Fi-NRG

Post by ultraskool on Mon Aug 22, 2011 11:44 am

Hi guys,

How is everyone going? Question today, "is Fi-NRG a proper genre as such or is it a variation of the Freeform genre' - that strangely Ishkur from www.di.fm doesn't list as an established 'Dance music genre' as such?

Is it short for 'Finnish NRG music' or a Finnish Freeform perhaps?

Over and out for the day.

To be honest, I doubt that FiNRG is a recognised genre. It doesn't suprise me its not listed...

They define themselves as a 'Finnish Hard Dance' record label, because they do NRG, Hard Trance, Freeform and the occasional Hardcore or D&B tune.

It's difficult to get anyone that's not into Hardcore previously to understand what Freeform is, to anyone who's not as involved as we are, it's just another subgenre of Hardcore.

I reckon that FiNRG probably stands for Finnish NRG. Remember that FiNRG and Finnish Hard Dance are mostly derived from a genre called 'Suomisaundi'. Which is a kind of Psytrance. If you think what alot of FiNRG stuff is, its hyped-up Psy. Where as UK Freeform is mainly based on Hard Trance and Hardcore // Trancecore.

Personally i'd like to define them as two different subgenres, but i doubt that the EDM world would agree.

Now you've just touched on an important point in the formation of Freeform music! I reckon the Psytrance and darker, more Acid Hardkore sounds had a lot to do in this respect. Although I sometimes think of the Term "Hi-NRG" - could that have been a complete mixup somewhere along the way?? affraid
LOL

Isn't 'Hi-NRG' a gash type of Eurobeat? (Darren Styles, Clubland, etc..)

And yeah Psy had a massive influence in the formation of Finnish Freeform, thats why their sound is like it is.

Good question... I always thought the name 'FINRG' came about as a way of identifying the freeform which was pioneered out of Finland by the likes of Carbon Based, Alek Szahala etc.

That said, I think it is recognised nowadays as an 'official' sub-genre of hardcore/ freeform due to its popularity.

Could be wrong though Smile

I think our Niché is too small to be recgonising subgenres to be honest. Hehe Smile

FINRG is the record label, always has been. Although, i do see your point, it is A style all of its own...

The thing with Freeform is, it is free of form. I know thats stating the obvious, but how can you allocate subgenres to a genre that has no real boundaries?
