Website / Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music

Ishkur's Guide To Electronic Music is a guide by Kenneth John Taylor. Started in 2000, it has gone through several different incarnations, including a notable stay at Newgrounds, before ending up at Digitally Imported.

The guide begins with a brief overview of some of the equipment used in making music, and then turns into a massive web of genres and samples. One can lose hours just listening to everything. The genre descriptions themselves are extremely opinionated, and have a stated priority of entertainment over information. Also notable is the amount of hair-splitting involved, even as he criticizes promoters and artists for coming up with a plethora of genre names.

It's important to note again that Ishkur himself is highly opinionated to say the least, so it's best advised that one takes the aforementioned genre descriptions with a grain of salt.

Tropes common to the genre descriptions include:

  • Accentuate the Negative
  • Caustic Critic
  • Complaining About Music You Don't Like
  • Covered Up: Inverted, as all the examples of Epic House (listed above) are covers listed as "Stupid Dance Mix" versions of the original.
  • Darker and Edgier: Discussed.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: Funky House.
    • Apparently, Gabber House is cheesy.
  • Flanderization: It's noted that many, many subgenres are born by taking a successful artist or song, then focusing on and exaggerating one specific attribute of their sound.
  • Gratuitous English: Discussed in the Italo entry.
    [T]hey all sang in English, which is odd because English was universally a second language to them, as evidenced by the fact that the lyrics make no sense and the vocalists have thick accents of indeterminate origin.
  • Gushing About Music You Like
  • Hourglass Plot: Ishkur claims that the pioneers of electronic music were great songwriters and composers but rank novices with their equipment (to be fair, the equipment was so new that everyone was a novice). But somehow along the way, electronic music became dominated by people who understood their equipment forwards and backwards, but didn't know jack shit about writing songs.
  • Jerkass
  • Lighter and Softer: Discussed. Also one his berserk buttons.
  • National Stereotypes: According to Ishkur:
    • French House (at least Thomas Bangalter from Daft Punk) is "the only reason why the world does not sack France."
    • Britain is to blame for the dullness of certain genres, like Trip Hop.
    • American culture (at least, in American Hardcore) needs to show how "manly" it is all the time, but every time it does, it looks even more stupid.
    • No mention of Japan goes without reference to "giggling schoolgirls" and "robots that will try to take over the world".
  • Sarcasm Mode: "Rap music was invented by Blondie."
  • Schedule Slip: The current version, 2.5, is from 2005. 3.0 has been promised for a while, and has yet to materialize. He's still working on it, don't you worry...
    • Is the vaporware thing for real?
  • Widget Series: If something has any tangential connection to Japan, little girls with robots will be mentioned.
    • Ishkur also compares Japan to Toontown due to its weirdness.
