Music is one of those experiences that is hard to quantify, but for some reason, we love it. We love to name and group different things with one another that we find similar. Moreover, when the thing evolves from what we have named it, a new name is given to the niche.
At times, they will simply gather a few established name and couple them to name a new niche. So basically, when someone asks what your favorite DJ plays, you give out a mind boggling name. All in all, humans love to label, thereby we are bound to do that.
Some of the very common dance music genre includes trance, house, deep house, techno, tech house, and more. But, majority of the people have either heard the names of these genres or have been listening to one of them for years. What we are about to reveal is something next level – and we are sure that you might have not heard of the existence of these dance music genres. Let’s move on!
- Disco Polo
Founded back in 1980s, Disco Polo is an unpopular and unheard dance music genre – unless you are a Polish. The genre is also known as sidewalk music and was derived from Europop.
This dance music genre is also known as hellektro or dark electro. Aggrotech is basically one of the derived form of electro-industrial with an incorporation of hard trance/hardstyle music. The primary target audience for this genre is cybergoth which is why Aggrotech can make a perfect soundtrack for movies related to goths, Satanists, or hackers.
The black metal of dance music is Splittercore. Being a dance music fan, you must have heard of gabber. People who dislike gabber for being too slow revert their attention towards Splittercore. Rest assured, you will listen to 700 BPM banging drums and noises of people yelling in the background. The only reason why this genre still exists is because internet forums need something for entertainment.
House is known as one of the most popular dance music genres. However, back in 1990s, house music came to a point where it was necessary to break it into fragments. This is how Hardbag came into existence – also known as the old version for old-skool house music. As Hardbag referred to a more commercial sound, it got instant fame and people became huge fans of the genre then.
