Electronic Music

I am relatively new to this genre of music.... I could use a few pointers in what people consider Good or Great Electronic Music.... I have discovered some of the following and like then a lot. I especially like the stuff that is good for a good "Roll" if you catch my hint....

Paul Van Dyke
Juno Reactor

And I REALLY REALLY like the band Shpongle... learned of them Here! thanks in advance...

Did you get rid of all the voices in your head?
Do you now miss them and the things they said?

If you want an excellent Juno Reactor song, check out Navras. Its by Don Davis and Juno Reactor.
Through counter-intelligence, it should be possible to pinpoint potential trouble makers, and neutralize them.

good stuff on the ninja tune label
including amon tobin, herbaliser, bonobo, diplo

i also like boom bip, royksopp, m83, zero 7, tipsy, dj food, and older stuff like chemical bros and daft punk. perhaps this music is more laid back than what you are after...it's not too much like PVD and i can't attest to rollability

Paul Oakenfold puts out some really good stuff.

The album "Perdition City" by Ulver is also excellent. However, (with the exclusion of Themes from William Blake's Marriage of Heaven and Hell), this is -- I believe -- their only true electronic CD. The rest vary from black metal to folk to trip hop. A vertsatile group of musicians, to say the least.

I'm not much of a "four on the floor" dance music type guy anymore. I do still do some PvD at times. I'm a full blown IDM-aholic now. You should really look into anyone on Warp Records, Ninja Tune, Planet Records, and Mute Records.

jonjon42: Is the new Lemon Jelly album any good?

Daft Punk's "Human After All" does sound like the same old Daft Punk, but that's not such a bad thing.

I, too, am more of a downtempo/ambient breakbeat/trip-hop/whatever-the-hell-they're-calling-it kind of guy. I recommend anything by DJ Shadow because he's a truly masterful producer (comparisons to RJD2 really irritate me). His recently released "In Tune and On Time" CD/DVD is an amazing mix of his own body of work performed in London a few years ago. And as other have mentioned, Ninja Tune is a label with many great artists on the "jazzy" side of low BPM electronic music.

i am interested in older-school tape and analog synth music for the most part--in digital forms, i prefer more granular synthesis-type stuff.

for tape music/analog synth music:
elaine radigue
james tenney
pauline olilveros
pierre henry
bernard parmegiani
early steve reich pieces

newer tape music
aki onda
boston sound collective
lots of stuff in the "processed field recordings" area like chris watson or alan lamb

granular-type electronics
fennesz (his stuff is a bit romantic at times, but i like the attention to surface detail in his mixes)
kim cascone
janek schaeffer

other folk doing related stuff who i like:
philip jeck
jacob kirkegaard
a gramophone its corrugated trumpet silver handle
spinning dog. such faithfulness it hear

it make you sick.

"electronic" is such a broad umbrella term that includes a whole lot of subtypes. As for me, I prefer deep house. http://www.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein...e=playlist.pls

hmm i guess it depends on what you mean by electronic.

my personal favorites are triphop and electropop.

based on the groups/people you have listed you're more into 'epic' trance or pop-trance. BT is a good one for that. he does some excellent things and you hear a lot of his style being copied. (stutter edits, etc)
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

as has been stated, the statement "electronic music" is about as specific as saying "music with guitars" ... so, I'm going to direct you over to Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music. Spend some time there, listen through the various samples, and see what you like =) -- http://www.ishkur.com/music/

judging from the two artists you mentioned... PvD makes trance, usually in the realm of epic. Alot of people consider him a hack, because his music isn't always the most deep, nor innovative (anymore, at least.. when he started several years ago, he broke ground)... not that most electronic music is all that deep. On the flip, the other artist you mentoned, Juno Reactor, is, imho, really awesome quality electronic music. Even those who don't like trance, can't deny that JR is extremely inovative music.
So, based Juno Reactor, I'll suggest:
Eat Static
Hallucinogen / Younger Brother / Shpongle (same guy, different style/production names)

and maybe give a listen to the www.philosomatika.com radio station. this is psytrance.

Donald Glaude is awesome. One of my favorites. I also like DJ Venom, DJ Irene, DJ Alligator, DJ Micro, Paul Oakenfold. The list goes on. I've been listening to techno/electronic (happy hardcore, hardcore, house, hard house, jungle, trance) for 11 years now. Some of my favorite music...

Not to change the subject or go off-topic: I would hope that your involvement in "rolling" is for educated research purposes. If you are participating, I would hope you understand the ramifications. *getting off of her experienced soapbox*

There are so many genres and sub-genres in electronic so it can be a bit overwhelming sometimes. I'm a big DnB head but I also listen to jungle, proggresive house, deep house, breakbeats, and some dark trance. I'll list a few of my favorite artists:

Dj Dara
Dj Rap
Dj Icey
Dj Hype
Freaky Flow
Dj Dan
Crystal Method
Bad Boy Bill
Baby Anne
Dj Irene (hard hard house)
Dave Aude
Carl Cox
Adam F

there are alot more but you get the idea. Happy Listening

If you appreciate Shpongle, you should definitely check out other stuff by Simon Posford also, since he's produced lots of music under different aliases. He's done some faster stuff as Hallucinogen which is amazing, but if you like the laid back style more I think his best work is the album "Celtic Cross - Hicksville". More recently he's collaborated with another talented producer Benji Vaughan forming Younger Brother. You might wanna check out their album "A Flock of Bleeps". Very good ambient with some faster tracks as well.

There are a few albums out there that sound a lot of Shpongle but are by no means pure copies. Check out the artists Shulman and Entheogenic, who have both done two albums which are very nice and atmospheric.

From the non-psychedelic range of electronic music I think everybody should at least check out the following artists: Future Sound of London (especially the "Dead Cities" album), Boards of Canada (anything by them) and Autechre (check out their older stuff first). Orbital is another highly acclaimed group but the only album from them I truly enjoy is In-Sides, which is great.

So there's some stuff I think is worth checking out, hope you like at least some of them. I found these groups over a period of many years so they might be a bit too much to try to get into all at once, but take it slowly and give the music some time. Don't expect everything to sound great right away. Read some reviews to find out what's the best stuff to get started with.

Hey, for a good variety and to see what you like the best. Get ITunes from Apple. There is a cool radio section that has a great selection of live radio stuff. Nice thing is, it usually tells the artist and song name when the song is playing. Found a couple artists I like from there.

as far as online radio stations go I like Drum & Bass Arena the best.. it's located at www.breakbeat.co.uk drum and bass is an aquired taste though. It seems like you're more into the trance side of things.. but give DnB a chance

i used to listen to lots of techno/trance when i used to do alot of ecstacy.
but since i've stopped doing drugs that genre of music just isnt the same anymore and i'm not into the new stuff thats out now.

when i first started listening to to electronic music i used to listen to just beats, but now i prefer songs with lyrics, and it has to be trance.

i like alot of stuff by Dj Greddy. you can find his stuff using programs like limewire/kazaa. he's a local dj that put out a few albums, nothing major but he's got a lot of fans in the south east.
