    Default your electronic genres

    what is your favorite

    You're missing a bunch.

    breaks, dubstep, pystrance, tech-house, idm, minimal techno for starters.

    almost agree with you. those can all be considered sub-genres except maybe breaks and dub-step can probably go under that.

    stadium/epic Trance and psytrance have almost nothing in common. There are tons of people out there who love psytrance but hate Tiesto style epic trance. I'd say IDM and Ambient are two totally different genres too. When I think of Ambient I think beatless soundscapes like Tangerine Dream, Vangellis, FSOL's lifeforms etc. IDM on the other hand is generally a lot more beat oriented even if those beats are abstract. I'd say Trip-Hop is almost a sub genre of IDM than IDM a sub genre of Ambient.

    I was under the impression the first artists considered IDM were pretty much post-techno... and based on the differences between techno and IDM I don't think it makes too much sense to lump IDM under techno. Also, since there are so many elements of other genres utilized by IDM artists it would be hard to put it into a sub-genre of any one in this list.

    I never payed attention to the then IDM sub genre. Ive always hated subs, they just cloud everything up. but considering what ive recently read, i would have to agree that IDM could be its own genre.

    deep dish is the only trance off-hand i can think of that i like. and that's only because i saw them at EDC last year and they put on a phenomenal show in the coliseum. the lighting and the music were so synched. it was amazing.

    not a big trance fan though. some progressive, some psy and maybe even a little goa is alright. but it's pretty boring in my opinion.

    i'm more of a dnb/jungle, electro, breaks girl myself. but i was more into hip-hop and ska before electronic music, so that makes sense. i like seeing what bands people like compared to what electronic music they like.
