Electronica is not my area of expertise and I have difficulty discerning between all of the subgenres. Free mix to anyone who can tell me the difference between Goa and Gabba. Here's a smattering of tracks that I enjoy quite a bit. Listen.

Thanks, I think I am more in the dark than you, but I appreciate the tutorial.

Interesting mix
Goa is sort of danceable, psychedelic trance, classical India-styled electronica. Gabba or Gabber falls into the hardcore/techno category, sometimes with loud, distorted lyrics & feedback. I don't really like either - but would take Goa if a gun were held to my head.

Goa is about 140 to 160 bpm with lots of melodic intertwining strings and four to the floor beat.Sometimes with some acid lines and floaty lyrics thrown in. Not to dis-similar from trance music but more psychedelic. Colourful crowds and glow sticks, more on the hippie tip. Sounds like a journey to nowhere. The new spin off is Psytrance, which is a bit harder.
Gabba is anything from 180 to 250 bpm. I think this started in Holland-Rotterdam. Fast industrial strength hardcore techno. Comes with distorted beats, screaming lyrics with crazy percussion and minimal synth action. Like having a cartoon drill put next to you brain. (and feet) Thrash metal but without the guitars. More a mentalist vibe. I agree with g.a.b. l@bs - Not fond of either. Nice tunes by the way.

Thanks to g.a.b. and Kata for the explanations of the differences between goa and gabba, which, by the way, do not appear on this mix. Free mix goes to g.a.b. !
