Icon4 Recommend Free Electronica/IDM/Experimental/Downbeat

Hi there IDM heads

There's loads of music on the net that can be legally downloaded for free on netlabel sites. However, it's difficult to discover great music from all the mediocre music out there. Anybody got any suggestions for some amazing yet relatively unknown artists? The kind of music I love is melodic, emotive, engaging idm, ambient, intelligent d n b and breaks.

The last artist I came across that really blew me away was Crisopa - his stuff is free.



Cheers

Chris

Heard of Mosaik? He's released on kahvi and monotonik, awesome melodic ambient/electronica stuff.

Trifonic (vocal/idm/ambient/dubstep/dnb). Trey are amazing! You can download their first album "Emergence" (2008) and some new single tracks for free in HQ mp3 format.

Re: Amazing artists that give their music away for free

Ive been spamming this site posting these guys wherever I can

ANgR MgMT Check out Apocalypse ELE, Thats his best album imo. 'Energy Cascade' is my fave song by him and sounds like exactly what you are looking for, I highly recommend checking that out

Modem He has free ep's available to download. The track, 'What It Feels Like to Discover Why I Shouldn't Have Trusted You' is a beast of a track.

ANgR MgMT Myspace

Modem Myspace

Seriously, some epic music coming from these guys

Candlenine pointed out this artist to me called Totakeke a while back, really good & high quality music.. He has a free album that's a compilation of tracks from various other albums you can download for free here:

The old work of Wisp, actually everything from the netlabel Earstroke Records is incredibly well...I very like Milieu, Tonepoem and Wisp of it;

I run a netlabel for IDM/Experimental artists and the ones on there are great. And their music is free too.
