Electronic Music Thread

Postby The Cosmic Mainframe » Tue Apr 14, 2020 8:26 am

Electronic music: in other words, music created using electronic instruments or computers as the main part of its production. Synthesizers, drum machines, vocoders, and even samples (if used creatively) are used in electronic music.

There are a lot of different subgenres of electronic music, including Techno, EDM, Dub, Dubstep/Brostep, Synth-pop, Synthwave, Chiptune, and Ambient music.

I'll start with a few of my favorite tracks:

I hope there are enough fellow fans of electronic music to keep this alive!

Autobahn! Yes, Autobahn is a good one.

Actually, most of my music is electronic in some way or another, since most of them are from the 1980s.

The challenge (for me) is trying to narrow down a subgenre, such as Pop/Rock for Madonna's Crazy for You, or Contemporary R&B for the Pointer Sisters’ Jump.

It's often pointed out that Kraftwerk has probably had a really large influence on pop music, as they were one of the first bands to combine pop melodies with synth beats, as in their songs "Autobahn," "Computer World," "Tour de France," and most famously "The Model."

Giorgio Moroder also deserves a lot of credit - when I feel love first came out, you could tell it was a game changer.

The first proto electronic track I heard was when I was 11 in 1972 Pop Corn by Hot Butter
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfdLh0MHqKw

There was also Magic Fly from Space in 1977
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9Mh7KPtfcE

I started listening to Kraftwerk around the time Trans Europe Express came out.

Other early stuff was White Noise an Electric Storm from 1969
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwcLEiN ... qpWKca6Yqt

Silver Apples from 1967
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3G1hRNLlYpg

and Isao Tomita's electronic takes on classical pieces

Roki Vulovic, one of my favorite artists, has a few songs with synthesizers, and I can note a few. For non-Serbo-Croatian speakers, use captions.

Crni Bombarderi, a song about the F-117 Nighthawk that was shot down on March 27, 1999. Please note that this song is not political. Even though he isn't as famous as he used to be, all of Roki's songs are loved by many, including *Serbs, Slovenians, Bosnians, Croats, Greeks, and many others all over the Balkans.
https://youtu.be/v7xJpmwVX9g
Republiko Srpska, a song about Serbia.
https://youtu.be/QXRw1wfWcWU
Pukovnice Colicu, which is dedicated to Colonel Colicu.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5n-ubTqOl5g
Moja Zemlja, literally meaning "My Country", is a another song about Serbia
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sz3o9e9FVtw
Balada o herojima, dedicated to the bravery of those who, at the time, were risking their lives during the Croatian War of Independence.
https://youtu.be/W3fJmjQrX54

*(despite the fact that those countries fought each other, some people, including some who fought in the Yugoslav wars, enjoy his songs even though they may have fought on opposite sides)

He does not currently produce music at a large scale. He started making songs again around 2 years ago, and has made 2 songs since then. He's in his 60s now, so yes, I'd say he's pretty vintage. His musical career was mostly in the 90s.

Binary Finary - 1999

Old-fashioned trance music. Worth a download and it's a cool little thing to play on the road.

Yeah. When I'm trying to sleep, browsing the web or whatnot I usually put on a mix of vaporwave or lofi or something similar.

I'm not sure who my favorite artist would be, since I usually just put on one of the mixes you find on Youtube instead of listening to the songs individually. I'll have to pay more attention to which artists show up more often.

Reminds me of the music you would hear in a mobile puzzle game. But with a bit more effort.

Currently listening to Brian Eno's album "Nerve Net:"

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... x-Vlv6dYdC

Nice and minimalistic, and the beats are still great.

I think the very first electronic tune was Popcorn by Gershon Kingsley. It's actually pretty catchy for a thing this old.

There's been so many remixes that it was a bit tricky to find the original version though.

Just took a skim through the album; methinks it sounds like an experimental version of ambient.

Maybe you'll take a liking to this if that's the case?

Aphex Twin! I have mixed feelings about their more hectic music, but I really liked that, so thanks for the suggestion.

It probably does not hurt to mention some of my favourite Scritti Politti songs that has a lot of synthwave influence to produce somewhat exotic sounds? The Word Girl and Wood Beez.

I don't listen to any French artists regularly, but I believe that Orbital (British) and C418 (German) have been described as producers of house music, and I listen to them.

I have heard of Daft Punk, but I'm not a regular listener. I looked up Mr Oizo, and their music sounds fairly unique and interesting.

Western electronic music have nonsensical lyrics, but it doesn't matter since it's good anyways! :lol: My favourite western electronic songs are mostly from Alan Walker, as for Chinese, SING all the way.
