Welcome to the Electronic Music Forum


What belongs in this forum?

This forum is the place to make threads discussing electronic music of all kinds, including (but not limited to) DJs, Drum and Bass, Dance, EBM, and Industrial.

Please use your best judgement when deciding if your topic is appropriate for this forum.

To avoid accidentally making a repeated thread or a misplaced thread, first browse the forum to see what sorts of topics are there already and read the announcements and stickies in the main forum and sub forums, as they will contain additional useful information.

Please remember that this is above all a discussion forum. This means that you are here to have give and take and conversation about music.

As such, making a thread with the title of your favorite act in the title and a first post consisting of 'I love them! " is not a topic for discussion.

It is a spam thread and should be made in the chatterbox. If such threads are made in this forum, they will be relocated. So please take the time to put some effort into your thread and come up with a topic for discussion.

Please use the official threads.

Many bands are very very popular, and so people wish to make threads discussing them. The problem with this is that if everyone made their own thread for a band, discussion would be very spread out and the multiple topics on one subject would crowd out other less common topics.

As such, please use pre-existing threads to discuss bands in rather than making your own. You can find them by checking, for forum specific threads, the second post of this announcement, or the Music Forum Thread Directory.

If you find that your thread has been moved to the recycle bin, it will be because the material you wanted to discuss is already covered by a thread in the forum.

This forum does not move very quickly. As such, please do not bump your thread. Please be patient and wait for other users to see your thread and reply to it.

Thank you for reading, and enjoy the forum!
Rules & Guidelines for Posting in Electronic Music


Threads that are Appropriate for this forum - Threads about electronic music that are open for other users to comment, and discuss. Always check for an existing or "official" thread before posting a new topic.

  • Topics about an electronic remix you have created:
    Check out my new remix!
    Hey guys, have any feedback about this remix I created? Good? Bad? Suggestions?

  • Topics about an upcoming electronic music show (must promote discussion):
    Can't wait to see the upcoming Cruxshadows show!
    They're gonna be in my area soon. Has anyone else been to one of their shows? What did you think about it?

  • Polls and single question threads that encourage discussion:
    Which Electronic genre is your favorite, and WHY?
    "Why?" is the key part here. A thread consisting of "Industrial is totally my fave!11 lolol" is NOT a discussion thread, and will be considered spam.


    Threads NOT Appropriate for this forum - Threads that are not open for other users to comment, and discuss, regardless of whether they are about music.

    • Music Request Threads ARE SPAM. If you are looking for some new music to listen to, please take a look at the list of official threads in this sticky, or browse the forum:
      Recommend some music!
      I need some new electronic bands to listen to!

    • Threads that have some content to them, but do not have discussion:
      Daft Punk!!1
      Daft Punk ROCKS!

    • Repeat Threads (Threads that are already listed in this sticky):
      Dubstep!
      I love Dubstep! Discuss: Dubstep.

    • Threads that are about music, but not specifically about electronic music.
      What is your favorite music?
      I really love... country music!
