Nice topic!

I'm listening to Electronica (like Plaid, Autechre, Amon Tobin, Boards of Canada, ...) and to norse Nu-Jazz artists like Bugge Wesseltoft, Sidsel Endresen and Nils Petter Molvær the most time.

At the moment I've also discovered some artists with a strong releationship to The Clash like Franz Ferdinand or The Libertines.

I'm also listening to classic Rock and Progressive Rock music like Frank Zappa, Gong, The Moody Blues or The Small Faces.

I am a pretty big fan of Pink Floyd and progressive music in general. Beside that, I listen to 70s and 80s Disco and Electronic music (Jean Michel Jarre and the like).

Hi! Nice, just discovered this topic. Maybe you can help me to find the right genres for my music.

First i listen to things like Hooverphonic, DJ Shadow, Unkle, Kid Loco, K&D, Massive Attack, Morcheeba, Archive, 2Raumwohnung, 4hero, Air, Tosca. I simply called it "Elektro", because "triphop" is too narrow in my opinion. But with elektro i'm not really happy as well.

Second i like artist like Ben Harper,Tom Waits, Ani Difranco, PJ Harvey and older stuff like Nick Drake, Donovan, Melanie, Joan Baez, Carole King. I called it "Songwriter".

Third: things like Dead can Dance, The Mission, The Cure, Depeche Mode (older songs). Gothic? 80ies pop?

Gorillaz, New Model Army, Radiohead, Counting Crows -> i don' t know. rock? pop?

My recommendation: Almost any album by DJ Shadow.

What do you think of using genres AND subgenres?

What do you think of using genres at all?

Nice Topic. Go on !

Svlad. I had a remix CD of The Private Press called The Private Repress. That CD was bloody amazing. It came up missing though sad.gif

I also like many flavors of Electronic: Depeche Mode, Pop Will Eat Itself, Front 242, The Chemical Brothers. I really like some newer stuff, too. Kasabian and The Bravery are some of my current favorites.

I'm a sucker for Industrial (Skinny Puppy), Goth (Sister of Mercy), Progressive Rock (Yes), Oldies (Mamas & Papas) and pretty much any good music that shows talent.

Hello!

I'm a great fan of agressive and depressive music genres. I grew up listening to Punk Rock, Metal and Rock.
As i grew mature i've been exploring the electronic side of music. I often listen to Neurofunk, Darkstep, Electro and Hardstyle to stir things up but when i'm tired or have a headache i balance with New Age.

I find it very hard to define myself with some music genres "per se".

I can't live without the following artists:

  • NIN (Trent Reznor)
  • The Prodigy (Liam Howlett)
  • The Gossip
  • Pantera
  • Dead Kennedys (Jello Biafra)
  • Fear Factory


...among lots of others... smile.gif

...


I don't use them at all

I only use categories like "good for running" or "good for reading a book" or things like "RPG dungeon". And it's not mandatory for every track to be in any of my categories

I do not like to use genre labels created by the industry

I could say scores, but that term is almost as broad as music itself


Now to what I do not like: 99.9% of hits from the radio / YouTube. Plus probably around 90% of what people not interested in scores somehow yet do know [correctly] as music [themes] from movies or TV series

So you listen all day to youtube and radio-stations in order to know what you don't like?

Nooo

I avoid them but they follow me all my life


I once worked in an office. 2 of 7 persons wanted to turn off the radio, 2 persons did not give flying ffff about it but 3 listened it to [without being able of course to tell what was played 10 minutes ago]. And so I ended with a more private room with that 1 other person who did not listened to the radio- finally we had no radio, just silence for work

I once worked in a super-market in the storage room; where there was no radio and no one was advocating for it. Almost every time I had to go the main hall [where the customers were] I had to hold my vomit inside me; especially during the winter holidays when all that crap like "Last Christmas" by Wham! was constantly played

Now I work in home and listen to only what I like

Unfortunately you cannot separate yourself from what you do not like when you use public transport, take a taxi, go for shopping, go to the barber etc.


I never ever turn the radio on. As for YouTube, I very rarely click on some video with hundreds of millions of views- to check it out. Sine the start of YouTube only one song I liked that way; and few others were like OK but not to my taste. And the rest [of those hits] was for me more or less like "Do people really enjoy such kind of musical abomination?"
