what electronic music is what

December 10, 2009 By: Brian Crawford Category: Links

a couple of posts ago I made an offhand reference to Ishkur’s Guide to Electronic Music. I suppose this is a “re-link” but it’s definitely worth pointing out; Ishkur’s Guide is a valiant attempt to make sense of how electronic music has evolved through the past decades, and what the “electronic music map” looks like today.

it should also be mentioned that Kenneth John Taylor, the lone gunman behind the site (and a Canadian I might add, as indicated by the site’s wiki page), is pretty opinionated about certain forms of electronic music (for example, check out what he has to say about Dutch Trance), but his colorful musings only serve to add to the charm of this site. I recommend finding a good chunk of free time and spending a couple of hours clicking your way through this very colorful history of electronic music.
