It's become really popular these days, and I've tried but I just can't like it

Anyone here who does appreciate it? Am I listening to the wrong electronic music? lol

Bit of a broad definition. I like some. I dislike others.

If there is any type of electronic music you will like then its Progressive House, melodic and often quite poppy with some great vocals. If you use spotify check out my playlist you might like it but don't like it because of the hype

Progressive Pop

There is also House (so many types), DnB, Trance, I'm sure there is something you can find to enjoy. Personally Trance is my favourite genre of music along side Prog House.

I have an encyclopaedic knowledge of electronic music; what is it you're looking for, exactly?

Autechre, Boards of Canada, The Flashbulb, Squarepusher and uZiq all come under the (awfully named) IDM subgenre.

They also tend to hold a steep barrier to entry and they're the type of thing you either love or don't see the point in.

Electronic music is a massively unspecific term to use, though - electronic covers anything from your general brostep tracks to classic house, electro swing, glitch hop and e everything in between.

If you enjoyed Netsky you'll probably enjoy many of the poppier drum n bass tracks and possibly liquid DnB.

DnB Chart favourites in the last year that you might like/recognize could be Rudimental, Nero and Chase & Status, although the latter two tend to have harsher-sounding songs that fit better to live gig settings.

I've listened to a little but it's not for me. Sounds too harsh and repetitive most of the time. I don't like repeating sounds or patterns in music, I like it to be totally different and varied from second to second.

Thanks so much, man! + repped

Here are my favourites from the above:

-That Shooting Stars one (the first one) was amazing
-Love Don't Stop too, remember it from when I was younger! And Rather Be was my favourite song of the summer :yep:
-Electronic Lover was pretty cool. I like songs with lyrics lol
-Midnight City is amazing (it's the theme song from MIC haha)

I don't know which sub-genres those fall under (I barely know anything about music), but any further recommendations would be awesome thanks

Thanks I don't exactly know, sorry... Just something that's considered electronic but that I still like? I liked some of the songs Ruthless Dutchman posted above (see my post) if that's any help

I don't like things that sound like a random collection of beats put together (like what Autechre etc. seem to put out). I like things like this:

Yeah, I've tried but I can only like a couple of their songs (at best :lol:)

Love Rudimental & Nero, Chase & Status not so much Any others you'd recommend? Thanks

Sweet, thanks

I like Take Over Control by Afrojack (posted a link in my reply to Profesh above - sorry, TSR is only allowing me to post one video per post for some reason! :eek:). Nero's "Promises" and "Me & You" are great too. And Madeon's "Finale" if that counts as electronic? Also, these ones from the ones Ruthless Dutchman posted:

-That Shooting Stars one (the first one) was amazing
-Love Don't Stop too, remember it from when I was younger! And Rather Be was my favourite song of the summer Image
-Electronic Lover was pretty cool. I like songs with lyrics lol
