Fev 4 2012, 14h48 por voicesdaMy first love has always been electronic music. I may have dressed like various indie stereotypes
2002-2004 - Strokes
2005 - 2009 - Various American Indie bands who would wear t shirts over other clothing, creating a two fold top look
2009 - present - flannel shirts
Even dressed like the latest vampire weekend wannabe who shops at Urban Outfitters I would always have some electronic music on my Walkman, iPod Nano, Sony MP3 Walkman (I miss you), iPhone and now random (iPhone/Nexus S) device that has my Spotify playlists.
Even as a child I knew I liked electronic music because I would watch the Fashion Show (honest) just for theme tune (In The Night) and I always loved the theme tune for It Will Never Work (People Are People), I didn't know it was Depeche Mode as the song was released before I was born and I certainly didn't know of the rave scene etc, because I was between the ages of 4-7 between 1990 and 1993.
Whilst my love of these 80s bands is well documented before on here and my scrobbles…

Abr 19 2011, 22h43 por benharris16Obviously this will miss some fantastic songs but I thought i would knock up a brief look at the songs which i think all deserve mentions and what i would recommend other people to check out from the 90s; some incredible material from some quality bands. Just part of the reason why the 90s remains what i see as the best decade for music! Hope you enjoy :) And i may add actual youtube tags to some of this at some point!

Fev 28 2010, 22h08 por hbafAphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 85-92
1. Xtal, 2. Tha, 3. Pulsewidth, 4. Ageispolis, 5. i, 6. Green Calx, 7. Heliosphan, 8. We Are the Music Makers, 9. Schottkey 7th Path, 10. Ptolemy, 11. Hedphelym, 12. Delphium, 13. Actium
Świat nie rozwija się linearnie. Zmiana jest konsekwencją rewolucji, ta zaś jest jest wrogiem utrwalonego porządku. Jak w świecie, tak i w muzyce, na stagnację nie ma miejsca. Na scenie co jakiś czas pojawiać się musi ktoś, kogo podejście do dźwięku, kompozycji czy technik produkcji otworzy uszy szerokiego audytorium na nowe, nieeksplorowane gatunki.
W 1992 roku tym kimś okazał się Richard D. James, znany między innymi jako Aphex Twin. Szczęściarz, którego spotkał zaszczyt bycia ojcem. Ojcem gatunku. Jednego z najważniejszych gatunków współczesnej muzyki elektronicznej, w skrócie zwanego IDM. Debiutancki longplay Aphex Twin, "Selected Ambient Works 85-92", to sedno tego, co zwykło się, mimo wszystkich późniejszych wątpliwości…
Jan 6 2010, 3h14 por TheEngineer1985As a composer of ambient music, I have been asked several times what have been my influences. Which, depending on what day you ask me my answers may change. I went through my collection to try and find what I would not only consider great ambient music, but also a great diversity in the genre. You'll notice there is no Robert Rich or Harold Budd in this selection and as much as I do love their work, I wanted to include a variety of artistic styles. Not all of these will be found on your digital cable soundscapes channel.
1.)Brian Eno - Ambient 4: On Land
-So warm. He captures so much atmosphere and takes you somewhere that is so much better than where you are currently. This album is one of the most relaxing collections of music I have ever heard. The ideal place to listen to this is when you are falling asleep on a beach and the sun is setting in the west.
Favorite track: Dunwich Beach, Autumn, 1960
2.)Brian Eno - Apollo Atmospheres & Soundtracks
Jun 28 2009, 5h48 por EncouragingSlugA friend sent me an invite to emusic.com which included fifty free tracks to start off with. In the hope of helping those navigating the trash and treasure that emusic has to offer, here is a list of the tracks I chose for my fifty free downloads:
Love Will Tear Us Apart
These were from the Joy Division live album Let the Movie Begin. The sound quality on this is, shall we say, variable. Love Will Tear Us Apart is obviously a classic track, no more need be said. Nine Inch Nails did a great cover of Dead Souls on the The Crow soundtrack, which is where I first heard that one. Digital is another track that manages to surive the dismal live recording quality.
A Sadness Song
I couldn't find some the other Current 93 songs I'd like, but the album/compilation Calling For Vanished Faces looks interesting, and I'd like to investigate it further at some stage.
I've got this John Denver song in a songbook for guitar.
I Get Lonesome
Cyanide Breath Mint
