Why I Love Electronic Music (so Far)

Bored in my bedroom, so here it is: 65 electronics albums that have had quite an impact on me. List is very very very loosely ranked and made. Bear in mind that I was a newbie only months ago. Have still lots and lots to learn. I expect a whole new bunch of favorites for me in the next few years. Electronic music has changed my life and visiting Sputnik has helped me cultivate it. Most of these are obvious and deviantly confirmed albums you probably already know (thank you Deviant...I'm still waiting for DnB recs). But there's everything on here: synthpop, drum & bass, house, dubstep, IDM, techno, you name it... Making for a much eclectic & personal list I hope/I guess. So Why Do I Love Electronic Music? And as always, recs are welcome!
65Deadmau5
4x4=12


I hold a soft spot for it, since it was one of the first house albums I truly enjoyed. Fresh, young-spirited, somewhat inventive, several floor-fillers.
64Amon Tobin
Supermodified


Amon Tobin is a crafter. You taste his drums like exquisite food. A labyrinth of rhythms. Complex work.
63Dom and Roland
The Big Bang


Dom, Inventor of the Tramen Break. The Big Bang happens in my ears! This is why I love DnB: It is restless.
62VNV Nation
Empires


EBM is not house, nor trance, nor techno. Well what is it then? A little bit of each. Inspiration: Victory Not Vengeance. Yes. Listen to "Saviour" for a tremendous end- of-the-world dance masterpiece.
61Infected Mushroom
Vicious Delicious


Psytrance. Bleeps, bloops, glorgs, glurgs, pzzzziii, pzzzuuu. One of my first electronic albums. Nostalgia.
60Distance
My Demons


Shadows everywhere! Dubstep full of curious echoes... and monstrous bass.
59Noisia
Split The Atom


Title track goes like this: teh-teh-teh-teh... teh-teh-teh-teh... tah-tah-tah-tah... teh-teh-teh-teh.
58Crystal Castles
Crystal Castles II


Dance & melancholy. I saw them live once. I went Total-Nuts during "Baptism".
57Neuroticfish
Les Chansons Neurotiques


Futurepop cool as hell, meant to be played loud under neon-lights.
56State Of Mind
Take Control


DnB you can both dance & daydream to. "Sunking" calls for you! Let's do this! Now!
55Clubroot
Clubroot


O delicate O sweet O vast, "O Me O Life, of the questions of these recurring"...
54 Black Sun Empire
Cruel and Unusual


Another reason why I love DnB: It is glorious.
53Underworld
Beaucoup Fish


Techno & house. Underworld: One of the greatest dance acts in the Multiverse. "Moaner" will play during the Apocalypse. Get ready.
52The Prodigy
Music for the Jilted Generation


Rebel. Elite. Superb. Breakbeat for free thinkers! Thank you Liam Howlett.
51New Order
Power, Corruption and Lies


All I need to do is open "Age of Consent" and smile. Despite the album title and the lyrics, New Order will always celebrate life in the end. Noble.
50Simian Mobile Disco
Attack Decay Sustain Release


I always dream of sex when I listen to this. Sharp, so sharp... and wet, and sensual! Mmmm...
49Erasure
Wonderland


Vince Clarke is quite the synthhead. And yes, Erasure made other songs than "Always". Baroque & theatrical synthpop to lift up your mood.
48Autechre
Incunabula


The Sound of the Infinite. Bike Windwind 444 let me rest in you.
47DJ Shadow
Endtroducing.....


TO MIDNIGHT!
46Gary Numan
The Pleasure Principle


Right before the 80s, there was this. Holy shit moment when I discovered that the bassline on "M.E." is the one sampled by the Jaxx on "Where's Your Head At"! Mindblown.
45Depeche Mode
Black Celebration


Atmosphere, yearning souls & keyboards.
44Tim Hecker
Virgins


Wooooowww............I feel dizzy. I've been waiting for such an album.
43Pet Shop Boys
Actually


Another holy shit moment when I heard "Heart". "Hey I know that song!!" The Single Most Addictive Vocal Hook. Oh-ah-oh-oh-ah. Oh-ah-oh-oh-ah.
42Calyx and Teebee
Anatomy


Not an album - it's a movie! Drum & Bass meets Black Hawk Down meets Indiana Jones. Kind of.
41Leftfield
Rhythm And Stealth


How do you make an album after Leftism? Somehow Neil Barnes and Paul Daley managed it. Tribal vibe, as always... Thank you for the adventure. Make a third one please.
40Daft Punk
Homework


Obvious reasons. Can't get more iconic than that. "Around the World" for Earth President. I could have chosen Discovery too.
39The Chemical Brothers

29A Guy Called Gerald
Black Secret Technology


Good ol' Gerald. He is regularly posting on Facebook. Thoughts, poems, ideas. Such a gentleman. Black Secret Technology is a whole jungle poem too.
28Simian Mobile Disco
Unpatterns


SMD are probably one of the most underrated electronic acts around. Why don't people talk about them? Unpatterns is tasty & mysterious altogether.
27Fatboy Slim
You've Come A Long Way, Baby


I will never ever forget the first time I heard "Right Here, Right Now". I had it on repeat for dozens of listens.
26Underworld
Second Toughest in the Infants


Highways & helicopters. Perhaps the most ambitious Underworld album.
25Basement Jaxx
Remedy


The Jaxx were the next logical step after Pet Shop Boys. Remedy is the best ice tea you have ever tasted.
24Adam Freeland
Coastal Breaks II


Breaks. That is all.

I love this expression: tumble down the rabbit hole.....................orbital hole...............
