I don't know jack shit about electronic music but recently my curiosity has been piqued. Any recommendations on where to start (try to avoid obvious artists/bands)? Doesn't matter if it's house, dubstep, trance, breakcore, idm, ambient, trip-hop, aggrotech, etc.

I can't wait to delve into the music :D

This youtube channel is actually FULL of good minimal synth music.

I've been meaning to make a rec thread for electro/industrial as I've recently started exploring the genre myself. So far I can recommend Front Line Assembly as an essential band.

The first and second Aphex Twin albums are a great place to start for minimal techno and ambient, respectively.
I'm personally fond of sample-based, hiphop style production, E.G. Dj Shadow and Blue Sky Black Death.

Old synth projects from Kraftwerk and Klaus Schulze, the entirety of Aphex Twin's discography, and a general exploration of the Warp and FAX label catalogues would start you off quite nicely.

+1 :)

I personally would also recommend acts like Autechre (Amber & Tri Repetae), Anhedonia (Destructive Forces), Ulver (Perdition City),
Software (Chip Meditation), Harald Grosskopf, Mark Shreeve, The Future Sound of London and Telemetrik.
However - the field of electronic music is so vast that it all depends on what kind of it you may like, more beat-driven, more ambient,
more noisy, more dark, more soft etc.pp.

Anyway - here are two tracks from some of the mentioned artists to give you sth for your ears ;)

Telemetrik:

Anhedonia:

Seconding Autechre, and adding Plaid. Also µ-Ziq. Hunting around the Warp label will definitely bring you good things.

The first electronic album that really hooked me was Plastikman's Sheet One, way back in 1995 or so. It's basically the disc that fully opened my ears to all things electronic, and it's still an absolutely classic slab of expertly crafted techno. Pretty timeless stuff. Woob's 1194 is another essential.

One album apart from Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works II that people seem to really froth over in terms of classic '90s ambient is Biosphere's Substrata. Though I don't think it's that incredible, it's aged pretty well and I'd recommend it as a nice entry point for things variously electronic and ambient-ish.

For more vintage classics, try Jean-Michel Jarre's Oxygene and Equinoxe.

Robert Rich's Trances/Drones is an epic volume of synth-based, meditative ambient that was released in 1982 but sounds like it could've been recorded yesterday. Really excellent material if you want a historically relevant entry into minimalist ambient.

If you can, look into anything you can find by Tetsu Inoue. Then use that as a doorway into Germany's shadowy FAX label, a veritable treasure trove of little-known '90s masterpieces.

Autechre, Aphex Twin, and Boards of Canada are highly recommended by me for more modern sounding electronic stuff, also check out some of the older electronic pioneeers like Klaus schulze, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Manuel Gottsching, Conrad Schnitzler, Cluster, to name a few. Some other really good albums I would recommend are Venetian Snares- Rossz csillag alatt született (modern classical mixed with breakcore, very unique sounding album), Global Communication- 76:14, Porter Ricks- Biokinetics, The orb- The Orb's Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld.

This has some mistakes and is definitely in need of a major update for all the styles that have rapidly appeared in recent years, but it's definitely a great resource:

http://techno.org/electronic-music-guide/

It should help you get a better idea exactly what styles of electronic music you like. After all, "electronic music" is as much of a genre tag as "guitar music." It's just too broad to offer particularly useful recs.

That said, I might as well offer something. I've lately been listening to a lot of jazzy jungle/oldschool dnb: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NoV85P4L8kI

Also seconding Aphex, Autechre, Plastikman and µ-Ziq and adding Squarepusher and Orbital.

Squarepusher is the guy who got me into music of any kind, so he's always going to have a spot in my heart.

I'm also going to throw Igorrr's name in the ring, since this is a metal forum. We here might know him better for being the more consistent half of Whourkr, but his latest two solo albums (Nostril and Hallelujah) are downright fantastic breakcore, if you don't mind the weirdness and baroque-style harpsichord stuff.

And while we're going that way, I'd be remiss in failing to mention Venetian Snares. You NEED to listen to Songs About My Cats. Just trust me on this.

For a guy who's main interest is metal, you will most likely dig some psytrance with energy

IM : The gathering
Astrix : scientific reality
Darkpsy : In virux
Liquid flow : Psyonic storm
Insane creation : Distorted dreams

There you have some different styles, stay clear from Ibiza-crap like Tiesto, Oakenfold etc..., they are to trance what Linkin Fart is to Metal.

From Drum & Bass :

SPOR : Breath in, scream out
Phace & Misanthrop : From deep space
Phace : Reservoir
Concord dawn : Kingdom of fear
Prolix : Twisted angel

From ambient : (lenghty stuff)

Capsula : Gates of heaven
Redshift : Redshift
Radio massacre international
Airsculpture

I leave techno and industrial for others.

Anyone else a fan of the mid-'90s Instinct Ambient label? It only ever put out about 15 releases or so, but many of them were pretty fantastic works of experimental ambient and moody electronica. Definitely a classy, tasteful and influential label, however short-lived. Its very first release - the double disc Pharos by SETI - is one of the finest showcases of spaced-the-fuck-out electronic you're liable to find anywhere. A concept album of sorts based on NASA's search for extraterrestrial life. Totally classic shit that has aged very nicely.

I can make a list of albums, artists, tracks that would take you weeks to go over. You kinda have to narrow down a bit the range of music you currently like and most important dislike. Its like asking for Metal suggestions - You can start with Ozzy and Iron Maiden and end up with Dimmu and Pantera and Korpiklaani. So the range is very wide.

I'm a person who can not stand dubstep but likes the more constant house, upbeat, funky, teachnoish small room beats.

https://soundcloud.com/eatseverything/edits-everything-essential-mix Brit 2 Step Downtempo
https://soundcloud.com/edmtunestv/mat-zo-essential-mix-09-02-2013 Disco Funky Electro
http://www.mixcloud.com/themixfeed/karlsson-and-winnberg-miike-snow-bbc-essential-mix-09-15-2012/ New Wave Electronic Techno
https://soundcloud.com/r_co/derrick-carter-essential-mix Funky House
https://soundcloud.com/thatericalper/2011-01-08-essential-mix-retro Italio-NewWave-OldieDisco
https://soundcloud.com/rivastarr/riva-starr-essential-mix-sat-02-06-2010-www-rivastarr-com Upbeat Soulful House
https://soundcloud.com/jeffgouda/the-twelves-essential-mix-12 Indie Rock Dance Disco House

Those are 2 hour sessions - so you need to play them for a bit before you get into it. Play it when you are playing a video games, doing home work, so you are not necessarily 100% concentrated on it and have it as a background music kinda. You might need 2-3 plays to start liking some parts of the mix. Some times you are going to close it after 10 minutes because its annoying the shit out of you. Thats good because you know what you dont like which narrows your personal taste search.

I think I'll take a moment here to make a point I always make in electronic music discussions: what most people call "dubstep" (Skrillex, etc) is not dubstep. It's something usually called "brostep."

Classic dubstep, and some of the newer acts carrying on the style under a variety of silly genre tags like "future garage" and "UK bass", are definitely worth a look for people into chilled beats. In my opinion, the whole movement reached its apex with Burial's album Untrue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHtNPzaHO7k

Get some goa trance

Astral Projection's discography should be a decent intro. I'd personally recommend Dancing Galaxy.

Get the new Crystal Castles album (III). Some of the most interesting electronic music I've ever heard, and Alice Glass is fucking beautiful.


Shlohmo is also a really unique electronic artist, more with a glitch hip hop emphasis than the whole trance thing.


Final band to check out is Fever Ray. Also check out The Knife, which is the main project of the person behind Fever Ray. I've never really got into The Knife though compared to Fever Ray. I would start with the first self titled album.

Nothing wrong with The Field, but they don't beat Plastikman for minimal tech.

Right... and I mean electronic music is such a vast realm, saying one particular artist in one particular niche is "the best" is just kind of nonsensical. Just sayin'. It's too narrow a determination. Maybe I'm taking semantics too seriously here, but still...

I nth degree recommend the likes of Aphex Twin, Biosphere, Autechre, Squarepusher and Boards of Canada.

I'm very surprised no one has mentioned Monolake or Amon Tobin. I'm not such a huge fan of hip-hop but DJ Shadow is great in the hip-hop/sample electronic field as someone else mentioned.

Ok so let me recommend some shit that hasn't been mentioned:
Gas - so calleed space ambient
Spoiler: show


The Klingons - very cool and unique 80's electronic with some pop influence (PhilosophicalFrog this might be up your alley as well)
Spoiler: show


Access to Arasaka - beat driven glitch with colourful melodies
Spoiler: show


You've probably got your hands full as it is, so I'll leave you with that for now.

Heh, funny, either my eyes decieve me (they do that a lot) or no-one has mentioned Burial yet.
If not, I highly recommend Burial and Clubroot, if you can appreciate highly cerebral and ambient dubstep.

EDIT: So they have. I'll second it anyway!

I'll also throw out a range of great artists from many frontiers of electronic music:

Noisia
Zardonic
Kraddy
Justice
Múm
A7IE
How to Destroy Angels (earlier stuff)
Psyclon Nine
VNV Nation
Xentrifuge

Well man, I'd like to recommend you some goa / psy trance projects.

Goa Trance - Astral Projection, recommended all discography. You can start with the Trust in Trance 1,2,3, The Dancing Galaxy, Trust in Trance - The Next Millennium, Amen. Here are some nice tracks:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mOl0qf5fm4
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fn69uHILxkg
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROI1W3Lgqbs

Every their track is really awesome, but here I posted my best ones. :D

Progressive Psy Trance - Vibrasphere, recommending all discography, but imo, start with the ''Lime Structure''.

Lime Structure: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAapuk6hsu4

There are also other nice project such as Talamasca, Hallucinogen, Pleiadians, Goa Gil, Egorythmia, Infected Mushroom.

If like me you have searched and searched for dark electronic music for years, and find the metal guys and ritual acts just not cutting it, a couple recent things came out that win the prize.

raime -- quarter turns over a living line
opening track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccNW4tIEByo
but one really needs a quality copy, fired up on a stereo, and a full album listen (it's only approx 34 minutes).

and

the haxan cloak - s/t
opening track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZJ-vfCqDik
haxan's new one is coming out this month. looking forward to it.

I don't listen to much electronic music and I'm not even going to try to categorize them, but this is the kind I enjoy. I don't listen to that many less famous electronic artists (as I generally don't like it and it quite often seem generic), so they might not be new to you.

I don't listen to much electronica, but what I do like is:

Daft Punk - essential listening. Check out their Alive 2007 album especially. and Tron:Legacy Recoded
DJ Tiesto - check out Power Mix first (medley of his best stuff) to see if you like it. He's done music for the olympics and such.
Skrillex - First of the Year, Bangarang, Scary Monsters, Narcissistic Cannibal...
some Deadmau5 - of course Ghosts N Stuff. I forget what other songs I have of his. I like his remix of Rope by the Foo Fighters.
The Algorithm - mix of dubstep and metal. Start with Access Denied
