Okayplayers who's interested in checking out some electronica should try a new compilation called Braindance, on Rephlex Records. The label is co-owned by Aphex Twin, and they've been putting out a lot of interesting stuff the past ten years or so. Also, most releases on Warp are pretty darn good. Especially a new artist they're putting out called Prefuse 73, sounds sort of like a hip hop Aphex Twin. As for drum'n'bass, Ming & FS outta New York has some ILL d'n'b/hip hop crossover material, the kinda stuff that even the most narrow minded hip hop fan should be able to feel.
