Finding music

Post by Kurt_ » Thu Jul 02, 2009 9:40 pm

Well, I really like the Chemical Brothers, and was wondering if anybody knew any similar musicians, or a way of finding similar musicians.

I use the iTunes store to find new music. Just search an artist you're interested in and then follow the related searches!

Okay let's see now...

Already listen to:
The Prodigy, Propellerheads, Rob Dougan, Daft Punk

Like:
Junkie XL (But not the type I'm looking for)
The Crystal Method (Perfect! Any more like this?)
LoFi Allstars

Don't like:
Aphex Twin (too scary)
Fatboy Slim (I just don't)
Dub Pistols (Too much rap)
Would like when high only:
Bass Nectar (They're basically a compilation of noises)

I'll give pandora.com a try later, I assume it's somewhat like that yahoo music thing a while back?

Indeed...

And here's the cover sheet for that same song. Warning again for possibly disturbing images.

Here are some of my recommendations... Not exactyla spot on the what you were looking for, but hopefully you'll like it.
There's a guy called Benn Jordan, who makes music under a host of aliases. For example:
Human Action Network - Welcome to Chicago (The Acid Anthology)
John B - In Transit - Drum and bass album with party vibe, shares some traits with house music.
Squarepusher - Go Plastic, Hello Everything, Big Loada - A lot of good stuff came from this man. Most of his stuff is (bordering to) jazz, but don't let that scare you.
Tim Exile - Pro Agonist, Listening Tree Pro Agonist is hard drum and bass, Listening Tree is more poppy, but retaining much of the same style.
Psilodump - (Many albums and singles)
Nightmares On Wax (Anything) - Classified as triphop. Pretty jazzy, chilly stuff.

Kurt, I've been meaning to ask you but forgot... Do you have MSN or some other IM? I'd like to chat with you for a bit. And maybe show you some music as well. ;)

For the more stadium rock/housey type Drum & Bass, check out In Silico by Pendulum.

Noticed nobody has mentioned that this genre of music your asking about is actually called Big Beat, so just look up Big Beat artists.

YES pendulum is awesome!
If you're already looking up In Silico also look up Hold You Colour by pendulum.
