why the duplication?[edit]

There seem to be a lot of genres that appear twice in this template... Btyner (talk) 02:07, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

It was because of the use of Template:Electronic music navbox. I've removed it. Hyacinth (talk) 06:40, 23 September 2012 (UTC)


I don't feel "electronica" is the proper name for this template, because it covers various genres, such as eurodance and trance, which don't usually fall under the electronica label. Still, if we change its name to "Electronic dance music", the same problem would appear with other genres in it such as ambient and glitch. Electronic music already has a template of its own (Template:Electronic music), so I'm not really sure what name would suit this template best. Any thoughts? --Λeternus (talk) 15:47, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

I would suggest to merge "Electronica" template with "Electronic music", maybe additionally add EDM as a standalone template as well. --prokaryotes (talk) 15:51, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
But the thing is that there are overlapping genres, which use digital and/or analog devices to produce music (downtempo, lounge, chillout etc) -- so maybe add a "Digital music" genre template? --prokaryotes (talk) 15:54, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Template:Electronic music would do because its titled "Electronic and electroacoustic music", but the current form is kind of "artsy" - I'm not sure it would mix well will the electronic dance side. It would need to be rewritten entirely. --Λeternus (talk) 16:19, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Maybe we should merge Electronica with Electronic Music, and have a separate template for EDM? --prokaryotes (talk) 18:55, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
