    Welcome to the 'Official Electronic Music Topic', this is the place to discuss Electronic Music with other fans. Discussion can vary to many genres of Electronic music like; italo disco, techno, house, trance, electro, breakbeat, jungle, drum and bass, Gabber and styles that are intended more as experimental styles or for home listening such as IDM, glitch, Breakcore, trip-hop and more.

    Remember; no spam and chat nicely amongst each other.

    I would suggest you get some Daft Punk which is more Funky House than Techno.

    Daft Punk:

    Harder, Better, Faster, stronger.
    Aerodynamic
    Daftendirekt
    Human After All
    Robot Rock

    These are all generally good party tracks.

    If you want some you can try some Vitalic. Vitalic, like Daft Punk is French and is more Electro-House but he's quite good.

    Vitalic:

    Dance Like a Machine
    Le Rock
    Repair Machines

    Or you can try Infected Mushroom. They are a mix of of Psytrance and all sorts.

    Infected Mushroom:

    Streched
    I'm the Supervisor
    Frog Machine

    Well, I hope you try them out and enjoy them even if your not into that music.

    I'm on something of an Electronic binge right now myself.

    In addition to the more popular stuff I like that most have heard of (Prodigy, Crystal Method, Chemical Bros, etc) I've also come to enjoy the following over the past couple weeks...

    -Astral Projection
    -Future Sound of London
    -Propellerheads
    -Shpongle
    -Tangerine Dream

    The bands in the first post are some of the worst examples of electronic music imo.
    Decent idea to unite the electronic genres into one thread though, there aren't enough fans of the individual subgenres to sustain discussion for more than a few posts.

    Some IDM recommendations:

    Boards of Canada
    Tycho
    Proem
    Kettel
    Ochre
    Freescha
    Cylob
    Saturday Index
    Frequent C
    Loafeye
    Milieu
    Wisp

    Daft Punk is kind of interesting. I thought the first 1/3 or so of Discovery was really fucking cool, and catchy in a way I'd never really heard before, but most of the album is pretty boring, and Homework seemed to me to be entirely boring. I think if they got it right they could come out with something truly memorable.

    I'm still very new to electronica, but there's one group I discovered recently that doesn't seem much discussed, and which everyone should definitely hear: Holy Fuck. They're basically a jam band with two drummers and a lot of weird-ass '80s gadgets that give the music a kind of arcade game like tone. And they are fucking incredible. I've only heard the album LP in its entirety, but I really want to get the s/t. Truly unique and ass-kicking music.

    They just sound like a poor man's Cylob to me.

    It just seems that anything associated with Warp Records gets this massive jizz parade in their honour, when half of if it is already being done far better by several other bands. I'm not saying Warp Records are bad, hell they released some fantastic stuff, but they and any associated bands have achieved this ridiculous untouchable status and it pisses me off.

    I wouldn't really consider Holy Fuck electronica, it's just alternative rock/pop with bleeps. It's kinda like calling Idiot Pilot or Of Montreal electronica.

    Fair enough. They still fucking rule, though. If you could recommend any artists like them I'd very much be interested. I've never heard anything remotely like them before.

    Were those recs for Vihris? They don't sound anything like Holy Fuck!

    If not, carry on, a few super bands in there.

    Like the work of Vitalic and Daft Punk but can't really get into the minimalistic trance stuff.
    This is my kind of electro.
