    Well, lately I started to enjoy techno music, but I am still a newbie in this waters, so I need a recomendation.

    I tried to use my last.fm as help, but it's not enough.

    What I enjoy is drum'n'bass and ambient. Mainly I go for Prodigy and Fatboy slim. And if I know every song of The Prodigy, it's not that way for FS.




    I need a good music recomendation. Something ,more punky, with rhytm and bass, or something ambient or rave. I enjoy The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim, Pendulum and a bit of Chemical Brothers. Other artists I had heard 1 or 2 songs that I liked are Psycho Freud, Aphrodite and Faithless.

    Please, no house music as it annoys me.


    Discussion is encouraged, so please, don't just list me 3-4 songs. Say what bands you like and what do you think of the top dnb artists for example.

    Prodigy and FatboySlim are techno ? :crazyeye: You're not looking for techno songs. :) But anyway:

    Kraftwerk and Aphex Twin are rather nice techno bands. I kept being told that Orbital and Underworld are good too but i never got around to listening to them.

    As for stuff close to what you like - cant help you there, i dont listen to too much from those types of songs.

    about as close to punky as you'll get is industrial, I think.

    for "ravey" perhaps you mean trance, which has Oakenfold, Chicane, Digweed.

    Wow, I didn't even know the word "techno" was still in use. I thought it died with "alternative".

    Some good recommendations on this thread. I like D'n'B myself. Whatever that Gino sounding stuff my neighbour plays is my least favourite.

    As we speak, I am wearing a VNV Nation shirt and a Covenant tuque (I don't know if you use that word in England).

    As to the OP. Calling it techno is the first signal of a newb ;) . However, that is okay as you got to start somewhere.

    EDIT: Here is an example of a tuque

    Oribtal's Green (1st) and Brown (2nd) albums, still standstrong as two fantastic albums despite being (gulp) over 15 years old now.

    Chemical Brothers', Exit Planet Dust, Dig Your Own Hole and Surrender albums should not disapoint.

    Leftfield - Leftism, need say no more.

    Yes I'm old skool :D

    And you can check my last.fm for more info.


    Well, I forgot to mention Afrika Bambaataa. And in Rave I mean something, which was described me as rave.

    By ambient I mean Mike Oldfield and Robert Miles.


    Thanks for all the mentions to that moment.

    If you like Robert Miles, you'll probably like ATB, who has put out a lot more stuff than Robert and is generally better, imo.
