I’m always surprised by how few people are into various types of digital music.

Personally i love loads of different stuff from Drum and Bass through Techno and into Psychedelic Trance and house. Can’t get enough of the stuff! :D

Any other freaks like me out there? :)

Yeah, whenever I play electronica I get weird looks. Basically, it can be produced for cheap without the need for huge backing from producers, so the RIAA tells people they dont like it and would rather listen to X random corporate singer.

Loads of good music can be found here. As a bonus, it is all legally free.

I am all up for paying for music, but I want to be able to listen to it first. Either of you two have any recommendations?

Good luck! :D My friends have been trying to get me to play out for over a year now. Problem is … i tend to play a blend of techno, house and psy-trance and there are waaaay too many purists out there :sad: I ain’t changing my sets to pander to the closed minded :angry:

This is exactly the kind of thing I am looking for. Unfortunately the connection on that particular one is very poor from Iowa State University. It only plays for a few seconds and then has to rebuffer for a few seconds before it can start again.

Edit: I tried the mix, and that was much faster, it is actually realtime now. Chill was not too good for speed though.

Bummer :( Great radio station …

www.shoutcast.com has a fairly comprehensive, and searchable, list …

www.di.fm is a US based net radio station with a hell of a lot of choice. Though I find a lot of what they play “empty”. If you don’t subscribe its only 96Kbps which i, personally, won’t put up with (Where is my bass fatness man!? :lol:) … i won’t go for less than 160kbps myself …

www.philosomatika.com is another US based radio station that exclusively plays psy. Good solid selection they have but you do hear the same tunes cycling every couple of days … 160Kbps

jeah, di.fm i know..

heh, it was great last night (though, i have no clue how good or bad i was:D but it looks like i have some fans, jui)

uhm, it’s about 8 hours to drive with the car up to the concert, and back again.. with the plane, it’s one hour..

the choise is easy (espencially currently as the petrol would cost as much as the flight :D)

it was the best thing in my life after anja.. you shall all come next year if there’ll be another concert!

di.fm is quite nice. My ears are generally not good enough to tell the difference above 96k so I dont mind. Thanks goz, this is a lot of help.

Arrrg!

di.fm just played a song from one of my favorite artists. Damaged by Plumb.
Unfortunately it was not the origional but instead “Plummet - Damaged (Antillas Remix)”

It hurt. It was fast upbeat and almost happy. Very bad thing for this song. Not to mention that I doubt they got her permission for this.

I am new to this forum and I’m old enough to be everyone’s mom.

I got into electronic music when I bought a MIDI workstation in 1991 or 92 instead of a piano when my daughter was taking piano lessons. (I compose music for hobby, and now I’m taking programming classes, including game programming.)

I think more people are familiar with electronic/dance music than you might think.

If you go to the local Y you will find lots of classes with middle-aged ladies dancing and kickboxing to “techno” dance music. The music usually isn’t the best, but it gets everyone moving and coming back for more.

If you go to the mall, you’ll find many clothing stores (for teens and young adults) have techno-electronic music in the background, too. Most of it is pretty bad, too.

Someone has figured out that electronic music helps people get motivated when they exercise AND also motivates people to buy clothes. Lots of TV ads use electronic/dance music, too. Think Basement Jaxx- Moby, FatBoySlim, Paul Oakenfold, etc.

It sells.

Moms buy games and some of them even play them… Electronic/Techno/Dance music is already “positioned” as background music. I’d like to hear more of it in games.

Just a thought.

ps. I like Laurent Garnier (Man with a Red Face, Wake Up), some of Carl Craig/Innerzone Orchestra, some of Gus Gus, some of Boards of Canada, some Sven Gath,etc. (I like other genres of music, too.)
