My iTunes is kinda lame right now, all i have is my guitar stuff, a few hardcore techno bands, and some main stream rap, but the most connecting music I believe is Electronica, only one or two bands in my Itunes are electronica.

AND I WANT MOAR!!!!

any band suggestions?

(I recently looked up MileHI which is produced by the professional snowboarder JJ Thomas, and it makes me cream myself...)

Broaden your genres.

A little Protest the Hero won't hurt, try some.

That's not exactly old school, but it's still awesome.

TS You're being far, far too vague. Electronic music comes in just as many, if not more, genres than guitar based music. Give us more of a clue

Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, Squarepusher, Venetian Snares, Amon Tobin, The Orb, Radiohead's post-OK Computer stuff, there's way too much to name. Also google "DJ Mixes" and you will find a LOT of free stuff.

Their first record dropped in 2004 that's nowhere near old school.

Old school for electronic music is 80s-early 90s (at a stretch)
make Industrial and/or experimental electronic music? Join my group!

I really like Danse Macabre, I think that's their most well composed of everything I've listened to from them. You might check out The Postal Service dude.

How the sweet fuck did I forget Autechre? DJ Shadow's pretty decent as well, if you're not a "sampling is stealing" nazi.

And if you are one of those nazis, here's an analogy: Is a collage any less art than a regular painting? The original pictures involved in a collage are not the artist's own creations, but they are made into something new. The same goes for sampling.

I'm sorry if people have already mentioned them, but check out Bonobo, especially the song "Recurring."

Also check out Kettel, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Y6-WjHadkY&feature=channel_page
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVbdh49Xc8g&feature=channel_page

and helios

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJBdnx70IKk&feature=channel_page

it really depends on if you like chill-out ambient stuff or breakbeat/core, faster stuff.
Either way, Aphex Twin/Richard D. James does both.
There are a million other amazing bands out there, a lot of which have been mentioned.

How the hell has Girl Talk not been mentioned yet? I'd also recommend Thom Yorke's solo album.

UNKLE and Portishead are good if you're coming from mainly a rock background as they tend to have a mix of rock and electronica instrumentation/sound. Thom Yorke sings lead vocals on UNKLE's "Rabbit In Your Headlights" too, so if you're into Radiohead (who've obviously already been mentioned as electronica in their own right) then that's a good place to start.

^ Yeah Portis head is probably the best Trip-Hop group, or at least my favorite. The album Dummy is incredible, and one of my favorite cd's of all time.

Massive Attack, Tricky, Morcheeba, Sub-ID, Eliot Lipp, Leo123, STS9, Bassnectar, Breakbeatbuddha, Vibesquad, Tipper, Mimosa, Heyoka, Infected Mushroom, 1200 Micrograms, Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk, Tiesto, Aphex Twins, ill.gates, Disco Biscuits, Moby, Ronald Jenkees, Sergeant Sawtooth, Shpongle, Astrix, edIT, Zero 7, Thievery Corporation, David Guetta, Guru Josh PRoject, DJ Inphinity, DJ Rozz, Mixin Marc, DJ Magix, Fatboy Slim, Fedde Le Grand, RJD2, Madlib, U.N.K.L.E., Propellerheads, and DJ Shadow are all awesome too.

Try Owl City, it's pretty soothing and the lyrics are weird.
Also Infected Mushroom is great.

Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim, Thievery Corporation and Aphex Twin ftw. I'm not too sure on the boundaries of Electronic though, so if I catagorised them wrong I apologise. Pet Shop Boys are a guilty pleasure >.>

If I were you, listen to KMFDM and Skinny Puppy. They are both really awesome bands. More industrial than electronica, but still.
Check out my Electronica project!

Electronic is about as broad a term as you're going to get

I don't mind me some electronic, though I like to have some other instruments as well rather than just synth.
Goldfrapp is awesome, and the album Felt Mountain.. has an errie vibe to it.

the artist Yppah, download the album They know what Ghost Know. Pretty damn awesome.
Here's one of his songs

Uh... Synth is as broad a term as "wind instrument". It's not even funny how many sounds you can get out of different kinds of synths. (There's analog, digital, FM, wavetable, subtractive, additive, granular, and modular synths, etc. etc... Then there's sine, triangle, square, sawtooth, and pulse waves, and their frequency modulated variants... Filter modulation, phasers, chorus, distortion, etc... And then there's a whole lot more digital signal processing you can do... the possibilities are endless. I wouldn't call it one instrument) Why does it matter if there's "other" instruments or not?

Sorry if I come off a little touchy, I'm defensive about my beloved electronic music
