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
Last year I came across Luke Slater's Jelly Jam Records and that's got some excellent releases, especially the early ones.
More recently I came across an imprint of, more or less, the same name, JJ (Jelly Jams) which looks interesting but more tough sounding
I need do some digging into Analog USA as it's got some really nice releases.
This is only a very small selection that came to mind but any suggestions would be great.
