With about a decade's distance now from electroclash's birth in proto-hipster South Williamsburg, it seems grossly unfair to still categorize the scene's stars as such. The groups who most thoroughly embraced the trend long ago disbanded (Anyone remember Dirty Sanchez? Creme de Menthe? W.I.T.? No? Oh. Thought so.) Meanwhile, the talented producers and DJs have changed with the times. (Although, come to think of it, whither Larry Tee?)
