And none of these are EDM (aka dance music), these instead are unique genres of electronic music.

 

 

 

Good info DecentLevi.  I've been fully immersed in the electronic music scene for many many years.  You are totally correct in your comments.  

 

Warning, soap-box rant coming:

 

Having acknowledged that, I wanted to point out some personal biases/feelings I have on the ridiculous categorization, subcategorization, sub-sub categorization, that takes place within the electronic music genre.......   namely, I personally detest the over-categorizing that takes place within the electronic music genre.

 

I find the labels used to categorize the types of electronic music to be nonsensical and practically useless (IDM, for example).  To newcomers, the sheer number of categories must be overwhelming.  I don't like placing category labels on music because I view them as boundaries/rules, which strangle the soul of the music itself. I really wish these labels did not exist.  I know many may disagree but that's my two cents.  Perhaps it is something in me that doesn't like being bound by rules, whereas others like these labels in order to make sense of what they are hearing.  I dunno.

 

To be clear DecentLevi, I know  you didn't create the labels and are just reporting the facts so this is nothing against what you wrote as you are, of course, correct.  But in my opinion- screw these dumb labels.

 

Cheers

That's not going to help you much as what people consider important will be very personal. Maybe you could also post the names of some artists/albums you like to give people a point of reference.

I wouldn't mind artists that are in the vein of The Flashbulb & Trentemoller.

Good choice!

 

Trentemoller is one of my favorites, for sure.  I think I have his entire discography to the extent it was released in cd format.  His sound is unique and varies from album to album, but if you like Trentemoller, you might give Moire a try (search Youtube, Bandcamp, etc., for albums "Shelter" and "Hush").
