not bad, but not quite the style i'm looking for.

 

but it still was a great tip. while looking for the track i found this dj set by him and the majority of the tracks exactly the right kind of techno for me (12:00, 18:20!, 35:40, 50:10, 1:01:00)  :)

now i'll only have to look for a tracklist.

 

it's from 2000, so i slowly get the suspicion that i not only prefer oldschool goa to most newer psytrance, but also prefer oldschool techno to more modern variants ;)

Great session from Slater, thanks. And you're right, you may prefer oldschool techno !

Check some "Octave one" or "Jack De Marseille" live sessions, you may like their sound.

Yes, I also - in general - prefer techno released in the late 90s until begin of 2000s. More driving and less minimal than nowadays and tons of top-notch producers around (Beyer, Krome, Stoll, Parisio, Mills, Lekebusch, etc, etc)!

However, I have to say I did not follow the techno scene for quite some years any more, maybe it is getting also more "oldschoolish" again?

hi
 
i'm currently getting more and more into techno and would like some recommendations. i'm not looking for acid techno, freetekno, techtrance, minimal techno and the like, just plain, real techno. probably i'm still unknowlegable about some of the great classics from the 90s. but mainly i'm also looking for more mechanical, harder sound, maybe with a sort of warehouse vibe to it.
 
here are some examples of what i think is good techno (probably influenced a bit from my obvious psy background ;) ) :

 

 
or kopfuss resonator - monokiller, but i can't find that one on youtube.
 
 
i'm sure that some of you have great tracks to share and pointers into directions that can help me with my search :)


In Techno as long as it has strong bass anything goes. Jeff Mills is spot on mate .

Surprised to see no mention of Boris Brejcha here. He is comfortably my favorite techno of recent years.

 

His dancefloor stuff is fanstastic, powerful yet thoughtful. His more minimalistic side is melodic, almost melancholic, and still very interesting (rare for me with minimal-esque techno).

 

 

^^^ this one has a lovely build

 

 

^^ a bit heavier

 

 

 

^^^ a nice journey, more mellow

 

 

^^^ unique, twisted, really goes places. Nothing quite like it.

The "harder warehouse" techno you might be looking for?

Laid back, hmmm... that is certainly a different take on it. You sure you've listened to it on a PA or some real bad ass headphones at crazy ass volumes? ;)

Well, I'd not be chillin' to it had I been on a club, just saying :D.

You got good taste :)

Here is something you might like, one of my favorites... maximal and pumping :)

yes, i did (and i turned up the volume a bit when reading your comment just now), but it has that chilled out dubby vibe about it, you know :). i could dance to it, but i could also chill on the sofa and sip a cool drink.

thanks, and thanks for the recommendation. this is it :D

chilling on the sofa is not an option for this kind of music ;)

 

and apparently at least one other track from the release is equally good:

 

edit:

they're really interesting guys. i explored some of their other stuff (lots of electro and a bit commercial sounding hard trance), and then i stumble upon this gem:

mechanical, raw, hard, and acid! :)

following that path, i've stumbled on this (among other things) :

Glad you like! These audiowarp guys are amazing, I love anything they did, unfortunately they seem to have disappeared.

The one you discovered is nice too!

I kept looking for similar stuff myself, but there is not much. Really makes me wonder what happened to that old kind of mechanical techno. There is Schranz/Hardtechno but most of the time that is just too fast and too primitive for my taste, with the same rythm over and over and no atmosphere at all. And then on the other side there is the more minimal stuff at around 125BPM that we see a lot in this thread.
I don't mean any offense saying this, this kind of techno is nice too, but it really is all over the place, any party you go, there are so few exceptions to that sound. I would really like to know what the hell happened to the 90s/early 00s kind of stuff with 140-150BPM. Excellent drive, good groove and still with some room for atmosphere. At some point, it seems to have gone forgotten.

agreed. schranz lacks atmosphere and has become stereotypical very quickly (when you can have a "schranz remix" of any arbitrary track, you know that the genre has become too formulaic and is basically dead).

regarding the minimal stuff i have to disagree. i don't know how it is in the ruhrpott but in vienna you have to go to underground parties if you want to listen to music like many post here in this thread. over here the "techno" you usually get is more commercial, with a "plastic" sound, 110-120bpm maximum and much closer to house than anything posted here.

Rough clattering mechanical industrial... I was just thinking, did you ever try the Solstice Black compilations? They're a decade old but still packs a big amount of energy.

eat static, x-dream, juno reactor, koxbox, the delta, ...?

even if it just was just another goa compilation it would be interesting with that kind of tracklist ;)
