This section was going to be much harder to put together than I
thought because there are so many genres and sub-genres. But then
I came across Ishkur's
Guide to Electronic Music and voila! Although it doesn't
seem to work with the Safari browser. There was no way that I was
going to be as thorough as this guy. He's a little sarcastic and
funny in his descriptions, but the musical excerpts that he gives
are pretty much dead on. You will need Flash, however.
The site is truly amazing!! Check it out and you
will see what I mean by the sub-genres.
Another site I came across is The
Electronica Primer. The site is not as entertaining
as Ishkur's, but there is a lot of useful information.
These sites should keep you busy for a while so all I'm going to
do here is create a quick reference of the biggies and provide links
to the appropriate live365 stream for further listening.
I will also provide a very short audio sample of the genre that
is meant to serve only as a quick glance. All of these genres
are constantly evolving with new artists and new styles so please
don't be offended by my short audio summations. They are
only meant as a starting point for further listening.
I am not even going to attempt to describe each genre since mere
words are often not enough when describing music. Just Listen!!
These genres have literally hundreds of internet stations dedicated
to them. The live365 streams start with a 15 second
commercial before the music kicks in. A little annoying if you are
