Its pretty sad that most people just think any time they hear a 'kick" or clubby kick - they think automatically " OMG its techno?!?" I mean, most of the time its an opponent of electronic music. But, besides that, out of all the sub divisions of electronic music - ex Trance, Progressive Trance, Techno, House, Goa Trace ( weird ), Dance, Dubstep. etc. Which is your actual favorite and why?


Enter the Trance - Lets listen to some progressive shall we?

At one time, this forum was all about creation, not listening and/or appreciation.

Just sayin'.

I always seem to graviate towards prog house.
But I also love stuff like tycho, aphex twin and flying lotus, which is also [broadly] categorize as electronic.

It's funny how people relate electronic music with genres that are often related with club music or songs with heavy basses and fast paced beats.

every single genre of music can be part of electronic music as long as you make it with electronic devices.

So I'll go with country


Music is my passion , not my business.

I usually listen to music without ever thinking about what genre it is.

But enough about how cool I am. There is no "best" genre, since musical taste is subjective. My personal favorites are Ambient, IDM and Progressive House.

Electro house is the best one. I think we can all agree here.
