Techno: Famous and Classic (Any Suggestions?)

Post by Kaebora » Wed Jan 14, 2009 4:57 pm

I'm searching everywhere for some Techno, Trance, Drum N Bass, Breakbeat music ranging from the early 90's to the mid 00's. Any that are famous or nostalgic classics are preferred. My list is already huge, but maybe yall have some titles that I haven't considered yet.

I'm putting together this music for a Dance genre internet radio stream. It will be integrated with a virtual club in Second Life to have the track titles and album art displayed. I have some rare 90's remix stuff that was pulled from cassettes that is very good, and even including a few choice albums that were only locally released as demos into the Dallas techno scene that are extraordinary. All of the songs I have that don't stand out (sound the same to casual Techno listeners) are just filler tunes. I need some of the songs that really pop up and get your attention.

So, do yall have any suggestions?

Some artists I already sunk my teeth into include Richie Howtin, Adam Beyer, Jeff Mills, Paul Oakenfold, Eddie Halliwell, Aphrodite, Tiesto, Darude, DJ Hype, Pendulum, DJ Photek, Skreem, Freestylers, Fat Boy Slim, Daft Punk and a many others.

Well, one that I didn't see is Scooter(Maria, Fire, The Logical Song), as an example of some of his stuff. Then there's people like Eifel 65(Move your body, I'm Blue), Benny Benassi (Satisfaction), DJ Sammy(Heaven). Mistaria (Who killed JFK?), Zymotix(Feel my love, and Rachel in Trance), Chemical Brothers (Under the Influence), Massive Attack (Karmacoma, Disolved Girl[from The Matrix])

And some others. It could be worth looking into some Ministry of Sound stuff(like this)

Oh, wait, here's a big one I forgot. New Order (Confusion), the blood-bath scene techno from Blade.

I'm reasonably sure all of those are from the 90s to mid 00s, that's also pretty much everything that comes to mind.

Very informative. Half of that stuff I hadn't thought of. The last few days have been a big nostalgia trip hearing all the music I haven't heard since the 90's. Twas my favorite decade in the music world.

Techno, eh? Not really my thing but what I can suggest is warmen, machinae supremacy (for example 'cryosleep' if you like trance), Dj Sharpnel, bubblegum octopus, tatch/naoki, voodoo & serano/Dj lear and the flashbulb for sure.

I like my techno and industrial extra hard. These songs are among my favorites:

Rotterdam Terror Corps - Horror
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGbjX7RX1Do

Delta 9 - Welcome to Hell
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56gJYW_K8iw

Angerfist - Dipshit (this artist is actually my nephew)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NebExBSfZa4

For something more sensitive to the ears:
Suicide Commando - Hellraiser
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgbTWGPp9RY (ignore the stupid Hellraiser movie clips)

Try "Streamline" by Newton. The kids at my school play that song on the computers in our library all the time, and it drives the librarians NUTS. :lol:

I just found this avantgarde techno-song which is a cover of Darkthrone's Transilvanian Hunger. I strongly suggest anyone with a taste for avantgarde music to check it out. There are harsh vocals in it, but thats about it.

Here it is:

One of my favorites is Underworld (no relation to the werewolves vs. vampires movie franchise.) They've got a number of songs with weird titles.

Some of my favorites are "Juanita," "Pearl's Girl," and "Cowgirl."

Pearl's Girl (live version off Everything, Everything): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2vg_fsY2ow

Juanita (edited--first 8 minutes; full length is over 15): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5fZawx5SoU
and live remixed version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUIDMM0LD8Y

Cowgirl: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfH8qHFvEEY
