    Default A to Z of electronic music genres

    Just how many dance music genres have been 'invented' by journalists trying to attach themselves to a scene? Sure there a lots of of genres that have stood the test of time, but I was wondering if we could manage the A-Z of genres. I've started the list with some of the top of my head, all have been touted as scenes by journo's.

    Let me know what you've got.... The more obscure the better.

    A - Acid house, Ambient
    B - Breakbeat, Balearic, Big Beat
    C - Chill, Chicago
    D - Deep house, Downtempo, Disco, Detroit, Drum & Bass, Dubstep
    E - Electro, Euro House (etc)
    F - Funky house, Fidget, Filth,
    G - Gabba, Garage, Grime, Goa
    H - House, Hip Hop, Hip House, Hard dance, Handbag House
    I - Italo House
    J - Junglist
    K -
    L - Leftfield, Latin House
    M -Minimal
    N - Nuwave
    O - Old School
    P - Progressive house
    Q -
    R - Rave, Rap
    S - Scouse House (my own personal fave), Soulful House
    T - Techno, Trance, Two step, Tribal
    U - Underground, UK garage, Urban
    V - Vocal House
    W - Warehouse

    Yeah there are so many different genres! I was doing a house party a month ago and some dude asked what I usually play. I said electro house he started saying like no you were playing fidget for the past 2 songs and a few electro before that. haha I personally don't care what sub genres I'm playing as long it's a certain sound I like or has a good vibe to it =)
