Yeah, that's good stuff. I think part of the appeal of electronic music for me is that a lot of it is hard to nail down so far as a specific genre or category is concerned. It all falls nicely under the 'electronic' umbrella. The House music scene was much the same when it first really exploded. There were a lot of different sounds but everything was just House ..... then Techno, then Garage, then this, then that ..... fast forward a few years and the music press have gone genre crazy! Beyond that people now make music to fit a specific genre. So the creative boundaries are restricted ever more within a specific discipline. Go outside the boundaries & if people notice they'll slap you with another genre label (sub-genre!!). Crazy & I don't believe it's very good for the music at the end of the day.
