Guy that arranged the music for the movie also created the soundtrack for the Tron:Uprising show. Enjoyed hearing elements from Legacy's score incorporated into the show.

I really don't know what a Daft Punk is but the soundtrack to Tron: Legacy was farking awesome and it can do a lot more of that.

I'm assuming no ladders are involved.

Mr_Fabulous: I'm not into EDM as a rule...but if Daft Punk plays Lollapalooza, I'm all over that shiat. People are still talking about their 2007 set.


greatest show i've ever seen.

LewDux: TheJoe03: Glitchwerks: I've seen some funny stuff on Fark before, but that takes the cake.

No genre is as fragmented as electronic music.

What about electric music genre?


Rock?

rickycal78: You obviously don't listen to metal. That's a genre that's fragmented as hell.


Not really, more of a hip hop guy (another fragmented as hell genre). I still think EDM takes the cake.

I loves me some DaftPunk, but I preferred the original Tron's soundtrack it's more ... Moog-y. I wish they'd used more of the original themes like Tron 2.0 (the video game) did.

Oh, don't start this again. You'll get Ishkur pissed off once more.

Don't hate Daft Punk, but French House has come farther than DP has been able reach. I personally liked their solo works prior to DP more. Thomas Bangalter's Roule work is exceptional. Le Knight Club & Crydamoure.. Awesome stuff. But you put those two together you get (now)commercial stuff. "Da Funk" was the beginning and end of great original sounding DP. As soon as their second single from Homework: "Around the World" came out, they became what they never should have - car ad music.

"Da Funk" music video: Still awesome..

Just like, my opinion man...

Last time it was about the rules on what to call the genre, but I don't think he'd disagree about how fragmented electronic music is. I think it's because it's a vague "genre" classification in the first place with so many sub genres. I would be interested in his opinion, I doubt it will be nearly as heated as last time.

I personally don't see what's so vague or fragmented about it.

Good luck with that.

Your point? Never heard of the electric music genre.

Because the only connection all the genres have with each other is that they are made with electronic instruments, so technically a genre like hip hop could even be considered EDM. That's why I think it's vague. As for fragmented, I think that because it's so global and regional as well as divided into more subgenres than you would see in other umbrella genres. Hip hop, for example, is based on a strict definition and no matter how many subgenres are made, it's still pretty linear. Oh, and I'm not knocking electronic music at all, it's probably my 2nd favorite genre at this point.

Skr: I was thinking that the headline was referring to a new Tron movie coming out this year. Anyways, I could dig another weird Anime tied in with this album.

First off, Ishkur was right that it's not "EDM." It's electronic music. And, yes, the majority of hip hop is considered to be electronic in terms of production.

"EDM" is another industry term like "electronica." Unlike Ishkur, I don't bite people's heads off for using it.

And as for fragmented because of region, that's been untrue for years now. For example, drum n bass used to be an entirely UK dominated sound, but now you have quality records coming from every country out there.

It's simply down to being defined by the types of rhythms and sounds used. There's still some terms like "Detroit techno" or "French house" being used, but that's about it.

in France, one cannot get french toast or french dressing. and, unfortunately, one cannot get to hear french house either, at least in Paris anyway.

To me that makes it even more fragmented. For example, there's a difference between UK dubstep as compared to American dubstep, which is fragmenting right now into Trap (in a sense). It's the same to me as hip hop being fragmented due to the different regions representing it. Californians have their own alternative rap style compared to Chicago or NYC, for example.

Leaving regional variations aside, my main reason for thinking electronic music is fragmented is basically due to the crazy amount of sub genres and the huge differences between not only the sound but the fanbases as well. My OP was in response because it seemed your favorite subgenre might be at odds with French House like Daft Punk. I know people like me (more into downtempo, rap influenced electronic music) would be at odds with traditional ravers who see that fanbase as against what "true" electronic music and culture is about. Just my opinions based on my own observations, I'm probably wrong. The rise of dubstep made this clear to me. I have a friend who is deep into the trance scene, and he constantly biatches and moans about dubstep and the fans.

/the internet only further fragments all music just because niche styles become more prevalent and available.

If all music made (mostly) by electronic instruments can be put under Electronic Music, it's only fair to put all music made by electric instruments under Electric Music and only then compare which one is more fragmented

I hate "R&B", it's just industry invented term for all black music

I think he always mentions that he's talking about Bro-step

The difference there is not between UK dubstep and American dubstep, but mainly between dubstep and brostep. Brostep was popularized by a UK artist, Rusko, and then a bunch of bandwagon jumpers tried to cash in on the sound. A lot of people point at American artists like Skrillex as being the ones to blame. They may or may not be right, I'm not going to get into that argument.

Trap is a style of hip hop, and once again a few people who think they can make some quick money are jumping in on it. It used to be that different styles would spend a few years underground before getting mainstream attention. In this day and age, anything new quickly gets pushed forward where it languishes and eventually dies because people stop innovating.

TheJoe03: Leaving regional variations aside, my main reason for thinking electronic music is fragmented is basically due to the crazy amount of sub genres and the huge differences between not only the sound but the fanbases as well.


That's a huge discussion, and like I said the last time, I'm not up for it any more.

TheJoe03: My OP was in response because it seemed your favorite subgenre might be at odds with French House like Daft Punk.


That's an incorrect assumption. Again, huge discussion and I'm not going in to it.

TheJoe03: I know people like me (more into downtempo, rap influenced electronic music) would be at odds with traditional ravers who see that fanbase as against what "true" electronic music and culture is about. Just my opinions based on my own observations, I'm probably wrong.


You are wrong. There's always been a ton of hip hop influenced electronic music. Most of the music I listen to is based on roots reggae dub. Tons of downtempo has come from pretty much every subgenre.

TheJoe03: The rise of dubstep made this clear to me. I have a friend who is deep into the trance scene, and he constantly biatches and moans about dubstep and the fans.


Can't say I blame him.

Anyway, Ishkur really did lay it all out for you in his last posts. You're never going to understand the music if you don't dive past the flotsam at the the top and find the good stuff under the surface.

He was quite right that a lot of people just want to have stuff handed to them, be assured that they are listening to what is in vogue, and they never want to get any deeper than that.

The reason there are so many different styles is that there is so much exploration going on within electronic music. Unless you actually explore it yourself, it's always going to seem confusing to you.

Just my opinion.

That's my point (the various styles and the vague nature of the genre allow for a lot of exploration of styles, which fragments the genre as a whole), I never said I was confused or only knew the "mainstream" stuff. Since you said you don't wish to go to deep into this, let's just respectfully agree to disagree (on the other points).
