Who likes any genre of electronic music?

I grew up really liking trance and house, but took a few year hiatus when I started having kids.

Thanks to My Little Pony and lots of sick MLP electro remixes, I started getting back into it and now I'm really hooked. I never even heard of dubstep until MLP, but now it's probably my favorite genre (and I think proof that ADHD is a load of government/union created BS).

I really don't like how the term "EDM" has come up - to me it's just a blanket term for all electronic music and pandering to the mainstream American market that is too lazy to figure out the difference between the dozens of different, cross pollinated electronic genres (plus I don't go clubbing and dance anymore - so I just like listening to it and the "D" doesn't make much sense).

Big fan, since...for as long as I've been on this planet. I don't want to sound like a hipster, but I don't like how commercialized it's become. Although, on the positive side of commercializing it, it's opened a lot of doors for new artists to showcase their work, like this year's big hit, DVBBS - Tsunami.

You mean stuff like Yaz? I listened to that waaaayyy back when. Very little music I don't like. Can't stand rap and that real twangy, "country rock".

Old school techno! That's awesome!

I don't follow anything mainstream and I never heard of DVBBS - but that song is pretty awesome Awndray... You're not like my evil twin in Ontario are you (or perhaps I'm your evil twin in Alberta)?

I really wish I could find more hard, upbeat stuff like Knife Party that is dubstep, hard style, electro house, and an pinch of drum and bass all thrown into a blender (with a few crazy pop-culture references I grew up with):

Zomboy, Skism, and Excision are pretty good. I like Skrillex too, but he's a bit played out... although I never get tired of watching the video for Bangarang or listening to Reptile.

Scary eh? (The twin thing.)

You may have heard some Porter Robinson or Hardwell, though they are starting to become mainsteam it seems. I tend to download Tiesto's podcasts a lot lately. For a long time I was hooked on Armin van Buuren. In the 90's I remember listening to The Prodigy, Massive Attack, Portishead and Josh Wink.

I'm more into Deep House type of stuff these days, though I do listen to just about anything, including ambient, chillout tunes when I want to relax - Aphex Twins, Brian Eno, Boards of Canada

Having said that, I listen to all types of music. Like BruceW, I can't stand twangy country. On weekend mornings, I like to listen to The Ongoing History of New Music with Alan Cross. He has a podcast too.

I don't know half the playlists I have on the iPhone. Chillstep, mixed with Tiesto, okenfold...that kind of stuff.

I have a lot of remix/mashups

Still Fav song : dj kemo ft free agents...it's old school and rare. Had to talk directly with dj kemo to get a high quality version of the song.

Tiesto, Oakenfold, AVB - a trip down memory lane.

I just found this video on Youtube - that's pretty sweet how Dubstep is made, and I think further proof that ADHD is a bunch of government sponsored nonsense:

Thanks for that. Bruce.
Had two girlfriends that were biiiig fans, emo before it was a thing.
Always liked Yaz, Alison's voice was just amazing.

As for the "ol' folks" listening to dubstep, the open-mindedness is heartening.
For us oldphart heavy metal lovers, it isn't such a stretch as for someone that grew up on Sinatra.

I have been rock'n Jpod's beats lately but it's not quite dubstep though.

I'm more of a guitar & drum kind of guy, but I do like some industrial stuff; Skinny Puppy, NIN, Big Black. Not "electronic" per se, but they do include electronics.

I used to listen to ASOT all the time. Was a big fan of AVB. I hung out with him one night in Ottawa many moons ago. I'm haven't downloaded any episodes in a long time.

I used to be a huge fan of trance / goa psy-trance, but for a year or two, I moved to EBM / gothic / cyber / industrial. Generally, I don't listen to anything shorter than 30 minutes (beside sporadic evening when I go back to classics on youtube).

I'm finding myself listening to more and more dubstep, especially as workout music. It gradually been edging out Motorhead, which was my go-to for a long time.

I hear some say that Skrillex isn't dubstep. I'm a noob to the scene, so I can't argue one way or the other. Whatever it is, though, I like it.

Also really digging these guys. This song seems appropriate for this forum.

The craziest video you will ever see:

Possibly only equaled by their other well-known song:

Both of these are great work-out songs.
