Less a style and more a categorization, Indie Electronic refers to rock-rooted artists who followed early electronic composers (especially the BBC Radiophonic Workshop), Krautrock, synth pop, and dance music by using synthesizers, samplers, drum machines, and computer programs. The initial wave of Indie Electronic artists began in the early '90s, with bands as disparate as Stereolab (who used vintage gear) and Disco Inferno (who pushed sampling technology to the limit). During the early 2000s, the number of indie electronic artists grew exponentially, as home recording and software synthesizers (or softsynths) became common. A few exceptions aside, these artists released their music on independent labels, such as Warp (Broadcast), Morr Music (Lali Puna, Múm), Sub Pop (the Postal Service, Dntel), and Ghostly International (Skeletons, School of Seven Bells).
