I feel like a pretentious asshole saying I like Intelligent dance music - especially when it's not dance music or necessarily intelligent

The only people who hate the name of the genre are insecure faggots who feel that the music they're listening to might be considered "unintelligent." Which never really is the case

"In a September 1997 interview, Aphex Twin commented on the 'Intelligent Dance Music' label:

I just think it's really funny to have terms like that. It's basically saying 'this is intelligent and everything else is stupid.' It's really nasty to everyone else's music. (laughs) It makes me laugh, things like that. I don't use names. I just say that I like something or I don't."

???

ProgressiveDM would probably a good one

>>54223438
not bad either as far as existing terms go

>>54223879
leftfield strikes me as far broader, and very different

>>54223934
no, repetitive stomping techno can have loops just as intricate
>>
>>54224025
Sounds like your talking about Death Metal. Also it's not very danceable most of the time.
I would say progressive electronic music. PEM. Also an easy to say acronym.

techno

anything that gets called IDM really belongs to a real genre anyway, like techno or glitch or downtempo or ambient, so just call it what it actually is

what's the RDJ album?
>>
>>54224236
Drill and bass

>>54224236
most of its breakbeat techno

>>54224170
yes but that exists already. Jean Michel Jarre etc

a lot of what's classified as dance music isn't very "dance-y". like dub techno. point is it's derived directly from dance music styles the way prog is derived from plain ol' rock.
although >>54224208 has a point as pdm arists can build from very different, distinct styles of dm
>>
sophisticated and complex dance music for intellectuals much like myself

not necessarily intelligent by nature but what i mentioned earlier - in contrast to the unoriginal club music that enables people to churn out the same tune for 20 years before moving onto the next big thing
