Geeeeeetar

Music has seen it's fair share of true rock legends. Legends such as Led Zeppelin, The Who, and The Jonas Brothers, to name a few. So today's track-a-day is from the genre, Electrorock.

Well, I was originally going to post a Trance track I received by one of my viewers, which can be you, just email it to me. But I will save that for another day. Then I was going to post some techno, but I'll do that another time. Finally, I settled on posting an electrorock track.

Electrorock is a very, very obscure genre, yet it makes sense once you listen to it. It's not exactly hardcore, but I imagine it can be if you find the right DJ. To explain what electrorock is, take electrohouse (such as the Justice track I posted) and change the blaring bass to a blaring guitar. Then, add some Junglish lyrics (which you've also heard from the Pendulum track), and finally add a quick drum beat and you've got electrorock. In other words, it's rock, but made with computers.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of this genre. It sounds a little too "rave-ish" to me, but my goal for ilictronix is to introduce every subgenre of electronic the best I can. Luckily, I have a bunch of dedicated listeners who critique me constantly :-D.

But I'm sure you don't want to read and just listen to some music. So here's an electrorock track I found from one of my albums appropriately entitled "Electrorock."

It sounds like somebody screwing around with the presets in Garageband. In a really, really cool way.
