    kinda like human race... i feel like theres only 4 main genres of music.. and then everything stems from those. this is just another gimmick for beatport to try and make money. im all for supporting artists, but beatport is just as corporate as any other music industry. i wish artists would just release wavs/320kbps tracks from their own site or something...
    I'm a fan of all things art. Music, film, photography, acting, dancing. Expression is powerful.

    Oh for the love of Christ...

    "Melancholic House" is the most irritating of the ones I've listened to so far. Should be called "Emo R'n'B".

    If you ask me, there's only 3 genres of (electronic) music; Trance (> 128bpm), Commercial (128bpm) and R'n'B (< 128bpm).

    EDIT: At least we can now categorize Random Access Memories as "Neo New Wave".

    I'm glad I didn't ask.

    Where in those 3 do 'Boards Of Canada' fit ???

    Just had to Google them. If "noise" was a category, they'd go in there :P But their music seems slow (90bpm maybe?) so I guess R'n'B. Same as Deep House and all of that dren.

    Genres are useless unless you want to stick to a narrow niche
    2 categories for me.

    1 - Music I like
    2 - Music to DJ with.

    Music that falls into both categories generally makes playlists.

    SSD Dual drive MBP, VCI100SE, 2 MF's, Audio 8, Echo Audiofire 2, 2x1200's, CDJ800s, Novation Twitch, XoneS2, X1, tons of PA Gear.

    Neo new wave... So we just skipped Neo wave completely? What happens when Nu-Neo New Rave becomes Old Skool Nu-Neo New Rave?

    Though without doubt my favourite has to be "slow/fast" Whoever came up with that must have been splitting their sides at getting paid for such a name How VAGUE can a genre be? That's like calling a genre "some sounds played together".

    Beatport are so two years ago anyway, I'm currently riding the rising wave of Underwater Egyptian-hop Jazztronicacore, some big names coming up like Imhotep?Noshehotep! and PiPiPiPikkiRikkiTikkiTembo. Watch this space!
