Electronica Styles Music

During the 70's and 80's, Kraftwerk and Brian Eno rose to prominence with some amazing electronic music experimentation. Gradually, the Jamaican DJ soundsystem culture and the underground clubs in London, Detroit and New York gave the DJ more prominence, with their samplers, turntables and effects processors. Electronica is a term used to describe all sampler, computer and turntable based music, except for Hip Hop. It has quicky fragmented into a number of smaller sub-genres, like Intelligent Dance Music, Trip Hop, Ambient, Jungle, Drum N Bass, Bigbeat etc. A point to be noted is that Electronica is a very vast term, and the bands mentioned above illustrate this very feature of electronica music.
