    Some techno DJs seem to be pitching things up a bit in the past couple of years - Umfang, Volvox, Noncompliant etc. I like it.
    Fez909 Umfang and Volvox are playing Headrow House at the end of March. Let's go!

    144 bpm is the proper tempo for techno, give or take a few, but only a few, mind.

    that's a bit too fast - 130-135 is pretty fast and bouncy. any faster and it gets a bit basic.

    There was this in 1997, still reasonably fast but between hard house and techno I can't always tell...

    And this had me screaming out loud at 414 Coldharbour Lane. Still lost in that HH-techno crossover I think. I never was very good at genres :confused:

  17. cologne acid, industrial strength, dbn, magnetic north?

    i really should check out umfang and those other guys/girls but sitting through hour long 4/4 mixes isn't really where I'm this year, i like the pounding techno to be mixed with electro, instrumental grime etc.

    i did really like that helena hauff got a much deserved EM last year.

    I am listening to a "Party Techno" radio sation on google play music and it is unsufferably slow. 125bpm the lot of it. What sort of "party" is this? :mad:

    EDIT: Christ this one is 120. The breakdowns are just embarassing.

    Variety is the spice of life. If techno and other electronic music was only made/played at one tempo it would get boring and formulaic very quickly much like it did in the late 90s.
    Some of the most classic techno is quite slow. It doesn't have to be hard and fast.

    you sure you're not mistaking techno for tekno?

    must admit tho, the stuff hawtin, houle, magda etc, are putting out under the name "techno" sounds more like tech-house to my ears, altho fairly sparse in cases.

    one of my fav old skool techno classics, UR in the house!
