Best Answer

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 music.

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 ♥ :))
