A guide to electronic music

US Raver site Ishkur has put up a Guide to Electronic Music. The guide shows how the different styles of electronic music evolved, all the way from the late 70’s electro, disco and ambient to modern styles you’ve probably never heard about, like “psytekk”, “synthron”, and “illbient”(!), along with soundbites and commentaries.

The comments are definitely not objective, often bitingly sarcastic and many are very funny – here’s a few examples:

Goa would be the best genre ever, if it weren’t for the fucking hippies

It’s really hard to find a New Age composer these days that you wouldn’t wanna rather give a swift kick in the shins.

Even if you don’t have an interest in electronic music, go check out the guide, you might learn something, and maybe even learn to appreciate this beautiful music!
