    Default Electronic Music Genre Guide

    I'm assuming this is the place for a topic such as this, but I apologise in advance if I am mistaken and beg forgiveness from the almighty mods and only ask that they move it to the correct section


    Now with that out of the way, I can continue on to the main content: music genres. We all have at least a vague idea of what music goes into what category (at least I hope for your audience's sake), but then there come the gazillion sub and sub-sub-sub genres that throw most people off, or is that just me?

    Well I found this pretty comprehensive electronic music genre guide that not only goes into the history of how electronic music came to be, shows the development and progression of the genres and let's you listen to samples of the selected sub-genre.
    It's much simpler if shut up, give the link and let the guide do the showing

    P.S. Do not let this guide be an inflexible golden handbook of music categorisation, using your own knowledge is also key. But this helps out quite a bit at first.

    I love that list, it's a great starting point, despite them being completely wrong about Epic House - they went for Pop tunes rather than the 15-minute mixes coming from Blue Amazon, Way out West or Force Mass Motion.

    Well there goes several hours that I'm never going to get back. Thank you. I feel informed and entertained at the same time.

    Really is a neat thing, though.

    Ishkur's guide is nice; it taught me a lot when I was first really getting into electronic dance music, and I still refer to it occasionally. It has its limits, though: mainly, it's a few years old, so it has gaps. For instance, it doesn't have anything to say about electro house, which is one of the most popular genres of EDM (or subgenres of house, if you prefer) today.

    Wow i expected that to be dog shit, so when it loaded i thought "yeah this dog shit" but its actually really good.
    A bit American in perspective but pretty good all the same despite the fact there seems to be a Dirty South version of every kind of music hahaha

    Viva la Ishkur!

    Love that guide, especially the "NOT Trance" portion lmfao!!!

    edit....apparently he removed it in version 2.5 but it was a typical giant, over the top, Tiestoish DJ worship synth plateau.....looped...
