Before I knew "that" sound was called IDM, I was already listening to Apparat-Algorhytm

Re: Who got you into IDM?

Based on an article I read I ordered aphex twin's "I care because you do" because RDJ was the "godfather of ambient techno".

I didnt like it, I Didn't get it. Didn't get how it was ambient, I was really into Steve roach and Robert rich at the time.

I thought the cd sucked.


6 months later I figured, I bought it, may as well revisit it.


Found it brilliant.


Started following warp records.

Re: Who got you into IDM?

Bonobo was the first electronic music artist that didn't make Techno / Electro I listened to. But I was like 14-15 and wasn't really aware of the whole IDM genre and the sub-genres.

AFX was the first IDM artist I listened to (the famous things, "Come to Daddy", "Windowlicker" of course) knowing it was IDM. Not so long after I started getting into Autechre and Squarepusher wich a friend of mine introduced me to a few years ago.

Re: Who got you into IDM?

I first heard an idm song from some bedroom producer on newgrounds, thought it was rad as fuck, but didn't know what genre it was.
I found out about idm as a genre much later, and dug into aphex twin first.
