Extralife

Your favorite album of all time

LP5 is IDM that I would use to communicate with extraterrestrials to demonstrate that humans can also be extreme.

 

MF DOOM - MM.. Food

Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein

Freddie Gibbs and Madlib - Piñata

This is hard:

 

Arthur Russell - World of Echo

Arthur Russell - Love is Overtaking Me

 

Druqks

ICYBD

 

opn - Replica, Rifts

 

Bogdan - Samurai Math Beats

 

Automatic Tasty - Tweeter's Midlife Crisis

 

Owen Gilbride - Trax III

 

Nasenbluten - You're Going to Die

 

Edit: I talked with my wife about this, and it's interesting, because you have to be pretty pragmatic to even begin to put together a list like this, because it is so conditional. There are albums that I have heard countless times, but I dont ever really listen to on my own, and therefore didnt make my list. Comedy music, like Flight of the Conchords or Weird Al fits this bill, as well as a lot of rock/indie stuff I grew up with. I would also have a different list for stuff that is the most fun to dance to.

I like Mu-ziq btw. He was an IDM prodigy and still makes lush tracks like Mountain Island Boner. His skills and artistic pedigree are incendiary.

i don't understand not liking µ-ziq. tango n vectif and lunatic harness were formative for me when i first started listening to electronic music. he has an ear for melody that very few of these artists possess and his music is also kind of funny. probably the closest to aphex in that regard.

Ya agree with you guys, all depends on my mood / phases. Lately a few of my favs have been:

 

Ninety - 808 State

Never Let Me Down - Bowie

Black Tie, White Noise - Bowie

Blade Runner OST

Hackers OST

The Game OST

Ocean Drive - Hori Katsumi Band

Call of The Wild - Victor Feldman's Generation Band

SOSW - Polygon Window

After The Playboy Mansion - Dimitri From Paris

Anthology - Underworld

 

SAW II & ICBYD is hard to not add to the list for me as well because they are eternal haha

Fuck yeah. I havent gotten fully into this one yet, but I listened through it on YouTube or something after that awesome article on IDM in Miami, and it sounds amazing. Everything by Phoenicia is classic

... 'Orbus Terrarum' the Orb ...

Me too, easily.

plus, "Mother Fist and Her Five Daughters" by Marc Almond & the Willing Sinners 

Paul Simon's "Rhythm of the Saints" and Petar Dundov "Ideas from the Pond" -

all most played, most joy, consistently...

Always curious when someone does not what their favourite might be, but I suppose only time can tell...

Who would've guessed huh? haha

 

Preemptive Strike comes very close as well for me. Just about any early Shadow stuff is masterpiece material.
