The electrocute mix : my first electro mix!

Here is my first electro mix that consists in a mixture of electroclash sometimes meshed with cosmic disco, detroit techno and quirky electro beats with some serious synth action. I am sometime quite fed up of people ranting that they’re listening to electro when it only refers to electronic music. What kind of electronic music, ambient, electronica, dubstep, breakbeat, house, trance, downtempo or electro? Electro is a genre of electronic music directly influenced by the use of TR-808 and Moog synthesizers. 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. Cosmic disco on the other hand is often associated with Italo disco and Prins Thomas, Lindstrom and now especially Tensnake which is featured heavily on this mix 🙂 I will try to put a direct download into Windows media player but please be patient these things are very much time consuming, this mix alone is close to 15 hours of work ! We, fans of electro and electronic music, aren’t we all geeks after all…And electrocuted ?

    What about the other general misconception people have about Electro when what they really mean is Synthpop, New Wave etc? Frustrates the crap out of me too.
