I like a LOT of electronic music, but it seems no matter where I go when looking through generes of electronic music to find artists/groups that are somewhat upbeat (and also not drum’n’bass), I always end up coming up with groups that use the c&c music factory technotronic dance-hall rhythm.
Does anyone know of any specific genres of upbeat electronic music that completely avoids that rhythm?
so you don’t like four-to-the-floor stuff, no straight 4/4 beats?
then just look out for the contrary, which’d be “broken beats”.
trip-hop, idm, breakbeat, elektro and alike come to mind as representatives of that genre.
but believe me, there definately are tracks using a straight 4/4 beat without sounding like c&c music factory…
to me, that’s what i’d call “elektro”.
“electronic music” is just a generic term for music, that has been written without the support of accoustic instruments.
that’s at least the way i define it - however, opinions might vary.
