    Don't forget Animal Magic. I was considering putting Bonobo in my list (because he's awesome) but it doesn't "sound" like electronic music so I thought I'd start with the ones that do. Although Lemon Jelly is similar... hmm...

    IDM is also known as glitch or braindance (coined by Richard D James), which I think is more appropriate. I don't think any IDM is meant to ACTUALLY be dancable... with your body that is.

    Murcof - Martes is probably my favorite electronic album. A shame that it never seems to be mentioned.
     
  5. skellington
    Mosaik has an album, Apologies which I can heartily recommend.
    Best of all you can download it for free;
    http://www.kahvi.org/139.php
    If you don't want to listen to the whole album I'd say check out the songs 'clover' or 'locus fruit'.
     
  6. DJShadow
    AFX (aka Aphex Twin) - Hangable Auto Bulb, Chosen Lords
    Amon Tobin - Get everything
    Coldcut - Journeys By DJ: 70 minutes of madness
    The Knife - Silent Shout
    Ninja Tune (Various Artists) - Xen Cuts
    Prefuse 73 - One Word Extinguisher, Vocal Studies + Uprock Narratives

    I too prefer not to use the term IDM as it implies all other kinds of electronic music isn't intelligent, even if I do think that the more mainstream branches are less than inspiring. I also would rather use the umbrella term electronic music than electronica. IDM was coined as being dance music for the mind.

    If you like BT you'll probably like one of the Thrillseekers mix CDs- very lush and melodic.

    I dislike electronica and IDM as terms too, pompous sounding.

    Only 1 song on that CD is psytrance...the title track. The rest of it isnt psytrance...doesnt have nearly the depth of their older stuff...kinda has that generic sound to it. Now if youre talking about the REAL Infected Mushroom, you have to dig back to 2003 and older, thats when they were awesome.

    OK, thanks for the explanation. But I remember back in the mid 90's at raves people where indeed dancing to the likes of Autechre, Aphex Twin, Oblivion, Crystal Method etc.

    Heh, well I guess the Windowlicker video proves that it is indeed possible. [​IMG]

    And The Crystal Method are VERY far from IDM. More Dance/Big-Beat.

    Did I get you into the BT... I think I brought that CD up on here after it came out?

    Anyways... some of my suggestions in no order:

    Boards of Canada
    Four Tet (can't go wrong)
    Aphex Twin
    Brian Eno (ambient)
    Lemon Jelly (upbeat and poppy... really great stuff)
    Mum
    Squarepusher (I think they are overrated, but worth a listen)
    Stars of the Lid (INCREDIBLE ambience)

    Oh yeah... I think you did with a thread called sometihng like 'Just amazing music...' or something... Sad thing is, I haven't even bough This Binary Universe on CD yet, and only listened to the free sample of 1.618...

    It's a REALLY hard to find CD here. I went to the Borders shop and ordered it in. Then I waited 3 months for them to contact me and tell me that they had it!!! When they DID contact me, they said that they couldn't get it because it wasn't available or some lame thing... AFTER 3 MONTHS!!!!

    I really must get that CD from somewhere else...



    Oh and I did get a Brian Eno CD out from the library. It was called Another Day on Earth and it WAS NOT ambient. It was kinda pop... Nothing like what I expected.... Are all Brian Eno's cd's like this?

    Soz for teh triple post.

    I just bought Four Tet - Everything Ecstatic, mainly because it was the only mentioned album the shop had (they had a squarepusher CD, but it was $36!!!).

    I haven't listened to it yet, but i will do soon and update on what i think of it.
