I don't know how to differentiate between all these so-called genres. I first got interested in electronic music when I first saw "A Clockwork Orange" - late '60s? If it's created with synths, it's just electronic music to me.

That "early hardstyle" you posted. - that's drum-machine presets... I'm sorry
Reversed base, distorted kicks, 130-150bpm, explosions, a specific sound, specific structure... No, Hardstyle is a style on it's own, started from scratch and very distinctive. Throw me some records and I can sort them all in their respective styles.

If you call anything electronic Techno then I can only conclude that your don't know anything about electronic music. Do you even know how real Techno sounds? It has an unpredictive structure (let's you start dancing when it's not yet time to - everyone is looking at each other to see if there are more people that made the mistake), it has an evolved Detroid Techno sound with trancy, wierd, never heared before cute little spacy sounds and wierd noices.

PS: Every style and subgenre also has it's own feeling and vibe to it. If you can't feel it than you are also not a electronic music lover.

Thank you!
Exactly, put the ride of the walkyres through a synth, and you have Techno Wagner.

Vincent, I'm sure you can differentiate, that doesn't mean it isn't silly. It's marginally different. I'm sure you can, because I can tell dozens of different styles of Jazz apart. Often enough I can hear out who plays what even if I've never heard the record before. I still call it all "Jazz" There's a basic theme usually and then the band improvises around it = Jazz.
You turn on a drum machine, put on a record and dance around like you've got anything to do with it = Techno

If you insist that Techno is a subgenre, then what is the umbrella term?

Have you guys ever used a modular synth? That might stop all that categorization nonsense. You change the envelope and oscillator settings, and you are in an entirely different genre by your definition, but all you did was twist two knobs for a fraction of an inch.
