Ishkur's Guide to Elecronic Music

A friend of mine posted this on another forum I visit:

I've found lots of nice and ofcourse a couple of horrible samples. Worth taking a look at I guess :> It changed my view on Electronic Music.

(please ignore the intro -.-)

Ishkur's Guide
So far 2 of my DJ friends agree completely with what this dude has to say and apparently, so does Harvard University. Its been added to the mandatory list of ready material in one of their music courses.

I read the whole thing (and listened to the hundreds of samples) and I must say its amazing! He covers EVERYTHING from Techno to Hip Hop, Hardcore, Downtempo, Trance, even video game music ffs!!!! If its made using electronic equipment, its electronic music and its classified in this guide.

So culture up people! And stop saying Beyonce does Hip Hop and that what you are listening to is "electronica"... you're making an ass of yourself...

Enjoy!

Lining in Eurpoe for 8+ years like I did makes listening to electronica alot more pleasureable. I've notice here in the states we get alot of bottom feeder DJ's but lucky me I was able to check out a Paul VD set here in Phoenix AHHHHHH the joy.

Shows you didn't ready the guide! No such thing as "electronica" (according to Ishkur of course).

Speaking of which, I saw these guys last night:

Very good turntablists. Though I think it took 3 of them to equal one Kid Koala. Still good music no matter who is behind it.
