wondering how many electronic music fans we got over here...

got into the scene back in the early 90s... my first exposure being The Prodigy, The Crystal Method, The Chemical Brothers and Westbam... while in Poland right around 2000, discovered trance music and have been a fan ever since...

i still listen to trance, house and techno, being from Detroit, i better... haha...

hate edm, hate dubstep, and hate pop house...
i used to enjoy Swedish House Mafia 2009 and before... same can be said with djs like David Guetta... i do still enjoy myself some Steve Angello and Eric Prydz... and pretty much anything Pete Tong plays during his weekly show is fine by me!

curious what ppl listen to today and what they used to enjoy...

OMG, This is all I listen too. 1000 **** DJ's, Meatbeat Manifesto, Mussoloni Headkick, A Split Second, Nitzer Ebb and a ton of others. I have never heard of Clam of Xymox, but I LOVE Clan of Xymox. Have you seen the quest, awesome Industrial soundtrack, Front 242, Xymox and many more

Well, you are losing out if you haven't rocked Clam of Xymox- Rummy Marrings is still going strong!:LOL:
My 80's-90's stuff consisted largely of the Chicago Wax Trax! Bands and Canadian Nettwork bands, and the English groups on Rough Trade, 4AD, Factory, etc.
Great stuff. Clan of Xymox's first 3 are my favs (Medusa wins for best)
If you like Medusa check out Pieter Nooten/Michael Brook 'Sleeps with the Fishes' - Pieter wrote A lot of the songs on Medusa. He did the side project where half the songs are Ambient versions of the Medusa songs. (He left after the third C.O.X. album). Pieter is actually back after a long hibernation. He has released 4 albums in the last 10 years. Great stuff- but it is more ambient side of things.
But Clan Of Xymox is right up there- although they did do a bunch of weak albums in the middle years when they were just called XYMOX.
But I have to say, out of that era, no one was more inventive than Jim Foetus. Those FOETUS albums ('Nail', 'Hole', etc.) still are as exciting as ever. Still weird that he is the composer for VENTURE BROS.!!
Oh- the Quest? Wasn't that a Jean Claude Van Damme movie?
I'm gonna go ahead and guess you meant The Guest?
Or Maybe it IS The Quest with music from ClaM of Xymox!!:hilarious::rofl:
(The answer is no- I just got the steelbook yesterday- no kidding!)
It is so funny to hear music I love showing up in movies NOW! So...25 years later they discover how cool bands like Xymox, Sisters of Mercy, etc. are! Late to the party guys!

O.K. - Check this out. It will freak your sh*t out. I actually bookmarked this so I wouldn't lose it (I found it a while ago). Some guy used software to retune Metallica doing "Nothing Else Matters" in a MAJOR key! I am a musician and have worked in studios for many years with software like Autotune and Melodyne- and I still have no idea how this guy did this. (He must have had stems...)
But it is FREAKY!! Strangely UPLIFTING now!!!

Electronic music!? I ******* love that stuff. I will come back to this thread, but if we're talking prog house tonight, here's a couple:



Just for the record, I love all the industrial/more heavy stuff. I've been working in various music shops for over 10 years in my early days, lol!

Like someone once said: I will be back......

im going to get to see a dj tonight that hasent been to Detroit since 2004! :headphone:

really looking forward to a night full of tech-house/progressive tracks!
Sasha!

Omg. He is my all time favorite progressive dj.

He takes you on a journey and his mixing skills are second to none.

Have fun mate!
I agree! Him and Digweed back in the days, wow!

I still listen these all the time. The GU Ibiza is an classic! :)
