>Electronic Listening Music general.
Who have you been listening to lately?
>I am smarter than you and i like to listen to electronic music and not dance to it.
No, biggest and objectively, the best electronic band of all time. They are the Gods of electronic music, met with critical acclaim and have inspired many of the electronics bands today, without them, they wouldn't exist. They are the best.
Sorry but no.
>Depeche Mode have had fifty songs in the UK Singles Chart and thirteen top 10 albums in the UK charts, two of which debuted at No. 1. Depeche Mode have sold over 100 million records worldwide.
>They have sold over 25 million records worldwide.
DM also have a huge fanbase and their tours consist mostly of stadium gigs.
>i am from bleep
>i say I go to clubs but really i just watch bioler room sets and circlejerk about the fabric lineup every weekend because Ii'm a bigger autist than any of you lads tbqh family wahey
I know. But Grimes is electropop which is part of electronic music. Her music features singing which is far from the most /bleep/ stuff.
I suggest you to actually try to get into her music. Worth it.
That is wrong. Electro/synthpop are actually ones of the least danceable genres part of ELM. Techno, house, trance, feature a prominent rhythm great for dancing, while electro/synthpop focus os singing. They're closer to the traditional songwriting.
>Grimes is still meant live entertainment
Her music is also for listening. Except most of Art Angels most of her music has a dreamy quality, less suitable for dancing. Just listen to Visions or Halfaxa.
Its not meant to be an electronic music general, its meant to be for IDM and similar intended home listening bleeps taken from the Warp Records compilation. The point is to be specific, why bother having a general for half of all music made this century.
No I didn't. Maybe a disclaimer is needed here on.
>these threads are for bleeps intended for home listening; IDM, lounge, downtempo, future jazz, psybient, ambient, progressive electronic and similar. They are NOT synthpop threads or electronic generals.
Last time I bother making this thread then.
Yeah. The synths are more prominent because she's a synthpop artists. That's still pop overall.
She's not completely irrelevant, but I wouldn't be posting Depeche Mode or Strawberry Switchblade itt either.
He meant probably that DM doesn't fit what he intended with /ELM/. This is a very subjective thing: for him DM may be music for dancing, but for many (like me) it's music for listening.
>post /idm/ general and it gets filled with autistic /bleep/ shitposters
>post /elm/ general and it gets filled with people who don't recognize the (incredibly vague) terminology
liking this music and using this board is suffering
maybe next time try naming it /bloop/
