Sub-genres are fun!

I'm curious what someone thought was the difference between dance and electronica/dance in the umbrella "electronic" -- is one acoustic? Is one more electronic than the other? Food for thought.

 

I'm sure the genres are not closely scrutinized, this is the FREE music archive and as such has no vast endowment or income to support scrupulous examinations of genre specificity, congruity, etc...

 

I've just been introduced to Ishkur's guide to electronic music at http://techno.org/electronic-music-guide/ and while admittedly subjective, it's very fun to listen to the clips and see where things fall and such.

 

In other exciting news, I made my first song over 2 minutes long. Whee!

hey Interrupt -- more about our genre tree at http://freemusicarchive.org/genretree

we're always open to suggestions. We just dont want to list genres that only have one track, and it's very hard to categorize music these days...why cant everything just fit into a mold?? Just kidding, it's better this way.

but hey, thanks for sharing Ishkur's guide, it is very fun. Although I'm not sure it's something we all can agree on ("hip-hip was invented by Blondie" ??? oh wait I scrolled down and see that was a joke...*phew!*)
