Soothing musical loops

I've been really into Swedish electro artist The Field lately. His music features a lot of slow building loops, complex layering, and hypnotic beats. I find the repetition very soothing and it helps me focus at work. I'm looking for more artists with a similar style: electro/synth, no vocals, more repetition than variation. More description within. [more inside]

Way Back Machine to Early 90's Techno Songs - Skinny Bumblebee

Desperately trying to find a techno / EDM song from the early 90's - all I can remember is a lyric that sounds something like: "skinny bumblebee", but kind of drawn out, like "ski-i-i-innnny bumblebee". High BPM dance song. Had it on a mix tape which is now lost to the sands of time.

Dave Brubeck and Daft Punk walk into a bar

It seems 4/4 is the universal time signature for electronic music / techno / EDM. Is there a song or artist that uses any other time signature in a consistent way? As in not just a bridge or for special effect.

Dance Music By People Who Hate Dance Music

I recently rediscovered the song "Man, It's So Loud In Here" by They Might Be Giants, and the delicious juxtaposition of the New Order/Pet Shop Boys pastiche of the music and the sardonic treatment of club culture in the lyrics leads me to my question: What are some other songs that sound like typical dance music but which have lyrics that are critical of dance music or club culture in general?

I just need to know, okay? Don't ask why.

Sometime during the 90's, there was a proto-techno group which I just can't identify. I remember a specific music video in which a large, comically dressed rabbit broke into a laboratory for some illicit purpose. The only thing I know about this group is that the singer is a heavyset black woman, and they sound kind of like Real McCoy or ATB. What is the name of the band? [more inside]
