let the record show that you spent at least part of your christmas posting to ilx about lost idm classics.

The song "Foid" by Cylob is a lost IDM classic, probably in my top 3.

Search Ilkae and Proswell for original, emotional sounds. These guys aren't really cerebral enough to fall under the IDM tag (as it is currently defined, anyway), but it is bleepy bloopy melodic electronic music that you can't dance to.

Or maybe it isn't IDM enough, more like something between blissed-out trance and electro groove.

Breakbeat-loving IDM fans might also enjoy Electric Highway by C.J. Bolland.

Cylob was the first thing that came to mind for me. I've been looking to as much as find maPOD by hab on soulseek for like the last 8 months or something, to no success in that.

Yawn (Wintermute), Wednesday, 28 December 2005 01:26 (thirteen years ago) link

Oddly enough, I broke out my copy of Icol Distan by Arovane last night. Half of the record sounded really fantastic, the other side was complete ass.

I wonder what other goodies were lurking in all those IDM records I liquidated before I left Michigan. I did not go back for Christmas this year. I am dying to see what I have in the three boxes of records I left in storage. I don't remember which ones I kept and which ones I sold. Hell, I don't even remember half of what I bought. ;)

I would also like to give biggups to Jega.

Not classic, certainly lost and idm.

Does anyone remember an artist who released a bunch of cds circa 97-99ish? One word name - possibly german.

Little to no 12"s but a lot of self releases full length cds.

Very idm, very post autechre. Not funkstorung!

I remember the existence of such an artist from old forced exposure and mdos listings but the name is lost.

wow, gang - we solved that mystery pretty fast!

In the early 2000s I ran an online community for IDM bedroom jerks. We put together some not bad compilations. Eventually we got a nascent 65DaysOfStatic onboard and started getting calls from Rephlex Records, but nothing lasting came from it. Don't know whether they're available online at all anymore, but if you're looking for IDM obscurities, you can do worse than these:

the CiM album on Ann Aimee is similarly awesome

never really got into the other two albums they put out (the dribs and lucky & easy) but peeps looking for obscure IDM might dig

I just found out about this guy recently from one of the campus radio stations and it's really cool, interesting stuff. I haven't really broken down his tuning system but I do like how it sounds. I've been listening to his latest release on Bandcamp. He's got a huge catalogue, though. Any tips on where to start with it? I see nakh and clouds were into this five years ago.

I don’t know how to embed from zing.

I had a surprisingly hard time finding Pub’s Summer. Surely that one was a classic. Shocked Pub never released anything else.

Also loved Global Goon’s Vatican Nitez - especially Stan’s Slaves. Not sure if it qualifies as lost or classic.

Another favorite of the era is Savath & Savalas’ Folk Songs for Trains, Trees, and Honey which is easy to find on Youtube so again I guess not lost anymore than the genre itself is.

Not sure how lost or classic this is, it's only from 2012 but it is a lot like melodic early 90s Black Dog. The album is really nice if a bit unfocussed; The producer's thing is mostly Detroit-inspired techno in funny / shifting time signatures.

https://youtu.be/cbI7JOwkC5A

I did a couple of computer music releases around the turn of the millennium IDM glut era, one of which is very lost, surely only a handful of copies got out there. The production is rough but the ideas still good, I think. Using generative and evolutionary processes for melodies and rhythms (but 'playing' the systems) and lots of granular synthesis and that. Probably slightly more fun than that sounds ;-)

― silent as a seashell Julia (Sund4r)

the stuff as astrobotnia and ovuca is twinkly clicky early 00s

as aleksi perala, the mental union 2CD album is really fantastic, lots of breakbeat and acid references

MU3 (as AP Musik) might be his most perfect album overall, just beautiful minimal compositions

all the colundi sequence albums are worth hearing at least, but there's so many of them that they blur together somewhat. really cool minimalist techno, kind of like a chiller jeff mills.

Usually when this thread is bumped I question whether I ever really liked IDM at all. That was pretty good though, except for the people humming tunelessly and groaning grotesquely in the background.

i'm going to get all street-team about dennis busch's work as james din a4/ pop dylan / krieghelm hundewasser etc, which never really seems to get much recognition. goofy mushroomsy kraut skank like MoM / schlammpeitziger but with malfunctioning casio / deep house M & A Oehlen undercurrents. no mean gothy metal minor key "my algorithm beats yours" but crosswired jimmy jam & terry lewis with woozin drones & shit presets. sadly the pingipung "best of" & the jan jelinek mix set on faitiche don't concentrate on the more wayward aspects but hey ho. check some out

didn't he set up Ampoule records and release a bunch of mostly his own stuff on that? maybe you weren't counting that

I absolutely kick myself for not picking up ESEL 03 when browsing in a Copenhagen record shop a few years ago. All Dennis Busch records should be buy on sight. Miss Kittin mixes in his 'Flaming Creature' with Madonna's 'Material Girl (extended mix)' on her '@ Fritz Love Radio - Love Parade 2001' mix.. devastating.

The sub bass mixing on this record is way way way ahead of its time. Micro Machines is my favorite track.

octobeard, Sunday, 24 March 2019 20:53 (eight months ago) link

Who was I listening to a while back? Interloper. I can't remember why. Their/his debut album Augur would have fit right in with Warp's Artificial Intelligence series, albeit that it came out in 1996, so it sounds a bit out-of-date. The later albums were apparently trip-hop / downtempo, but the debut was a bit like Ginger or very early Autechre. But a few years too late, which might be why it's so obscure. Also the discogs photo makes him look like Steve Winwood, which is wrong. If you want to be a successful electronic musician you have to be thin and young. Can I make a Youtube video appear in this post? Let's see.

(I've only heard that one preview track but I'm excited so I thought I'd give it a plug. Hadn't realised Schematic was still putting stuff out, and looks like it's not all the hypertechnical glitch stuff of old if Proswell and Crash Course In Science are on there - any other recommendations from their bandcamp?)
