    The only "Post" genre that was ever acceptable was "Post Punk". A whole slew of bands came around, born from punk but sounding modern and more directional. They were bands formed during punk but took it in a genuinely new direction. No genre name ever really summed it up as well as "Post Punk" did. It wasn't Nu-Punk cus it was different to punk but it was related to punk.
    Bands such as Killing Joke, PiL, The Cure (early).

    Then bands such as Bauhaus and later The Sisters Of Mercy came along and the term Goth was coined and that was that. I fucking hate the name Goth.

    The more you know.

    My dislike stems from the word being used in regards to "Post Hardcore" and "Post Dubstep" which an increasingly large amount of people I know tend to use..


    I actually heard someone say they played "Post-Techno" the other weekend....

    Completely agree. The major flaw in all those genres is that Dubstep, Hardcore and Techno haven't disappeared or died out. Anything new is a derivative not something instead of.

    Why can't post dubstep just be dubstep, but newer.

    I think I'm "Post Genres"

    Dont forget post-rock and post-metal....both of which kinda point to a fairly defined sound but are still useless terms anyway.

    Another reason why I don't use Beatport, it really is a terrible site IMHO. I also got this email and noticed quite a few DJ's posting it on FB - have not seen one positive reaction yet.

    Call me cynical but I see it as an attempt by Beatport to lead or create subgenres in order to build 'hype' on them, therefore pulling unsuspecting customers in and buying it under the banner of the 'next best thing'.

    I think the prefix "proto" is even more pretentious and would be eminently more satisfying if one wished to establish ones superior levels of "coolness" over the plebs
