    What songs got you into electronica?

    As the title asks, which songs did you listen to that stuck with you and forced you to branch out and eventually lead you to really get into electronica?

    I personally started listening to:
    1: DJ Tiesto's Trance Energy X-Mix 2003
    2: Paul van Dyk's "Crush" and "For an Angel"
    3: Infected Mushroom's "Heavyweight" and "Jeenge".

    Many songs but the really popular ones at the time that I recall:

    Paul van Dyke - "For an Angel"
    Tiesto - "Adagio for strings" & "Lethal industry"

    Used to listen to them over and over again.

    Afrika Bambaata for electro, and, well... The track Skeleton Dust by Dub Crookz has forever captured my heart into the world of dubstep.

    To this day I still don't really enjoy the traditional "new-disco" electronica sound, but what got me interested in electronic music of any form were NIN, KMFDM, Rob Zombie, Static X and Skinny Puppy/OhGr. I loved how they fused the music I was comfortable with at the time (rock) with avant garde soundscapes and otherworldly drums.

    yea i got into it from the game wipeout 3, had a sick soundtrack, with under the influence by the chemical brothers, kittens by underworld, know where to run by orbital, some of the best ive heard to this day, and the albums they come from are just as good, but also before that or around that time, the whole electronica wave got me interested in that kind of stuff, but these were the real old days where if you wanted to hear something youd tune in to the radio endlessly (as i did since i was like 9 and had no money), you bought the album, or waited 3 hours to download a song with napster lol, so i didnt get too far into it until i got high speed internet lol. ahah actually the first cd i got was version 2.0 by garbage, which is a solid electronic pop album. other than that the matrix opened my eyes to industrial-like sounds like nine inch nails and drum and bass, and then i discovered aphex twin and loved listening through the tons of layers of complexity in it and stuff, and on the opposite end of complex beats id gotten into the repetitive trance sounds of tiesto, and i too listened to lethal industry and traffic tons of times ahah
