Personally, I couldn’t tell you the difference between drum and bass, house, rave, techno, dubstep, etc. However, I can tell you that I generally like a lot of electronic music; I’m a big fan of industrial; and the majority of my electronic music is distributed by FiXT Music.
If you’re a fan of various types of electronic (they have their music filed under nearly 100 different genres), I would highly recommend you check out what they have to offer.
A lot of the music in the FiXT catalog can be found in the Zune Marketplace. Some good places to start would be:
The great thing is, if you decide you like the music, you can generally get pretty good prices if you order directly from FiXT. In addition, much of the music distributed by FiXT is “podsafe”. What they mean by “podsafe”, basically, is that, once you buy the music, you own it and can use it just about any way you want. If you want to use it as the background music for your new YouTube video, go ahead. If you want to use it as the intro to your podcast, you can do that, too. As long as you give credit where credit is due, and the music can’t easily be extracted from the package you distribute, you can pretty much use it.
What’s more, they are constantly distributing free samples of their music. Every season, they release a free compilation; many of their artists give away free tracks and remixes on their blogs, Twitter and Facebook; and they occasionally just toss out other free music just for the heck of it.
So, like I said, if you’re into electronic music, be sure to check out FiXT Music and their artists. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
