Here's my history,
i'm always hit or miss with electronic acts. I have a love hate relationship with it for some reason. I used to go to raves and just loved loved loved hardcore. There was this guy Nicky Fingers who used to blow me away then he died in the mid to late 90's from heroin. I always loved Portisehead (not exactly electronic though they use a dj right?), the Orb and Orbital were good. I used to watch Liquid MTV and they used to have a killer show called AMP. My favorite video of all time was "The Box" by Orbital. Only recently have I tried to get into a little bit more. I have "buriel". It's decent stuff. I love Daft Punk, but I have no clue about half the DJ's out there. Tiesto really sucked. I don't really dig Oakenfeld.
I guess I would like to know what hardcore dj's are still out there. Is that even still a genre of electronic? I love the NIN sounding stuff.
Anyway, help me out, who to see this year based on those tastes.
As far as other acts this year i'm into Portishead, The national, Waters, Love and Rockets, Tegan and Sara and so on and so forth but i'm looking for electronic recommendations based on my taste.
