CBC Electronic is still a fledgling branch of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. I cannot stress enough how important support by this country's electronic music aficionados is to the success of this thing. Far too many Canadian electronic musicians are forced to leave the country for Europe and the UK just to make a go of it.
In order to stop this brain-drain, it's up to us to keep pushing the scene in Canada, to make it viable for artists to get the work and recognition they deserve at home. To this aim, I have compiled a 'work in progress' list of all the best electronic leaning artists Canada has yet seen. Enjoy!
FYI: The list is ordered first name first, for sake of ease, and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (just comment or PM me).

1 Jan 2009, 14:16 by Liebsmaschinesubject to change cos there's still stuff from 2008 I haven't listened to yet.
01.M83 - Saturdays = Youth
From bubblegum indie rock to progressive trance via 80s electro pop and ambient, a record with it's heart in the past, it's eyes on the future and so brimming with ideas it's almost overwhelming, album of the year hands down.
02.The Flashbulb - Soundtrack To A Vacant Life
Just as eclectic as M83 and easily as strong as anything Benn Jordan has done before, the neo classical pieces are lovely, the IDM tracks are 20 carat gold choons and he even (post) rocks out a few times. Electronic music doesn't get much better than the Flashbulb.
03.The Presets - Apocalypso
A masterclass in club music production, absolutely colossal synth riffs that grab you by the bits and don't let go, urgent, commanding vocals with lyrics that actually mean something (most of the time) and breakdowns designed to tear up dancefloors with razor sharp precision, live these are an absolute riot and they're no one trick pony either…
31 Dec 2008, 17:39 by HeliosphanerAnother year... For me it was the year of ambient and modern classical sounds but also of good minimal music. As in 2007 it was very, very hard to choose and place all the albums of 2008. This year from 170 records I chose a hundred, so it was harder than a year ago when I placed albums in Top 50. So here we go:
I've Got My Eye On You
Leftfield, House, Future Jazz, Disco
THE MATTHEW HERBERT BIG BAND
There's Me And There's You
Big Band, Jazz
SCHOOL OF SEVEN BELLS
Indie Rock, Shoegaze, Ethereal
HERCULES AND LOVE AFFAIR
Hercules And Love Affair
Disco, Leftfield, House
