The world we live in today might make it a lot more difficult to remain anonymous, but it doesn’t mean you can’t play around with what you present to the world. The many subgenres of electronic music allow for artists to challenge conventions and take control of the typical rock star narrative. The ones on this playlist have done just that, obscuring themselves in costumes, asking other people to represent them entirely, or just subverting what it means to be famous. When it comes to weird, unique, synthetic, and anonymous music, it’s a lot more fun and functional to experiment behind the cloak.
