What’s In A Name?

At one time there used to be an endless need to categorize electronic music into genre’s, something basically invented by journalists as a reference point to make their jobs easier. Obviously there’s an argument for such categorization in order to point a would be listener in the right direction, but in recent times this pigeon-holing lumped everything with some bass and a vaguely non-house beat into the ‘post-dubstep’ category. Anyway, the latest H∆SHTAG$ episode from Red Bull Music Academy examines this ever-evolving area of music and looks at the role that the Internet has played in its development. Artists involved include Mount Kimbie, Sepalcure and Deadboy, alongside contributors from Soundcloud, Boiler Room, FACT and Resident Advisor.
