Electronic Music Genres

Following is a list of electronic (dance) music genres. I will randomly add to this page as I find new genres. I have split them up according to the 14 or so most general genres (as recommended by Wikipee). Developmental connections and dates of appearance are not yet shown (still fine-tuning). One day however, it will be my ‘ULTRA-HYPER-MEGA TREE OF ELECTRONIC MUSIC GOODNESS’!

IF ANYONE HAS ANY COMMENT, OPINION OR INFO THEY’D LIKE TO PASS ON, PLEASE DO SO BY POSTING A COMMENT. THANKS A BUNCH!
