Ishkur’s Guide To Electronic Music just unleashed its latest version — and with this comes the most updated snapshot of dance music’s various subgenres throughout the decades.


The cult-classic website is dedicated to educating on the course of dance music over 80 years. Audio clips and descriptions run deep, so you can get down as you’re learning. It’s easy to get lost in the music, but a new tutorial will help you navigate the website with much ease.

The guide, originally created in 1999, keeps that retro feel intact while bringing house, techno and more into 2019. 20 years later, it’s still a great tool. New entries include experimental techno as well as “braindance.”

The disclaimer playfully reads: “Just make sure your head is completely pulled out of your ass before proceeding.”

Ishkur’s Guide To Electronic Music is a lot more fun to experience, rather than explain. So dive right in here!
