Forums / Online Communities for Musicians: recommendations for Lo-Fi Electronic Pop?

I like hanging out on internet forums / message boards but my usual one seems to be slowly dying. And was often not that into the kinds of Music I am.

So I'm looking for somewhere new to hang. You have any suggestions?

I'm looking for a nice mix of discussion on more pop-ish "indie" electro music ranging from say:
- music gear discussion
- to songwriting / recording / production
- critique of each others music
- critique of current pop charts

I do spend a bit of time on gearslutz but find it too 'gear-centric' (well obviously) and a bit too 'polished cheezy pop music'.

and I don't like ones that are too focused on a particular software app (I've looked in on AbletonLive forums occasionally0

i spend more time browsing guitar and bass forums, so i'm not sure, but they're worth a look

This here We Are The Music Makers subreddit fits your requirements, I think.

I will talk all day about low-fi electronic pop if you would like.
