It's getting outta hand

I was just looking at records online, and I've noticed that this whole "sub classification" thing is getting outta hand.. I mean, WTF is "Peak Hour Electro Trance"... are we getting a bit too specific here.. I think so!!

i like adding names upon names to generes, its fun :D but only really while shooting the shit, record shops and what not should certainly keep the classifications down to a minimum.

hmmm... I guess if you want to be all sophisticated you can start talking about how you like epic trance better than big room trance.. but me, i don't even classify myself as a trance dj.. i just like to think of myself as playing good music, that way I don't limit myself... and nobody can be like "hey, this is house, i thought this guy played only "peak hour electro uk two-step acid trance" lol

got any?
the best os when you move different places, IE BC in my case, people are the worst here for over classifying (or mis classifying music)
some of the best lines I've heard
"I like housey house"
" I like disco house but not goovy disco house"
" prog" giggle giggle giggle
generally I think if a music classification has more then two words its over classifying. it.
IE: Eric trance :D
Epic moring electro vocal trance = redundant

genres :rolleyes:

i just listen to it and if i like it i buy it.

thats exactly why i don't by MY records online. although i do order alot of stuff for the store solely on genre sub-titles so sometimes it's handy.... but i preferr to touch my records before i by them for my own collection.
