I dont think there isn't much music made that can be called extropian. For some reason it is very trendy to be dark an negative when making music. (I myself have been guilty in this)
And beside music is often made by young people/teens without any technological, humanistic, rational and otherwise philosophical background. Those who has that background doesn't usually make music. I think that Transhumanism is such a complex subject that to know both it and how to make music can be very difficult. Besides theres is probably no money in it at all. Thus violating the first rule of all organisations. "Do what is nessecary to uphold your own existence."

I myself has touched transhuman/extropian ideas in my music, but it was mostly by chance as I was very interrested in Sci-fi.

The obvious choice though is Kraftwerk.
