Honestly, this is kindof ironic, cuz I'm using my sis' Hikaru Utada (Movin' On Without You if you're curious) as an upper at the moment (shitty month this' been). She's allllll about Jpop, so I hear alot of it by proxy. But seriously, I love the pillows.

I do :o
I listen a lot to japanese music. There are a lot of artists that I like, but my favourites are Shiina Ringo and Tokyo Jihen, Bonnie Pink, Hikaru Utada, capsule, m-flo, L'Arc-en-Ciel, The Pillows and a lot of Anime/Videogame OSTs, particulary Ichiko Hashimoto of RahXephon Soundtrack fame.
I don't have a specific favourite genre of music, so I'll basically listen to everything that sounds good (to me). As you can see, there's Rock and Jazz in Ringo and her band, Pop-Rock in Bonnie Pink, R&B and (experimental-)pop in Hikaru Utada, electronic in capsule, electronic rap in m-flo, etc.

Btw, here, have my last.fm account: http://www.last.fm/user/ShinjiPG/ . I'll glady add friends : D

Can anyone please give me any recommendations to someone who likes electronic music a hell of a lot. The only one I've found is Susumu Hirasawa, who is very good (one of my favourite electronic artists now). Are there any more worth pointing out to me? Thanks in advance.

To Henry Spencer:
If you listen to Susumu, than you listen to one of the greatest (my personal favourite too). The thing is, he is quite "unique", or at least I haven't found another artist who resembles his sound.

However, I recommend you to check out capsule's work, particulary Lounge Designers Killer and, the last one, FLASH BACK, because both of them represent the extremes of their sound: one is more cute electro-pop (and a bit noisy) and the other is more melodic, heavy beat and euro-sounding.

For more experimental electronic sounds, you should definitely go for Cornelius. Again, I'd recommend one of his first albums, 69/96, and the latest one, Sensuous, to notice the different possibilities in his sound that you'll get throughout the discography.

As for electronic, that's probably the best I can recommend you.
But if you like capsule's LDK, you can always pick up some Perfume album for more cute electro-pop. It's a 3 girls band produced by capsule's dude, Nakata Yasutaka.

Oh, I forgot to mention Fantastic Plastic Machine, but I really don't like the guy's sound. One or two nice songs, the rest is garbage (imo). You could like, tho, I don't know.

Thanks very much, Shinji. Very detailed. I'll check those ones out.

I always knew Susumu was unique, didn't realise how unique he was until now. Haha.

No problem :D
Well, there's no other artist with that kind of sound that I know of, but at least he released a GREAT amount of albums, so there's always enough! There's also his 2 first bands discography, Mandrake and P-Model... It's a huge list if you combine the bands and his solo works :x

Yeah, I'm looking into those now, I only have four of his solo effort albums so far. I am looking forward to divulging in his other works though, in the bands and such. Varied career, alright. Practically worked in all of the genres that matter, pretty much.
