I'm looking for artists/albums/songs specifically similar to Blanck Mass albums "Dumb Flesh" (especially the song "Dead Format"), "World Eater", (to a slightly lesser extent) "Animated Violence Mild" and the single "D7-D5".

Blanck Mass composes electronic music I find very difficult to classify. As a huge electronic music fan I still find nothing quite like it. Exploring the genres typically associated with him (electro-industrial, IDM) I would find music that sounds very little like it. The sound I would describe as extremely thick, textured, heavily layered, noisy, experimental and, for the lack of a better word, large.

Some songs I've found that sort of scratch the same itch:

  • Ben Frost - Nolan
  • Oneohtrix Point Never - Sticky Drama
  • Tim Hecker - Where Shadows Make Shadows
  • 65daysofstatic - Dance Parties [Mechanised]

And some of the songs by Benjamin's other band Fuck Buttons.

But I'm looking for more! Thanks.

Based on the music and artist's description on Wikipedia he seems to be a combination of post-rock, IDM, and noise. A bit tricky. Here would be my suggestions to look into.


Autechre (Second Bad Vibel, Gantz Graf, plyPhon, Fleure, Bladeroles)
Amon Tobin (Triple Science)
Two Fingers (Razorback)


Des Esseintes (Due, King of the Jungle)


World's End Girlfriend (Requiem remix, Caroling Hellwalker)


Take a look at music-map. You enter a band you like, and it suggests others you also might like. For example, for Blanck Mass it suggests Roly Porter and Emptyset, among many others. For Ben Frost it suggests Kreng as well as Roly Porter again, plus ....

  • Roly Porter is dark ambient which sounds nothing like BM so I wonder where they get the connection.
