Cool "electronic" music

Hey all,

Since there are different threads about Blues, Jazz, etc, I decided to start a new thread discussing personal likes/ dislikes concerning "electronic" music.

My personal favourites are:

DR Israel : ragga/Drum'n'Bass/Dub band from NY
Dub War : same influences as Dr Israel, but more aggressive tracks. Unfortunately, they split up 2 or 3 years ago.

Just to mention two of my actual favourites.

We can also as well discuss about a definition for the term"electronic" music.

Would you agree that all which is described as electronic music today started with Donna Summer and "I Feel Love" track back in '70s?

My feeling is that a lot of Electronic music today has been heavily influenced by KraftWerk, going back to and beyond Trans Europe Express.

A lot of the basic beats in todays E-Music were laid down by KraftWerk way back when.

When I think of Electronic I include a lot of what some people think of as Acid Jazz like Kruder & Dorfmeister, Grey Boy and Portishead.

Some of the discs are excellent recordings, KraftWerks "Electric Cafe" is good music very well recorded as is "Computer Welt".

One of my faviorites is Brian Eno's "Music For Films", errie haunting.

Unfortunately, I haven't heard that track yet.Could you explain your choice more precisely?

Same thing with Devo, but the name rings at least some bell........

But regarding Kraftwerk I agree with you (although I'm not their biggest fan).

Talking about Brian Eno, "Another Green World" is fine recording too. And when he started producing U2's albums, I finally started to enjoy their music as well.

That is one famous track. You could probably check it out at Amazon.com. All electronic music started from that one.
