    Style Name: EM

    Alternative Names: Berlin School, Sequencer, Electronic Music, Synthesizer Music

    Genres: Electronic

    Description: Although many different types of EM exist today, much of it is inspired by genre pioneers such as Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, Jean-Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk and Klaus Schulze. The music is typically layered instrumental electronic pieces with or without addition of samples and/or other instruments, most commonly electric guitar. Vocals are rarely present and typically restrained to a minimum of samples. Live improvisations are an important part of the scene and artists regularly collaborate in this manner. Artists and listeneres are also commonly highly technology-focused and obsess about vintage analogue synthesizers. The scene primarily exists in continental Europe and the UK, with its strongest bastions in Germany, the Netherlands and the UK, though it has also found its way to the United States. EM is also on the rise in eastern Europe.

    Examples - Labels:
    AmbientLive (UK)
    Groove Unlimited (Netherlands)
    Cue Records (Germany) (Germany)
    Ricochet Dream (US)
    SynGate Records (Germany)
    Spheric Music (Germany)
    Neu Harmony (UK)
    Generator.pl (Poland)
    Manikin (Germany)

    Examples - Artists:
    Klaus Schulze (Germany)
    Ron Boots (Netherlands)
    Mario Schönwälder (Germany)
    Redshift (2) (UK)
    Indra (5) (Romania)
    Ian Boddy (UK)
    Frank Klare (Germany)

    Associated Styles: Ambient, Prog Rock, New Age, Space Rock, Free Improvisation

    External citations:
    EM Portal - The biggest online community for artists and listeners of EM.
    Synth Music Direct - Well known label and distributor, see their beginner's section for a discussion of the musical components that make up EM.
    Encyclopedia of Electronic Music - Lists artists and their works. It also touches on other related styles but is primarily aimed at traditional EM.

    Notes: EM is actually an incredibly dull name that is short for electronic music, but it is the biggest catch-all in the field. One could argue that EM is itself a genre consisting of several styles but for Discogs use a style would seem more prudent. The style is much overdue, most works here are catalogued as "ambient" or combinations of "ambient, electro" or "ambient, electro, downtempo". There are some exotic suggestions involving power electronics too... :)

    style: EURO (Euro-Pop? Euro-Dance?)

    alternative names: eurodance, can-dance, italo / italo-dance, euro-house, euro-nrg, dancefloor, dance, etc.

    genre: Electronic, Pop

    description: popular in the early to mid 90's, euro featured "a "kick" bassdrum with some variations on a 4/4 time signature. While the percussion is always done by synthesizers, it is a sound more typical of dance music and not the "beat box" sound typical of rap music. The tempo is typically around 135 beats per minute, but may vary from 110 to 150 BPM. Most Eurodance is also very melody-driven, there is often a noticeable use of rapid synthesizer arpeggios.The synthesizer often has a piano or barrel organ but sometimes mimics other instruments, such as calliope (e.g., "Touch the Sky" by Cartouche). There is often a short, repetitive riff, while other times there is a whole tour de force of synthesizers (e.g., Close To You by Fun Factory). Some songs have a second riff cycling in between verses." [wikipedia]

    Synth Riffs had a stabbing quality, which helped influence the late 90's/early 2000's "ibiza-poomph" sound such as alice deejay or the venga boys (who represented the morphed sound of euro, when it became eur-trance/euro-house proper, and began sounding vastly different from the hits of it's peak era)

    "Eurodance is often very positive and upbeat; the lyrics often involve issues of love and peace, dancing and partying, or expressing and overcoming difficult emotions. The early-mid 1990s Eurodance vocals were frequently done by a solo vocalist or a mixed rapper-vocalist duet." [wikipedia]

    A most notable example would be 2 Unlimited, the popular belgian euro dance band, born from the early 90's warehouse rave scene and uk rave sound, they helped define the then emerging euro sound - highly synthesized, techno influenced, but pop structured. the synth stabs were present in even their earliest songs and were highly different from other contemporary techno actas (ie; 808 state's cubik is vastly different in it's synth riff from the method in which 2 unlimited used its synths). 2 unlimited also birthed a thousand and one copycats throughout europe and the uk, including bands like The Free, Clock, DJ Company, Darkness, etc. basically any dance act that featured a girl doing chorus vocals and a guy doing rap verses.
    an important thing to note is that to hip-hop heads the rapping that is done on euro tracks is very simplistic and a bit of a joke.

    here are a few defining euro trakcs, showing how the sound evolved and was identified throughout the years;

    early:

    Technotronic Featuring Ya Kid K - Move This
    2 Brothers On The 4th Floor - Can't Help Myself
    Daisy Dee - Crazy
    Dr. Alban - It's My Life
    Klaas Meets Haddaway - What Is Love 2K9
    2 Unlimited - No Limit
    D.J. BoBo* - Somebody Dance With Me

    mid-era:

    ICE MC - Take Away The Colour ('95 Reconstruction)
    Mo-Do - Super Gut
    Fun Factory - Close To You
    Daisy Dee - Headbone Connected (Try Me)
    Alter Ego (6) Featuring Daisy Dee - Dance (If You Can Not)
    Sonic Surfers - Don't Give It Up
    J.K. - You & I
    Maxx - No More (I Can't Stand It)
    Real McCoy - Another Night

    peak hour:

    Whigfield - Another Day
    Playahitty - The Summer Is Magic
    DJ Company - Fly Away
    Intonation (2) Featuring Joee* - Feel It In The Air
    The Free - Dance The Night Away
    Carol Medina - Tell Me You Love Me
    Clock - Everybody
    Taboo (5) - I Dream Of You Tonight (Bab Ba Ba Bab)
    Emjay - In Your Arms
    Alexia - Summer Is Crazy
    Clubhouse* - Nowhere Land (The Album)
    Mondano - Feelin' Good
    Aqua - Roses Are Red

    the abrupt end:

    Eiffel 65 - Blue (Da Ba Dee)
    Aqua - Barbie Girl
    Vengaboys - Up & Down
    Alice Deejay - Better Off Alone

    from this point on euro-house took a more concrete form - more uk/italo house oriented, less dance style, ie; Gigi D'Agostino - Bla Bla Bla.

    euro-trance also took over the genre, ie; Alice Deejay - Back In My Life, but for many it was too far a departure from the original euro sound, thus alienating the fan base and splitting fans into two, those who adore the first era, and those who followed euro into the new millenium.
    most euro following 1997 barely resembled its roots, and most acts recognized this fact and called it a day.

    other styles euro is associated with include pop, as some acts like aqua or dj bobo definately skirted the line between euro-dance and dance-pop.

    beside early uk rave/techno being an influence, italian piano house influenced the italo-euro scene, as piano riffs were quiet popular in tracks by alexia and club-house, as well as in techno/house/euro/dance crossover tracks like moby's "everytime you touch me (beatmasters remix)"
    hard house and other harder european dance sounds, such as scooter's "hyper hyper" or "friends" as well as tokyo ghetto pussy's "everybody on the floor" are very euro-dance based.

    citations:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurodance
    http://www.eurokdj.com/faqs.php
    http://eurodancehits.com/index.html

    note: while many of the releases used as examples above have "euro-house" as the style, this is not the most appropriate definition of the sounds contained on the releases, and is only used as it is currently the closest style to euro-dance.
    many have requested this style for these such reasons, and would employ euro-dance over euro-house in such cases. once added to styles, you can bet most users will change the existing style to the more appropriate euro-dance.

    PabloPlato - can we use Euro-pop instead of Euro-dance?


    i dont think euro-pop is the best fit for this style of music. i dont think anyone has ever used such a term for it, maybe for the stuff aqua did, but it barely seems fitting.

    i would consider euro-pop to be things like early backstreet boys (Backstreet Boys - Get Down (You're The One For Me), Backstreet Boys - We've Got It Goin' On), Londonbeat - I've Been Thinking About You or Take That - It Only Takes A Minute - songs of a style vastly different from something like Darkness - In My Dreams

    i'm curious, why would you suggest euro-pop over euro-dance?

    Style Name: Bouncy Techno

    Alternative Names: Tartan Techno, Funcore

    Genres: Electronic

    Description: A friendly bouncier version of hardcore, faster than techno and house but lighter than gabber with a more melodious sound. Distinctive by it's fun and bouncy aspect. Sometimes referred to as Tartan Techno due to it's Scottish origins/popularity. Typically 145-180bpm 4/4 beat, with staccatto riffs and off beat stabs.
    Scottish producer Scott Brown is acknowledged as one of the main creators of this style is also widely credited with popularising the sound. The main spell of popularity was from it's roots in 1992 to around 1996.

    Examples - Labels:
    Evolution Records (UK)
    Shoop! (UK)
    Clubscene Records (UK)
    Babyboom Records (Netherlands)
    Dwarf Records (Netherlands)
    Pengo Records (Netherlands)

    Associated Styles: Hardcore, Gabber, Happy Hardcore

    External citations:
    Wikipedia article
    "The Scottish have always been lovers of 'big choons'. SCOTT BROWN & his many labels caught onto this and produced some huge bouncy techno anthems, based on the gabba sound of hard kicks & hoovers. This sound made its way back to Rotterdam"
    Smurf interview

    Notes: Scotland influenced by the different aspects of hardcore and gabber from the Netherlands and other countries imposed their own flavour on it which then in turn got adopted by The Netherlands and other countries.

    Style: Scouse House

    Alternative names: Donk/Bouncy House/Bounce/NRG

    Genre: Electronic

    Description: Been around in some form for a good ten years or so. Basically a progression of big northern ravey piano house like Bizarre Inc, Dream Frequency through things like 2 Funky 2 - Brothers and Sisters.

    130-140 bpm. Most recognisible element is the hollow-sounding 'donk' off-beat bass sound. Elements of trance and hard house also. Tends to have a lot of samples, especially well-known samples. Lots of 'cheeky' bootlegs of pop/rnb/dance tunes. Started off being played in clubs in liverpool (obviously) though the sound was made more widely famous by clubs such as Wigan Pier (who released mainstream compilations) and then by the infamous Blackout Crew. Some dutch and german artists such as Klubbheads also make similar-sounding stuff, but dont neccessarily refer to it as scouse or donk

    Examples (labels):
    D'N'A' (Holland)
    All Around The World (tends to have scouse/donk remixes of most tunes)
    Blue Records
    Youth Club
    Bigfish Audio

    Examples (artists):
    Alex K
    Nitra-M
    Lee S
    Blackout Crew
    The Rezidents
    Klubbheads

    Associated styles: Hard House, Euro House

    Notes: Most scouse/donk releases are listed in discogs as one or more of: hard house, techno, euro-house and mistakenly hi-NRG (because of the use of the term NRG many submitters pick the nearest match)

    The term 'donk' started to appear around 2003-2004 as witnessed here:

    1 vote for scouse house, this is a term that has been floating in the ether for a while now.

    -vote for bouncy techno. i don't see how hardcore / gabber / happy hardcore wouldn't suffice. this seems more like a regional term.
    another associated genre that you may want to make note is NRG, or NuNRG - some of the stuff you mentioned felt similar to the NuNRG stuff from the mid 90's (see tony de vit)

    what on earth are you on about ?

    I don't see how that's any different from scouse ? what about italodance? uk garage? that's like saying no to techno coz it's from detroit!

    look tizers from ireland, scott brown from scotland, nightraver from holland
    and the labels aren't just scottish either.

    gabber is hard as nails and happy hardcore is generally breakbeat with chipmunked vocals and if you wanna get picky both of those fall under the 'hardcore' umbrella too.

    btw just wanna say i agree with you about Eurodance, i can't believe that's not in the styles already
  • PabloPlato over 11 years ago

    well, my concern over it being a regional term was as i have not heard the term "bouncy techno" from anyone else i have ever known to play music from those artists/labels you mentioned. every dj or promoter i ever knew into the hardcore scene would term such music in their collection as either happy hardcore, hardcore, or gabber.

    i wonder, do they call it bouncy techno outside of the scottish scene? do they use that term in the netherlands? (everything i have heard or own on baby boom i would consider gabber/hardcore). its definately a style within the hardcore/hard dance spectrum of styles, but i feel the term is a touch on the micro/regional side.

    PabloPlato
    i wonder, do they call it bouncy techno outside of the scottish scene?


    This is an important point. If a style of music is called one thing in one place but one or more different things everywhere else, I think only the most widely-known style name should be used.

    See also: hands-up - a style name used almost exclusively in germany for certain euro-trance/euro-house records. While the music is popular outside of germany and it might actually be a style in terms of elements used and track composition, the style name is virtually unheard of everywhere else.

    I mean, we have obscure styles in discogs, but the few fans this style has dotted around the globe all know it as the same thing.

    Thanks for the EM writeup grantcorp. I am not convinced this is a wide enough used term for a particular musical style - I'd like to see more citations for this being used as a musical style rather than a catch-all term.

    Well, that is maybe because EM is not really a distinct style but more of a subgenre. The name is referred to heavily by people active in the scene. I guess you could compare it to "house" which covers deep house, garage house, progressive house and what not, or "metal" which covers speed metal, black metal, doom metal and so on. It would in fact be good to write up a style at least for Berlin-School, and maybe for Sequencer (we'll need to borrow the jazz style "free improvisation" too), but it will leave a lot of releases without a suitable pigeonhole and they'll be dumped into "Berlin-School" simply because there is nothing better to choose from. We already have this problem which is why a lot of things are labelled ambient (when it is not), electro (when it is not), new age (when it is not), power electronics (when it is not) etc.

    To give some more quotes then:

    LABELS

    Groove Unlimited: "We're crazy about all kinds of Electronic Music. Hey, we even compose it ourselves!" (Note: no they're not, you won't find much in the vein of techno, house, disco etc. in their stock or discography) Linky

    Ricochet Dream: "Electronic Music and Beyond..." (Again, look in their inventory and you'll see music from a very narrow and specialized field) Linky

    Spheric Music: Das Label für Elektronische Musik (yeah it's German but you get the gist of it, again you won't find house, techno or whatever here) Linky

    Synth Music Direct: "We are fanatical about Electronic Music ... We set up in business almost ten years ago but were buying EM many years before this" Linky

    Ron Boots: "RON BOOTS is part of the so-called third generation of electronic musicians. The first generation, in the early 1970's, consisted of the EM pioneers and the second generation emerged at the end of the 1970's/early 1980's which included their descendants." Linky

    Syndromeda: "In the mid-seventies he also discovered E.M. His first acquaintance was " Ricochet " of Tangerine Dream. He soon learned to know the music of Klaus Schulze, Jean-Michel Jarre, Vangelis, etc. In 1979 he built himself a modulair synth, a Formant, and also bought a simple monophonic preset-synth a Roland SH-2000." Linky

    Klaus Schulze: "1971 - Start as Electronic Music soloist"Linky

    Bernd Kistenmacher: "Composer, arranger, producer of electronic music since 1980" Linky

    AirSculpture: "...a UK based electronic music group. Its members ... established it in the mid-1990s as a reaction to a music scene that no longer reflected their tastes. The energy and edge of '70s EM had become diluted into a melange of clinical digital sounds played over safe pre-recorded backing." Linky

    The Omega Syndicate: "...create Progressive, Improvised Electronic music." Linky

    Create (2): "Using a variety of hardware and software synthesizers his music reflects the Berlin School sound he has loved with a passion for many years. As well as playing electronic music..." (also note the URL-name) Linky

    Ian Boddy: "...his first CD release, Odyssey, came out on the EM label Surreal to Real. ... Furthermore he released three collaborative CD releases with some of Europes finest exponents of EM, namely Andy Pickford, Ron Boots and Mark Shreeve." Linky

    Wavestar: "...their first cassette release under their name ‘Wavestar’. That album, ‘Mind Journey’(1984) became a huge success; a copy was to find its way to the hands of Denis and Jeanette Emsley, two of the UK’s main EM supporters, who ran the cassette-based magazine ‘Inkeys’. ... In 1991 the second JD release was ‘Aquarelle’ which was to secure his place in the forefront of the world EM scene." Linky

    Style Name: Scottish Techno

    Alternative Names: Scottish Rave, Scottish Piano


    Ive never heard those terms used. Not in the context of naming the style anyway.

    When it says:
    "Marc Smith ... the god of the Scottish techno scene"

    It means of the techno scene, in scotland. Which is incorrect anyway IMO, but besides the point.

    Some of them should have a style name ("Rave" maybe?), but more or less making one up to group them together isnt the way to go.

    djpileup - inventer of scottish techno ten years after it first appeared.

    The reason i put forward these styles is that they were/are known as techno. bouncy being the faster hardcore version and scottish being the slower commercial version.
    tartan usually refers to the bouncy variety however it may have been used for both.
    i think you can at least agree they both bear no resemblence to the original forms such as detroit techno.
    In any case, I feel better for suggesting them.

    i vote for adding Euro Dance, Tech Trance and Scouse House.

    From http://www.discogs.com/help/fo...topic/206482#2568404 :

    style: EURO (Euro-Pop? Euro-Dance?)



    Eurodance would be better (a lot of compilation are called "Eurodance" ecc ecc...).

    Piano House? (or Italo/Italian house, italian an uk piano house music from early 90)

    Italodance started since Gigi d'agostino - bla bla bla (or few months before), as i've stated and write for 'n' times with evidence (search it on the forum).

    Schranz (i don't know if it's already on DB)

    Mediterranean Progressive... written also many times

    and of course Electro House (so much releases lately).

    PS: Everyone don't take what wikipedia said as gold, there are too much imperfections and it's not really good.
    I believe here there are surely more users more trusted than wikipedia.

    PS2: It's better to do an update on DB to the field Euro House -> Eurodance.
    The scale it's about 1 Euro House :1000(0) Eurodance

    Thats because you werent into those sorts of music. Just because you havent heard of them doesnt make them irrelevant. Its the fact that the style name is widely used with a given music scene.

    I am (or have been) into that sort of music and I know hardly anyone used those terms to signify that style of music before or since. Thats the difference.

    djpileup
    i think you can at least agree they both bear no resemblence to the original forms such as detroit techno.


    That doesnt mean they cant be called techno. All styles evolve and change. Hardcore, trance, hard house, drum n bass dont sound like they did 10 years ago either but the style names still apply.

    djpileup
    The reason i put forward these styles is that they were/are known as techno. bouncy being the faster hardcore version and scottish being the slower commercial version.


    But you cant apply styles name to group stuff together out of convenience if the terms arent widely used. Bouncy techno I am on the fence about but any reference out there to 'scottish techno' has always been in the sense of where the music orginates from, not what it is stylistically.

    I have any number of gabber/speedcore-related styles I could add (mostly ending in '-core') that I am refraining from adding for the same reasons. I dont even feel comfortable submitting doomcore, but at least I can cite sources and so forth.

    Huh? Most Berlin School electronic music is sequencer driven for the bass line. Think Tangerine Dream from 1974 (Phaedra) through 1977 (Sorcerer), a lot of Klaus' Schulze's 70s and early '80s output, early Neuronium, Michael Hoenig, Edgar Froese solo work (post "Aqua"), early Mark Shreeve...

    I've tried to show how a community of artists, labels and fans relate to the term EM but it seems to fall on deaf ears here. ;)

    As of right now we really do need to shift this music out of the "ambient, electro" trap where it actually just only helps to render those styles less trustworthy too. One option could of course be to drop the style requirement on electronic releases, but it is a fair chance people will still continue to add those styles out of habit. Anyway, I've notified the people on the EM forum to see if they can perhaps come up with something more insightful.

    Actually I do get your point. I just think it's hard to call EM a style. Rather it's a subset of the genre that includes a number of related styles but excludes the dance music and some other styles. I think that is what nik was communicating. I do understand that artists and labels come up with some classifications like this that simply don't fit Discogs well.

    That was already tried to be implemented, but heavily opposed, as some may remember. At least a lot of 4/4-heads are eager to keep their Hardcore tagging "clean", while "Hardcore, Breakbeat" seems to be a commonly used combination for those early 90s UK breakbeats (only).
  • djpileup over 11 years ago

    okay i accept i was being daft about scottish techno is not an established name and more of a substyle (probably should have referred it as tartan techno). for these releases can just use 'techno.

    however if acid techno and scouse house/donk are to be added then i still maintain a case for bouncy techno. 3 of the labels mentioned are english.
    i believe the term IS known outside of scotland but tbh i think that's a non-issue.

    "Donk is the latest incarnation of bouncy techno"

  • Articuno over 11 years ago

    I was thinking earlier on how to separate psychedelic ambient and downtempo music (evolved from Goa Trance and PsyTrance) from normal ambient and downtempo. Currently they are both labeled the same on the database, but there's a big difference between how they sound.
  • grantcorp over 11 years ago

    On the topic of EM again (see above), I listened in with the folks at the EM forum and gave it some thought. The only consensus from there is that it is difficult to label it accurately. Some use the EM term in the fashion I do, others preferred to label each and every release freehand in exotic ways (Stone Age Sequencing anyone?), others were opposed to any sort of labelling at all and some shameless guy took the opportunity to plug his own music...

    One user had an interesting link to the ol' wikipedia, which currently groups "EM" and Berlin School in the same fashion I presented it, namely as a subgenre and style respectively, as seen here: Linky

    Based on this I can think of the following solutions:

    a) We add the style "EM" as suggested, since this term continues to be used frequently by a community to refer to a particular group of related musical performances and artists.

    b) We remove the style requirement on electronic submissions and catalogue EM either without specific style or with styles such as Berlin School, Free Improvisation, Ambient and New Age in the cases where those apply and let the other stuff sit without any style attached.

    c) We maintain the status quo and continue to stick our heads back in the sand labelling things haphazardly.

    Regardless of the above, Berlin School should of course be added as a style proper, I'll leave that in your capable hands caitlynmaire. :)

    so it's techno and minimal. Why would it not be minimal techno then?

    Many reasons; it pushes a 909 in your face for one, which "minimal techno" doesn't do. "Minimal" is gentler and generally more "sophisticated" (narrative, not tracky; shuffled, not straight; melodic, not klangy). Difficult to really describe the difference with words but compare old techno which is minimal (truly minimal) with newer "minimal" and it would become obvious imo. Any of the major online stores have "Minimal" as one of the primary styles to shop, but if you were to look up Portion Reform (or other minimalistic Tech like District 1, Richard Polson etc.) you'd find it in Techno, not Minimal.

    I also suggest breaking up Electronic. Not all Electronic is dance music. Some is more in the soul vein. Infact There should be more then one style of Disco.

    Disco:

    Disco Soul

    Boogie

    Disco Boogie

    Synth-Funk

    Nu-Disco

    Space Disco

    Electro-Disco

    Electro-Boogie

    Disco Rap

    Euro-disco

    Orchestral Disco

    Jazz Disco

    Italo-Disco

    so on.

    http://www.discomusic.com/101-more/22_0_7_0_C/

    "Euro-disco ( Cerrone and Giorgio Moroder of Donna Summer fame) which itself can be broken down into Hi-NRG (Lisa, Pamala Stanley and the late Patrick Cowley who had influenced such groups as The Farm, New Order and The Pet Shop Boys.) Synth/Industrial . . . (Kraftwerk,Telex,Landscape, New Order andYazoo). There's even something many call symphonic or conceptual-orchestral Disco (Alec R. Costandinos and Boris Midney) where the artists used an entire album side or two to build upon a theme as in movements in Romantic or Classical music. It was complete with strings and horns interwoven with synths. The arrangements were very lush and layered. As a matter of fact, Boris Midney was one of the first to use 48 track recording to compose these works. How about Disco with a Jazz tinge? Try Vincent Montana, Laurin Rinder, Roy Ayers, Herbie Hancock... Of course there's plain old Disco (Lime, Grace Jones, Saint Tropez, Michael Zager, La Flavour and just about anything on theSalsoul, TK or Prelude record labels). Oh, how about Disco with a Funk/R & B feel (Jimmy "Bo" Horne,Cameo,Parliament /Funkadelic,Trussel, Undisputed Truth and Peter Brown)"

    Perhaps we can break it down by Disco/Pop Dance, House, Break Beat, Hardcore etc.

    Just a suggestion.

    Here's a proposal for two styles that are IMO relevant and useful (Hard Techno & Schranz)

    Style Name : Hard Techno

    * Genres : Electronic

    * Alternate names : Hardtechno

    * Description : a generic term widely used to designate various styles based on regular techno but with a significant emphasis on the hardness of the sound. Hard Techno generally features prominent and more or less distorted 4/4 beats. Melodic themes, if any, are generally dark and played with syntetic sounds. Typical speed: 135/145 BPM.

    * Example releases:

    http://www.shoutcast.com/radio/Schranz

    Style Name : Schranz

    * Genre : Electronic

    * Description : Schranz is a highly recognizable and stereotyped style of Hard Techno. It can be roughly described as the harder edge of Hard Techno, sometimes approaching the border of Hardcore Techno. Schranz is a genre significantly focussed on beats; Schranz tracks often don't have any melody at all, and if there is any, it generally consists of a few different notes only. Typical Schranz beats are based on a loud, long and distorted 4/4 bassdrums, along with highly compressed beat elements. The high compression level and the bassdrum loudness often make that other beat elements can only be heard at each half-time between two consecutive bassdrums. Speed generally varies between 140 and 155 BPMs.

    * Notes
    Schranz is a German term, since this style emerged in Germany. This term isn't widely used outside of Germany, and this style is referred to as Hardtechno. However, as Hard Techno is by essence a more generic term which covers a wider range of styles, including Schranz as a style still would make sense to identify this style more precisely.

    I might add a few examples/citations later.
    Any discussion/improvement of these proposals is welcome.

    edit: removed Hardtek from alternate names of Hard Techno. Although the name is very close is doesn't designate the same style at all.

    Have you heard what it sounds like though?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHJQwKB-toQ


    And thats supposed to be significantly different from loads of other sorts of trance? Are you yanking my chain?

    But at the same time, I could post up various hardcore tracks that, while at about the same speed, are considered by some to be different styles.

    And that, imo, should be one of the criteria for adding new styles into discogs - that they are discernible to the untrained ear.

    Different style is what dubstep is to jungle, or trip hop is to garage, or speedcore is to ambient. Not one slight variation of DnB, or trance, or hardcore.

    Its frankly farcial that people come on here and suggests entirely new style for the list based on the fact this small group of records using 1 different element from that small group of records.

    Im not saying the 'untrained ear' thing should be the sole basis for adding styles, im putting forward the notion it should be a factor.

    Tanzen (dance) + Schreien (scream), coined (seemingly by accident, AFAIK) by Chris Liebing. Don't know if it's widely used outside Germany, but certainly used (and played).

    Youve made a pretty convinving case for the two styles (schranz especially I think should be seriously considered) but I dont think links back to discogs label profiles can help the case.

    Theoretically anyone could edit label/artist pages to say they release imaginary styles. I could, in theory, change 'hard techno' to 'hard banana' and ask for that style to be added :P

    Style Name: Acid Techno

    Genres: Electronic

    Description: Acid techno evolved in the midwestern United States and Europe in the early 1990s from the industrial music scene, and offered something completely different than the disco-influenced house music that was often heard at nightclubs. One of the first acid techno records ever recorded is Circuit Breaker: Experiments in Sound, produced by Richie Hawtin, on Probe Records, a sub-label of Plus-8 records. Some examples of other North American acid techno labels would include Communique, Drop Bass Network, Direct Drive, Analog Records USA, EXperimental, Cheshire Records, and very early Dance Mania. Acid Techno was popular throughout the early 1990s in the London squat party scene. Many DJs mixed Acid Techno and later producers such as Divine Soma Experiment started to experiment with more complex arrangements and techniques combining freestyle breakbeats and psychedelic (acid) techno.

    In Europe, acid techno was very popular throughout the 1990s. Most notably, Holland's Djax-Up-Beats was a very successful international record label releasing well known American producers alongside European producers such as Acid Junkies, Cologne. Germany had one of the most famous acid techno scenes in the mid 1990s, featuring a collective of artists who recorded and performed together such as Mike Ink, Walker, and Jammin Unit, on labels like Force Inc and DJ.Ungle Fever.

    The term "Acid" music derives from the record "Acid Tracks" by group Phuture (Trax Records, Chicago, 1987).

    In London, acid techno is considered a less repetitive sound than many other forms of techno (early influences included the German acid trance scene) and an irreverent, often-political attitude seen in the titles and samples used in many of its tracks; many of that scene's originators had originally been part of the punk scene. More recently in the UK, acid techno has developed away from a predominantly 303-based sound into a broader sub-genre of techno that still retains its dancefloor-friendly ethos, and 'London' sound. Labels such as Infected, Hydraulix, Cluster, 4x4, RAW and Powertools reflect this newer sound.

    Acid techno continues to be mainly a fairly underground form of music

    Examples - Labels:
    Stay Up Forever Collective
    Smitten
    Routemaster
    Boscaland
    Choci's Chewns
    VCF

    Style Name: Bouncy Techno

    Alternative Names: Tartan Techno,


    Please... NO 'Bouncy' is thee single most vague word in Scotland when people are referring to the music they like. I understand exactly what style you are referring to pileup as I know your tastes but after working in record stores and have some one try to explain a track they are searching for I can assure you every one thinks their music is 'bouncy'.

    Adding Tartan to this is only adding to embarrassment to the fact that we (in saying that I mean people like Scott Brown) were responsible for bastardising and raping any GOOD hardcore record made elsewhere... cough.. splutter.... Engurland.... *spits on floor*

    PS. I don't mean these things as an assault on your music preference djpileup, neither to I want to start a row about it. I'm proud to be Scottish but unlike yourself the period of 'music' you are referring to is nostalgic to some and turns the stomach of others. 50% of Scots in the age bracket of 25-35 will have an idea what you mean by 'Bouncy' but to have it as style on Discogs wouldn't be carrying correct info to international users IMO. I don't feel that or the word Tartan being used to pigeon hole the records played at Hanger 13 is warranted.

    Agreed. Early FUSE and DJAX records carrying the same stye as a Stay Up Forever is misleading. I think 'Hard Techno' is best suited.

    in the UK, acid techno has developed away from a predominantly 303-based sound into a broader sub-genre of techno


    Drop the 'acid'... add 'hard'?
  • consort over 11 years ago

    One could perhaps argue that "acid" is just an instrument and any techno track with a 303 line is acid techno, but there are actually other cliché elements involved, including but not limited to political themes (perhaps not entirely independent of that early track which was banned in UK for the "Aciiiiiid" sample - sorry, forget which track it was) - and I find TechElec's post convincing.

    Very true, the music came from and was a big part of the free party / squat scene. There is a lot of political references scattered across the scene, from label designs (Prolekult) to track names and the runout etchings of the vinyl releases.

    This was the record that led to Radio 1 and Top Of The Pops omitting all records and artists using the word acid. Despite the fact that acid wasnt a drugs reference and the D-Mob record doesnt have any 303 in it :S
  • PabloPlato over 11 years ago

    yes to TechElec's "Acid Techno" suggestion.

    dave the durmmer and the liberators idea of acid, to me, has always been about pummeling the audience with hard, acrid beats and metallic sounds, where as 303-based acid, techno or acid, house has always been based on the warmer orgasmic squelches and rhythms formed from a roland 303, and are generally a lower bpm than the latter acid techno.

    maybe to further distinguish the two, TechElec's suggestion could be merged with consorts, to make Hard Acid Techno.
  • TechElec over 11 years ago


    PabloPlato
    Hard Acid Techno.


    Don't be ridiculous. Most Acid Techno isn't that hard at all, the beats are mostly quite tinny actually with a lot of percusssion.

    The 2 things are seperate entities.

    Style Name: Berlin School
    Alternative names:
    Genre: Electronic
    Description:
    An outgrowth of Krautrock which began with Berlin-based musicians and spread first through Europe and then around the world, Berlin School electronic music is characterized by strong sequencer bass lines (or later synthesizer rhythms which sounded like analog sequencers) over which electronic melodies or sounds are laid. It is often reminiscent of minimalist composition in that the music can seem quite repetitive if concentrating on the bass line. Ambient or avant-garde sketches often frame or are embedded between sequencer driven sections in long Berlin School pieces.

    Sample Releases on Discogs:
    Original Berlin School artists
    Tangerine Dream - Rubycon
    Klaus Schulze - Mirage
    Michael Hoenig - Departure From The Northern Wasteland

    Style : Electro House

    Genre: Electronic

    Definition (from en.wikipedia.org) : Electro house is a fusion genre of house music and electroclash (with influences from a notable variety of other genres of electronic music) that came into prominence in the 2000 decade. Stylistically, it combines the minimal-processed four to the floor beats commonly found in house music with harmonically rich analogue or digital basslines, abrasive high-pitched leads and the occasional vocal tone, piano or string riff. The tempo of electro house ranges approximately from 120 to 135 bpm.

    Example artists:

    highly needed genre since as it is now, tags Electro and House have to be combined to describe this genre on Discogs. It causes confusion with the original meaning of Electro, which shares absolutely no common point with Electro House (stated in the wikipedia link above, as well as in the Discogs wiki Style Guide: http://wiki.discogs.com/index.php/Style_Guide-Genre-Electronic#Electro

    Style Name : Schranz

    * Genre : Electronic

    * Description : Schranz is a highly recognizable and stereotyped style of Hard Techno. It can be roughly described as the harder edge of Hard Techno, sometimes approaching the border of Hardcore Techno. Schranz is a genre significantly focussed on beats; Schranz tracks often don't have any melody at all, and if there is any, it generally consists of a few different notes only. Typical Schranz beats are based on a loud, long and distorted 4/4 bassdrums, along with highly compressed beat elements. The high compression level and the bassdrum loudness often make that other beat elements can only be heard at each half-time between two consecutive bassdrums. Speed generally varies between 140 and 155 BPMs.

    Style Name: Boogie

    Alternative Names: Disco Funk, Disco Boogie, Electro-Boogie, Electro-Funk, Modern Soul, Garage

    Description: Post Disco club music that departed from the frantic 4x4 pace of 70s disco. It opted more for disco related funked up baselines and 2x4 beats that would dominate the sound of the 80s.

    "Boogie (or electro-funk, post-disco) is a electronic/funk-influenced variation of post-disco. Boogie tracks are usually mid-tempo."

    "The sub-genre really came into its own around 1985, when Kiss FM (named in tribute to the seminal New York dance station) took to the air and DJ’s like Gordon Mac, Norman Jay, DJ Tee (Tee Harris), Desi D, Tosca and, of course, Paul ‘Trouble’ Anderson began playing club tracks from earlier in the decade (along with other pirate radio DJ’s like Trevor St Francis on LWR and Lyndon T on JFM), describing them as ‘Boogie’. The word Disco had been out of vogue since the 70’s, with the music played on the black scene, pre-Kiss, usually coming under the blanket terms of Soul or Electro, but then a new movement of mainly black kids from South and East London began to refer to this post-Disco groove as ‘Boogie’. The sound was typified by Leroy Burgess, and the big labels included Prelude, West End and Sam, with club support coming from DJ’s such as Trevor Shakes, Dez Parkes, Cleveland Anderson, Henderson Yearwood, Fitzroy Da Buzz Boy and Derek Boland (aka Derek B)."
