    i'm not a big fan of the genre, but I do like stuff by the Orb, Meatbeat Manifesto and Josh Wink.

    for something kind of different you may want to try Cornelius, guy out of japan, he has 2 discs out, kind of techno-y in a sample kind of way, not so much a boom-boom kind of way. the album Point is excellent, and also available in CD or DVD with cool visuals and 5.1 surround sound.

    I listen to a lot of Paul Van Dyk and Armin Van Buuren mixes and never get tired of them. You could also try the Godskitchen series of UK club mix CDs. If you're looking for something a little harder, try the Frantic Euphoria CD mixed by Anne Savage, or for something hard and different, look for anything by Kai Tracid or Tomcraft.

    Give me a hint, a mood, something...

    you could go good mainstream, try Nick Warren mix CDs, you could go ambient with The Orb or Ultramarine; you could go to the source 808 State (start with Utd State 90, yes I know it came out 15 years ago but it still blows the doors off new stuff); then if you're feeling adventurous you can try Aphex Twin but don't be put off by the drill n bass stuff (unless you like that, then check out Squarepusher), because old Richard James in his many incantations has put out some truly spectacular music without making you feel like you're in an auto shop.

    Orbital is top quality production. Most will point you towards the early stuff which is fine, but In Sides is very good.

    I also recommend Moon Safari by Air.

    Or if you want to travel to another dimension, go Boards of Canada or Casino versus Japan.

    Happy Hunting.

    One bit of advice, take it or leave it, stay away from any sort of...club, raver, "best techno" type packaged garbage. There is a huge difference between music made exclusively for clubs and true electronic artists. [​IMG]

    If you saw the car chase sequence in Matrix Reloaded and liked the accompanying music, you might also like other works by the group involved, Juno Reactor (granted in this case they teamed with composer Don Davis).

    Juno Reactor, to my ears, has a 'world music' bent to their electronic music. One of my favourites of theirs is 'Pistolero' which features spaghetti western samples and similarly-styled guitar twanging.
