Any suggestions? smile

i like Drexciya (and their other projects), Kraftwerk..
jeremisssx
Yep, Drexciya is awesome, keep going back to it, always and always...

As you might know, Gerald Donald (former Drexciya) is still in business, and have regular collaborations with The Exaltics for exemple (under Gerald's aliases like Der Zyklus, Heinrich Mueller, Rudolf Klozinger). They also have a "group" in common, Project STS-31 : really great stuff.
Last album of Donald, under Dopplereffekt alias, is a masterpiece for me. It's called Cellular Automata, but maybe you already knew it...

The Exaltics label is Solar One Music. Make sure to check releases on this, especially the ERP one, and also Luxus Varta, who is a new name in the game. I had chance to meet him, a true believer definitely : https://soundcloud.com/luxusvarta/losquato-feat-paris-the-black-fu?in= luxusvarta/sets/rosenhan-experiment-intra002

ERP, also known as Convextion, make extremely good lp's. It's rare things in Electro. VC-118A too. Both more in the ambient side of the genre.

Federico Leocata released some great tracks. The EP called Zarathustra is awesome. Dopplereffekt/Kraftwerk vibes...

Privacy is a project to know if you like Electro with a modern twist. The EP on Klackson is great : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDvobkKyvTs

Lake Haze is to consider. Name of the project is a direct tribute to a Drexciya track, and this track's title is quiete clear too : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UI2zCex4Ndk

Morphology are in the business for some time now, and each stuff they released so far are top notch : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JH1Cbd5MCM&index=14&list=FL-Ro4cTp-eG DFq4PrLxYEhQ&t=0s

214 is a great project too, really emotionnal stuff : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXIXFJ2IGm8&index=42&list=FL-Ro4cTp-eG DFq4PrLxYEhQ&t=0s

Also, forgot about Dj Stingray. True Drexciyan heritage here, in his dj sets, and even in his productions. Check the lp on Weme Records (another great label too).

Check labels like Brokntoys, Stilleben, Central Processing Unit, Creme Organization, Shipwrec, Cultivated Electronics, Last Known Trajectory, Clone, Abstract Forms. Bunker records and its Panzerkreuz sublabel for extreme/raw stuff.

Hope this helps !

Nice list jeremisssx, thanks, plenty to check out!

I would add Koova, who is a forum member here and is part of London Modular Alliance - and a lovely chap, I'm a big fan of his stuff:

Jacen Solo put out a really beautiful album in 2005



A Drexciya release jeremisssx didn't mention is Shifted Phases ‎- The Cosmic Memoirs Of The Late Great Rupert J. Rosinthrope. Actually my favourite release.



Aphex Twin put out some nice melodic techno. Of course there are the other Detroit producers like Derrick May who released a lot of melodic techno.

You should listen to the entire back catalog of Delsin records, a great label and sub-labels for melodic techno.

Let me know if you want more ideas...

Heres a just few current electro bits Im enjoying at the moment.

The exhaltics label was mentioned above this is on it, its great https://solaronemusic.bandcamp.com/album/humanity-plus

This ep is brilliant!


I love this one, almost a boards of Canada vibe to it, whole release is excellent!


This release is pretty good, think its Jimmy Edgar.
https://ultramajic.bandcamp.com/album/unsolved-mysteries
the bad producer
Great stuff!

My personal favourite, possibly ever, is this:

JakeE
This could do go for ever haha

Ordeal x on that release is my favourite.

Analogical Force is an incredible label that has not been mentioned yet, particularly James Shinras release's.

Jenson Interceptor needs to be checked out also!

Steffi's albums on ostgut ton are essential aswell.

It could! There is so much out there. I forgot to mention on the electro tip a great late 90s early 2000s label was Electrolux.

https://www.discogs.com/label/631-Elektrolux

That Innershades track has a very 80s feel to it. Speaking of which, I just had the remastered John Foxx Metamatic CD set delivered. With that album he really set the post-apocalyptic urban landscape mood found in a lot of electro.
acidbob
You know paul blackford, Shinra, Photodementia, Rutherford who is also a wiggler?
dubonaire
So is Robert Morley. Andrea Parker’s co- producer

jeremisssx
Yep, Touchin' Bass is a great label !

Really dug the Rutherford and Koova ep's on brokntoys when they got released. For me, it's really one of the best label of the moment when it comes to melodic electro !

My favourite ep of the label, is actually kind of a compilation, with the great Eargoggle on it ! And also Obergman and Kan3da. Here, a couple of tracks from this compilation :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBR_-9AI0a4
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPS1sMNL4Sk
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wB1FhAcqjPM
Another track from Kan3da - On the Acidlab label, which is really neat

Forgot to mention one of my favourite project of the moment, DJ Stingray / Gerald Donald / Pénélope as NRSB-11. Here is some tracks, a really great album, top quality stuff, as always from Donald and Stingray :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROjX1jPGIyE
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQozCVZCRKM

Yep, discovered Analogical Forces few months ago, really really cool stuff ! Another great electro label from Spain is Fundamental Records, run by Alek Stark. Well, just a look at this release, it speaks for itself : https://www.discogs.com/fr/Various-Time-Capsule-5th-Anniversary-808-Bo x/release/11495064

David, not Robert.

Yeah, Solar One has so much stuff I need to check out....more money & time needed though as they have a a lot of releases. Out of the few I have, the Ancient Lights ( Hubble Telescope Series Vol. 2 ) by ERP is my favorite, I like alot of what he puts out, including the Convextion project.

Lots of good stuff to check out here! Only thing I could add to this is a techno/electro/acid project named Ekman, check out Primus Motor...it's almost all I've been listening to lately...love the distortion he adds to certain parts:

Yep. Oops. I don't know where Robert came from.

By the way electro heads - Andrea Parker's DJ-Kicks mix is something special.

Oh yeah, Electronome is great, got this record on vinyl, literally the heaviest pressing I have haha !
Viewlexx is a great label, stuff from Gesloten Cirkel are really solid too...

Sorry didn't see this. Ai was a great label. Claro Intelecto's Neurofibro was an excellent album. His latest album Exhilarator is a bit hit and miss though.

Got a couple of the Plant 43/ Datassettes splits.

Global Communications Keongaku is a great chill record, but the last track is a bit more uptempo (still relatively speaking):
