Thank you for taking the time to write a response. It appears that we are not actually in disagreement, perhaps our differences are more about shading and emphasis. My only concern with not recognising the value of sub labels is that the use of a generic all inclusive term potentially obscures the contribution made to the music scene by individuals and communities who have previously had their musical achievements subsumed by a larger all encompassing narrative.
Exactly! I guess its two fold: in a way, its all electro, which should be taken into mind when some people want to be elitist towards others who make a different type of it. But, in the larger scheme of things, i really find the use of sub labels very important to do as you say, describe the specific styles that people do.
Some people argue against that, saying its "all music", thats it. And i get that, but nonetheless, people's hard work at making unique styles are lost and never recognized if we just use that all encompassing term.
I think we are starting to get somewhere with this.
