Arts Music Styles E Electronica
103
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. Some of the prominent electronica bands are Moby, The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim, Tricky, Massive Attack, The Future Sound of London, The Crystal Method, Orbital and Leftfield. 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.
