I like my techno hard, not fit for sitting in a bean bag to.

randomer has this great knack for really bruising drum sounds, always a highlight tracks by him and also blawan. since many techno tracks tend to be functional ("DJ tools") rather than actual songs, the sounds of the baselines and drum programming are what make the difference between good and boring.

just last weekend, i pulled a bunch of old jeff mills and UR 12"s off the shelf and had a good ol' time. abe duque and the tension records crew were also a techno fav back in the day, a little heavier on the acid tip than the detroit guys.

i haven't followed techno that much in the last few years, who's doing it well nowadays? i've liked a fair amount of the blawan and pearson sound releases, also stuff on the livity sound label. never got into all the berlin ostgut ton stuff, dettmann, ben klock, etc. it's too sleek and clean for my tastes, i like my techno dirtier and grubbier (like randomer), although i do like answer code request and call super. ancient methods is ok, a bit industrial at times. silent servant rubs me the wrong way, for some reason.

If youre into first/second wave Detroit, the next best thing is London techno - early WARP and its precursors. Matt did a good mix of this stuff a while back actually: https://www.mixcloud.com/woebot/fragments-techno-in-the-uk-1989-1993/

Does Joey Beltram fit into your playlist? Which looks excellent BTW

This has to be one of the coolest covers I've seen.

That first mix has got some TOUGH tunes on it. Great stuff. I love the totally unexpected breakbeat that comes in at 1:10:30.

"house vocalist, housey sound but its detroit and kevin saunderson so it goes in. im only doing classics and basics cos its for a beginner. its not for the likes of you lot."
Since I first heard it I've always hated that tune for some reason.

Is it Craner? I saw him putting a techno thing on fb and you saying "I thought you hated techno?".

You had a load of stuff on that playlist, did it have this one on it?

Similar to that Hall of Mirrors thing back a page.

IdleRich

Actually having listened all through that Hall of Mirrors it's not that similar, not even in mood which is what I thought.

And back to the general techno thread - I got this record yesterday, I'm not sure it's really techno but I heard Ben Klock play it so....

"CD" "for my" "car" were the important words there.

Has it forgotten how music used to be released on multiple formats? It wasn't that long ago

I don't like the wizard mixes personally. They're irritating and they're as much hiphop and electro as techno usually.

the swedish stuff is phenomenal - hypnotic, moody, unrelenting; (semi recent) examples:
