I like electronic music. But what kind would this be considered?
My tastes in music have been expanding over the past decade; Daft Punk and Stereolab were probably my gateway drugs in high school and I've been finding that I really enjoy a lot of electronic sampled music. I went to some record stores in pursuit of vinyl but then realized I have no idea what I'm looking for-- the selections are either very pared down or split up into a ton of genres like drum and base, trance, house, etc.
Here's a list of the artists I've gotten into:
-Aphex Twin (although mostly for Windowlicker- I've only casually listened to other albums)
-Daft Punk -especially Alive 2007 lately!
-Toro y Moi
Also: I got very into Jim Guthrie's Sword & Sworcery LP, along with all the free stuff on the Ghostly
shop. And I am a big fan of DDR, particularly some of their electronic tunes such as DJ Taka's.
So at first my question was going to be 'what else might I like?' but these questions
were pretty handy for that. (but if you have suggestions of artists or music blogs I won't say no!) I've also been recommended checking out Boomkat to learn more. What I really want to know is-- is there a subgenre or genres for what I like beyond electronic so if I look for vinyl I'll be better prepared? I figured Daft Punk would be super simple but couldn't find much, and was surprised that in several stores I didn't find some of these artists-- maybe they don't hang out in electronic anymore? I suspect there's a few subgenres, but even a general direction to look for would be handy.
Thanks in advance!
