Awesome Music / Electronic

Artists with their own pages:

Miscellaneous:

  • Tangerine Dream, anyone?
    • Klaus Schulze had a massive solo career, but the organic, soaring, otherworldly Moondawn takes the cake. The sound and flowing rhythms from the original master still hold up today.
  • Fuck Buttons. They have the ability to make music that is amazingly catchy, while being polyphonic AND quite often polyrhythmic. And they do it on fucked up kids toys.
  • Ferry Corsten. Exhibit A: "Fire".
  • Give it up for Industrial Music:
    • :WUMPSCUT:. Their sound molds Industrial with house music. It worked well! Examples: "We Believe We Believe", "Jesus Antichristus", "Mother","Wolf", "Fuckit".
    • Combichrist. Don't let their Nightmare Fuel thematics fool you. Their music WILL raise your blood pressure. Examples: "I Want Your Blood", "What the Fuck is Wrong with You", "Sent to Destroy", "Shut Up and Bleed" and "This is My Rifle".
    • Laibach. They have an incredibly distinctive sound, mixing booming industrial beats with folk music. Examples: "Yisrael", a mashup of the Palestinian and Israeli national anthems.
    • VNV Nation. The Trope Makers of the beautiful genre called Futurepop. Listen to them right NOW!!! Examples: "Industrial Love", "Arclight".
    • Covenant. Their music ranges from lovely tear-jerking futurepop songs, all the way to fistpump-friendly industrial dance. Examples: "Bullet", "We Stand Alone", "20 Hz", "Wir Sind Die Nacht".
    • mind.in.a.box. Want a journey in an amazing alternate reality? Go ahead and listen to them. Examples: "Identity", "Walking", "What Used To Be", "Change".
    • Centhron. Viking metal meets industrial music. Yes, it's awesome. Examples: "Tanz im Sternefeuer", "Asgard", "Einheit C".
    • Skinny Puppy. If you don't love them... You don't like industrial music in general. Examples: "Useless", "Worlok", "Testure", "Pro-Test".
    • Neuroticfish. Another awesome futurepop act, which crosses industrial with progressive trance. Examples: "The Bomb".
    • Assemblage 23. Their sound is incredibly cryptic, and will really enter in your mind in no time. Examples: "Damaged".
    • Xotox. Their sound is raw, aggressive, and no holds barred. Examples: "[Xo]toxic" and "Mechanische Unruhe".
    • Emika. Dark and eerie, just the way gothic industrial should be. Examples: "Double Edge (GeRM remix)".
  • Industrial Metal is no slouch either.
    • Nine Inch Nails. Bypass their way too over-the-top thematics, and ANYTHING made by them becomes this. Examples: "The Hand That Feeds", "Discipline", "We're In This Together", "Head Like a Hole", "Closer".
    • Ministry. The Trope Makers of industrial metal. They have to be awesome! Examples: "Jesus Built My Hotrod"
    • Marilyn Manson. Examples: "This Is The New Shit".
    • Rammstein. Americans love them for a reason that should be obvious. Their industrial metal is truly overwhelming. Examples: "Du Hast", "Ohne Dich", "Feuer Frei!", "Ich Tu Dir Weh", "Mein Land".
    • Rob Zombie. A long career and he still makes the great industrial metal he's known for. Examples: "Dragula", "Never Gonna Stop".
    • Fear Factory. Easily the most hardhitting, relentless and pounding industrial metal band in the scene. Their music is amazing, but can be pretty inaccessible at first. Examples: "Shock", "Powershifter", "Cars", "Demanufacture", "The Industrialist".
  • Classic industrial...
  • The Birthday Massacre, one of the best bands ever, write incredibly catchy and well done music. Their style could be described as synthpop-industrial-alternative rock-metal. Also, they're Canadian.
  • The Knife. "Heartbeats", "Marble House", and "Pass This On" are examples of how awesome the Dreijer siblings are. And Karin is Crazy Awesome in her own merit, each relisten to the Fever Ray album yields new quirks in the songs.
  • "Score (Original mix)" by Slyder. Especially the buildup at 3:42. Definitely a Moment of Awesome. Even more awesome when driving to it in Grand Theft Auto 3.
  • "High" by Peter Moesser and Harold Faltermeyer. Just an upbeat electronic song from The '70s that's somewhat ahead of its time.
  • "Biocandy" by Chi-A.D.. Merely listening to it will get you high without drugs.
  • UNKLE's "Burn My Shadow" is just... epic.
  • Renard Queenston: One of his best tracks is "The Castle".
