DESCRIPTION

Electro is a genre directly influenced by the use of TR-808, Moog keytar synthesizers and funk sampling. Records in the genre typically feature drum machines and heavy electronic sounding deprived of vocals in general, although if present, they are delivered in a deadpan manner, often through an electronic distortion such as vocoding. This is the main distinction of electro from previously prominent late-1970s genres such as disco and boogie, in which electronic sound was only part of the instrumentation rather than basis of the whole song.

DESCRIPTION

Electropop (also called technopop) is a pop-orientated form of electronic music primarily focusing around the sounds of synthesizers. The genre has seen a revival of popularity and influence since the late 2000s. The term was used primarily during the 1980s to describe a form of synthpop characterized by an emphasized electronic sound — often described as cold and robotic — and by minimal arrangements. This was mainly due to the limitations of the analog synthesizers and recording techniques used at the time, but has since become a stylistic choice. Electropop laid the groundwork for a mass market in chart-oriented synthpop. Electropop songs are pop songs at heart, often with simple, catchy hooks and dance beats, but differing from those of electronic dance music genres which electropop helped to inspire — techno, house, electroclash, etc. — in that songwriting is emphasized over simple danceability.

DESCRIPTION

Electro swing is a musical genre fusing swing styles with modern, (often hip hop or house influenced) production techniques. Electro swing is mainly popular in Europe, and Electro swing artists incorporate influences from the Swing era such as Django Reinhardt's Gypsy Swing. Leading artists include Caravan Palace and Parov Stelar. Other artists, some new and some who were already involved with other styles like Downtempo, Lounge or House began to pick up on the sound and style. In 2009 the first compilation albums of the music began to appear 'defining' the genre. Most notably "Electro Swing" from Wagram in France and "White Mink : Black Cotton (Electro Swing versus Speakeasy Jazz)" from Freshly Squeezed Music in England which was described by the dance music magazine Mixmag as "Electro Swing's first landmark moment".
