Mastermind. Talk about your specialist subject:

My specialist subject: Contemporary New Wave Artists (Electroclash).

Electroclash started with a dribble of bands in the late 90's. Among these were DMX Krew, Chicks on Speed & Felix the Housecat. The genre's steadilly grown and now has 100+ artists. The sound derives directly from New Wave artists of the early 80's, from Soft Cell and the Human League to Ultravox and Depeche Mode. The theme tends to be sexy and suave, you could probably dance to most of the tracks. The "Electroclash" genre is largely underground, with very few artists making it big (yet). I predict it should hit the mainstream in 2004/5.

Key albums:
Chicks on Speed - Will Save Us All
DMX Krew - We Are DMX
DMX Krew - Ffressshh!
Dot Allison - We Are Science
FC Kahuna - Machine Says Yes
Felix Da Housecat - Kittenz & Thee Glitz
FischerSpooner - #1
