    Stephen Dubstep was good when Skream, Benga etc were at the top of the genre. Once it got commercialised it evolved into a noisy mess. Magnetic Man is the furthest I go into more commercial dubstep nowadays

    The way I see Techno is that in Techno the electronic, synthetic, artificial aspect of things is not only the chariot by which the music is delivered, but the entire point of it. House wants you to dance, Trance wanna make you feel elevated, Techno wants you to listen to how robotic, artificial timbres it oscillates. For this reason I see Techno as the purest electronic genre (no bashing to others).

    I would've chosen something a bit more chemical and less 2step for Garage, though.. 🐇

    @Toni calm your tits I'm new to this music. I came from rap but it's shit now. I'm just asking. I have one more question.I see frenchcore and newretrowave music (u know modernised 80s stuff) booming. Are these kinds or electronic music the future? Or u see something else coming? As far as I know EDM is kinda dying

    I’m literally here bc the song choices are great, but also I’ve been into EDM since the goddamn 90s and the EDM Twitter genre police fucking scare me 🤣

    reogaro That's not gabber either. If you were there you should know. Gabber came on the scene in 95-96 and seems to now a days be associated with an earlier style starting back in 1991 or so. The thing is original genre names over the decades has changed from one generation to the next. The new guard keeps confusing via mixing and matching genre names the old guard once used. It's a multi- faceted mess and certainly needs be simplified.
