I like electronic music, but much I don't like. I don't stand for the techno, danceable type music... anything with a four on the floor beat.

I like people who use experimental sounds in a melodic context. I'm a huge fan of squarpusher, and other more synth pop type bands... who may delve into glitch and other stuff. I don't care for Aphex Twin, but to be honest I haven't listened to all of his stuff. There's a high pitched sheen to his music that really bugs me. I like the experimental approach, as long as it's tasteful and done musically, like dissonance in jazz.

I also write my own electronic music. Which I find hard to classify, since I'm not into any scenes or know what genres are which. I just try to find good music.

I think part of my enjoyment of electronic music comes from video games. I think my appreciation of music got calibrated to the type of music coming from old video games. That sort of melodic, theme based electronic music really speaks to me.

My music is here, MegaPixel Music.

My newest, and I think best is the song Some Kinda Electronica.

Checking out your stuff now. Interesting stuff. Some is like classic style chiptune, some is more modern, less electronic sounding. Nice variety you got there. I really like Some Kinda Electronica. I see you use Logic and Kontakt. What are they like? I use FL Studio.

Also can I ask what you mean by the high pitched sheen in Aphex's music?

Thanks for checking out my music.

I do go for variety, try to see what new style of music I can make.

Logic is a great program, it does everything I need it to do. Editing midi notes is easy. I've started to use automation and that is easy too. Kontakt is a beast of a program, I have only recently started to get a handle on it. The bass guitar sound in some kinda electronica was made with it. I'm satisfied.

I'm much less of a pattern musican, so logic is better for me than FL studio. I just picked up logic studio 9, I can't wait to start playing with the extra instruments.

If you like chip-tune, listen to Happy Accident. I made that in the style of NINTENDO music.

Ah, this is the place I need to come to for information, then... We have some trance music, Tiesto and the like, but of course there's some singing in it and it all has the heavy dance beat. That's fine sometimes, but lately I've been trying to find something of that sort but with no singing and a lighter treatment to the beat. Hallucinogen seemed to be nearer the mark, but all the samples I listened to sound the same. I really wanted something like a song named Continuum from a game called acid tetris. It was complex somewhat in the manner of Bach but with an electronic sound, very spacey. Trouble is, you search for electronic, trance, new age, and within each category you get a huge variety of results.


I would highly recommend This Binary Universe by BT. It's entirely instrumental, not clubby and is very unique sounding. I'd also recommend checking out Hybrid.

I'm listening right now as well. Great attention to mood, detail, good rhythm change-ups as well (the drum samples and mixing are up there as well).

I LOVE BT. And This Binary Universe is just utterly compelling and out of this world. Completely different to his other works, but superb nonetheless. Hybrid are also geniuses. You might like to try Autechre for real unusual filtery-type compressed Electronic music. Boards Of Canada have create some wonderful nostalgic music. Orbital and Leftfield are great for a slightly more commercial edge, they do feature SOME vocals/singing but their stuff is amazing and varied.

There is a metal version of phendrana drifts. I didn't pick the original because its more of a melancholic and peaceful song rather than an electronic song. But there are a lot of metroid prime trilogy songs that are electronic.
