So, I can't say I've seen a good electronic music appreciation thread, and I think it's time that was changed.

Now, I'm sure this thread will get a lot of stick from the Metalhead crowd (Who cares about Metalheads these days?), I'm sure we'll get the usual "Aphex Twin/Moby/Simon Posford doesn't play an instrument, he's not a real musician!" comments, which are very ignorant.

1) Bach, Mozart, Holst, Penderecki, none played their music, they simply composed it, one of the main things done by Jean Michel Jarre, Aphex Twin, Moby

2)Keyboards, CDJs

So, now, we're not bigots here (Not as far as I'm aware, anyway), so all is welcome.
Give me your Psytrance, bring me your Jungle, show me your Ambient, your New Age, your Forest, your Industrial, the progressive and perhaps even the hip-hop.

Here's a few of my favourite tracks:

Ambient - Carbon Based Lifeforms - Frog

Psybient - Shpongle - Star Shpongled Banner


Progressive Ambient.New Age(?) - Jean Michel Jarre - Oxygene (Full)


Now, go, give me your electronic delicacies!

Because there certainly aren't several electronic threads over in the "Other" subforum of B&A.

I love it. I also think a lot of people forget that electronic music extends way beyond just dance music.

ITT: People only post ludicrously experimental/ambient music because saying "Yeah, Electro House is banging" would be insta-flaming

EDIT: Ben Rah did okay with Burial and Flying Lotus.

Okay, here's some











I think that's enough embedded stuff for one thread, but also:
Burial, Swarms and Phaeleh for chilled out dubstep
Alva Noto - idm
BT - you should know him but he does a bit of everything
Halou - more triphop
SONOIO, Late of the Pier, Art vs Science, Ou Est Le Swimming Pool, Robots in Disguise - electronic/rock crossover stuff
Infected Mushroom, Astrix, Fatali - psytrance

EDIT: ninja'd on a couple of those, but that's fine.

Tangerine Dream isn't ludicrously experimental. Go listen to Stockhausen or Alvin Lucier.

Bach was more renowned in his own time as a keyboard virtuoso than a composer. You picked a bad way to make your point.

I'm a DJ and an electronic producer. Hell I prefer electronic music to rock and metal now. It's definitely an incredibly important genre of music for the world.


Yeah I used to only listen to classic rock and older metal, until I found Shpongle, which led me to discovering hundreds of amazing, diverse electronic artist.

I still listen to plenty of New Wave/punk (Costello, Pasti, Smiths, Joy Division etc) but electronic, especially ambient/chill (Like the song linked) is very important to me.

Aphex Twin, Boards Of Canada and Autechre are the holy trinity of IDM, despite how ill the name actually is.
