Topic: Techno

I'm interested in getting some good Techno recommendations from people, recommendations from both the past and the present.
Maybe I'm wrong but I find that it's a style less and less catered for these days. I'm aware this is not the case for many, as it does depend on your definition of Techno. Rather than limit the discussion I'll leave the definition up to you.
I also think it's a genre that's quite hard to crack sometimes. There is a such a wealth of material out there but much of it has remained on vinyl, not uploaded to the likes of youtube and less played on IFM than other genres.
I know there are some cracking labels still releasing quality Techno, some using this forum, but I'd like to be introduced to more.
Here are some of my own.

One release that jumped out at me recently was T.E.W. on Electronique.it
I'd never heard of T.E.W. and his back catalogue sounds really excellent.

I was also pleased to find De:tuned recently too, Antwerp label specialising in unreleased 90s Techno.

As for past labels that I've been into of late, or bought of late.
One I've always liked is Axodya from Switzerland, label of Marco Repetto from Synectics. http://www.discogs.com/label/515-Axodya
Similar vein is the smaller Kromode from Italy
http://www.discogs.com/label/3093-Kromode-Records
Last year I came across Luke Slater's Jelly Jam Records and that's got some excellent releases, especially the early ones.
http://www.discogs.com/label/8912-Jelly-Jam-Records
More recently I came across an imprint of, more or less, the same name, JJ (Jelly Jams) which looks interesting but more tough sounding
http://www.discogs.com/label/4635-JJ
I need do some digging into Analog USA as it's got some really nice releases.
http://www.discogs.com/label/417-Analog-Records-USA

This is only a very small selection that came to mind but any suggestions would be great.

Guyver 303 in real r4r post shocker, give the man a banana. Nice recommendations, that T.E.W stuff is indeed excellent.. i can't really think of anything that you wouldn't already know about.

I know Likemind, very good label. Surprised they didn't jump on the B12 reissuing bandwagon few years back.

Re: Techno

Eternal classic, Cebteq!

There's not a lot of techno on my radar these days, last few months I think the only real techno records I picked up were these:

Orlando Voorn in top shape, so much funk and soul in his machines, really standing out.

Joey Anderson always twisting and turning his records in other directions than you expect, all has a real organic / improvised sound to it

Slater really delivers in this minimal Millsian masterpiece. Techno like this can still be the sound of the future for me.

Very much looking forward to this Tresor compilation, technoid soundscapes for the armchair astronauts..

And well, Legowelt is still making some of the deepest techno tracks around.

move along

Re: Techno

I don't think I do, Kucz... can you point me towards some of his good stuff?
The cd material I find on discogs is mostly filed under "minimal" and although there is nothing wrong with decent minimal techno, that genre label still makes me very cautious...

are you entering the entire link address or just the id code? you only need to enter the id code.
if you insist on entering the whole address, then drop the "s" from https. hope that helps.

sozz for drifting off topic. some techno:
