A musical genre where the intention is to produce a discordant and/or disjointed sound. It is most commonly found in DJ'ing and dance music production.
In a historical context, the sound did not originate from a single individual but rather a collective of visionaries, who used the internet to collaborate. As such, pioneering shonkalists and their seminal creations can be found at various websites - in particular, abletonlivedj.com.
