Ishkur’s Guide to Electronic Music



This guide favors authenticity over accuracy, and it aims to entertain before it informs. It is only as accurate as it feels it needs to be. It is constantly changing and it is infinitely mutable, so the map, the music, and my self-righteous opinions are all subject to change as I discover, investigate, and incorporate new knowledge and more music. Nothing is definitive.

This is an educational resource, not a music sharing service. There are no complete songs here. All tracks are low quality sub-2 minute samples. If you want the music, do the artists a solid and buy it from them through legitimate channels.


How to Use

Scroll out to explore scenes. Scroll in to explore genres. Scroll in even more to explore individual years.

Select a button to listen to all the music in that genre.

Select any individual year to listen to the music of the genre released in that specific year.

Years are highlighted by quantity so brighter years have more music.

The music panel loads when you select a button that has music (which is just about everything).

It behaves like any music player, with a Play/Pause button, a progress bar, volume control for desktop (mobile users can use their side buttons), a Next Track button, a playlist to look through all the music queued, and an Info Panel that explains stuff about the genre. The Info Panel pops up automatically when you select a genre button, but not for years.

The music panel information and buttons may be in a different arrangement depending on your device but they’re all there and they all work the same.

At the top of the screen is a dynamic timeline that follows you where you go and keeps you informed of which era you are in.

Suggested usage: Ignore scenes and genres. Instead, pick a single year and move through the guide vertically, listening to different music released in that year.

Go exploring. Listen and learn about music you don’t know anything about. You’re not here to have your personal taste in music validated or discredited.

Music playback is randomized to spread the wealth around.
