Essential Listening

Want to broaden your knowledge of computer music? Listen to the following tracks, each one has been chosen to highlight a particular technique or development.

Donna Summer – I feel love.

The track that started it all, almost by chance. Giorgio Moroder syncs a Moog to a click track and history is made.

Daft Punk – Around the World

The French Disco/House/Dance robots that upped the bar for everyone else in terms of production values.

Faithless – Insomnia

The masters of trance who inspired a generation.

Aphex Twin – Windowlicker

Like glitched-up beats, weird sound effects, heavy processing? Aphex Twin was there before almost everyone else.

Orbital – Halcyon On and On

A chilled out dance anthem.

Prodigy – Breathe

Aggressive, controversial, visionary.

Fat Boy Slim – The Rockafeller Skank

Timestretching? Fat Boy Slim got there first.
