I think a lot of the electronica that Louis is bored with is simply
electroacoustic music created by people who didn't study it in
University. Some will have a 'fresh' approach, and many will be
re-inventing the wheel without knowing it, especially those in the
drone scene.

Personally, I really liked the whole microsound scene, as it felt very
different from a lot of the rich, dense electroacoustic music I had
been listening to in the 90s. This minimal music was also often created
by people who were coming from a visual arts background, and was
therefore more conceptual, far from musique concrete in that way. And
yet, there was much attention paid to the quality of the sonic
experience, at least when it came to the more interesting artists, like
the gang from 12K records.

Maybe, Louis, you're also just entering another phase in your life. I
know that I've gone through periods where I could no longer stand
listening to XX type of music, only to fall in love with it again 10-15
yrs later. It had little to do with the artists, and everything to do
with my shifting interests.
