    Techno has so much range, and it can affect the mood dramatically - what exactly are you looking for? Happy, dark, industrial, house?

    One song I'm currently liking for a animation is Evil Moogafooga by Spacefunk ;)

    Two great artists

    Two of my favourites you might like to check out are Aphex Twin and Squarepusher. Unfortunately none of their music has been added to the iTMS yet. :( I'm sending requests though!

    I'd love to see Paul Van Dyk added to iTunes as well....there seems to be a big lack of techno on iTunes....:(

    I listen to XMRadio, even at work now, so that makes it easier to here new stuff as well. They have 3 stations set aside to techno.

    There are some really good ones on the iTunes radio stations as well. It's so amazing to finally have iTunes at work! (I have to use a PC.) Hopefully the music store will start adding more to their electronic library! I'll be buying like crazy when it does... wait, I already buy like crazy.. I'll be buying crazi-er! :cool:

    I'm waiting for more Paul Oakenfold & maybe even Hybrid to appear. There's BT there, but only his newest release.

    I think they have a way to go before being up to speed with the techno train.

    techno

    i've been looking for some good electronic music to put together an iPod workout playlist for biking. something with a good beat, interesting, but not offensive. I almost got the chemical brothers best of release, but didn't know if I'd like it enough. Unfortunately they don't show up on iTMS.

    Re: techno

    Well no offense, but most great electronica comes from Europe, and as long as the ITMS is US only, we won't see the great stuff until it gets worldwide i guess. LFO has two albums with excellent instrumental techno tunes; "advance" and the brand new "sheath". None are on ITMS, however :mad:

    Re: I'm looking for some Good Techno!

    Do you really mean techno or rather electronic music in general? At least here (UK), techno is a fairly specific type of electronic music, is almost entirely instrumental and with quite hard beats. Good example of 'real' techno would be the music in this mix -

    http://www.slamevents.com/audio/oct03/slam-pressure9-03p1.mp3 (91MB, you'd get the idea from the first 10 minutes)

    I browsed through iTunes looking for some of the electronic music that i liked (Hybrid, Oakenfold, Chicane, Tiesto etc) to add to dailytunes and found very little unfortunately. Hopefully it'll be much better when the European version comes along, although whether the songs on the European version will be added to the US one is another matter, I suspect not.

    Hmmm

    Not sure if this would fit under "techno" or the broader "electronica", but Boards of Canada makes some great music, in my opinion. In fact they're almost all I listen to on the electronica side of things.

    Boards of Canada is pretty okay. For montages, I like to use works done by The Cynic Project. You can find him at mp3.com do a search.

    If you like the BBC Radio One Essential Mixes, I have all of them, and could sort you out with some copies. With the exception of about 4 mixes, I have every single weekly mix ever broadcast since the show's inception in 1993. :eek: :cool:

    The Reactivate (React label) compilations are great. Also the Nude Dimensions comps for something a bit less frenetic, or Ministry Of Sound for the poppier stuff, or the Cafe Del Mar series to send you to sleep...

    I'm sure I would. What all is on them?
    I've been fortunate enough to see some of these acts live:
    Oakenfold (2X), Chemical Brothers, Sasha & Digweed, & Carl Cox. The later two were okay, but Oakenfold and the Chem Bros were great. The first time I saw Oakenfold (Club Karma Chicago November '99) was incredible. I never listened to techno (except when I was at clubs) until that show. He is 100X better live than on his albums.
