Reich is only barely an electronic composer (though influential on it with his work with the San Francisco Tape Music Center) and Glass generally wasn't.

I like Reich before he went orchestral. I think his stuff works best in the percussion medium though 18 Musicians is one of my favorite works.

There's a great deal of Glass I admire but he made way too much music. Certainly paid his bills (especially when he was an in-demand film composer) but it means I have to sort out a lot of wheat from chaff.

There's a bit of crossover between avant-garde stuff and early minimalism with early electronic music (Reich started with tape music, after all) but yeah it's separate genres since like the 70s
