    Default Looking for dark electro

    Hi guys

    I am thinking about stretching my wings out to electro music, but most of what I've heard has been, well, way too poppy for me. I want to focus mainly on electro that is darker and edgier than the standard fare.

    So yeah, anyone have any recommendations on where to start (acts, labels, blogs, etc.) that focus on darker, more sinister styles of electro? If I had access to youtube right now I'd point you are Northborne, which is an electro act I've really been digging on.

    Well, what you guys have to say? Keep in mind I've only heard the really poppy stuff and it, well, bores me completely.

    sometimes you find very nice minimal and tech-house sounds that suit your description on Deepmixmoscow: www.deepmix.eu, depends on the day though

    I'm into dark electro as well. I'm digging Felix Cartal quite a bit.

    Nothborne is considered Dark electro? I always thought they were in the whole Industrial-techno genre with Combichrist. I think of older Skinny Puppy as Dark Electro, thus considering it a dead genre. Meh, I don't know as much about it as you may though.

    Edit: Just thought about it and was wondering if you meant Electro from the 80s - early 90s or ElectroHouse aka Electro / Hard Electro?

    Well if I have trouble defining what genre the music is, I'll just go to last.fm or beatport and pretty much have their definition. Saves time and helpme find exactly what Im looking for.

    Northborne would def. be in industrail-techno with combichrist. I'm nor really sure what you could classify dark electro as, though. Maybe some of :wumpscut:'s stuff? Tracks from Embryodead and maybe Bosses Junges Fleisch could be dark electro, I suppose.
    I'm not good at things, but I like to pretend I am.

    YES! Thats why I asked if he was talking about Electro (Original) or Electro House (Nick named Electro). I figure Dvls knows all about some older Electro.
