Which style of electronic music Is your favorite? (not all dance music is techno btw) As for me I'll say Hardstyles and Happy hardcore.

I don't really go by genres. I don't know any genre well enough (yet) to say I like it for sure. For example, I like Portishead, but I don't know if I like other "trip-hop" because I haven't heard any. So I don't know if I like trip-hop, or just Portishead.

I like DJ Shadow's Endtroducing... (instrumental hip-hop), Air's Moon Safari and Talkie Walkie, Radiohead's Kid A and Amnesiac (and b-sides from that era), Portishead's Third (and most other stuff I've heard of theirs), and a couple of songs by Amon Tobin from Bricolage (drum 'n bass makes me feel sick, but the first three songs on that record, and I think a couple others, are pretty clear of that style).

So I guess in general, I'm not a fan of really fast-paced or chaotic electronic music, like dance music and drum 'n bass. I prefer electronic music that's more downtempo. I don't really like dubstep from what I've heard of it, though. Everybody raves about Burial's Untrue like they're the next Portishead, but I just don't feel it. I'm not really a big fan of the few songs I've heard classified as "IDM" either.

I also like some ambient music, though some ambient music isn't electronic (e.g. Stars of the Lids).

I don't really listen to electronic like that but I will listen to anything good. I have this one artist on my iPod. Her name is M.I.A. (you might have heard of her) and her genre is electronic. I'm not sure which type but I like her style.

I officially love this thread. And M.I.A. is more hip hop, which I still argue to be a genre of electronic music.

My favorites are definitely house and electro, but trance is my first love. I also like industrial/ebm, trip-hop, acid jazz (LOVE Jazzanova and Mark Farina) I also like hip-hop, minimal, ACTUAL techno, drum and bass, breaks. Pretty much everything, as long as it's well done.

NOT a fan of Cascada OR Basshunter. They can rot in hell.

I thought M.I.A. Was more hip hop, too but iTunes put her under the Electronic category. I don't know why, though.

I wouldn't consider Cascada electronic. She's more Dance than Electronic.
