That first one sounds like it may have a little "Whiter Shade of Pale" in it - and the Beatles were certainly an influence on Procol Harum. The track itself is clearly rooted in 1990s Trance, which itself arose through the late 1980s Rave scene - both are audible in all 4 tracks.
These tracks are all created using the same very simple methods - loops created or uploaded and manipulated (copied and pasted) in order to create a flowing piece in a style that builds to climaxes rather than focusses on verse/chorus bridge structures. It's easy peasy, which is why there are so many tunes in this vein.
The sequencing methods used are exactly those used in TMK, even if the hard work is now done by a computer.
Given that 43 years have elapsed since TMK, you'd expect the music to have evolved a bit - but essentially, it hasn't, which is why TMK still sounds fresh in its own way, and the 1980s pieces sound terribly dated, while the 1990s pieces sound of their time.
None of these are strictly what I'd call electronica though - there are too many samples of people playing instruments, and not enough electronically manipulated sounds. Subtle but important difference I feel.
Now Autechre are electronica...

Daft Punk/Justice fanboy
still electronica, but a shitload of intrumentals
I cant agree to what you have said that they arnt electronica, they were influenced by the acid house movement, which was from the late 80's. the first video i posted is gabber which is dutch ofcourse. the second video is house. thrid ones hardstyle/gabber. fourth ones trance. if you read they links, they all say that its electronica genre music. the tracks were created by 'turntables' which most dj's use. its not some pcdj music, (remember teem techno?) it takes effort and hardwork and research of the movement. or we would all be dj's if it were that easy

Rank The Beatles Songs
crappyguitar suggested I just make a thread about this so here I am. Sorry if I step on any toes...
I'm currently in the process of running a fan-run ranking of The Beatles best songs through the internet using a bunch of websites, Facebook, forums, et cetera. Why? Mostly just for fun and to make it a truly fan-run thing instead of these Entertainment Weekly things made by someone who also gave a Thumbs Up to Miley Cyrus' new album.
What I'm looking for now is just people and their ballots. When I say ballots, this is exactly what I am looking for:
A list of your top 25 Beatles songs in order (meaning #1 is your favorite/best Beatles song).
That's all I really need from people who want to participate. If you want to help out more, just let people know and get people to vote. The more voters/ballots, the more varied the list gets and the more definitive it gets.
But for right now, I'm really just looking for people who would be interested and their votes.
As per when I need them, I would like them as soon as possible just so I can add them to the rolling list and see how many people I have so I can see what else I need to do to get more.
Thank you guys so much for your time; I greatly appreciate it!

Sorry to be pushy, but do you have the rest of the list?
I actually plan to start counting down the list on the 10th and I'm planning on having YouTube videos, download links, and information on each song so that's gonna take a while to get off the ground.
I know - I'm a ****...
