    Default The Electronic Music Thread

    I've created this thread to serve as a place for Electro-heads to discuss Electronic music.

    Electronic music has many sub-genres, such as Ambient, Drum and bass, Breakbeat, Downbeat, House, Techno, Trance, IDM, Nu-jazz, Trip hop, Ambient etc.

    Personally, I dislike commercial House/Trance music.

    I've recently been listening to Wisp, an IDM artist. His stuff is quite chilled, dreamy, hypnotic and somewhat theraputic. You can download some of his albums here for free, they are really good! I would probably recommend the "Selected Ambient Works 2: Reworked" album for anyone interested in checking out what kind of stuff Wisp makes.

    I also love Nu-jazz/Electronic jazz. Some artists I can recommend are Cinematic Orchestra, Skalpel, Jaga Jazzist, Funki Porcini and Xploding Plastix.

    My favorite Electronic record label is Ninja Tune.

    Happy listening

    If you like Electro, download Calvertron's July 2007 mix off his MySpace page. Good stuffs

    /me laments the decline of so many good electro tunes into the depths of Ministry of Sound hell.

    "Oh this is an excellent electro tune. It's perfect as it is. So lets paste some arb vocals over it to make it more commercial!!!!"

    I used to be big into DnB in the late 90's and then techno/electro a few years back, but haven't really listened to much electronic stuff in the last couple of years. The last good album I bought was Booka Shade's Movements.

    Fave label is Warp.

    Can't remember where I saw them in 2006 but pretty sure it was CT EarthDance. Wherever it was, it was incredible. Funky and fun stuff.
