Trying to get into some harder electronic music, without being dubstep.

Regular

I'm not really an aficionado of electronic music, and so I feel I'm missing out on a ton of things.  I like Burial, Die Antwoord, but other than that, all the DJs I enjoy are hip hop DJs.  Anyone have ideas?

It depends what you mean by "harder electronic music" To me, "hard" electronic music refers to the industrial and electro-industrial genre. Current bands like Combichrist, Hocico, Surgyn, and XP8, for example. There are also sub-genres like Harsh EBM, Noise, and Aggrotech. Have a look through the Brutal Resonance website (http://www.brutalresonance.com/) for Spotify links for this kind of hard electronic music.

Sorry, I really know very little about these genres, so bear with me. I really dig industrial synth leads, and the beats as a whole.  Where I get turned off is when I hear the gruff Rammsteiny vocals.  I dig Xp8 a ton, finding some other stuff through samplers.

Essentially, the closer it can be to the Mortal Kombat theme, the better.
