Top 5 Genre-Bending Electronic Albums of 2012

Categories: That Was 2012


James Ferraro - Sushi
I wasn't enamored with the ringtone sheen of last year's Far Side Virtual, but Ferraro's newest is an expansion on the high-fructose, high-definition R&B of his side monikers Bodyguard and Bebetunes. Sushi is a slightly less kitschy, more warped take on commercial radio hit formulas.


Andy Stott - Luxury Problems
For someone who only recently uncovered an appreciation for dance music, Luxury Problems proved to be a swell gateway for me to enter the expanding worlds of outsider house and noise-inflected dance floor jams.

Flying Lotus "Until the Quiet Comes" was very good, but maybe that is more hip hop. Grimes album was good.

No mention of Flying Lotus, Gaslamp Killer, or Kid Koala? Boo! These albums are cool enough, but the artists i mention are weird and genre-bending, AND accessible. Just sayin....
