Glitch Soulazz

Definition: (See jazzstep); an amalgamation of gitchhop or DJ-produced electronic music with traditional jazz or blues elements. 

It's  not jazz. It's also not your  normal wobble nerd glitchy hop (in fact, it's better). Moby was an early dabbler in Glitch Jazz, but guys like Pretty Lights and The Marvel Years have been expanding the genre ever since.

Country DANCE Music

Definition: (See inexplicable); Country Dance Music, where a 4-on-the-floor beat and electronic production are overlaid with folk or country-like melodies and vocals. 

Where, oh where, did CDM come from? Maybe the music industry got bored and decided to experiment with two of history's most hate-it-or-love-it genres. Either way, here it is, and if Pitbull's 'Timber' sticks around on the charts any longer, then CDM might be here to stay.
