Just turned 30 and still love it when it's done well! I find it great music to relax to.

I think there's lots of us 30 somethings around here, at least I'd hope there would be. This music has been around long enough that its fanbase should include our age bracket. Im 32 and don't listen to anything but "electronica", well ok, maybe a lil 80s and oldskool hophop for good measure

Never too old - I'm closing in on 50, and I still like the electronic music! It's still popular here at the old folks home!!!

but people say this music is "dead" in the US. I'm 32 and have been into this music since about 87/88. Inner City "Good Life" was the house song that started it all for me.

35.
Nevar, ever used to like it. At all. Now I keep visiting Boombox. The mash-ups are a great gateway drug for old heads like me.

I'm a 37 year old white guy who lives in the rural South, and I've always loved and still love dance and electronica. I've been into dance since the big freestyle boom in the mid/late 80s. So this genre definately crosses over more barriers than most assume.
I'm still just as into current music now as I was 20 years ago in my teens (in the 80s), and i don't ever see that changing. So count me as another who will be waving my glowstick and waiting on the latest Ministry of Sound CD to arrive at the old folks home.

LOL, ah the Ministry of Sound... from a country that actually appreciates electronic music.

I'll never forget in 1996 when I was in London for a week listening to Kiss 100 (which was excellent back then: Robert Miles, Gusto, etc.). I had just been overwhelemed by how mainstream this music was over there. Me and my friend were at Gatwick about to catch our plane back home and we were grabbing breakfast at the McDonald's at the airport. Over the PA system there they were playing electronic music. House, drum and bass, etc. It was like 10am on a Sudnay morning! And it was just everyday background music for them.

Wow.

It was pretty tough to leave that and return to the land of Hootie and the Gin Blossoms.

Man, I thought I was getting old, but I feel like a youngin' compared to some of you guys, lol just kidding. I'm 22 and have been listening to dance music for as long as I can remember. Even before I really got into music, I recall being exposed to 80's dance and freestyle to some extent.

Ah, those were the days, with (in it's early legal FM days) Techno, Trance, House, Reggae, etc getting played during the daytimes! Nowadays however, it's swung in the opposite direction and have a Hip-Hop / RnB to Dance Ratio of 5:1.
