Hell yeah this thread rocks! Drexciya and Anthony Rother will always hold a special place for me. I'm so sick of everyone calling everything electro nowadays when it really has so little to do with actual electro... *whimper*
Trying to get this thread going, I think it could be really cool if we'll have here a massive & diverse Electro playlist, I for one love it, ever since I first heard it & I think it deserve a place here, considering the huge influence it had on the music we all hear today.
So anyway, I invite everyone with an interest in it to post up their favorite Electro tracks here.
Btw - it doesn't have to be an Electro-definer, it could be anything with electro touches (Synth-Pop, Electro-Rock or whatever..) that you like.
Electro is completely different than electronic and electronica. Electronic has more instrumental computer sounds, electronica is a mellow version of electronic music, and electro is simplified...more fun to listen to!
Artists like Cybotron, Newcleus, Bomfunk MC's, & Flying Steps are considered electro artists, but as in old skool electro. More general/modern electro artists would include Kraftwerk, Dr Lektroluv, Telex, & Joy Electric.
Pyramid Plus - Comin at ya :2gunsfiring_v1: ( 7" released in 1983, more p-funk / electrofunk / boogie than electro but so damn cool and so damn rare, there is one copy @ discogs at the moment for 325$ )
Treacherous Three - U F O (listened to this one all the time as a kid...)
