted about kinda the same thing. In answer to your question, I don't think it sounds like Nu Disco to me. It sounds like electro... or is it electro house....
