I wasn't even born when they released most of their stuff I always listen to older music more than new music. Also, nothing beats the YMO videos.

Faithless -- very very creative and every album has a nice blend. 808state -- they can be hit-or-miss, but ex:el, gorgeous, and outpost transmission all have blazing tracks on them. Of course one must mention Pacific. edit: Let me add the original LFO (Low Frequency Oscilation sp?). Mark Bell and Das Farley (?). Their first two albums were stunning. I still remember picking up their cd-single for We Are Back in college in 91 or something. My fav DJ: Jon Carter (Monkey Mafia) -- I'm not as sure what he's up to these days, but in his Monkey Mafia days he was brilliant. His Live at the Social (vol 2) is beyond compare. bob

dont know shit about electronica but my former swedish ex really dug it and one group I remember liking was Milk Inc.....and I even went to see Sven Vaith when he was in LA.

otherwise there are one or two songs from Le Tigre and Ladytron that I can get into....if that's considered electronica.

Armin van Buuren - I download his weekly two hour radio show ("A State of Trance"), and that's my trance for the week.

Amon Tobin
Plaid
Boards of Canada
Squarepusher

Autechre (before they became pretentious cunts)
Chris Clark
Venetian Snares
Chemical Bros
Ed Rush & Optical
Klute
Arovane
Jackson and his computer band
Ulrich Schnauss
Exile
Luke Vibert
Jega
Stefan Anion
Andre Absolut

But it all comes back to Aphex anyway.

Good stuff, nice flowing IDM. Edit 2: Recent stuff I have listened to on Pandora/Last.FM http://www.last.fm/user/skalogre/cha...e=recenttracks Edit 3: Listening to "Nadia" by Nitin Sawhney right now on Pandora. Nice d&b - not tech step, not jump-up - just nice flowing beats with nice vocals in (afaik) some dialect from the Indian subcontinent.

Really intesting array of choices here; great thread Versace.

I'll give some of my favorites later (probably not), but I'm wondering: does anyone else here create EM? I've been spinning records since I was 12 years old, which led to ambient work which I've integrated into my "band" music (which has led to me getting an EP deal). My set-up is a pure Elektron set-up. I used to collect old Roland's and I had an Alesis Micron and whatnot, but I discovered this is a fun venture only if you have money. Now I have a few top o' the line pieces that do everything I could ever imagine doing.

Aphex Twin: Selected Ambient Works 85-92 is not only my favorite electronic album of all-time, but it's tied with Pet Sounds as my favorite album ever. Had a lot of great, lonely moments with RDJ's masterpiece.

Recommend everyone check out my friend Nakamura Motomichi (motomichi.com). He's a mixed-media artist who has an incredible talent for mixing audible and visual. His own stuff is incredibly unique and progressive but I think some of his best work yet has been The Knife's Silent Shout video. He also made a flash game for the video which you can play on The Knife's UK site.

I'm pretty obsessed with electronic music (unfortunately) to the point I'll often listen to an above-average EM album over a very good indie rock album, or the like. What are you gonna' do? I'll post more choices later (will be a massive list).
