That's why I carry my MP3 player and find a good electronica tune to listen to. I personally wish I had newer songs. A lot of the electronica I have are mostly a lot of mid-late 1990s songs as well as a few from the early 2000s. I have songs from soundtracks, video games, and electronica compilations as part of my MP3 collection.
My personal love affair with this style of music probably began for me back in the mid-1990s. Songs from artists and groups like Amber, La Bouche, Real McCoy, and others have been played on the radio. I've even heard music from the awesome Robert Miles. It wasn't until I heard the soundtrack to the motion picture, "The Saint" that I got to hear many more songs some of the more household names in electronica like Underworld and Moby. I can say with confidence that this is about the only kind of music where I can get a pack of various electronica songs and be able to enjoy almost all songs equally. I don't usually care about just one artist or one group because there's just some awesome beats and great music to be had. I've had or have about five different CD packages featuring loads of electronica and dance songs. Then, the WipEout series of games got me interested further into this style of music. I was introduced to groups and artists like Future Sound of London, Prodigy, the Chemical Brothers, Propellerheads, Fluke, Orbital, Timo Maas, Underworld, and more.
What began with more mainstream electronica has progressed to an overall love affair of a style of music like this. I'm proud to hear even a hip-hop song that sounds like some of the electronica songs. I'm proud even to hear a light dance remix of a pop song. Sometimes, I love electronica so much that certain songs on the radio are songs that I try to remix in real time. Certain songs just beg to have that dream remix to them. Even songs you may not imagine them having a dance remix to them somehow find a way to make a great dance remix to them.
I even enjoy radio remixes with dance-style beats. Now that mainstream hasn't been mainstream since the early 2000s, anything even remotely reminding me of beats from the 1990s is something I'll levitate to. I even enjoy a light dance remix of a pop song. This is just the style of music I've enjoyed the most. I sometimes remix songs with dance remixes in my mind in real time. While I'm not much of a rock music person, I sometimes think a good rock song with a nice trance mix to it can sound pretty awesome.

See what I mean? Some songs just have a good vibe to them to where a good remix of the song can be had.
