well, I think it was more of a list of UW 'contemporaries' so I don't think you could include Kraftwerk or New Order (or Depeche Mode), as they predate UW... or Goldfrapp, Royksopp, and Justice as they came out a few years later...

In my opinion it'd be:

the Orb
the Prodigy
Daft Punk

+ Bjork
+ Aphex Twin
+ Massive Attack
+ UNKLE (although I guess they didn't come around until '93/'94)

Then, if we're also going to include DJ's who also released singles you'd kinda 'have to' include:

Paul Oakenfold
Fatboy Slim
Sasha (and/or Sasha with Digweed)

I mean, it's a bit of an over-generalization, but they all effectively started as the bands we know today around '91 - '93 ish. Sure, UW existed in the 80's but that's a totally different sound & band. And yeah, Oakenfold & Sasha were around in the late 80's but I feel like they rose in prominence in the early 90's


but back to the new song...

It's great on headphones... just wish I could have a proper copy instead of a soundcloud rip!
