    In previous discussions on here we already pointed out that the term "Electro" or "Elektro", on a small level, already appeared in context of late 1970s electronic music in France, Germany and Japan. There are some record covers and magazin articles from the time proving it. So recognizing that, the Streetsound label was actually the first to "hi-jack" the term, using it for what really should have been called "Electro-Hiphop" or "Electro-Rap".


    The farther one goes from that point the more messy it gets trying track down the ways of the "Electro" term and the styles that went under it in different scenes and areas of the world. It's save to say though that in the 90s the "Electro" term was reclaimed by the electronic music scene. "New School Electro" or "Techno-Electro" as it's still being produced today and its heavily Kraftwerk influenced sound-design character was a new genre that slowly emerged from the Techno underground throughout the 90s.


    Along also came a revival of the classic Electrofunk and Electro-Hiphop sound, which ultimately overshadowed the momentum of the new Electro genre to an extend that all Electro using the typical syncopated beats was considered retro and old school. After a short commercial overkill peak with cheesy b-boy Electro even making it into the big charts (at least in Germany) it was over.


    The "Electro" term was still around for some time, but it then suddenly also included the upcoming Italo-Disco revival, Electroclash etc. paving the way for "Electro" to be used again as a short term for all electronic music in general. "Our" types of Electro music were left back underground robbed of its name as if it never existed...



    I am sorry but this particular phrase, '[...] but also in many ways the beginning of Hip Hop' immediately indicates that the writer may not have a full understanding of Hip Hop and it's origins and evolution, which is (admittedly) quite complicated and still contested. Part of the difficulty will always be in attempting to articulate a specific and singular starting point for a genre, or a culture.

    :wow:


    Depends on what you read into these few words. The short-lived fusion of electronic music and hip hop in the early 80s was for sure a milestone in both genres evolution. And a milestone like this could be seen "in many ways" as a "beginning". Especially for hip hop, as songs like "Planet Rock" brought the music to a wider audience.


    I almost missed those Electro/Hiphop discussions. :ugly:

    Never thought I'd ever say this, but this David Hasselhoff song is quite good.. :uglysmile:

    It's not supposed to be like this. I noticed that too after I made a minor software update yesterday.
    I thought only I had this because I'm switching between two accounts.

    But for the login it's actually set to appear only after the 3rd failed login attempt.


    I've deactivated it completely now and will check with the software developer.

    Welcome everyone to the upgraded Electro Empire community & sorry for the downtime!


    After successfully completing a little marathon of software and server problems, we seized the opportunity to not only fix things, but also to make a full update of the community software and design. The previous software was already running since 2008, and because it had so many custom made changes, it was not very flexible regarding keeping it updated, which ultimately caused the problems.


    No data was lost during the transfer to the new community software. User accounts, private messages and threads have all been transferred.


    We are now back on a fresh new server with up-to-date & easy to maintain community software. The new design also comes with some important features to meet todays usability requirements.



    MOBILE-FRIENDLY
    The new design is programmed "responsive", which means it adapts automaticly to whatever size your screen is on the mobil phone, tablet or home computer. If you are on a home computer, try resizing your browser window to see the effect!





    FACEBOOK / TWITTER LOGIN
    You can now also use your Facebook or Twitter account to register and login to ElectroEmpire.com. No more extra password for EE, login with just 1 click. For more info click here!





    EMBEDDING NEWS
    Embedding YouTube, Soundcloud, JunoDownload, Mixcloud players has become much easier! All you need to do is to copy & paste the full URL from your browser and the players will appear automaticly. The only exception stays Bandcamp. For more info click here!





    THE MISSION OF ELECTRO EMPIRE
    We are well aware that these are no easy times for traditional community websites like this, and of course we already had thoughts of giving up like all the other Electro forums that once were. But then again we think it's important to keep this special platform the first & oldest Electro internet community (established 1998) running as a last independent sanctuary for everyone escaping the social media matrix and everyone who simply appreciates an easy accessable, unfiltered look at spam-free, concentrated Electro activities packed into one place that's run entirely by the scene for the scene.


    In recent times the ElectroEmpire.com website had about 15 million hits per year, so despite that posting activity didn't set new records, this means that a lot of people (and some robots :cylon: ) keep looking here every day. Help us (or ultimately yourself) to fill EE with things worth looking! Promote yourself, your new releases, radio show or help spread the word for new or old music that has not been mentioned here before. Discuss, ask & share your knowledge.


    Although running the technical side of EE costs money, we will never ask for donations. Never the less, if you ever feel like supporting this platform, why not take a look at the output of the Electro Empire record label (click here) that launched in 2014 and receive some fresh music in return. New releases will be coming soon!


    We hope you like the new design or will get used to it soon. For any questions or feedback, reply in this thread or use the contact form.


    "May the empire endure!"

    one of the few true pioneers of electronic music. rest in peace.
