    Default Electronic Genres/Sub-genres

    So I am finally going to sit down and organize my library as finding tracks while im mixing is getting difficult. What genres and sub genres do you organize your electronic music into? Obviously the basics, house, dubstep, trance, dnb, trip hop... but what other sub genres help you narrow down your track types?

    Any other organizing techniques would be appreciated!

    Much love

    I use trainspotter v2 and get all my tag info loaded from beatport so I pretty much use the beatport tags (house, electro house, deep house, techno, tech house, indie dance/nu disco, etc).

    Their system isn't perfect but 95% of the time it is good enough unless you need to tag crap like moombahcore

    I wouldn't bother getting into all sub genres and stuff.

    Good music is good music.

    I just label them with what the sound like to me tbh ... there is no way you can come up with a one size fits all set of rules, as everyone's ears are different.

    Thats what ive figured out. Im just going through track by track and tagging it in all kinds of ways it might help me remember later on. Really painstaking process but it will be worth it

    just use tainspotter then you get the label, release #, key, cover art, etc, the problem with doing it manually is the pain in the ass and keeping things consistent
