Elektronika is a research project that aims to develop a historiography of electronic music in Malta. This project was developed from ongoing collaboration between the M3P Foundation and Electronic Music Malta.

The project was launched on Wednesday 21 October 2020 during Circuits at Spazju Kreattiv. The launch event featured a presentation by Michael Bugeja with a running commentary by Toni Sant, moderated by Edwin Balzan.

Below is a working list of electronic bands and artists from Malta or with a Maltese connection, which we hope to expand on by inviting contributions and suggestions from anyone in possession of information, recordings, newspaper and magazine cuttings, visuals, flyers, posters, etc and/or any other object that can help this project reach its goal.
