SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
You may call it Techno but EDM (Electronic Dance Music) encompasses a broad range of sub genres that you might want look into.
I compiled a list of some of the more popular sub genres so hopefully next time when you hear an electronic song you don't just blurt our "Oh, Techno!"
Important Note before listening: Most EDM tacks last 6-7 mins. This is because EMD tracks are made for DJ's to mix with. The beginnings (and endings) of tracks may sound boring but give them a chance, skip about a min into the song if you want to start hearing the good stuff.
Breaks: Non-quantized back beats with heavy synth use. This is a lesser known genre that is sometimes mistaken for Electrica and may have dubstep breakdowns in each track.
Everybody by Colombo
Lick the Rainbow by Mord Fustang (Miles Dyson Breackfest Edit)
Disco Fever by Utku
Chill Out: You'll hear chill out while shopping at Banana Republic or waiting in a trendy lobby. Very mellow and casual.
You Wish by Nightmares On Wax
Tainted Jazz by Poncho Warwick
Rapture feat. Nadia Ali (Soulside remix)
Drum & Bass: Fast, aggressive, with the occasional chill break down. Perfect for high speed chases and Red Bull infused video game sessions.
Could This Be by Noisia
Undah Yuh Skirt Feat. Mavado by Zeds Dead
Bad Kat by Blokhe4d & Gridlok
Dubstep: Probably the fastest growing genre of EDM currently. A combination of distorted mids and lots of wobble wobble.
Electro House: Another genre becoming more main stream. On any given Friday or Saturday night you'll hear melodic rhythms and hard hitting bass pumping out of clubs in major cities.
