Author Minimal Techno Recommendations

Since reading the Plastikman thread here, I've listened to almost nothing besides Plastikman for the past 2 weeks! Don't know how I never got into it before :(

Anyway, I'm looking for recommendations of similar artists. Nice, minimal with a dark edge to it. I loved the later era Plastikman stuff like Consumed and Closer, but the earlier stuff is still amazing too.

Not too into the whole Detroit Techno sound to be honest but that colder, sparse stuff gives me wood nanners

Thanks

definitely check out Hawtin's F.U.S.E project, especially the 'Dimension Intrusion' album. just listened to it again the other day, still sounds great. shit, just look him up on Discogs and see what of his other projects you can find.

not sure if it's what you're looking for, but i'd certainly recommend anything on the Basic Channel or Chain Reaction labels. look for Maurizio as well (same guys as Basic Channel). not quite the same vibe as Plastikman, but worth checking out. i'd say they're much more 'dark' sounding, actually.

for some reason, nothing comes to mind when trying to come up with something that sounds like Plastikman.


polyroy

Robert Hood is a legend.


dogoftears

Emptyset
Also check out the hard tech area- surgeon, regis et al.


thetwlo

maybe some of Mika Vainio's side projects: Philus or ø?
not quite the same, many examples on youtube:

Thanks for all the suggestions lads, keep em coming!

Grabbed some Basic Channel, and Robert Hood to check out. GOnna check out th other suggestions.

Have grabbed as much Richie Hawtin/Plastikman stuff as I can so making my way through all that. Think I'll be putting in a massive order in the record shop I used to work in!!!! They used to have loads of Plastikman stuff in stock, but not too much recently for some reason.

Glad to be of service. Jk maxwell got me into emptyset not sure if hes hanging out here. He is a neverendi g resource of techno goodness.


solitaryzen

As others have said, definitely check out Mika Vainio/Pan Sonic.


doofa beena

yes definately pan sonic,
they used to be called panasonic before they got sued.
saw them once here in san francisco at Recombinant Media Labs
(which has an INSANE sound system by the way)
and it was completely orgasmic.
and this

how do you embed videos,
i tried the embed code and it didnt work very frustrating


tranzfuse

Check out Hawtin's mix CDs as well, you might hear some artists there that catch your ear. His Mixmag Live mix was one of the first electronic things I happened to have bought and heard, and I haven't looked back since.

More on the ambient side, but his From Within stuff with Pete Namlook is also very cool...dark and otherworldly for sure.


digital_steve

Anyone mention sleeparchive yet?


tranzfuse

Oh, and also check out stuff by Convextion, mainly his stuff on a label called Down Low, but also his older things on a label called Matrix (those go for $$$ though).

i totally love convextion but i dont think it is on the same tip

i havent really found much in the same vein as consumed
it is a unique piece

it is minimal techno in a pure sense and doesnt have much to do with the general type of music which gets branded minimal techno. you have to look at acts like pan sonic to get close but hawtin didnt get as nasty as those guys - he sampled a fragment and made a master piece from it

im following this thread keenly in case other people find more on the tip which i do not know about

I would agree with that. And while they may not necessarily be from the same schools I would say that Convextion's music is still worth exploring if you're digging Plastikman and hungry for similar artists. It's definitely worth a listen.

Indeed man. There really is nothing else like it.

Ok - interesting thread for me!
I know the Emptyset guys and love the recordings + saw them do a great live show just a couple of weeks back. Quite simple sounds, but done very well indeed.
I need to get some more record buying done and check sleeparchive.

By the way, when I first heard emptyset, it reminded me of a cd on iDEAL recordings which I'd been given a few years before but then leant to someone and never got it back (DAMN!). Wish I could track it down again - Henrik Rylander, Traditional Arrangements of Feedback.


wavecircle

Jan Jelinek (Farben), Ryoji Ikeda, Rob Babicz.

Anything on Raster Noton.

Truth. Mark Fell, SND, COH, Ikeda, etc.

Also check out Marcel Dettmann. Pretty sick. Although not quite techno, give Patrice Scott a listen, and of course DJ Sprinkles 'Midtown 120 Blues' which is deep house, but to the next level.

Studio One as well.


papercutnoise

So many suggestions here! All very much appreciated smile

Loving what I've checked out so far, but still got a good few more to make my way through.

Emptyset and Sleeparchive have to be my favourites so far.


Babaluma

i'm a big fan of the early 90's german techno scene, a lot of it is pretty minimal, oliver lieb (spicelab), hardfloor, the early harthouse compilations etc.


Liddlepud

Probably not as dark as you're looking for but the new John Tejada album, Parabalas, is excellent and I read an interview that he uses some Eurorack.
