The Contenders: Page 2

21 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

22 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

23 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

24 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!

26 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.

27 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.

28 Darkwave
29 Deep House

Underground Deep house is journey inducing. Simply the best for me.

30 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.

31 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.

Not widely known but very cool genre

32 French House
33 Hardcore

Hardcore is beautifully melodic and hard at the same time. It just fills you with energy and emotion.

It's fast and brutal... I love it... - sam117

Hardcore bitches, everyone love it.

Love hardcore <3 love the four to the floor super hard kick drum. Beautiful vocals make it even better, or go harder and bouncier with powerstomp

34 Tropical House

Tropical House. The best for anything.

35 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.

37 Future Garage
38 Electroclash
39 Alternative Dance
40 Eurodance

Oh euro dance is extinct only because the radio doesn't cover them if we make euro dance a little deeper this far be the best genre of all time I mean house and ambient is in top 10 because the are deeper and more aggressive euro dance is a fun dance and happy music

Eurodance is great. Brings a great sense of nostalgia, and also it's really bouncy and quite light, a nice change especially after I've listened to a lot of house, drum and bass, trap etc - Aquaturtle

Should be Nr.1 in my opinion...why Nr.40?
