I was just wondering if you know about any quality electronic music blogs. not them ponsy house and electro blogs or all of them millions of dubstep and dnb blogs. more like IDM, glitch and the sorts. Or just really good quality stuff yeah.
I've just started blogging meself, you see. And I would really like some ideas for quality acts and ways to promote stuff.
Well if you have any ideas, please let me know. cheers
I have a perfect blog. There are some amazing, top quality japanese musicians in the line up. Most is Japanese IDM. Its really amazing, too. They know there shit - its very, very popular there. I've found many of my favorites musicians from this site:
Wow, this site is such a godsend; I've found so much amazing material over the last couple of months on this site from posts et cetera. Music for sleeping, eating, fucking, smoking and living. Keep it up guys!
May I join in? I have a greasy little blog called Catching The Waves, in which I review free netlabel and/or Creative Commons albums. You're welcome to have a look. At the very least, you'll find links to other, better websites.
Here's what's in my RSS aggregator, music wise (I use google reader). A number of these have already been mentioned already, so please bear with me.
Analog Industries - personal blog of Chris Randall of Audio Damage plugins, as well as various industrial and electronic bands. He's a bit of a curmudgeon and a complete gear snob, but funny, insightful, and full of good info.
Create Digital Music - online magazine about electronic music. Tends to be a little fad-ish for my taste, but nonetheless required reading
The Stretta Procedure - personal blog of Matthew Davidson, musician and plug-in designer, etc. Loads of good info about making electronic music.
Get LoFi- Circuit Bending, DIY electronics, LoFi, etc. Not exactly what I use in my own music, but I'm a fan of this sort of stuff nonetheless.
Analog Suicide - I can't say I'm the biggest fan of Tara Busch's music, but she's a world class synth geek. I've been following this blog since I found an interview she did with Thighpaulsandra, one of my favorite synth players.
Audio Cookbook - Sound design and interesting experimental music stuff.
Waveformless - Seattle based electronic musician provides random stuff of interest to music geeks, as well as the occasional well written tutorial on various electronic production techniques.
Trash Audio - Focuses mainly on modular synths, but also has a very nice series of interviews focusing on the work spaces/environments of various electronic musicians.
Disquiet - Ambient/electronic focused blog... reflections and interviews. Good stuff.
rekkerd.org - Occasional reviews of new music software, but mostly news posts of new products as they become available on the market. I wade through about a dozen posts about expensive new synth VIs I can't afford, updates for products I'll never buy, and sample collections I'd never use everyday in the hopes of catching freeware plug-ins and other freebies. Its usually worth it.
Designing Sound - Not a music blog, but rather focused on sound design for movies and video games. Lots of interviews. While not all the info provided is directly applicable to making music, I still find it creatively inspiring.

Reason: Fixed links.
Just found this one today via Create Digital Music. http://nextstepaudio.com/ They have two really good beat slicing tutorial vids up. Nothing fancy and nothing you probably don't know unless you're new to audio, but nonetheless pretty impressive in a "less-is-more" sort of way.
