I personally think that that is the best type of music and I just wanted to start a topic about it. So what are some genres/artists everyone listens to?

I Enjoy Orbital, dj Shadow, Nujabes, Gui Boratto, Crystal Castles, 80 Kidz, Boys Noize, Daft Punk. Generally I just listen random tracks from other artists but the ones I listed I enjoy on a more regular basis. Lovely genre.

I recognized a lot of those artists but yeah, I know what you mean. There are too many randoms to keep track of, lol. And it's and amazing genre :D

Almost forgot. Burial. He's been releasing some stuff the past few years. Not sure when he is due for another LP though. People who haven't listened to him (though he's not exactly obscure by any means) should go ahead and listen to his 2012 release "Kindred".

I love many different kinds of music but I don't understand this at all. Is it all just beeps and whistles or does anyone do any singing? I like rock music with electronic elements though - Shifting Skin by ON [a Ken Andrews side-project] is probably my all time favorite but it is still rock music at heart. That deadmau5 track is pretty good though - I just wish there was some singing otherwise it's more like background noise to me.

This is the problem with the general music audience. I guess people can't relate to music unless it has singing. Why is that so important? It's like the people that know the lead singer of a band but have no idea who the other guys are that make the band what it is. But who am I kidding, that's just background noise. You like songs, I like music. Electronica is a wonderful form of music that is so deep and layered, I prefer it not be riddled with vocals. That said, some songs that have vocals are great and can add to the experience but the best of the best is just instrumental, imo.

There are so many different sub-genres of techno that it goes far beyond "beeps and whistles." Entire genres exist of nothing but vocals, some of just drum and bass, etc. To the average listener, it will all sound the same, but once you actually get into the music, you'll be able to distinguish all of the differences over time.

Personally, I listen to a good mix of frisson, trance, house, lounge, chill, and whatever else comes up on random for the day.

There's many different kinds and I'm certainly not enough of an enthusiast to give good explanations, but in general electronic music takes time to appreciate, similar to more complicated forms of rock and instrumental. Most people like the catchy stuff, but deeper tracks often sound repetitive until you give them a good listen all the way through.

That deadmau5 track progresses through some unbelievable layers, so make sure to use the best sound system possible!

Some other kinds I've been listening to recently:

Tokimonsta:


Gold Panda:


Four Tet:


Cahb (drum & bass):


Some decent dubstep:

I got drawn into eletronic music when I picked up Amplitude for PS2. Deiselboy is still one of my favorites.



This isn't the version on Amplitude, but I like this remix of Subculture more



Hive - Ultrasonic sound was used as an Adult Swim promo once and I still listen to this track all the me

I like music just fine. I've got nothing against instrumentals or anything but I do prefer there to be some singing involved at some point otherwise it gets monotonous. Computers are just too impersonal/precise to get me to "feel" anything. I could listen to long Clapton or Page solos in the middle of 20+ minute songs and never get sick of them but that's because the solos actually go somewhere. I don't know. Personal preference I guess.

For example (since it is in your sig), Ghosts I-IV is really good but I'll never just put it on while I'm in the car but if I'm at work and not really paying attention it is good in the background. I do wish that he recorded vocals over a lot of these tracks though - it would be an amazing NIN album but instead if I want to listen to NIN I'd much rather put on The Fragile.

I didn't know DJ Shadow was considered electronic music. To be honest, I don't think I've heard that term until right now. DJ shadow - Organ donor. Man, I can bust some moves to this beat. Know any other songs like that?

HUGE Electronic Music fan. Ive been since mid 90's. Depeche Mode is easily my favorite band, for many reasons, and one of the most influential bands to EDM of all time.

The reason why ive gravitated to loving Electronic music over any other genre is because it evolves much faster than most others (in a good way or bad way (dubstep IMO :shame:), compared to other genres that stay stagnate or offer nothing new. Mostly why i haven't liked most American music in years.

There's TONS of sub genres in Electronic music and i've heard most of them and i've always found something i like or don't. I still kina prefer a "Rock / Band" element to it, which is still hard to come by.

I love many different kinds of music but I don't understand this at all. Is it all just beeps and whistles or does anyone do any singing? I like rock music with electronic elements though - Shifting Skin by ON [a Ken Andrews side-project] is probably my all time favorite but it is still rock music at heart. That deadmau5 track is pretty good though - I just wish there was some singing otherwise it's more like background noise to me.


2 of my favorite current bands are Pendulum and Celldweller for that reason. Electronic sound with in a "Rock" background, and a perfect example why i love EDM in the first place.

"Celldweller - Wish Upon A Black Star" just came out 4 days ago and i HIGHLY recommend it. :)

And Pendulum, who i've raved about on this board plenty of times before.

I'm mostly familiar with your first 4 examples. The Avalanches are godly. I think they are soon releasing a reissue of their debut which is pretty much one of the best start to finish albums I've heard in any genre.

(sorry I couldn't quote your examples. It was messing up my post)

The spoiler tags were screwing up for me too.

I created an Avalanches station on Pandora and it gave me a lot of similar stuff. I played "Since I left you" while at a resort in the Carribean and every time I hear it, it takes me back...

Nice thread. I have recently gotten into electronic music and sub-genres like trance but have really no idea where to go for new music ideas/discussion. This thread and links in the thread will be a great help.

Do this.

Go to pandora. Put in some artist you're familiar with. Make a station and listen to it. You'll get a treasure trove of new music based on what is similar. I'll occasionally have some crossover between channels I create, and some true wtf moments, but overall it's a decent way to broaden your horizons some.

the first four minutes of that deadmau5 song "Strobe" that was posted is awesome...the rest of it sucked.

Edit: mtxbass1, that Tycho artist or w/e you call him is pretty good.

I always liked this Tycho remix.



I've been listening to Mr. Oizo a lot recently too, this one even has vocals, just for you Jav.



Another good newer French house track with vocals, this one by Feadz with Kito.

Electronic Music is just the genre of music, its like saying "Rock Music" or "Jazz music", etc.

In that, you got your sub genres (Different types of electronic music). Techno, House, Trance, Dubstep and many many many more. More collectively just called EDM. (Electronic Dance Music).

"Techno" was a sub genre that was big in the 90's, and thats when it was getting some recognition state side. Ever since, people that don't really know about EDM just label it ALL as "Techno", which drives me nuts. :lol: Im not a huge fan of it, but back in the 90's Techno and House music ruled all. Techno is still around, but EDM has evolved so much from its original tree branch of genres.
