Greatest Genres of Electronic Music

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Future Bass

I like the cute variant of Future bass.

Future Bass acts like WRLD are taking music to a whole new level. Truly lives up to its name

22 Goa Trance
23 Progressive

Really good. Nice for relaxing too.

Progressive house/Progressive trance
Artists Include: Sander van Doorn, DubVision, Dash Berlin, Avicii, Tiesto, Above & Beyond, Paul Oakenfold

24 Classic Electronic

For lack of a better term, this describes artists like Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Gershon Kingsley, and other artists from the period and before.

It's unfortunate that this has been forgotten. - PositronWildhawk

Classic is not kraftwerk or tangerine dreams it's artist like morton subotnick or delia derbyshire other classic genre like music concrete and la mat young
Lol you guys are so young

25 Moombahton

Why is this so low on the list? Its new, it has a nice beat to dance to and its reaching the top of the chart for a few years now. Some song you may have heard but probably didn't know where moombahtoon are major lazer - Lean on, major lazer - watch out for this, diplo - boy oh boy and jack u - jungle bae

By far best genre of music to dance to

26 Psychedelic Trance

Easily the best, most tripppy, put you in the 4th dimension music. If you haven't yet experienced psytrance you need to get yourself to a festival/party asap

27 Trap

You guys should try Jersey Club. Sounds good too.

This should be in top ten! For all those dubstep lovers, give trap a listen, the two genres are like cousins!

After Dubstep its Trap

Trap is club's best friend, all the drop is about 808 hit & melodical smash!

31 Industrial

I love Industrial music, It is so cool and has not been polluted by record labels trying to market it as much as most other music genres. Trance is my second favorite style of electronic music but it is not even close, Industrial runs away with this one.

One of the best electronic genre. It's the hard stuff of this genre with a lot of talented bands!

Awesome genre of electronic music with talented artists like Nine Inch Nails and Skinny Puppy.

32 Electronic Dance Music (EDM)

I like music that makes you get up and dance but also gives you a chance to fall down... - KDProductions

EBM is the coolest yet heaviest especially Harsh EBM or Aggrotech. Examples are Front Line Assembly, Front 242, Gendal and Tactical Sekt.

33 Dancecore / Hands Up
34 Electro Swing

Swing brought up to date, this varies from artists who stay close to the swing of the 30's and 40's, like Tape Five, to those who are more willing to experiment. Wonderfully danceable and full of joy.

Swing was great, Electro Swing ads a beat to it.

A very creative form of electronic music

Dope electronic music genre - waraypiso

35 French House
36 Chiptune / Video Game Music

Does electronic music get any better than this? I think not!

Always fun to listen to especially in a car, go 8 bit!

The beginning of EDM

She, shirobon, chiptek, sabrepulse, the list goes on. Chiptune is awesome.

37 Tropical House

Tropical House. The best for anything.

38 Rave

Isn't rave a type of festival thing, not a genre?

A rave is an event based around a genre of music. It isn't a genre itself.

39 Big Beat

Best describes artists like The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim and The Chemical Brothers. - JuniorBlitz99

Chemical 🎧 Brothers 👀 outstanding 👍 - CARTMAN2

40 Future Garage
