Is there a difference between Electronica and Electronic music?
Electronic music refers to music that emphasizes the use of
electronic musical instruments or electronic music technology as a
central aspect of the sound of the music.
Electronica includes a wide range of contemporary electronic
music designed for a wide range of uses, including foreground
listening, some forms of dancing, and background music for other
activities; but unlike electronic dance music, it is not
specifically made for dancing.
So, you know how pop has subgenres, like dance pop, bubblegum
pop, piano pop, etc? Electronica is just a subgenre of electronic
As a side note, if you think you would be a fan of
electronica & electronic, see the band Crystal Castles. Can't
stop listening for YEARS ♥ :))
