This track was very special last night
is it me or has techno been going back to dark days of 00s these past 2-3 years?
i can really notice it this year.
NON PARAXIALTRANSFER (2017) by English techno artist, Coefficient.
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...
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
I'm curious: which bits of 00s techno do you consider the dark days? And what was dark about them?
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.
