Amon Tobin - At The End Of The Day

Amon Tobin. Foley Room. The only word that describes this album is orgasm. Tobin is, in my mind, the master of semi-electronic. From his harder psychedelic idm to his smooth nu-jazz, it's all FANTASTIC. FUCKING FANTASTIC. For real, go check out some of his albums, be it through bittorrent or by buying his albums. Need more proof of his genius? Ever played Splinter Cell 3? He made that sound track. Ever played inFamous? He was one of 3 guys making that sound track.
If you want to buy this album, you can do so here. You could also buy one of his album packs, which include 4 albums for about 30 dollars. They are found here and here.

Venetian Snares - Befriend A Childkiller

I attempted to find the longer ~9 minute version from the Doll Doll Doll 12" on youtube, but I was unsuccessful. This version is just as good though. So, VSnares. If you know him, you love him. If you don't know him, you should get to know him, and proceed to love him. For me, he's the undisputed king of breakcore. He lives up in Winnipeg Canada, just blasting out music all day, and releases on average, a few releases per year. He just released an album back in September, and it's pretty dec. His 9th or 11th full length album, or something close to it. This man is just a serious beast when it comes to music. You can bet your ass that I'll be posting more from this man in the future.

The man behind the breaks

Rustie - Hyperthrust

If I recall, the first day I heard this song, I listened to it about 10 times in a row, which is extremely uncommon for me to do. But something about this song struck a nerve. The absolute power within the keyboard runs drove me mad, in the best way. Literally could not stop listening. Do yourself a favor, and check out the rest of the EP, either via bittorrent or at his page on Warp Records.

Crystal Castles Double Feature

One current day electronic must seems to be Crystal Castles. This duo works with style and skill. Ethan makes sweet beats, and Alice screams her lungs out to said beats. Their second self titled album dropped this past summer (and leaked months earlier, to those watching out) to a huge success. Like, holy shit popular. People couldn't get enough of a new Crystal Castles album, myself included. So I decided I needed to post some songs from it, and I chose my two favorites. I love, love, love glitched out vocals like this.

Runner up video today was Doe Deer.

Pretty Lights - Fly Away Another Day

This song has kept me feeling bouncy all day. Really nice mix of funk, electro, piano, grimey bass, hip hop, etc etc. On a scale of one to cool, it's definitely a cool. The song is from the album Passing By Behind Your Eyes. You can download it for free on their main site,, for free. If you have the funds, please try to donate! These guys kick so much ass.

Samples - Underscore

I don't have a nice fancy youtube video for you this time, but I do have a nice link.

Ben Samples is one of my favorite dubstep artists. He's a big figure in a relatively new genre some are calling lazer bass, and he's gaining a name for himself in the glitch hop community as well. Just listen to that song, and the name lazer bass should be fairly obvious.
That album can also be downloaded for free, but support is always welcome!

Tycho - Coastal Brake (Lusine Remix)

Tycho makes some of the my favorite idm downtempo (besides the Boards of Canada). This song is from his latest release, Coastal Brake (a maxi single 12"). Great song, and some great remixes. This one catches my ear the best, however, because of the nice glitch-and-mix qualities through the entire song.
I'd never listened to Lusine before this song, but I can say that if you like this, you should check out some of his albums.

Both the vinyl and web versions can be purchased here if you're interested, though I should warn you that the vinyl is overpriced to hell
