Twlichty Releases Free Ep!

During the last four months, I have been super busy producing my debut EP from my new electronic project Depth Connection. The EP is titled "Different Waves" and is a collage of electronic influences (found mostly from using this site) with live guitar parts recorded over-top. I hope you all will enjoy the FREE download on my bandcamp page here: http://depthconnection.bandcamp.com/ This list is my top 35 electronic albums that have led me to make the music I make today, thanks for listening!
35Depth Connection
Different Waves


My EP, Free Download: http://depthconnection.bandcamp.com/
34Above & Beyond
Tri State


One of the most beautiful trance albums I have heard. Also one of the few trance artists that put on an absolutely stunning live show.
33Air
Moon Safari


Considered by many as one of the best trip-hop albums ever, Moon Safari takes its listeners on a trippy and soothing journey of chillness.
32Amon Tobin
ISAM


Not many producers can reach the level of intricacy and depth that Amon Tobin can, and he has really created an unheard of world with ISAM.
31Andy Stott
Luxury Problems


Dark, spooky, deep and brilliant.
30Atu
Pictures on Silence


One of 2013's hidden gems, Pictures on Silence is a sensual mix of deep bass music and lush hip hop beats perfect for any smoky afternoon.
29Bonobo
The North Borders


Bonobo is one of the most talented and diverse modern electronic producers, and he shows no sign of slowing down with the release of The North Borders. Bonobo is now touring the world extensively with a full live band, further solidifying his place as one of electronic music's most desired live acts.
28Boxcutter
Oneiric


Dense electronic music that's nearly impossible to pin down into any sort of genre tags and frankly, it doesn't need to be. This is Boxcutter's magnum opus and an essential listen for any producer looking to better their production skills.
27Burial
Kindred


There isn't much to be said about Burial that hasn't been said before, but this happens to be my favorite piece of work from the elusive producer. The long tracks suit him wonderfully, and really allow him the time he needs to morph each song into an otherworldy soundscape. Each song paints a dark and haunting picture of a city in ruins, with an occasional ray of hope peaking through the rubble.
26Clive Tanaka y Su Orquesta
Jet Set Siempre No. 1


One of the most enjoyable electronic albums in recent memory, Jet Set Siempre No.1 is a two part album split between Side A [For Dance] and Side B [For Romance]. Side A provides the listener with smile inducing dance beats with tropical vibes and goofy vocoder vocals. Side B dives more into spacious and flowing downtempo beats to enjoy with your lover. The thing I really love about this record is the seamless blend between live instrumentation and electronic beats, something I'm really shooting for in my music. I HIGHLY recommend this record.
25Clubroot
III - MMXII


Some may argue that Clubroot is the best deep bass producer in the game right now, and it'd be quite hard to combat that opinion. Dan Richmond's production techniques are second to none and every clap, bass wobble and high frequency synth pad occupy a perfect spot in the mix.
24Daft Punk
Discovery


I think Daft Punk has made it pretty clear with the release of RAM that their best days are behind them and Discovery remains the defining high point in their career. Of course the duo still displays a tremendous amount of skill on their newest release but no other album gets the dance floor jumping quite like this one does.
23Desolate
The Invisible Insurrection


One of the most underrated modern producers, Desolate never fails to create tracks filled with loneliness, longing and grief. It's rare to find so much emotion packed into an electronic record.
22Emancipator
Safe in the Steep Cliffs


Eman's best album and a must listen for any fan of chilled out trip-hop.
21Evol Intent
Era of Diversion


A massive drum & bass album that floors it's listeners and provides just enough well placed vocal samples to keep minds engaged.
20Washed Out
Life of Leisure


I really enjoy chillwave music and this is definitely one of the most enjoyable albums that I have discovered within the genre.
19Flying Lotus
Cosmogramma


When talking about incredible producers, it'd be a sin to leave out Steven Elliot. FlyLo's sound has inspired an entire young generation of producers who are bewildered by how he creates his trippy sounds and dense textures. Cosmogramma is sometimes too much to take in for some listeners, but for those who are studying the facets of production and sound design, it's a fascinating listen.
18Ital Tek
Midnight Colour


Spacey.....
17Intriket
The Woods


Josh Frazer is one of the most promising new producers and he is fully immersed in the deep and dark dubstep scene. He has recently started a record label called Midnight City Records which is pushing some of the grooviest dubstep around. He has also been really supportive of my project and I hope to release my next EP through Midnight City Records.
16Justice
Cross


Cross didn't really make sense to me until I saw Justice live. The theatrics and evolving stage set up was a perfect backdrop to the dance beats Justice was throwing down. Cross is now one of my favorite dance albums and Justice's live show remains the best concert I have ever been to.
15Lone
Emerald Fantasy Tracks


Matt Cutler has always been a producer that offers his listeners unique and whirling beats filled with nostalgia and flashbacks. No producer makes beats quite like Lone which makes his completely original sound a rare thing to find in the electronic world.
14Massive Attack
Mezzanine


What "best electronic albums" list would be complete without Mezzanine? MEZZ CREW 4 LYFE!!
13Mistabishi
Drop


Dirty and hard hitting dubstep (brostep as some want to call it) usually gets a bad rep on this site (especially from the sputnik gods) but those who write off the style as childish and repetitive might want to give Mistabishi's Drop a thorough listen. It's a nice blend of mellow trancy electro beats with heavy drops and dirty bass swells.
12Phaeleh
Fallen Light


Amazing dubstep record to chill out to. Very diverse also.
11Naibu
Fall


Another 2013 gem and probably the best Drum and Bass release this year. Fall showcases some of the most obscure yet welcomed production techniques in a Drum and Bass album, at least that I've heard.
10Noisia
Split the Atom


I actually was fortunate enough to see Noisia live this year at Electric Forest Music Festival and the just blew my mind. I've always been a big fan of them but to see them live is a whole other animal.
9Ott
Skylon


Really nice dub-electro-psychedelic record. Queen of All Everything remains one of the most relaxing songs I've ever heard.
8Roman Flugel
Fatty Folders


Excellent deep house record that keeps the heads bobbing. How to Spread Lies is probably the highlight track here and slowly transforms into one of the catchiest synth lines ever.
7Sorrow (UK)
Dreamstone


Finally, Sorrow releases the full length album we've all been waiting for and damn is it everything we could have wanted and more. Sorrow delivers more of the bass heavy atmospheric tracks we've come to expect from the phenomenal producer, and he even throws in some curve balls to mix things up.
6Submotion Orchestra
Finest Hour


Submotion Orchestra has done what few other musicians could dream of doing, blending several different genre's of music that just a few years ago no one would imagine would mix as well as it does. Lounge, Jazz and Dub are beautifully intertwined with live instrumentation and one of the best female vocalist in any genre of music belting it out over-top.
5Swarms
Old Raves End


The use of guitars and a post-rock influence on this album has inspired me in an immeasurable way and this vinyl is still in constant rotation for me. The atmospheres in this record are so thick and crisp that you feel as if you're floating though the songs.
4Sweatson Klank
You, Me, Temporary


More smooth and deep hip hop beats from 2013. This one will definitely be high on my best of 2013 list and a must listen for anyone into chill beats.
3Thievery Corporation
The Mirror Conspiracy


Not many albums have a replay value like The Mirror Conspiracy and over a decade later, the album still offers up some of the most delicious down-tempo and dub influenced beats. The album really feels like a trip around the world due to its different cultural sounds and textures.
2Tycho
Dive


The title explains this album quite well as the entire listen feels like diving into cool refreshing ocean water. Waves of keyboards with heavy delay and reverb effects crash into a coast line of live drums, guitar and bass. Tycho's live set is not something to miss and offers a backdrop of synchronized videos that are made by Tycho himself.
1Trentemoller
The Last Resort


Incredible production techniques in every song make this an essential listen in electronic music. Nothing is overbearing or out of place and the mixdown is spot on.
