"What on earth are taking about?"

Somehow I don't think it is Bach's Toccatas and Fugues for the harpsichord. ;=)

It's a style of Music that originated in the late 80's and early 90''s in Detroit, that came from old jazz, soul and rock.

I had always been told true house was started in Chicago... I love electronica and get made fun of often for it.

I am not just a dance and techno fan.

I am an avid listener of The Flaming Lips, the Doors, Elvis, Nirvana, old Rem and many many more :-)

Shall I bring my ipod speakers, Stephen? I have a whole bunch that could cause a breach of the peace when we're up there :-) Many years of the early Ministry of Sound Annuals, some Global Underground, Cream compilations, Sasha and DIgweed, as well as chillout sessions.

Or I could bring along Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, and some other greats.

Listening to electronic dance music and associated generes on the trail creates positive lasting memories of a time or place for me. Maya Jane Coles's Essential Mix helped me pick up the pace on the JMT last summer. Essential Mixes are about the only way I can keep up with new artists since I seem to have stopped going to shows and now spend my time and money backpacking. If I had to load up my mp3 player for a trip tomorrow I might include electronic artists such as: Gabriel and Dresden, Deep Dish, Sasha and Digweed, Above and Beyond, and Maceo Plex and the Chemical Brothers.

I need variety so there would definitely been some jazz, 90's rock, indie and 80's new wave and some Theivery Corporation if I'm hiking with Jay W.

Get to see Bassnectar again next month in Louisville @ Forecastle. Also Zion I, A-Trak, etc. Mostly an alternative fan though. I love Animal Collective, Atlas Sound, LCD Soundsystem when I can listen to it without annoying my friends and family with it.

Hell yeah.

Upon hearing Kraftwerk when I was about 7 years old, life was never to be the same again. All the years of listening to electronic music, industrial music, segued nicely into house and techno. Spent quite a few years involved in the whole rave scene in Toronto and Montreal in the early/mid 90s.

Love music of all sorts, but electronic music seems to always rise to the top.

Lusine, Bluetech, Tipper, Phaeleh, Adham Shaikh, Intense, Speedy J, Rockers HiFi, Lackluster, Aes Dana, Shen, Plej, Fila Brazilia, Amon Tobin, Pépé Bradock, Ill Gates, 4 Hero, Global Communication, Sven Van hees, Aphex Twin, LTJ Bukem, PFM, Boards of Canada, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Terry Lee Brown Jr., Steve Roach, Ochre, Hard Floor, Hatthew Herbert, Legion of Green Men, Hallucinogen, Bonobo, Joey Fehrenbach, Motionfield, Ohm G, Smith & Mighty, Dubtribe, Ed Rush, Nico, Fierce, Optical, Biosphere, Irresistible Force, Kick Bong, Paperclip many others.

All great choices folks,

I do miss good Dance clubs (and the buddies to go with).
I have a much prized collection of about 5 years worth of Essential Mixes and they are class.

I have seen quiet a lot of big name Dj's in my home town of Cork, Ireland but as I now live 2 hours from Detroit I plan to see many more :-)

@Stuart, bring on ASBO mate ;-) No Chavs allowed though.

It's about time we compete with the punks and the bluegrassers.

I'm down with lots of electronic music, from late 70s experimentation to people pushing the envelope today. Too much good stuff to list, from Kraftwerk to trip hop to (good) prog house and deep house, to quality techno, ambient, and a thousand other sub-genres. Last 20 years has seen a ton of good music.

Too many artists to list out, but the current queue is on the glitch/future bass/west coast/whatever tip. An-ten-nae, ill.gates, Opiou, Pretty Lights, Glitch Mob (though not recent stuff) and side projects, Emancipator, Robot Koch, Modeselektor, Pumpkin, Nalepa, Random Rab, Dr. Toast, and billion more. Recent Bassnectar is verging on non-listenable to me, but love the older stuff and the live shows are (almost always) great.

Nothing better than some headphones/good electronic music up above timberline with some scotch!

(Also, Thomas Vree... what a list! So much good stuff in there.)
