yeah the italian techno crews are all wicked. another one to check is Claudio PRC esp his 2007 stuff. real cavernous strobe and fog hypnotism. Ilian tape i can take or leave. don't really think they're that great at making stuff with longevity, it's pretty of the time.
Ed Rush's finest moment. this is *stil contemporary music* as opposed to being an imagined or retro future. bl*ckd*wn never really liked this stuff, of course, I'm sure he'd like to be at plastic people when there was no crowd but this style then subsumed into breakbeat garage and then gave dubstep its real impetus to become a thing. dubstep had real potential to become the techstep of the 00s but those neoliberal hardcore continuum stalwarts did everything to make this possibility frowned upon. another reason why i say the nuum is not useful point past 2007.
