Somebody has written a compendium of all IDM produced any where in the world since 1958.  My copy arrived this weekend but it's in Japanese and I can't read it.

There's also House, Techno and Ambient in the same series, but they only go up to 2013.  Which is probably a good thing for those genres in any case.  Whereas 2018 was probably the best year for IDM ever.

Ha, no I don't think so, and I can't remember any Legowelt releases being listed in the book, but I'll check tonight.

I don't know I can't read Japanese.  But if anyone should decide I think they should be Japanese.

Sakamoto or Skrillex.  That's the binary choice I'm giving you.  There's a reason the american section in the book is the smallest.  Even Iceland has a bigger section.

That's hot. Is there a PDF somewhere? I wonder who they have listed in the Russian section (if it's there). Definitely Fizzarum

 

And why 1958 ffs? That's oddly specific.
