    Dark Progressive House

    Making one more thread here today with a set/playlist I've been working on. This one for Dark Progressive House. "But once the late-’90s Gatecrasher-era of trance was ushered in by artists like Ferry Corsten, Tiësto, Paul Oakenfold, and Armin van Buuren, the genre as a whole aimed at creating...

    8th Note Prog

    So I made a new set/playlist for 8th Note Prog which was a term that Ishkur came up with. I'm really not sure how many people used that beside him. It goes into as much details as i could find. 8th Note Prog was pioneered by deadmau5 in his earliest key tracks, brought to commercial success by...

    Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music (old)

    There's some good info in there but as stated by y'all his tone, ego, and humor really don't do the site justice. It really detracts from being informational. But its pretty, there's some useful observations, and he notices some stuff that others don't. A mixed bag.

    Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music (old)

    Sadly he had a poor attitude to a lot of genres then and its even worse now. He makes a poor spokesman for Electronic music when he hates so much of it. He knows enough to learn from but screws up enough that you can't believe a lot of his conclusions. The worst part is he should never be seen...

    Dubstep Thread

    This video really does a good job of going through all the development quickly and well. Very well done. As shown it came out of UK Garage although D&B always had some impact on that as well. We re-did our older Dubstep Set from previous years and made it a bit better, it goes over the tracks...

    What was the reason for the decline of trance after 2005?

    Generally the biggest issues with some old genres as Trance and Techno is that they just don't change that much in the last decades, they don't continue to get subgenres and new names and attention. The late 00's had an increase in Vocal Trance diluting it, Armin van Buuren owning the genre at...

    Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music (old)

    Yeah I'm gonna really miss his old site. I believe I backed up a fair amount of it and screen capped it too but its full functional original style was rather amazing even if lo-fi by today's standards. I've got a fair amount of gripes with the new one (especially his Eurotrance parent which...
