I think a lot of what is being mentioned now is more techno than minimal techno.

A good place to track down some good minimal/techno/house mixes is on soundcloud. This guy called R_co puts LOADS of mixes up.

When I used to be into techno, I was a sucker for Sleeparchive. Has had a huge influence with minimalistic techno.....

sleeparchive is incredible! great call.

really like the echochord 12"s that have been coming out..lots of weird sloo grit there.

the inertia series comps have been scorching my turntable as well lately.

Been into minimal techno for like 15-20 years now! A big focus for me on the modules I make is to create things that would be useful for making techno. I still have not made a lot of the modules I need/want yet.

Anyways random favourites off the top of my head:

Stewart Walker - anything old (stabiles, reclamations etc. were masterpieces in minimalism)


Robert Hood: (sorry blatantly Detroit so maybe not your thing but so hypnotic)


Mathew Jonson - Freedom Engine (his early stuff on iiwii were amazing)


Andy Vaz - 1-1 (Sound Variation)
http://music.yahoo.com/andy-vaz/albums/sound-variation-1-1--42548190


G-Man - Quo Vadis (classic!!! love anything that sounds underwater)


Farben - Bayreuth (basically anything by Jan Jelinek as Farben is gold)


Marco Carola - Question series has some nice deep stuff hidden in there'


Two Lone Swordsmen - Glide By Shooting (more deep techno/house than minimal but one of my all time favorite tracks and very trippy)

Stumbled across his sets today - f-ing loads to dig into. Months and months of listening pleasure.

i haven't really payed attention to minimal for a long time but my favorite artist was always bruno pronsato. he had so much swing and fun / deep music. he is playing next week in berlin and i cant wait to finally see him.

i agree that a lot of what has been mentioned in this thread isnt really minimal but a lot of good stuff has been mentioned.

This is a work in progress from me. I'd call it minimal techno (someone else called it house though).

Haven't had a listen but figured it would be of some interest because Sleeparchive has been mentioned a bunch.

I love this track, really a shame they could never put out a second full length release.

Awesome SlayerBadger! This is also my passion for the last 20+ years. I still play Quo Vadis in my set all the time. Minimal is more a state of mind than a genre...anything can be "minimal". Much of what is being called minimal is really just techno. Didn't know you were a tech-head intellijell...that just up'd your stock with me thumbs up

Found Luke Hess via FXHE - not minimal - his FXHE releases are very dubby:

Really been enjoying his mixes (haven't even listened to this one yet..)

The Studio 1 stuff is so amazing. Timeless sounding yet I can't believe how old it really is. When I think of how most techno sounded at the time, especially at raves and such, it makes his music sound like it was sent from 20 years in the future.

What I love most about those records is the polyrhythms. Almost euclidian patterns with extremely subtle modulations.
