Artists including AUX 88, Cygnus, The Exaltics, and more have a new home on Beatport as they’ve launched a page focused on Electro.
This year has seen Beatport continue to make huge strides forward in their efforts to showcase different genres within the dance music scene and keep listeners grooving to the beat. Earlier this year they debuted genre pages for Hard Techno, Dance / Electro Pop, and Organic House & Downtempo, while consistently hosting livestreams featuring artists from around the world. Now, they’ve announced their latest genre page that focuses solely on the sounds of Electro.
The new genre page for Electro will help celebrate artists and labels who have helped keep the sound alive over the years and further grow it during its recent resurgence in popularity. Compiling the sounds of Classic, Detroit, and Modern Electro into one, it will quickly become a hub for anyone looking to immerse themselves in tracks that feature 808 drum patterns and robotic melodies on labels such as Frustrated Funk and Klakson.
Which artists will fall under the Beatport Electro [Classic / Detroit / Modern] umbrella? AUX 88, 214, Cygnus, The Exaltics, VC-118A, and Drexciya to name a few, but the list is sure to grow as the genre continues to surge back into the forefront of the scene. Recent releases that have already begun to populate the new page include the Modern Body EP by DMX Krew and the Embody EP by Ballet Mechanique.
Head over to the Electro [Classic / Detroit / Modern] page on Beatport to dive into the sounds of the genre and get a taste of the style that helped shape the dance music scene today.
