How are each tracks categorized under the umbrella of EDM?
Who Am I ?
My name is Gabriel Estrada, I listen to Electronic Music, and just the potential and form of art amuses me, I enjoy listening to music that is well composed that is not generic garbage. I listen to all different genres and sub-genres in Electronic Music such as Vapor-Wave, Sub Genre Future Funk, Future Bass, Chill House, Drum and Bass, Experimental, Future House, Nu-Disco, Kawaii-EDM and countless other genres. I find it disturbing when someone who knows how to compose music creates a worthless track. I very much like music that does not constrain itself to a certain EDM genre. I also watch anime and read manga but at moments I find it difficult to find good content.
