If things carry on this way, where everything sounds the same, homogenous, then this whole electronic music will die a death… What’s happened is… what was once the underground of dance music has been filtered out and made into a “brand” and the DJ has become a symbol of the music maker. People are used to hearing things on playback and watching some sort of “show” which is a just some DJ jumping around.

Bleep’s Guide To Electronic Music 
The online music store set up by respected Warp Records have put together a 55 track history of electronic music from Olivier Messiaen, John Cage, up to Burial, J Dilla and James Blake:

Bleep’s guide to Electronic Music is a 55 track compilation charting the historical emergence of electronic music by looking at landmark tracks from the 1930s up to present day. Our aim with this selection of music is to show the length and breadth of the medium, providing a snapshot of the genres forms and styles, and the development of the artform. Whilst there are omissions and compromises that we have had to make, we hope that we achieve our aims and we do some justice to the variety of music that we love.  This compilation developed out of a project to create a Facebook timeline charting the development of electronic music from the late 19th Century until now.
