The New Techno Thread


Have been in a bit of a pit mentally and I feel like the one thing that will help me out of it would a good stompbounce to some London Acid Techno... :hmm:


A crazy bulbous punchbag of sound
Marc Mac of 4 Hero also makes techno as Nu Era from time to time. He's got a new EP out and it's gorgeous and melodic - sounds more like it was made in Detroit than in London:
Nu Era - Geometricks EP • InfiniteStateMachine
That's great. It reminds me of the sort of stuff Ian O'Brien and Vince Watson were doing in the mid/late 90s. I've checked the other tracks on the EP and they're all that good. Nice one :thumbs:


A crazy bulbous punchbag of sound
the late 90s were the pits of it IMO - all those looped bangers from the likes of Adam Beyer and Marco Carola - it got well boring
Absolutely. I almost gave up on techno for a few years at the end of the 90s/beginning of the 00s, til I caught Suburban Knight play an amazing set and got the techno bug again.


Bass case
The new Thomas P. Heckmann album is really growing on me, nothing ground breaking but a really solid LP of dance floor fillers.
That second Heckman track sounds really familiar,like back in the day familiar but its new?There something out there that sounds very familiar or is it just my head?:confused:


I don't know but RA mentions "Heckmann explores EBM and techno across 14 tracks, some of which are connected to tunes produced in the early '00s".
With such an extensive back-catlogue i would be surprised if he's updated some old tracks.
