are the big 3 of Electro IMHO

If you like the downbeat side of UW
DJ Koze (incl. Remixes and his label Pampa Records)
Deep Dive Corp.
Kruder & Dorfmeister
Is quality stuff.

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:

UW
Chem's
Orbital
the Orb
the Prodigy
Daft Punk
FSOL
Leftfield
Fluke
Moby

+ 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

[edit]

but back to the new song...

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

I would say this is the main list, all British groups who got a fair amount of chart success in the early-to-mid '90s with album-centred post-rave techno / ambient-techno while it actually quite fashionable. None ever really fit into other things like IDM, and their music suited stadiums and festivals (and home listening) as much as it did clubs (if not more so, in most cases).

Re: Drift ep. 1 part 2: Underworld and [Phase] - Dexters Chalk
Underworld
Daft Punk
Prodigy
Chemical Brothers
Massive Attack
Bjork
Fatboy Slim
Moby
Leftfield
Aphex Twin
Orbital
The Orb

I'll go on a limb and throw BT in there. Acts like Fluke and Faithless feel like also-rans to me but one's mileage will vary.
