New, and very exciting!

I’ve been thinking for a while we need an EDM/electronic music thread. I like the variety of the What are you listening to thread, but I’ve been digging the EDM recently.
Hopefully other peeps are with me on this, like maybe @MysteryConman, @goofyballer, @StimAbuser? Others?
One thing though–I’m not an expert, so I don’t know the names for all the genres or what’s considered cool or trashy or whatever. Where I’m at is: if it makes my head bob or butt move, or sounds cool, or preferably all of the above, I’m liking it. So hopefully we can keep the thread a judgement-free (mostly) zone (lol)?
So recently the nuclear bomb in terms of getting me bopping around like an idiot is drum and bass. Something about the dnb beat is just so propulsive. Boom—chick, boom-chick, Boom—chick, boom-chick. I don’t know how to write it but you know what I’m talking about hopefully!
I’m down with what I think of as old-school “jungly” dnb, to more modern melodic/progressive/liquid style dnb like this stuff [ this vid, dubbed “three dudes on a roof” was my entry to this style ]:
Also like grooving into some deep house type stuff (just heard this for the first time tonight):
Since COVID I’ve liked to throw on festival or boiler room type sets on YouTube just to see all the people and dig the music.
Or techno of various sorts:
Went through a dubstep phase a while back, but don’t know what’s doing in that sphere these days. Maybe goofyballer?
Also can get get into more mass-appeal type stuff like deadmau5, Major Lazer, Chemical Brothers, etc. All kinds of things.
So, anyone else feel this? Let’s get some of your favorites and new discoveries.
