RE: Your favourite electronica albums?

Hi,

Yes I am well into the Dead Texan, thanks, have you tried Christina Vantzou? She is Adam Wiltzie's girlfriend apparently, her album No 1 is cool. There are 2 other side projects Sleepingdog and Aix Em Klemm both available from Amazon, where Wiltzie collaborated with members of Labradford.

Thanks for the list of artists I am going to listen to all suggested on this thread, think there is plenty to discover.

To try Bloodgroup, and Icelandic band, go to allscandinavian.com there is all types of music on there, but that is where I found Blood group and they are reminiscent of early Human League/Depeche Mode et al.

 

Happy listening!!

RE: Your favourite electronica albums?

I have just been revisiting some albums by Scanner, a truly great electronic musician and artist - namely 'Spore', 'Lauwarm Instrumentals' and my favourite, 'Sound For Spaces'. Just purchased 'Electronic Garden' and 'Rockets, Unto The Edges Of Edges', two of his albums from the last few years. Will report back in due course.

 

For fans of Basic Channel/Dub Techno, have a look for the new Yagya & DeepChord release, 'Will I Dream During The Process (DeepChord Redesigns)'. Sublime.

Picked up Autechre's 5 cd boxset of all their EPs ('91-02) for £7 in HMV today, absolute bargain. Had a few of the EPs already but even for the £22 price on amazon this would be worth it for the ones I didn't. Loving Envane

RE: Your favourite electronica albums?

I'm not very good at id ing genres. 

 

Im im listening to Mortiis - Some Kind of Heroin. More the industrial edge I suppose. But listen to the Emotional Heresy remix of The Grudge and that sounds pretty electronic to me. 

Another band I saw recently (again, not sure if they count). FEATHERS- If All Now Here

 

The Depeche Mode Remix albums are pretty hard to beat. & Construction Time Again

He's definitely someone I want to hear more of. I have a Scanner remix of a track by Scorn, and it's absolutely awesome, scary as, but quite fascinating.
