* EpicRocking: Barring Sasha's 42 minute DJ mix on BT's debut album ''Ima'', most of the standalone songs fit the bill: the two-part "Loving You More" is a total of 13 minutes; "Blue Skies", another two-parter, is 17 minutes; and "Divinity" is 11 minutes. They don't call it "epic house" for nothing.
** Sasha, who had a penchant for long songs back in the day, also did a 12-minute remix of "Embracing the Sunshine", and a 13-minute mix of "Remember".
** The majority of songs on ''ESCM'' were also over 8 minutes in length, culminating with the awesome 11-minute "Content".
*** "Content" proper is actually around 8 minutes in length; following nearly two minutes of silence, there is a short hidden track starting at 9:51. It is a small orchestral version of "Flaming June".

BT is the stage name of Brian Transeau, a prominent electronic musician. His signature style includes a lot of post-processing effects, oftentimes making you think that your UsefulNotes/MP3 player has crashed horribly or become possessed by [[EldritchAbomination something quite unpleasant]]. Despite this, his music is still precisely rhythmical, [[EarWorm insanely catchy]], and omnipresent.

** ''This Binary Universe'' was a complete GenreShift to experimental, ambient and new age electronica (influenced by CreatorBreakdown due to his equipment being stolen and his daughter's kidnapping.) ''If the Stars Are Eternal, So Are You and I'' and ''Nuovo Morceau Subrosa'' followed suit with more glitch, dark ambient, drone music and chillstep (an ambient form of dubstep.)

His albums have run the gamut from straight progressive trance, to vocal-heavy dance, to phenomenally stirring ambient music. As a producer, he's collaborated with many other artists ([[Music/SoulCoughing Mike Doughty]], Music/ToriAmos, Music/BritneySpears, and [[Music/ThePolice Stewart Copeland]] to name a few) and remixed songs by... pretty much anyone he hasn't collaborated with ({{Music/Madonna}}, TheDoors, DianaRoss).
