Well I'm curious.
I think electronic music probably has more subgenres than any other out there, and seemingly for all the "depth" that EDM has to offer the masses, I think it all gets filtered out by the inner elitism/snobbish behaviour within the culture.
I understand there are different flavors to almost anything out there. Hip Hop is also broken down, Rap, West coast, east coast, gangsta, whatever. It's still a pretty strong scene due to it's unity amongst the listeners (if not necesarily the artists) when it comes to defining "what do you listen to?"
I mean take rock for example, Static X sounds nothing like AC/DC but I bet you could agree they both are just "Rock" to the average listener.
But if you play a Trance anthem vs a House classic, people tend to break it down into a debate over what genre it belongs to, and worst of all, people who can't tell the difference between the 2 will label it as "Techno" which is a genre all to its own (an unpopular one at that)
SO I guess I'm asking, do you think overcategorizing the genre is saturating it and hurting the unity amongst the listeners?
