NYU music technology professor Ethan Hein has put together an electronic music tasting menu for classical musicians and others who are unfamiliar with the genre. 

  • Delia Derbyshire
  • Morton Subotnick
  • The Beatles
  • Donna Summer & Georgio Moroder
  • Brian Eno & David Byrne
  • Herbie Hancock
  • Run-DMC
  • The Orb
  • Aphex Twin
  • J Dilla

It’s a great sampler.

(Speaking of proto-techno pioneers, have you heard Ten Ragas to a Disco Beat, Ethan? Charanjit Singh was making acid house before there was acid house.)
