Author Comments: 

*Top 100 releases.
*Genres/subgenres/styles: Ambient, Drone, Glitch, Noise, IDM, Drum n' Bass....
*Excluded: electro + improv.
*A maximum of 2 albums per artist.

I'm a little surprised not to see Biosphere or Supersilent represented on this list. Thoughts?

EDIT: I've been starving to find a good source for electronic recommendations, so this list is a veritable goldmine.

Biosphere's "Substrata" definitely should be somewhere on that list, thanks for reminding me. And about Supersilent, they are an incredible band, but I decided to exclude all electronic records that involve improvisation as the core of their music, so that's why they are not here, but I will include a few albums on my 00s jazz/improv list.

Thank you for your comments.
