Electronic Dance Music: Do you know what you're listening to?

  • This test will determine how much you really know about electronic dance music, history, culture, and technology. Questions range from mainstream to esoteric, and are intended to educate as well as assess, and scores for each question are weighted on difficulty. Some questions have more than one correct answer, sometimes with different scores. A few answers will also result in deductions. Each major genre is also scored separately.

     

    The first few sections test general knowledge of electronic music and its various genres. The last part asks you to identify the genre of specific songs (linked on Youtube). Try not to look at the comments, and rely instead on your knowledge.
