So. What do y'all think? I'd say:
Kraftwerk
Cluster
Harmonia
Are 3 stellar & influential bands to start with and go from there...

I never was a big fan of 'electronic prog' but I do listen to Tangerine Dream at times...and every now and then I'll play some Eno while reading.

I only have one Pinhas (Metal /Crystal) but it's very good, I really need to explore some more.

Its a genre I know very little about even though I own a ton of Vangelis, Tomita,TD and JMJarre albums. Never really felt inclined to go beyond these.

erm...I find this category confusing, does anything qualify as Progressive Acoustic? I mean, a progressively minded musician will create progressive music on a synth or an acoustic guitar innit? - is it the technology that begets the music or vice versa?)Confused

Some of my favourite music is Electronic. It's really a recent interest though. I like a lot of these so called "progressive electronic" groups, but I'm more geared towards a lot classic IDM and Ambient. Like artists off of Warp records: Boards Of Canada, Aphex Twin, Flying Lotus, you know all the 90's/modern stuff.

I'm really big on Kraftwerk as well. It's just really interesting to see how Electronic music has evolved since then. Their innovation was astonishing.

Check it out:


Ambient, Chillwave, Downtempo, whatever you want to call it, this is some of best I've heard from the genre in more recent years.

I don't think it's electronic prog, it's more akin to electronica. 3'20 to 5'18 could even be played in a night club !
There is a band in this vein called Pacific!, check out their album 'Narcissus'.

Regarding electronic prog, I discovered recently a french band that is completely overlooked :


Also worth checking out : Software, Robert Schroeder, Bernd Kistenmacher, The Glimmer Room.

Nah, all his releases except for the debut have been on Warp. You'd think he'd been on his own label, but apparently not.

Apparently he only founded Brainfeeder, although he did release Duality on the label as Captain Murphy.

Oh really? I still have to check out some of those bands on the label, especially Captain Murphy.

Smile How is group considered electronic prog? I mean the tune I posted is clearly a style of Ambient, Tangerine Dream is Ambient are they not? I don't want to get fancy over genre classification, cause it's all just good music, but I just think the term is a bit flawed.

O-o-o-o-o-o-oh! ... I really do not think that anyone can recommend you any single project to start with. I mean, it all really depends on the targeted listener. If you something with a good beat to it, I'd say go for Kraftwerk. But if you are curious about whether electronic music has any depth, checkout Fripp, Eno, and Harold Budd. If you want quiet intensity, go for TD. You want something entertaining and exciting? Check out Terry Riley. Again, there is no telling.

One of the benefits I find about Progressive Electronic music is that it does not give "too much" sonic information (as rock music sometimes does, especially on forced listens). Most of the time it's minimal enough without having my head feeling some kind of a burden.

Been on a massive Venetian Snares kick lately. I'd say this track/album is a progressive mix of drum 'n bass/breakcore and classical.
But every VS album/e.p. has a different mix of elements. Check it out.
