I discovered "electronic jazz" today and I think it's really interesting. Do you like any unusual sub-genres of music?

Postmodern late 20th century minimalist classical music. Arvo Part, Phillip Glass (some of it), Anton Gorecki, etc.

Pärt’s “Alina” on ECM is one of my desert island discs. I really dig what I have heard of Flying Lotus’ work too.

Uhm, “unusual” sub-genres…doom metal sunn 0))), Nadia, etc.

For electro jazz I’d also check out Big Gigantic

I’ve recently fell in love with elecro swing
Tape Five
Caravan Palace
Electric Swing Orchestra

I’m also a huge fan of Postmodern Jukebox which is a cover band that does stuff in a swing style.

And now for some extremely unusual music. South African rap rave.

Die Antwoord (warning…these videos may offend some :P)

@anniereborn has got me into 1940s swing and big band music. My favourites are Benny Goodman and Gene Krupa (often to be heard together – Krupa was the drummer).

Monk chants are supercool, and Vietnamese love songs. You don’t think, just feel the music.
