Good eclectic grooves?

Asked by toaster (527points) October 11th, 2010

Im wondering what sparks your brain chemistry in the indie/experimental/techno/jazz realm of music. Just feel-good euphoria laced torrents and loop beats.
Also Im aware of tastekid.com although Ive exhausted most results. Thanks greatly.

James Blake is a current favorite in the electronic realm, but Boxcutter has got to be an all time favorite. The most unique dubstep I’ve found.

Good stuff man, Im watching on youtube.
I was haunted by these brilliantly crafted instrumental and eclectic songs being played on West Virginia Public Radio (a whole lot more liberal than it sounds btw) in between their news programs and whatnot, but they hardly ever mention the artist. Anyways its whole new kind of music that i was curious about.

@toaster Yeah, James Blake has got some great EP’s. I really want him to release an album.

Mount Kimbie and Distance fit into about the same genre as James Blake and Boxcutter if that’s what you’re into.

How about some shpongle

@uberbatman Dude, I had the chance to see them in San Francisco a few weekends ago but it was 18+. I totally should have tried anyway.

@dverhey I saw them once at camp bisco a couple years back at their first american show. AMAZING. Im going to see them open for disco biscuits on jan 30th. I was going to go see them play with infected mushroom and hallucinogen, but decided Id rather see Lotus on NYE and see shpongle the day before :)

@uberbatman Yeah, they were playing with Infected Mushroom and Hallucinogen in SF. They sound pretty sweet live.

@uberbatman you need to get your own satellite radio station, very good across the board music.

@toaster ahh so ya listened in, good to hear ya liked it :)

@dverhey yea its a shame shpongle isnt headlining. I mean infected is good, but nothing to shpongle.
