    Dunno if Id make that distinction, or how useful that distinction is.

    For me, electronica is roughly 93-98, first & second wave of UK London techno/WARP offshoots which still had some tenuous relationship with dancefloor/chill out scenes.

    IDM is 97/98 on and typifies a more avant/experimental tendency, especially with rhythm & timbre, which quickly turned to pastiche crunchy/glitchy drum sounds ala Richard Devine, Push Button Objects & Funkstorung.

    This is arbitrary and there's a ton of crossover and grey areas. Kinda like the nebulous Jungle>>Drum & bass problem.

    There were Danii Minogue albums sold as "Electronica", good luck using it as a label you can save.

    Meh. Punk, Rock, Hip-Hop - all labels that have been utterly debased over the years, yet the core meaning remains and is mostly understood.

    Wasn't a diss at Danii I assure you!

    (Would do with more of these singles than threads on Autechre and Aphex Twin in 2018, lord fucking knows)
