    Ummm, let's see.

    Raver since early 90s, been to more shows at the Nike Pavilion than I can count, plenty of other parties in ATL (long live Sol), and on my Pandora account I have a station made from The prodigy, the Trance shared station, the Techno shared station, ....

    Does that count? :p

    I dislike it. However, that statement perhaps requires explanation.

    Some bands use synthesizers to create parts they cannot play or they cannot afford good musicians to play the parts. Yet they tell me that playing the "banjo" on keyboards is just as good and exactly the same thing as a real instrument because the sound is the same. As a player, I disagree.

    I love synthesizers as a teaching tool or for creating and editing printed scores for musicians.

    Occasionally, however, I'll find some interesting music with qualities I find interesting. At one time I despised most electronic music. But now, I am on the lookout for clever and creative efforts.

    While I'll agree with you on the use of electronic synthesizers to replace musical instruments, I think you should also realize that electronica is more than just 'replacement' - there are full genres that are simply unable to be produced using normal instrumentation in any way, shape, or form.

    I understand that, having watched electronic music change over the decades. My interest started with the Theremin and I worked through my Moog and Paia years, ending up designing circuits that sucked. Now I play straight acoustic or electric banjo and odd traditional instruments.

    I found that there are lots of cool things out there in the world of electronic music and it is growing on me. Especially those sounds that as you say, cannot be produced with traditional instruments.

    Electronic music is probably around 99% of what I listen to. I mostly listen to tech house, prog house, and psychedelic/goa trance. But even the small amount of hip hop and "rock" I listen to has elements of electronica in it (Radiohead, Die Antwoord, etc.).

    Shpongle is the all-time best electronic "live" band for me - truly futuristic yet classic music. Try "Tales of the Inexpressible" first.

    I'm a heavy metal man, actually very eclectic... I listen to just about anything from Frank Zappa to Mobile deathcamp to the Orb... One thing that i've been listening to for about a week straight...

    The Orb, featuring David Gilmour (from pink floyd)

    I only really got into the popular stuff like Crystal Method, Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, DJ Keoki and a few others.

    I just got the new Big Chocolate album though and it's pretty effing badass.

    Lucky :) I never got to see them as DFA1979. However I have seen them live separately; as MSTRKRFT as well as Sebastien Grainger's solo stuff (Sebastien Grainger and The Mountains).

    if you ever do get the chance to see them, make sure they're doing a live PA and not a DJ set ;) hearing them force-slam one track into another an entire night was enough to make me bonkers. i've seen them perform live though and that was a total different story...

    Living in the DC area, I've gotten to see several of the most popular trance/house DJs in the world, most notably Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyke. Most of the electronica I listen to is the sets I hear live and download later.

    As far as studio albums, I'm not a huge fan but Tiesto's "In Search of Sunrise 3" and van Dyke's "The Politics of Dancing" and "Out There and Back" are all worth listening to (over and over).
