I've always loved electronic music, but lately I'm getting hardcore into it, and I need suggestions. Hearing the same stuff over and over is pissin' me off.

What groups do you guys recommend?

I dunno, what bands do you listen too?
Mainly generic remixes and stuff as of now. But this is the kid who made a 90-minute loop tape of the Mission 4: Armada theme from Sega's Shadow Squardron as a kid, so I'm open to anything. I still dig that song though, it's playing off my TV as I'm typing this.

Ah I see...check out sonicfury.net. It has some techno and stuff, some mixes may be 5 minutes, some are over an hour. It's pretty intense raver stuff though.

electronic is different than techno and shit like that

you have to decide whether you're going to get into ambient type shit or like trance.

Shpongle
Infected Mushroom
any of the "ambient meditations" cd's
Newer Radiohead

i'm not claiming to know alot about the genre but in my experience...this is some of the better shit.

from there you should be able to get into it....shpongle and IM are more trancey and ambient meditations is just that....if you've never listened to Radiohead Kid A all the way through at least once....you might be a redneck.
