DJ looking for original Techno

Post by ze2be » Mon Jun 04, 2012 1:13 pm

Hi!

Im a DJ looking for tips on techno artists. Would be very happy for any tips,
as ive been out of the DJ biz for a while. I like it a bit rough and a bit dark,
lofi or hifi, not to funky or groovy. A strong atmosphere, a plot and personality
is important. Im not looking for clasic detroit or chicago styles. But euro styles
with a creative experimental touch. Or just something original. Any kind of chese
is not interesting.

I like some of Boris Brejcha's stuf, but it is just a little bit to funky for me.
If he's tracks didnt have such a heavy swing quantise, and was a bit colder
in general, they would be perfect.

Some related examples:

yo - can't check your links at the moment but perhaps Modeselektor? I tend to like a lot of the techno on the bpitch label, which is in general a bit dark and completely devoid of cheese. Happy hunting!

8O I know.. Thats why I need help finding records!

Thanks smutek! That was awesome. But not what I was looking for. This one is to hardcore/tunnel/rave. I need it to fit into nice n cosey "underground" clubs, while still have some edge and bite. I have jazz musicians jaming with me from time to time, and need minimal tracks with space. Its a wide but open audience.

Beatport is your friend for this sort of stuff.

Check out Joseph Capariti. I particularly like Galaxy Express LINK It's pretty dark and dry, sounds like just the sort of stuff you're after.

Other artists to check out.. Adam Beyer - always a techno mainstay.
Sasha Carassi - slightly less well known but turning out some very original tunes.
Spektre - more towards the lighter end, but again, very original and innovative.


If you check out these guys, the labels they release on and the collaborations they work with, you'll soon find many more artists and start to get a feel for yourself about who you're interested in.
