Oh, you didn't have either in CD format? It looks like you can get the other one by importing from a third party seller on Amazon.co.uk. Of course, that makes for an expensive CD.

Sorry Charles I hadn’t read this thread earlier. As you two must be alluding to I’m a big electronic music fan but it’s a damm big genre so is there anything in particular you were considering or wishing to rule out.

List of electronic music genres

I pull a lot of stuff off internet radio to sample one of my favorite set of stations is SomaFM

Has anything I’ve linked to ever interested you like Armin Van Buuren mentioned above?

Also Armin Van Buuren’s show “A State of Trance” (ASOT) is a great start for trance music. Though he leans a little more to the progressive side while I prefer Psychedelic/Goa trance esp “full on” and “dark psy”

I have “A State of Trance Classics” Vol. 1-4 all of which are good and some of which are available on Amazon as mp3s.

I have to admit that my following of your music links has been haphazard at best, and I can't say I remember what I've liked or disliked. And yeah, as that list of sub-genres indicates, it's a huge world of possibilities. I don't even know where to start. I can say I think it would be hard for me to get into anything that's too repetitive. I think I need something more obvious and attention-grabbing. Obviously if vocals are going to be involved, I tend to find it easier to get into female vocals. I think I'm hoping to find some modern day genius composers who just happen to use digital instrumentation that will show off what my system is capable of. Considering how oblivious I am to the whole scene, I'm not sure they're out there. I think I get a little turned off by electronic music where I can't sense an underlying human passion. Some grit and imperfection would be welcome, if that makes any sense, given that I'm asking for electronic music in the first place. So... any idea where I might start? I'll check out SomaFM.

I mostly listen to SomaFM for the “Drone Zone” and “Space Station Soma” both of which might not appeal to you if you don’t like to much repetition.

You might find the early Human League interesting though they didn’t have the female vocalists back then.

Try out some of these and give a thumbs up or thumbs downs and it might help better target some selections.

Husky Rescue - Blueberry Tree, Pt. 1 Ambient-pop.

Perfume - Electro World HQ Electro-pop, j-pop.

translated but poor audio:

Perfume (パフューム) - Electro World (English

Laika - Almost Sleeping Electronica, Dreampop. . . .

Aural Vampire - オーラルヴァンパイア - / Darkweave, synthpop, electropop. . . .

Robots In Disguise- Turn It Up Electropunk

Girls' Generation(소녀시대)_RunDevilRun(런데빌런 Pop Dance

Tujiko Noriko + Tyme. - また、らいねん [Mata Experimental

Probably not up your ally but one of my favorite psytrance groups.

Electric Universe - Lumiere goa/psytrance

Girl's Generation sounds a lot like Lady Ga Ga.

I enjoyed most of those, even if they weren't all tracks I think I would listen to often. I do remember the Perfume and Aural Vampire videos. I think I watched the English version of "Electro World" before, and I prefer the Japanese. I don't think I cared for Aural Vampire last time, but this time I was digging them. I'd say that out of that list I liked Husky Rescue and Aural Vampire the most on first listen. You guessed right about Electric Universe. I think I would find it hard to get into trance-type music. If it seems like I'm supposed to be in a dark club with pulsing lights, I think I might always feel out of place listening to it. Ha ha.

Ha ha. Wow is right. It started off slightly disturbing and eventually got pretty gross. Catchy enough song.

Once I find a band I like or want something similar I often go to last.fm and do a search. On the artists page there are “Similar Artists” linked:

Aural Vampire

Husky Rescue

Have you heard these:

Qntal - Ecce Gratum (extended version)


Bespa Kumamero (Nylon Wave)

I hadn't heard those. I couldn't quite get into them. I did, however, purchase Aural Vampire's Zoltank from iTunes, since getting a CD seems to require importing from Japan, which makes things many times more expensive.

Thanks, guys, for sharing. Feel free to offer more suggestions, and I'll also let you know if I come across anything else that catches my attention.
