    Default Genre Questions

    I'm making this a sticky thread, for when people are tagging files & are unsure of genre specifics.

    I've been guilty in the past of tagging virtually every upbeat electronic based track as Dance, rather than going into specifics & doing some research, I guess a lot of them could be tagged as House, I don't know (not my field of expertise, ask me to tell you if a track is Ska, Rocksteady or Reggae however, or Thrash / Death / Black Metal....)

    Anyway, I'll start it off.

    What genres would you say the following tracks come under?

    Clement Marfo & The Frontline = Champion

    Far East Movement ft. Cover Drive = Turn Up The Love

    Inna = Endless

    Inna - Vocal House (Maybe even Balearic)

    The other two. Gawd knows

    10s-Rnb, 10s-dance, 10s-dance

    Is how I would categorise. I just spilt on decade and rough genre

    I then put the track into specific playlists if it fits, so if those were big tracks they might go into 'Current Hits' which gets reviews every month or so.

    I really can't believe nobody else has an opinion on this.

    Come on guys, what genres would you say they are?

    I don't appear to have any of these songs, hence my lack of reply!

    I always use Wikipedia when tagging tracks so I have:

    Far East Movement ft. Cover Drive = Turn Up The Love (Dance)
    Inna = Endless (Eurodance)

    Could not find any info on this one on Wikipedia and dont have it yet but looking around on the net I would tag it -

    Clement Marfo & The Frontline = Champion (Hip Hop)

    Hope this helps
