Official Electronic Dance Music Thread

Post Up!
DO NOT TALK ABOUT DRUGS IN HERE
Are you completely at a loss for electronic music?
Don't know what you like?
Don't know a specific genre?
Iskur's Guide to Electronic Music is your BEST friend!
And Wikipedia can be your buddy too.

There are four common forms of Electronic Dance Music (EDM); Trance, House, Drum And Bass, and Hardcore.

Among those, there are countless hundreds of other related genres that each have a specific sound, and a specific fanbase.

But, to give you a brief overlook of the group, here's a description of each:

Trance:
Developed in the 1990s. Trance music is generally characterized by a tempo of between 130 and 160 BPM, featuring repeating melodic synthesizer phrases, and a musical form that builds up and down throughout a track. It often features crescendos and breakdowns. Sometimes vocals are also utilized. The style is arguably derived from a combination of largely electronic music such as ambient music, techno, and house. The origin of the term is ambiguous with suggestions that the term is derived from the Klaus Schulze album Trancefer or the early trance act Dance 2 Trance though it is likely that both these uses are linked to the perceived ability of a drum beat to induce altered states of consciousness. As this music is almost always played in nightclubs at popular vacation spots and in inner cities, trance can be understood as a form of club music.

House:
A style of electronic dance music that was developed by dance club DJs in Chicago in the early to mid-1980s. House music is strongly influenced by elements of the late 1970s soul- and funk-infused dance music style of disco. House music takes disco's use of a prominent bass drum on every beat and developed a new style by mixing in a heavy electronic synthesizer bassline, electronic drums, electronic effects, funk and pop samples, and reverb- or delay-enhanced vocals.

Drum And Bass (D'N'B):
Also known as jungle which emerged in the early 1990s. The genre is characterised by fast tempo broken beat drums (generally between 160–180 beats per minute) with heavy, often intricate basslines. In the 2000s, drum and bass is still considered an underground musical style, but it has nevertheless had a significant influence on popular music and culture.

Drum and bass began as an offshoot of the UK breakbeat hardcore and rave scene of the late 1980s, and over the first decade of its existence there were many permutations in its style, incorporating elements from ragga, dancehall, electro, funk, hip hop, house, jazz, heavy metal, reggae, rock, techno and trance.

Hardcore:
Often referred to as just "hardcore", is a style of electronic music that originated in the early-to-mid-1990s in multiple locations including Rotterdam, Frankfurt and Newcastle, Australia. The style is typified by a fast tempo, and the rhythmic use of distorted and atonal industrial-like beats and samples.

LOLWUT, I'm not playing for 30 hours, just one hour out of the 30 hours.

I would rather listen to ah.fm anyway, their yearmix is much much better.

edit:
why was I not told about the MDT =(

I'm hoping to score the DJ spot at a party this weekend. They're looking for D&B, House, and Trance. I'm excited for the party even if I don't get the spot.

My brother turned down a $1000/3 hour gig for Christmas Eve. I wanted to slap him.

For new years.... I'll probably go to downtown San Diego fairly drunk, and make it back fairly drunk.

Hell yeah...seeing Glaude and Charles Feelgood for free in DC on January 1st. I've never seen Glaude before, but Feelgood is the ****ing man. His sets are amazing...he'll drop a classic old-school early 90's house song, then a current europop song, then a DnB heavy hitter, then stop the music and play something like MIA's "Paper Planes", then repeat. Every single person in the crowd gets their god damn wish fulfilled.

My NYE just opened up. I live about a mile south of Congress. I'm not sure if I want to spit up $60 for the show, though...
