Damit nicht immer die unpassende Musik bei falschen Musikgenres gepostet wird, mache ich diesen Thread auf, der eher in die Techno-Richtung geht. Also nix für Minimal Wave und Dark Synth Pop etc.

Abstract generally describes a type of electronic music that doesn’t fit into any other category. It is sometimes also referred to as experimental electronic music.

Downtempo (or downbeat) music is associated with a variety of different Discogs genres, including electronic, jazz, rock, and some world music. It is generally 50 to 90 BPM, and sometimes there is not even any overt percussion in the music.
The Downtempo tag was originally intended to refer to 1990s–2000s chillout music that has a slow, rolling, hip-hop or dub-inspired groove, with sampled beats, and which can be broadly categorized as primarily jazzy, primarily dubby, or both. However, as downtempo is loosely defined, it has become an umbrella term for a broad selection of music with moody tones, chilling to passionate vocals, crossover indie vibes, and mellow beats.
Usage of the Downtempo tag for music from before c. 1989 or as a generic tempo descriptor is likely to be contentious. Users should also be aware of the wide variety of potentially better tags for more specific slow electronic styles.

Ambient music refers to a kind of music that envelops the listener without drawing attention to itself.
The Term was created in 1978 by Brian Eno's AMBIENT 1 "Music for Airports".
Ambient Music must be able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting. — Brian Eno (Music for Airports liner notes, September 1978).
As ambient music continues to have successive periods of popularity, the amount of material described in this way is huge. Users might wish to consider tags such as Dark Ambient, Drone, New Age, etc, instead of or on conjunction with Ambient, to bring greater clarity to entries.

IDM, or Intelligent Dance Music, is a style in electronic music emerging in the early 90's and characterized by unusual, weird, distorted sounds, and drum lines consisting of very short bleeps and glitches. Originally applied to musicians like Future Sound Of London ; Orbital ; Aphex Twin ; Black Dog & B12 the term is now extended to a multitude of artists who produce experimental electronic music while keeping the influence of their dance-floor origins, often produced on simple laptops using only sequencer software. The word "intelligent" was chosen because it had already appeared on Artificial Intelligence and because it connoted being something beyond just music for dancing, while still being open to interpretation. The term IDM is now used almost exclusively in its acronym form, as the actual meaning came to be interpreted as implying that other styles of dance music are not intelligent.
Electronic dance music (also known as EDM, dance music, club music, or simply dance) is a set of percussive electronic music genres produced primarily for environments centered in dance-based entertainment, such as nightclub settings.
