Id rather not read through all this shit. Instead im going to explain why. First EDM should just be EDM, sub genre's are Stupid. I mean really Do we have to Define and label every piece Of music we make or hear? Electronic Dance Music can it get more simple than that? Same goes for easy listening, You Know where im going with This....

umm I doubt easy listening needs sub genre's.What, when EDM has TWELVE?
See the various posts above, and explain why you think otherwise.
No, you have absolutely no idea where you're going.
The reason why people put things in subgenres is because (as was the case in the early years of the AP) when everything is lumped into one big category, it makes it HARDER for people to find songs that they are looking for in Flash submissions. Not everyone uses the Audio Forums; some of them have to be searched through lists.
If I were looking for something courageous along these lines and I can't find the song I'm looking for, I have to go with the same old convoluted procedure of the Audio Forum threads, which in 99% of cases turn out to be no more than shameless portfolio advertising threads which don't give me the song I need. Don't believe me? Just look for yourself through the AP history for threads looking for particular songs.
Also, people have specific preferences. It's going to cause a lot of dissatisfaction if I happen to love trance (which I do) but despise dubstep, and everything's lumped into the EDM category.
