    When I was first getting into techno ('94/95 I guess?) I remember there being a divide between serious young men, who would listen only to detroit techno, and the rest of us who would also listen to trance and loads of other crap. Anyway, the purists were right. Post gems below please (try to avoid being too obvious).

    Came across this tonight - I have Aftermath which is ace too, but this is brilliant. So is everything else he did, it seems.

    Yeah - in the clubs at least, but I never really bought it at the time - I was buying banging trance instead for some reason. :confused: I've picked a lot up second hand in the last 10 years or so though.

    Detroit purist all the way, although slightly more into the house side of things than techno.

    This is the track that made me fall in love with techno
