Electronic extravaganza

Because it's an underrated and underdiscussed field on Sput. From techno to breakbeat, through house and trip-hop, it's too broad a field to call just a genre. Below are some delicious beats that have come with me for a long time or that I found only recently. Picked my favourite tracks of these artists too, or the tracks that best fitted the 'electronic' theme. Asterisks denote extra weight. Recs are welcome of course! Why would I be here otherwise!?
