RE: Your favourite electronica albums?

Hi Fr0g

I don't post very often, but I could not resist this one as I am a bit of a fan of electronic music.

Albums that are the corner stone of why I like electronic music and are go to for me

1. Kraftwerk The Man Machine

2. Tangerine Dream Tangram

3. The Human League Travelogue

4. Ryuichi Sakamoto B-2 unit

5. Vangelis China

6. Ultravox Vienna

7. Bill Nelson A Love that Whirls

8. Jean Michel Jarre Magnetic Fields

9. Klaus Schulze Digit

10. Edgar Froese Kamikaze 1989

I have more recently been listening to these artists who have rekindled my electronic listening over the last 3 years

Stars of the lid, A winged victory for the sullen, Bloodgroup, Royksopp, Wolfsheim, Iamamiwhoami, Solarfields, Chicane, Ulrich Schnauss, Chvrches.

Have to say I love the stuff and have a mountain of CD's from all of these artists and a few others.

If you like Stars of the Lid and haven't already listened to it, try "Dead Texan - Dead Texan". It's a really excellent album, and would be on my list apart from the fact I limited myself to 10, even though I forgot that in the thread title.

 

Some more excellent stuff which I must add...

 

Rykard - Arrive the Radio Beacon

Tycho - Past is Prologue

Orbital - In Sides

Sync 24 -Ambient Archive

Vibrasphere - Lungs of Life

Young American Primitive - Young American Primitive

Solar Fields - Until we meet the sky

AES Dana - Pollen

HUVA Network - Ephermeris

Marconi Union - Under Wires and Searchlights

Biosphere - Substrata  (One of the best ambient albums made IMO)

Jon Hopkins - Contact Note

port royal - dying in time

Ulrich Shnauss - Far away trains passing by

 

more to come Smile 

By the way I try to limit myself to one album per artist, but usually like most of each's output Smile

In Sides is definitely Orbital's best, although I would have chosen 'Cirque' by Biosphere.

 

I love this thread!
