There's nothing that says a word can't have 2 different meanings, but the term "electro" has basically been hijacked. There was - and still is - a specific genre of music called "electro" that is completely different to - and pre-dates - most of the music being discussed in here which is "electro house". It's the equivalent of if there was a type of music called "reggae house" and people dropped the "house" part and just started calling it "reggae". Obviously, people that were into reggae would start saying "WTF??".
This is electro: -
Personally, as a huge fan of electro for 30 years, I think it's important to distinguish between electro and electro house, even if I'm fighting a losing battle on that front.
Us true electro heads have given up on this forum. For real electro: check the Techno forum.
I've given up on this battle. Ignorance is bliss, I guess.
This. I have tried many a time to educate the people pushing the "dirteh electro haus" as just "electro", and in the electro track of the day or whatever its just rammed full of this kind of music, I personally hate it and would never listen to it. The people in the techno forum tend to have more of a respect for the history of music and know the distinction between "electro" as it is called now, and what it actually is.
Roger, message received.
Talking about Kraftwerk and Afrika Bambaattaa stuff made off 808s and 909s (more or less)?? For once my MUS-15 Popular Music - Electronica class paid off!!
EDIT: so do we have to start an Electro House thread now??
