    Default electro: wow...

    so... I'm mostly a trance/deep house kind of guy, and I've been spinning that for around a year now. However, I've been hearing a lot of guys throwing down absolutely massive electro tracks (no not that bs electro that would be tiesto's new album), something akin to B33son's bali comp video.

    My question is this: how do I get into this genre, as a dj, and an educated listener? I'd love to be able to build sets around this... but I dont know where to begin.

    Help? Please? All I've got is a couple disco villains remixes, along with a some scattered tracks.

    Hype Machine is your friend. Imo, about 90% of the music on there is usually electro.

    Just browse through the different songs until you start to find some blogs you consistently like music from (gottadancedirty ^^^ is one of my favorites) and then click the heart and follow it. Once you get a nice amount of blogs favorited you can just go to the "watchlist songs" most of the time and you'll find loads of good music.

    Just a suggestion. That's primarily how I find new music.

    Yeah I mean, that's how I keep up with trance and prog, but like you said, I already have my blog list well compiled... and damn, its going to take a little effort to do the same for a new genre.
