    Default Is there a term for this music/genre yet?



    That. It seemed to start with Nari & Milani's Atom and Jewelz & Scott Sparks Toxic, I've heard a few others in recent months but no names. Everyone calls it prog house but it's not, and I'm not searching through every prog house song ever to find these things because I absolutely DESPISE prog house and cut+paste massacre it has become. Surely there must be a term floating round now for these kind of tracks?

    Tubular Bellcore?

    Blue Man Groupstep?

    Melbourne House

    Melbourne Electro

    Electro Bounce

    Subkick Electro

    Here's a few links to check and makes sure we're on the same page:



    Pioneer XDJ-RX//Rekordbox & Ableton Push 1//Ableton 9 Suite
    15" MacBook Pro 2017//Quad Core i7 @ 3.1GHz//16GB RAM//1TB SSD//AMD 560 4GB GPU

    It's just progressive house without vocals.

    The only difference between a track like that and a track like Levels is that the former is towards the heavy end of the genre, whereas Levels is softer. It's like the difference between a Russell Watson track and a Pink one. They're both Pop, but completely different ends of the scale. This ridiculous genrebation - where people just start adding words to the beginning or end of existing genres, to further subcategorize - which is going on these days can do one as far as I'm concerned. Because if it carries on like this, sooner or later, we'll have "Uplifting Melodic Vocal Progressive House Core Step".

    Oh, and the biggest example of this part of the progressive house genre is Sandro Silva & Quintino - Epic.

    Indeed. Although personally I prefer the term "Trance", even if it's not 140 bpm anymore

    It's certainly nothing at all like Progressive House or Trance. Prof Strange seems to be on the right track.

    OH wow I COMPLETELY forgot about Epic.

    But yes Prof Strange is completely on this. That's four terms I can slap into Google to find more of what I'm liking!

    mdcdesign, subgenre's are a thing and always have been. In fact, pop is not a genre, just a collection of genres that have mainstream selling power.

    I'd say, as in the other thread, rhythmic synth house.
