Excellent Stuff! ^

Some more.
























And a bit of unsettling industrial grade electro to top it off then.

listening to my old Spotify list. Found this gem that I totally forgot. It may be a bit different that what’s got posted here already. Still an awesome techno track. Pure shaman vibes.

Nice, thank you for the continued recommendations. Lot's of really killer stuff in this thread, but you know what's fucked up? I primarily listen to music driving to and from work, well, that hasn't been happening for the past two weeks and won't be for some time.

Welp, I'm freaked out so now I'm sitting on my couch drinking cuban rum I got in mexico and listening to this stuff on headphones.The stuff I like best is sort of meta-techno i think.

Very good indeed, Viewlexx. Very firmly in the electro corner though. With a lot of trips into other flavors like oldschool Detroit/Chicago Techno and Italo(disco), granted. All of it mysterious, weird and most of it dark. If you like this record label Bunker is another (also Dutch) label you might enjoy. Legowelt also releases on both labels iirc.

Bangin' Techno says it well enough to me
though I'm a 90's old-fart raver kook, so take it fwiw

OP track has a British approach to the mix elements a la Dave Clarke(who is also great at old-school electro), check the Red3 12" for some of the thickest kicks ever. Joey Beltram and Steve Stoll produced many tracks like this too.

When it comes to weaving tracks like these into a set, it's hard to top Claude Young imho

^Young = Ace

Red 2 deserves a mention now that Clarke has come up.


Also some with lyrics.




A funky one.


And again a bangin' one.

Oh, and some approaches to play this stuff live from Surgeon:

Discrete machines:

He also does modular:


Several versions of his setup are floating about on modulargrid including cases published by himself but none up to date as far as I can see.

I would highly recommend checking out the Bunker records discography.
