Terminology in defining music genres can be very strange. One person may assign
a track into a genre that another person would assign into a completely
different genre. Recently I was searching for the Laurent Wolf track "About
That" and a US-based music website labelled it "Hard House"... really?!!!
Many times defining music serves no useful purpose and adds to confusion. It is
all music! It may also have the effect of prejudicing one's mind to dislike a
track before it has even been heard by the listener... (I certainly would not
have gone into the hard house section to look for Laurent Wolf tracks!). It may
marginalise and alienate the music and the listeners of that music.
It begs the question: What is dance music? what is club music? what is house
music? (...it's a spiritual thang), what is (US) garage?
A useful purpose defining music serves is to facilitate and direct the
searching, exploration and enjoyment of music by lovers and others. But in this
pursuit one would hope that an open mind is kept and respect is shown for
difference and diversity. Soul Good!
