Some of my favourite artists (in alphabetical order, because I'm a dork):

Adult., Alloy Mental, Cut Copy, DK7, Every Move A Picture, Josh Wink, Justice, Martini Bros, MIA, Miss Kittin, Miss Pain, No Bra, Scarlet Soho, Simon Bookish, Thom Revolver, Thomas Andersson, Tiga, Vitalic, Zongamin

They're pretty much at the other end of the spectrum.

It's not too tricky to flick through a box of vinyl of list names, as much as I'd like to have had an alphabetical list prepared in case I'm ever asked.

(And yes, I know, I file Josh Wink under 'J' - it's just easier when DJing)
