Yeah...exactly why I always use the term 'electronic' as the umbrella term, while 'electronica' seems more specific.

But I know where you're coming from...you didn't make up the forum header.

Chameleon, you may want to add Breakbeat, as it's a common sub-genre of electronic music that's not to be confused with "Broken Beat". You'll find info on Wiki.

IDM may be another one to add.

Also, when you get more time, you may consider delving into the types and styles of these sub-genres and the notable characteristics of each.

Breakbeat could do with a mention. Maybe dubstep too. Not so sure about IDM - personally I've always thought of it as more of an umbrella term for the more experimental sides of electronic music. I could be wrong though.

I like the section on trance.. but you could maybe add more examples of more types. Epic (Aly & Fila, Andy Blueman, Daniel Kandi), Tech (Jesselyn, Fabio Stein, BK), Hard (Wragg & Log:One, Kidd Kaos, JTB & DJ Chuck-E) Electro (Marcel Woods, Ferry Corsten, Marcus Schossow).

Does Deadmau5 count as trance, or is his music just strictly house?

House, from what I've heard. Although, varied forms of it.

Yeah, most of his work is progressive house.

I added in Dubstep and for breakbeats I have a whole section for that because it has all of the sub genres...I'm going to let Freebase read it over before I post it and see if I can trim some of the fat.

After I post the Breakbeats section then I'll expand the Trance section.

Electro funk is also it's own little sub genre but it's a small niche and not too many artists do it but I will also add that

It's a great thread, and I've been busy delving into a lot of electronica, mainly dubstep, trip-hop, and down tempo. It would be nice to see some suggested artists or examples for the Broken Beat section, though.

Yeah he used to be into electro and house.. now he's moved onto progressive and minimal tech.. which is what's in demand right now so he's just changing with the times.
