This is a blog about electronic music artists and albums that you can check out. This is a guest post by Andrew Smith, who is a musician and also works with artists helping them to get their music heard.
Electronic music is everywhere these days. You can’t walk down the street without hearing something that has been created by a synth, drum machine or sampler.
I love it when I hear an album that makes me think “damn, this is good”. Sometimes though it’s hard to find these albums because there’s so much crappy stuff out there and not enough time in the day to search for the gems.
That’s why I’ve put together this list of some of my favourite electronic albums of all time, ranging from ambient to techno. I hope it helps you find something new and exciting!
If you’re looking for more recommendations, be sure to check out our other lists such as “Best Electronic Albums To Check Out” or “Top 10 Electronic Albums From The Past Year”.

Electronic music is a genre that has been around for over a century. It started out as simple sound experiments, but has now developed into an entire industry of its own. The list below contains 10 electronic albums that you should check out if you want to get into this genre.
The first album on the list is by Aphex Twin. This is one of the most influential artists in electronic music and he has been around for decades. His style is very different from most other electronic music artists and it’s worth checking out his work if you haven’t already done so.
The second album on the list is by Boards of Canada. This is another influential artist who has been around since the late 90s and his work is still relevant today. He has a very unique sound that can be heard on his many albums like Music Has The Right To Children and Geogaddi. You will also find many of his songs featured in video games such as Grand Theft Auto V, BioShock Infinite, and others.
I’ve been listening to electronic music for years, and I’m always looking for new artists with good sounding albums.
If you’re like me, then this blog is for you! It’s a list of electronic albums that I think are worth checking out.
I’ll update this list every month with a new batch of albums that have caught my attention.
I hope you find it useful!**
We all love electronic music, but there is so much to listen to! So I have compiled a list of what I think are the best electronic albums to check out.
1. “Amp” by Imogen Heap
I think this album is an instant classic. It’s a mixture of pop, electronica and trip-hop that really works. The songs are catchy and creative, especially the first single “Hide and Seek”. You can listen to clips from the album here: http://www.last.fm/music/Imogen+Heap/Amp.
2. “Karn Evil 9” by Emerson, Lake and Palmer
ELP’s magnum opus is an amazing concept album about a futuristic world with some awesome prog rock keyboard work by Keith Emerson, who was one of the first electronic music pioneers in the 1970s before it became mainstream (in fact his synthesizers were so big at one time that you needed a roadie to carry them for you!). The songs are long epics like their previous albums but they have more structure here than on Tarkus or Trilogy; this record really shows off their talents as musicians while telling a compelling story through great lyrics written by Greg Lake (who also wrote “Lucky Man”).
And just like that, we’ve come to the end of another year. It’s been a good one for electronic music, with new artists making some interesting debuts and well-known artists releasing more creative material. I’ve gathered ten albums here (in no particular order) that I believe are worth checking out if you haven’t already heard them.
I’d love to hear what you think about the list, and what your own top albums are for 2010!
1. Janelle Monae – The ArchAndroid
Janelle Monae has been getting a lot of buzz this year, and this sophomore album is a wonderful example of why. It’s an ambitious concept album inspired by Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, and it combines elements of jazz, soul, hip-hop, electropop and rock in such a way that it comes off as refreshingly original.
2. Kode9 & The Spaceape – Black Sun
The long awaited followup to “Memories of the Future” is here, and it’s just as dark as it is beautiful. This album has more tracks than “Memories,” but there’s still plenty of space in each one for Spaceape’s haunting vocals to shine through the murky backdrop that Kode9 paints with his signature
We all have our preferences in music. Some like rock, some rap and others classical. Electronic music is another one that is slowly but surely gaining popularity.
Electronic music is a genre of music that makes use of electronic musical instruments and electronic technology to produce the sound. There are many different types of electronic music and most of them fall under the following categories: house, trance, techno, drum and bass, dubstep etc.
Electronic music became popular in the ’80s with the advent of synthesizers and samplers. Synthesizers are instruments that produce sound by generating an electrical signal which is then converted into sound waves by loudspeakers. It can imitate a wide range of sounds such as stringed instruments, brass instruments, organs and drums.
