I have no idea whether it's considered electronica, and I'm sure Frown will be surprised, but I've been getting into drone a bit. Oh, nothing he would consider proper drone, I'm sure, though I'm even thinking of giving Dopesmoker another shot. Solar Fields has impressed me

as has Steve Roach

and Wiliam Basinski

Then, apart from drone (if those are drone) there's Carbon Based Lifeforms

Vangelis

and of course, the grand-daddy of them all...

I've been telling you that you're a drone fan for years. I'm sure that you'll come around on Beefheart too.

Meh, I think what you actually said was that I drone on. Which is certainly true. I'll give that a listen and let you know what I think of it later.

I find some of this music to be quite challenging - the challenge being to stick it out to the end without slipping into a coma.

Some of his best ambient albums were done with Fripp, who of course went on to do plenty of ambient albums on his own. Of the whole bunch, I'd recommend "Heavenly Music Corporation" as being their finest hour; it has some slow but robust guitar playing from R.Fripp.

I quite like this whole album, pretty damn laid back and spacey:

I'm glad you liked it. I remember the first time I heard it, the opening track blew me away. It just has a nice combination of groove, atmosphere, and it does occasionally get into that atmospheric ambience that I think the OP is referring to, but I was just kind of listening to that followup post and Air was one of the first things I thought of.
