When someone starts calling something a new genre like 'glitch-hop' for example, or 'chill-step' when you could just say the artist plays two genres. Glitch and hip hop or chillout and dubstep.

You don't hear about artists called 'acid hip hop' because they call themselves acid house and hip hop.

I don't see the need to try to make all these obscure genres. It just seems like it's people trying to sound cool by making a new name cause other people haven't heard of it before. Lots of artists say they play multiple genres and fuse them together, without having to come up with a new name for it.

I'm not hating. I just think it's silly and kinda pointless cause nobody is going to remember all these new fusion genres cause people are just going to keep making them and it's going to be too much for anyone to remember.

Especially when there's not a huge difference in 'chill-step' and 'dubstep' except one sounds a little bit more chill. Hahaha...
