    Haven't heard the new Eno disc, just a couple streaming tracks that were interesting but not (at the time) compelling. Looking forward to giving the whole thing a listen.

    Just now...
    Richard Pinhas - Metal/Crystal (with Wolf Eyes and Merzbow, and a bunch of former Heldon compatriots)

    Love Richard Pinhas and Heldon. Haven't heard Metal/Crystal yet though.

    At the moment it's EXPO '70 - SONIC MESSENGER.

    In another effort to expand my sphere of listening, today I shall mostly be listening to hip--hop. Any recommendations would be much appreciated. At the moment it's

    FabricLive.26 (Mixed by The Herbaliser)
    The World According to RZA [Various artists from around Europe - mostly Sweden, France and Germany]
    The RZA Presents: Afro Samurai The Soundtrack [lots of soul in places, but I love the main theme. I wish he'd release a version longer than 30 seconds]
    Jay Electronica - Act I: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge) [very interestingly produced and around 15 minutes long]

    Oh, and having recently dug through the ambient music thread, I discovered Stars Lost Your Name, listened to the free stream and was so impressed I promptly bought the damn thing off bandcamp, all within 10 minutes. I love / hate the internet.

    Paradise-PAINT IT BLACK

    and currently KMFDM - Brimborium

    According to the Last.FM account I made on the 1st ( meaning I've only had it for a little over a week, meaning also that I have no clue how accurate its summation of my collection and habits is ):

    "I'm into electronic, hip-hop, drum and bass, dubstep and experimental, including:
    Dieselboy, oOoOO, Daedelus, Salem, Modern Witch, Cadence Weapon, Technical Itch, Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead, Grooverider, Alix Perez, White Ring, Hybrid, Goldie, Atari Teenage Riot, Gorillaz, Lupe Fiasco, †‡†, Company Flow, Calyx, DJ Premier, Lolita Storm, Burial, Flying Lotus, The Prodigy, Balam Acab, ?NO VIRGIN?, LA Vampires & Zola Jesus, Sneaker Pimps, Deltron 3030, TOKiMONSTA, Limewax, The Bloody Beetroots, Bomb 20, Felix da Housecat, UNKLE, Handsome Boy Modeling School, Current Value, Madlib, Riow Arai, El Grupo Nuevo de Omar Rodriguez Lopez, How to Destroy Angels, Major Lazer & La Roux, Portishead, Pixies, Dom & Roland, Photek, Roni Size, Hive, El-P.

    Check out my music taste:"

    I find it weird that the "Paste Your Taste" option asks you to connect to your Facebook profile yet it simultaneously offers no real Facebook connectivity, and since I already hate that Facebook usurps enough hours of my day and all I use it for is annoying linkspam anyway it's a bit of a piddle, innit?
    I also have probably been listening to Roni Size / Reprazent's "In The Mode" more than anything it listed yet it hasn't scrobbled it nearly as much. Scrobbling is weird.

    today I shall mostly be listening to hip--hop. Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

    Oh man, have I got some things you should hear.

    My personal taste in hiphop is a bit on the weird end of the spectrum; I'm 28, and at the tender age of tender age of 6 in 1988 my uncle passed on and left me a boom box, a pair of Osh Kosh B'Gosh overalls and his cassette collection, with Run DMC, Mr. Magic dubs, Whodini, Boogie Down Productions, old Marley Marl stuff, you name it. As the 90s came about I got into the Native Tongues stuff, which is all excellent, Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, but the guys who came along and were entirely too street for a hood nerd like me ruined it for me. Onyx, Nas, Biggie, etcetera. I began to crave weirdness in my hiphop. Luckily, there was college radio. Guys from the ghetto with MENSA memberships and guys who rap about afrofuturism and cyberpunk and kung fu movies and things that generally don't make it to the mainstream ( although, really, is there a mainstream anymore? ). Anyhoos, my recommendations:

    Company Flow - Funcrusher Plus, Little Johnny From The Hospital
    Cannibal Ox - Iron Galaxy
    Mr. Lif - Enters The Colossus, I Phantom
    El-P - Fantastic Damage, I'll Sleep When You're Dead, weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3
    Del & Automator - Deltron 3030
    Dr. Octagon ( Kool Keith ) - Dr. Octagonycologist
    Mr. Nogatco ( Kool Keith ) - Nogatco Rd.
    Killah Priest - Heavy Mental
    Saul Williams - Amethyst Rockstar
    Ras Kass - Soul On Ice
    Jeru The Damaja - The Sun Rises In The East, Wrath Of The Math
    Gravediggaz - Six Feet Deep, The Pick The Sickle And The Shovel
    Immortal Technique - The 3rd World
    Organized Konfusion - Stress: The Extinction Agenda
    Aesop Rock - Labor Days, Bazooka Tooth, None Shall Pass
    Eyedea And Abilities - E&A
    Nonphixion - The Future Is Now
    Jedi Mind Tricks - The Psycho-Social, Chemical, Biological & Electro-Magnetic Manipulation of Human Consciousness
    Canibus - Rip The Jacker, For Whom The Beat Tolls
    Busdriver - Jhelli Beam
    MC Paul Barman - It's Very Stimulating, Paullelujah!, Thought Balloon Mushroom Cloud
    Mike Ladd - Welcome To The Afterfuture
    Chino XL - Here To Save You All
    Atmosphere - Seven's Travels
    Phi life Cypher - Millenium Metaphors
    Sage Francis - A Healthy Distrust
    Sir Menelik - Cyclops 4000
    Last Emperor - The Storyteller
    Cadence Weapon - Breaking Kayfabe
    Toki Wright - BlackMale
    P.O.S. - Never Better
    Rakim - The 18th Letter
    Juggaknots - Clear Blue Skies

    And if you're looking for instrumental stuff, older Madlib, Metal Fingers ( MF Doom alias ), Samiyam, Nosaj Thing, J Dilla, Flying Lotus, RJD2, Tokimonsta are excellent.
    And no matter what anyone tells you, don't waste your time on Lil Wayne, he's rubbish.

    Confusing English Electronic Music in the shape of Moon Wiring Club's new mixtape:

    DL/stream here. Track listing also at the link.

    other than that, I've been mainly listening to a hodge podge of Apollo Brown instrumentals, Kurobear/Kid Caustic (thanks to @texture for the heads up on him), Black Milk, Das Racist, BlackRoc, and Hectic's Vector Ep (another of @TExture's recommendations there..)

    As it says on my profile, Hip hop is the love of my life.

    If you want to listen to some fine new hip-hop, then the links for Das Racist (best new hip-hop act of 2010 for me), Apollo Brown an Black Milk I have placed up there ^ will do for now.

    Otherwise, the list given by @antistigma is pretty comprehensive - but I'd particularly like to add J-DILLA to the list of instrumental hip-hop greats.
