Of course metal is my favorite kind of music, but I also really like Electronic music. Unfortunately Electronic music has kind of gotten a bad name with things like Dubstep and remixes, but I love the more experimental stuff, IDM, Breakbeat, and ambient/trance. Some of my favorite electronic artists are Kraftwerk, Deadmau5, Eat Static, Orbital, The Orb, LOR3L3I, and I guess Bjork could be considered electronic even though she really has no one genre. Any other fans of electronic music around here?

Hmmm electronic music isn't for me, everyone has their own tastes.  My wife and my youngest son love dance and electronic music.  I love guitars, I love drums, nothing compares, my eldest son is following in his old man's footsteps.

I get called closed minded by a lot of people because I rarely venture outside of the Metal genre but I don't have the need.  Metal more than satisfies me :)

^Yeah, metal more then satisfies me too but if I'm in the right mood though I do have those few experimental electronic albums that I'll put on. Usually Kraftwerk's 'Minimum Maximum', Deadmau5's 'While (1<2)', and The Orb's 'Orblivion'. Of course though, different strokes for different folks. Smile

I do like a bit of Kraftwerk when in the mood and have a bit of a soft spot for Berlin school. I've loads of TD. Not sure whether I'd class Bjork as electronica, but her later albums are superb.

I like a decent amount of it.  Anything Berlin school, most ambient stuff, synthwave, a few more chill groups/musicians (Air, Memory Tapes, 2562, Flying Lotus, and Nerve being some favourites)

Well, I like stuff like Sphongle and Entheogenic, so definitely a fan of psybient music, but also just ambient-type music in general. Chill-out/downtempo would be quite close to that and I also like more experimental stuff like Tangerine Dream and such.

I agree, but I think that some electronica, like Sortenmuld, is pretty good. And pump up the jam, pump it up while your feet are stomping!

I like a fair amount of electronic. I've not explored the genre very in depth though.

I really like some stuff by Venetian Snares, Ulver, Aphex Twin, Bjork, The Prodigy, Gnaw Their Tongues (+Seirom, Aderlating etc). I don't listen to electronica on a regular basis, though,

Oh I forgot about Ulver!  I do prefer their Black Metal albums but Blood Inside  is so good.

I dislike most electronic, especially EDM. There is a few artists/bands that I enjoy sometimes, mostly Kraftwerk.

Electronic music can be good if it is tweeked with a bit and ends up sounding like art. However, I personally have never really been a fan of it. Those are my two cents

Depends on what you call "electronic music": I went as far as listening to the beginnings of electro-acoustic music and "musique concrete", so my views on so-called "electronic music" are somewhat biased and I tend to go to the experimental side of things.
