Default My electronic collection has gotten predictable. Where's the weird stuff?

OK, so, I have a relatively wide variety of electronic acts in my collection already, but I'm getting a little tired of it all being familiar stuff. I keep coming up with a few new artists at a time that I like, but those artists are very similar to ones I already like - IE, liking Shpongle and Hallucinogen and then finding out about Ott.

So I'm after someone to fill in the gaps as it were.

I presently have plenty of straightforward ambient and downtempo, both in the pure ambient sense (Robert Rich, Satori, Elve etc), and the more accepted sense (Boards of Canada, etc).

I also have a lot of psytrance (Astrix, Intelabeam, Infected Mushroom, Cosmosis etc), and a lot of Psybient (Shpongle and the many imitators)

Whacked out experimental stuff is covered by Kashiwa Daisuke, Venetian Snares, Autechre, etc.

I'm presently getting hold of a bunch of Vaporwave, which I'm enjoying but realistically nothing I've found yet has beaten Esprit - Summer Night.

There's also the music in a lot of the old "Animusic" 3D animations that's really good, particularly this, that I can't really nail a genre on to find close-relatives musically: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQso49UOW84


Where am I missing out in my Electronic library?

I love Xanopticon, because of how irregular the beats are.



Ikue mori has a great style, not always really beat-based though.



László Hortobágyi makes some cool imaginary folklore from samples.
He's pretty diverse. This is just an example.



Art Zoyd still use instruments, but their output has been primarily electronic for quite some time now.



Phonophani make ambientish, but pretty unique stuff.

Autechre is one of my favourites. Oneohtrix Point Never is pretty solid if you haven't gotten to him yet. I love Pan Sonic and pretty much everything their members have been associated with so far. If you want old school weird stuff, check out John Cage's tape music.



EDIT: Just noticed Autechre in your OP. Well listen to them more I guess .

Title may be a smidge misleading btw - I gravitate towards "Trippy psychedelic weird" much more than "Freaky avant-garde weird".

I appreciate the latter, its just I listen to it with purpose rather than letting it sit around on a playlist or on shuffle, which is how I listen to music 90% of the time.

Kashiwa Daisuke's "Requiem" is a rare exception in that it's very abrasive but also deeply listenable.

Cage is the only one on my list that is super out there, with the exception of some of the Pan Sonic side projects. Another good one is Muslimgauze.

Well, if one of my recs eventually are along your lane, let me know. I'll try to think of more.
I haven't been into the more usual electronic styles for quite some time now, so I'm stumped there.

One of your recs already was - Phonophani.

It reminds me a bit of Trentemoller to be honest - minimal and sparse without losing the body of the sound.

Obtaining now.

Do you know Supersilent?
Stretching it a bit, since there are instruments, but the overall sound is pretty electronic.

Quite like the first, but I already have plenty of straight up psytrance and a decent amount of Hallucinogen. Looking for something a bit more different.
