Wiley's 'Treddin on thin Ice' LP is so fucking good. Once i heard it, i understood why all the hype about UK "grime" rap.

I was really into House and early Techno when I lived in Detroit in the late 80s early 90s. Kevin Saunderson, Juan Atkins, Derrick May (The Belleville Three) and DJ Carl Craig use to spin at underground clubs like The Majestic Theatre and The Warehouse and my friend Marc's house parties on Trumbull.
I guess that's technically Electronic music, no?
I remember hearing Mr Lee's "Get Busy" for the first time. That song alone got me interested in House.
"New Jack City" is an underappreciated soundtrack....
Spankrock has a thing going on with Gruff Rhys called Neon Neon which is rocking my world right now... a tribute to cocaine fuelled 80's trash. The new Crystal Castles is great. I was on a huge no-wave, electro kick for a while but now I'm in love with stuff like Glass Candy, Black Devil Disco, Hercules and Love Affair and Prins Thomas (whose Cosmic Galactic Prism is the best mix I've ever heard.) I think my brother would kick the shit out of me if he knew I was listening to disco....
