Kraftwerk, Krautrock, Stereolab, and pop dance/ post punk /hip hop is as close as I get to this shit. electronics with guitars and synths get me off more. or electro and real drums. half and half. electronic music is like jazz or old blues. there's a lot to dig through to satisfy. you can spend hours looking for awesome 90's D&B, trance, and IDM, just like you can with old jazz and blues. post-electronic searching is what im into.
A lot of what I listed is actually kind of "electronic + something else" ... this is why"electronic music" is a problematic title. It's like using "rock and roll" to describe everything from The Beatles to, like, Sebadoh.
Blanck Mass (and "parent group Fuck Buttons) are like ½ electronic, ½ harsh noise. Especially Fuck Buttons. Yeah, there's a solidly electronic element, especially to Blanck Mass, but both acts also encorperate MASSIVE guitar noise blitzkriegs and just really offer as much of a "noise rock" experience as a "electronic music" one.
Here, listen to "The Red Wing" from Fuck Buttons' Slow Focus
, which was maybe my #3 or #4 album of 2013... for more of the "half and half" stuff, slide to about 1:15 in.
