    Jungle/Drum and bass also goes for the UK.

    So yeah, UK 'wins' in most electronic music genres. But to say they 'have kinda always made better music than us in almost every genre--except rap,' is very arguable.

    Good thing many UK producers are moving to the US, though. So hopefully that will open a bigger market for new stuff, and we will have our own bang face festival.

    Selected Ambient 1 wasn't ambient techno? Tell it to his label.

    Sure they kept spinning--were they remotely as influential with the music they made in the 90s? No. Not hardly. And you fucking know they weren't--or you're just talking out of your ass.

    You're the bitch that ran right to Google, by the way.

    Yeah I really doubt you have anything I'm interested in. Mostly AIDS. You've still listed exactly one act, and in the process tried to go against Underworld. You're a dumb whore. Thank you.

    From the US? I don't really know many, that is why I was asking.

    Off the top of my head, I would say:

    Boom Bip
    Dntel (although his last album suuuuuucked)
    Single Cell Orchestra
    Sparrow Orange
    Thievery Corporation
    Tycho

    There are a couple of others that I think might be from the US, but I am not sure. I have a couple of others that might be classified as IDM by some, but I wouldn't put them in that category so I left them out.

    My UK list would quadruple that.

    So far you've displayed absolutely NO knowledge of anything--only claimed to have superior knowledge while expressing fucking stupid opinions.

    You don't know anything about what you're claiming to talk about. You don't. And it's kinda obvious since you apparently have only secret tastes in music.

    dude lastgreatman, you argue so much. on the internet.

    im down with just popping in every few pages and poking fun at you. not really about anything you're actually saying, cause i don't wanna read all that shit. and by the sheer volume and consistency of your posts in this thread alone, i will assume you might know a thing or two (and admittedly more than myself) about electronic music, most likely in that annoying holier than thou way that kills the party every time. and thats cool. but seriously, you're arguing a lot. on the internet.

    then ill go back to myspace and touch up my beard. send me a pm when you get your congratulatory plaque.... for something.

    Awesome, thanks! I am a fan of Prefuse (Diarreah Takes Over Your Life is my favorite song title ever) and Daedelus, and I love Casino vs Japan (didn't know they were from the US). I will look into the others, especially Nautilis.
    For your health

    No, but you havent mentioned 5 techno djs from the UK who can top those. You have the whole UK to top 5 from a city.

    My picks would be Dave Clarke, Surgeon, Ben Sims, Regis.. Dave the drummer? British murder boys? Hawtin is canadian but grew in the UK. Anyway, they are really great techno acts, but I still think they can't top the US. Spain has a great techno scene as well.

    Sorry that I can look past popularity in order to judge good music, apparently LGM can't. Seriously, the fact that someone who views the Chem Bros, Fatboy Slim, etc. as the pinnacle of 90s EDM told me to do my "research" is hilarious. Maybe you should research more than what made it onto MTV in the 90s?
    Myself, I prefer the clubs in Barcelona. But I really don't care for EDM all that much, I was merely commenting that EDM in the U.S. is not as popular, nor as innovative as the music in Europe. And I don't watch MTV, so I don't know who made it on to MTV or not. Back then I was way too into Against All Authority and Choking Victim to give a shit about techno or ravers or whatever it is you guys like to be called.

    I didn't realize Randy was my 'boy" because we both have a penchant for psychoactive substances, but your point is very well taken, his shit talking is vitriolic and hilarious. Everybody always seems to know more than their opponent, but he prides himself in his arguing skills

    I'll readily admit that I know very little about electronic music, so I try to stay out of arguments like this. Keep going for the jugular; I love watching people argue.

    Randy is funny at times but he aint too funny when he starts threads about music he really knows nothing about... I almost get embarrass for him. It has a lot to do with the "you don't know what you don't know" and I see him in a few different music threads but he's really doesn't have a clue other then the latest buzz band. I think he should just start a comedy thread and be done with it. And for him to say Punk sucked and did not matter... come on wanker!! I think Greghead knows better too
