Electronic You Should Own

Twenty of my favorite electronic albums including trip-hop, drum and rbass, electronica, trance and ambient. Good addition to any music rlovers collection
1Noisia
Split the Atom


I found out about this album from none other than the infamous Deviant, and damn did it impress me. The bass practically soaks through the speakers in this album and the tracks featuring Foreign Beggars destroy face. Probably my favorite electronic album from 2010 and a must have.
2Bassnectar
Cozza Frenzy


One of the first dub-step albums i really got into. Songs Cozza Frenzy and Boombox alone are worth your time. A fresh, fun album.
3Tim Hecker
Ravedeath, 1972


Tim Hecker manages to achieve a diverse and entertaining sonic landscape on this release. Ambient is a genre that can often bore listeners, but i found this album to be an ambient album that both invokes a variety of emotions and is very relaxing. It does this without becoming dull or boring.
4The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble
Here Be Dragons


Another ambient album that really grabbed my attention from the first time i listened to it. Every song produces a unique and dark atmosphere. Beautiful vocal samples will creep into the picture at different points of the album along with brass solos and jazz drumming. This is the most enjoyable ambient-infused album i have encountered.
5Ital Tek
Midnight Colour


This album is SEXY. Its displays an awesome mix of dub-step and trip-hop that I haven't heard from any artist before. Songs like Babel and Strangelove VIP show off some deep and powerful bass you'll find in many dubstep songs, while songs like Subgiant and Moment in Blue dive more into the trip-hop area with their wide variety of sounds and beat structures. Sounds like what would happen if Flying Lotus decided to make a more dance orientated album. Absolutely astonishing. Came out in 2010
6Mimosa
Silver Lining


Another 2010 gem. Sits more in your straight up WHOMP style of dub-step, but some of the best "WHOMP" I've listened to.
7Skrillex
Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites


Most of the sputnik community is probably familiar with this album, mostly because of its presence in the top EP's of 2010, but there is really no denying the power of this album. Skrillex has managed to find the perfect mix between ridiculously hard-hitting dubstep and spacey trance to make this a very entertaining album. You'll find it hard to find a more bass heavy and intense dub-step album.
8Burial
Untrue


2010 happened to be the first year that i owned and listened to this album. At first i wasn't too into it. Nothing seemed to jump out at me, though i enjoyed his use of vocal samples and the interesting beats present in every song, i just didn't understand it. But after a few more listens it hit me. This is the soundtrack to a dark night in the city. You can see the cloud of pollution rise from the buildings as you enter the city. You can see the streetlights blur as you travel through the streets, down dark alleys and under overpasses. Entering the club of packed with strangers and dizzying lights. And finally finding yourself in McDonalds to cure some late night hunger.
9Clive Tanaka Y Su Orquesta
Jet Set Siempre No. 1


Chill and Dance. Came out in 2010
10Deadmau5
4x4=12


Some people will write this album off as repetitive trance that goes no where, but i actually enjoyed the simplicity of this album. City in Florida will always get the party bumpin. Some good trance from the genres leading man.
11Hallucinogen
Twisted


Now this is some great freaking trance. This music is created by one of the two guys who make up the trance group Shpongle. If the name alone doesn't get you interested, then ten minute trance epic Alpha Centauri should do the trick. If you are looking for some music to restore your faith in trance music this is it... though it came out in 1995 lol
12Shpongle
Ineffable Mysteries from Shpongleland


Some more classic trance. I love world-music vibe these guys bring into their music and the use of epic flute solos at the most perfect times. This album is TRIPPY. If you dig trippy, chill-out-styled music, this is another must have.
13Shpongle
Nothing Lasts... But Nothing Is Lost


If you're going to get some music by Shpongle you need both albums. This one is just as awesome.
14Emancipator
Safe In The Steep Cliffs


Awesome instrumental trip-hop. It's very laid back and good to throw on in you're stressed out and need to be transported away from your worries.
15Flying Lotus
Cosmogramma


I consider myself somewhat of a fan boy of whatever Steven Ellison creates. He has a talent and skill of creating some of the most mind-boggling sounds and beats. I don't know how his music comes together but it creates something truly original and otherworldly.
16Massive Attack
Mezzanine


Considered to be the most classic trip-hop album that helped pave the way to many other artists emerging on the scene. Psychedelic and sensual.
17Bong-Ra
Full Metal Racket


Seems like no one knows about this album... its really good. A mix of hardcore and dissonant guitars and blast beat electronic??? Anyways i don't now how the hell to describe this album but it's worth a listen.
