    I've been listening to these guys for a couple years and want to know if anyone has anything similar to their work. If you haven't heard of them they're pretty top-notch.

    Hmm, Boards of Canada have quite a unique sound... Can't really think of anything majorly similar, but check out some of Chris Clark's stuff (Especially Turning Dragon - amazing album!), ยต-Ziq, Plaid, Autechre, Prefuse 73, Flying Lotus, Amon Tobin, The Flashbulb and Four Tet. I'm sure atleast one of those will tickle your fancy.

    Bonobo is pretty awesome. Thanks for the help, guys. I'm gonna look at that extended list mini_molko gave me.

    I'd take like 90 of them shitz and see what happens on Cubase. I'm sure I could produce something with near the layering complexity as B.O.C.

    :) Thread's reminded me of how good Chris Clark is! Definitely check him out if you like BOC...


    Surreal animation to accompany the song!


    This one's got a bit of a Boards of Canada feel to it...


    This is the opening track on his Turning Dragon album. Quite a hard techno vibe to it, but sooooo good! Think it goes into the second song on the album as well!


    Another twisted techno track off Warp Records...


    I think this is off his new album, haven't actually checked it out yet, but as you can see, he encompasses a range of different sounds!

    Yeah, sick tune. The little vocal edits are amazing. A mate showed me this tune and we must have listened to it about 6 times after the first listen.

    We were on a lot of E though

    They're not quite on the same level although all of them are fucking fantastic.
