    Any interest in this? I've been getting into some fun electronic music recently, and I'm sure there are a few others out here. I'm not into the club scene so the techno/trance/house stuff doesn't appeal to me but that doesn't change the fact that there is a ridiculous amount of amateur and semi-professional innovation going on this genre. For instance, Dubstep seems to be the hot thing right now. I wouldn't call it club music at all. I've been getting into more and more of it and while it seems like a lot of the possibilities with the sub-genre have already been exploited, it's impossible to say where some kid with a computer will go next.

    Some dubstep tracks I have been feeling:





    Aside from that, I'm fairly well versed in the downbeat/trip hop stuff too, but that style seems to have fallen by the wayside.

    Any contributions?

    Electronica/Techno music has always been a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine, but I will agree with you on hating club/dance music. What I've been really getting into lately is a subgenre called Jamtronica which is basically Jam Band type music that has a healthy dose of electronica mixed in. Some notable bands that fit into this subgenre are The Disco Biscuits, Sound Tribe Sector 9, The New Deal and Lotus, among others I know I'm forgetting.

    I'm at work right now and youtube is blocked here, but when I get home I'll see if I can find some of my favorite examples and post 'em up.

    I love electro and dub.

    Saw deadmau5/benny benassi in july and am about to see deadmau5 again. Mt.Eden is really good too, props to whoever posted that.

    These are my go-to dubstep tracks. Unfortunately the genre seems infected by FL kiddies with no inspiration.

    This is hands down my favourite dance song of all time, WAAAAY better than the original mix. It's unbelievably loud and enormous on a full system, I always relish a chance to play it for the right crowd.:


    This song has the most sinister beat I've ever heard. :

    Not sure if it qualifies, but one of my all-time favourite CD's is this:

    [​IMG]

    Basically, Jimi Hendrix made all of his work freely available, and this group took his stuff and mixed the hell out of it. It's an awesome mix of the classic Hendrix vocals and guitar over a killer electronic base.

    Here's one of the more mellow tunes.



    I also worked at Nettwerk Records for years (hence the Nettdata moniker), so have the entire Nettwerk library.

    I'm more partial to industrial electronic tunes, and one artist I really wish stuck with it was Mark Griffin. You probably know him as MC 900 Ft. Jesus.



    And Consolidated:



    So yeah, maybe not classifiable as dance/trance/dubstep/whatever, but still electronic in my opinion.

    And as far as I'm concerned, the whole electronic music classification thing is out of control.

    If you like the more ambient side of electronic music, but still like some mental beats (Aphex Twin / Squarepusher style) then check out Wisp.
    Honor Beats and Building Dragons are a couple of albums worth grabbing, but most of what he's done is pretty solid


    For the more jazz inclined:


    I challenge you to listen to this and not be ready to rave your tits off by the end of it

    Most annoying thing about electronic music these days is the rarity of good albums. It seems like all the good stuff is tucked away on EPs and random little collections. Then again, I've always had trouble listening to full length electronic albums as they all seem to get a bit repetitive. It seems like a lot of these guys are one-trick ponies. That's why I especially respect guys like Bassnectar or Moderat. They can make albums that pick and choose from a variety of styles and do a pretty damn good job with all of them. I think that is the key to any good album. Even though I like dubstep a lot I think I've only ever downloaded one full album (Rusko's OMG) but even that I ended up deleting all but 4-5 songs just because it seems like he's good at dubstep but is pretty mediocre at anything else.

    Thoughts?

    I occasionally like to dabble in electronica from a wide range of sub-genres. But I've always had a soft spot for Aphex Twin (if such a thing is possible):

    Full version of Windowlicker (link spells it wrong). Song starts at 4.20 but the whole thing is worth a watch.



    Come to Daddy. Evil.



    Nannou. It may be coming down music, but I think this is brilliant. Played completely on children's toys.

    Regurgitator. They're a bit bizarre, but their stuff is catchy.

    These don't really fit dub step but I think it's cool electronic none-the-less.

    If there's one sub-genre I miss, it's the soothing beats of Trip-Hop. A music that you truly just kick back and LISTEN TO.

    Forgot about this thread. I recently listened to Downlink's Ignition EP. Highly recommend if you like or want to get into dubstep. The whole tape is killer.

    Sample:
