Try that song by Darude called 'Sandstorm' once you've listened to it a couple of times, you will never want to listen to techno again  Big thumbs up

Sandstorm is not techno. Its trance, or potentially breakbeat if you got that one mix of it.

If you want some good, basic introductions to electronic dance music, i recommend the following CDs in the following genres:

"Tranceport" by Paul Oakenfold (it pains me to recommend this to anyone, but here we are) (Trance)
"Essential Mix: Mixed by Boy George" - Boy George (UK 2 Step Garage)
"Global Underground 010 : Athens" - Danny Tenaglia (Progressive House)
"Relentless Beats" - Misstress Barbara (Techno)
"Mixed Live" - Donald Glaude (House Music)

If you just want ridiculous fun:

"Smile Mix Session vol 1" - Scott Henry (old school breakbeat)
"Headliners" - Tall Paul (trance/progressive trance)
"Hardhouse Anthems 3" - Ed Real (UK Hard House)
Anything happy hardcore *eek*

There you go.

Haha! My brother listens to it all the time, and while I can't call it true techno, it's not one of my favorites.
Deltaownsall, may I suggest looking up the song "Matrix II" by The Cynic Project on Google. It's the song featured on the UA video mentioned on the forums at http://united.imkeww.com/. I downloaded another version of it recently; feel free to email me and I'll send you it.

-N243NW  Big thumbs up

Darude's Sandstorm trance? Gigneil, you really think so? I'm taking it you don't really appreciate trance music. I'm an avid listener of all types of trance from epic Dutch trance to progressive trance to hard trance and anything in between. I would never have thought of Darude's Sandstorm as trance. Maybe if anything it would be somewhat akin to hard trance.

To me techno is club music. It's not the sort of music that is good for home listening. Perhaps if I didn't live in an apartment and didn't worry about noise levels I might listen to more of it. Techno is music that is good for hard, relentless dancing.

I agree that people hold up Paul Oakenfold's Tranceport as the gold starter album for trance, but I find it to be much more progressive than what I would call true trance music. For a long time I also recommended Tranceport to people interested in progressive trance/house, but lately I've come to decide that Paul Van Dyk's The Politics of Dancing is a much better introduction to the world of progressive trance/house.

Do you people have any idea what Techno really is?

Try:

Jeff Mills
Joey Beltram
Laurent Garnier
Derrick May
Ritchie Hawtin

Thats techno.

Sandstorm is cheesy-Euro trance. Good in its time but played to death by Dave Pearce, hence consigned to the "non-play" category...

N243NW,

Matrix ][ by the Cynic Project is trance, not techno. however its an absolutely fab tune. Have it since 1999 and still listen to it regularly.

Okay, so my techno stuff is way off, then. I have several of the 'vs.' songs mostly "Sandstorm" based but I also like Way Out West and Deepest Blue. Does Caater still make songs? I liked them too.

GO CANUCKS!!

Does the Postal Service or Her Space Holiday Count, they're pretty good.
My favorite techno would have to be Aphex Twin though.

It it. I do. And yes, I do.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Music can be defined by its beat structure, and Sandstorm bears more resemblance to trance than it does to progressive or hard house.

Do you people have any idea what Techno really is?

I'm fairly sure I do.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Ritchie Hawtin is a great way to go. But I like Barbara better.

The Aphex Twin was a friend of one of my university pals. The Aphex Twin hails from Cornwall in SouthWestern England and he used to spend a lot of his time playing flight sims with a towel over his head and the monitor to be totally immersed. he was a bit wierd really.


I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

Weird maybe, but hes sure made it big, seeing as how he's running his own record label now and stuff.

Remember Vapourspace? The guitarist in one of my bands grew up and learned electronica and studio production with him. He recommends Vapourspace.

Techno sounds much better when it's accompanied by videos of UAL jets!

As Kay has said, it may not officially be techno, but it's cool anyway.

Long live the A330!
