The idea behind this is to explore other electronica artists/albums that you might not otherwise have come across. All samples have been taken from my most recent albums, most of which are new 2008/2009 with some oldies thrown in there for good measure.

What was originally an MP3 (which caused the thread to be shut down first time around) has now been turned into a video, each sample now corresponds to artists album cover and is split between 2 videos due to Youtubes 10 minute limitation.

• Please feel free to question a particular sample, I'll be able to tell you who they are if the album doesn't give it away.
• And please please suggest more electronica too me and others reading this thread, I find new artists daily so I'm sure theres something I haven't heard of.

I knew the man wouldn't keep cism down! I'm probably going to check out Pendulum. That sounded on tip. Crystal Castles s/t was a great album, I listened to it last week after a while and thought how their sound is unique enough to stand out.

Have to love Minitel Rose. The French Machine is an awesome album. If you haven't, I'd check out other Valerie artists like Futurcop! and DatA

When this type of dance music is discussed, why is Client never mentioned? They have been lumped in with electroclash, but they were always a little too synthpop'y for that. S/T and City, were especially good by then. As an aside, I dug the the retro, fetishistic stewardess uniforms they paraded in. It worked well in in the vernacular, which include straight faced songs about rock n roll with nary a guitar in sight.

I haven't seen anything from Underworld in the last 2 years Signal2Noise, I do like them a lot though.

virometal; What is cism? Pendulum is D&B, lots of good bass beats. I love Crystal Castles which would explain why I used them 4 or 5 times in this mix, so many unique sounding songs from them.
I have Anoraak (Nightdrive With You) and College (Secret Diary) which are just as good, I'll have to checkout Futurcop and DatA.

selkin; Yeah not everyones cup of tea... is that a yes for trentmoller and a no for empire of the sun? ... pendulum is alright, do you have any recommendations?

Thanks for all the recommendations slytown, I'll have fun going through those, hopefully there all available to preview on amazon.

Calexico; Cheers I'll checkout Ratatat, got any electropop suggestions?

Ratatat, pretty good.

All the people I mentioned have myspace pages. Hexes and Ohs and Neon Indian are electropop. Also might want to check out The Blow, Lemon Jelly, and The Bad Spellers.

Former Ghosts is a love it or hate it kind of act. Put me in the former. Take Hold On with it's shrill synth line broken by empty space voc's. I thought Fleurs was one of the better albums last year. It had that otherworldly synth pop vibe, that The Knife kind of refreshed with Silent Shout. Maybe some one will like it as much as I do; kind of doubt it.
