After watching this video (linked from the æ article "Retro") I got an idea to make a much better compilation video about the '80s, only this time about electronic music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56Fx9ksBr80

Here are some ideas I have...

1980
Yellow Magic Orchestra - "Behind the Mask": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DSue36BpH8
(hey, if the original video got to count "Cars" under 1980, I get to count this...they're both actually from 1979)

1981
Patrick Cowley - "Menergy": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46DiMfrz0bg

1982
Afrikaa Bambaataa and Soul Sonic Force - "Planet Rock": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_vLzsG2TCU

1983
Herbie Hancock - "Rockit": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nK0Pi4wC8Hk
Cybotron - "Clear": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I280cxs2jvA

1984
Digital Emotion - "Go Go Yellow Screen": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClLYw2XZodk
Newcleus - "Jam on It": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hXPu32FuE4

1985
Freestyle - "Don't Stop the Rock": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfXKkNo7YZ8
Mantronix - "Needle to the Groove": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LT4VgyfLPKk

1986
Marshall Jefferson - "Move Your Body": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAR8cq5Bl94
Robert Owens - "Bring Down the Walls": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeYYG_2kYEs

1987
Mr. Fingers - "Can You Feel It": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLQscQ3cyoQ
Rhythim Is Rhythim - "Strings of Life": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pahJh2r8Hg0
Phuture - "Acid Tracks": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKbLI8EufNo

1988
D-Mob - "We Call It Acieed": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEdiOBz4zeM
Inner City - "Big Fun": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omfiVkkJ1OU
The KLF - "What Time Is Love": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frd5YmSjjII
Humanoid - "Stakker Humanoid": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lW8TCK7A0Kc
Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock - "It Takes Two": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IBRbzf3Fws

1989
Tyree - "Turn Up the Bass": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHEde5U9pXs
Kariya - "Let Me Love You (Rebuilt)": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTs_GliroUY
Black Box - "Ride on Time": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lOb799cTxM
Final Cut with True Faith - "Take Me Away": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hO3FUfs6iYA
Looney Tunes - "Just As Long As I Got You": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wSfpw2Y16s
808 State - "Pacific 707": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HMt-42LAQE
Nine Inch Nails - "Down in It": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrrEo3hZABU
Meat Beat Manifesto - "Radio Babylon": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ILqfpDD6XE

This list is of course more heavily weighted toward the end of the '80s (nearly half of the 27 tracks came from '88 or '89, nearly a third from just '89) because that's when music was getting better; also I saw a similar video about the '70s but it would be a lot harder to make an electronic-music-themed video for that decade: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVRC5BnNg8A
...and as for the '90s and later? There's enough material to make at least two compilation vidz about just 1997 using only breakbeat electronic music

i'm not sure what's electronic about "it takes two"

but you could easily make an electronic-themed video about the '70s, you'd just have to get a bit more international

neu!, devo, etc.

^reliance on loops and sampling

Anyway I think I did get very international: YMO is Japanese, Digital Emotion is Dutch, Black Box is Italian, and D-Mob, The KLF, Humanoid (now known as the Future Sound of London), 808 State, and Meat Beat Manifesto are British; the rest are American.

Then again the acts from neither the US nor the UK were tokens; the bulk of the good stuff comes out of those two nations, with the balance shifting to the UK during the '90s.


On an unrelated note, finally the most underrated track ever by The Bird and the Bee is available on YouTube, "What's in the Middle" from Ray Guns Are Not Just the Future (2009): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmt97DAaE68

I wish Radio 1 were available in the States, perhaps just an hour as part of the BBC World Service to follow The Strand.

you can get it on XM/Sirius, but it's syndicated (instead of being played in as it's aired GMT it's played in EST, maybe local but definitely at least EST so 12 noon broadcast there comes on here at noon when it's 5 PM in UK)

1993 The Prodigy - "Rhythm of Life": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-5idbKwbdc
1994 "Ruiner" from Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtP_HnZgVGw

Dubstep, then some house, then a little DnB, and then more dubstep.

anyone subscribe and listen to the youtube channel MrSuicideSheep?

puts together some very chill mixes. Uses some nice artwork and photography for the "video" portion of his mixes. Been really enjoying it lately.

seems he chooses the track list, has it mixed by someone else, and then he publishes the final piece.

Here, Dave demolishes the argument that electronic music doesn't require talent and somehow lacks "soul."
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ywnAUDz-as
Here, Dave talks essentially about how similar modern pop music is to "serious" electronic dance music.
