    Techno music thread

    I was wondering if there was any old techno music fans amongst us. I spent a huge part of the 90s in clubs and all nighters like rezerection. If so give us some of your favourite tunes. I’ll start.

    not my favourite song, but one I just remembered.

    They sold out a bit. I preferred ultra sonic. Seen them loads of times at the calton.

    Love techno mate.

    Not into cheesy stuff really but quite like some of the old school rave, fantasia etc.

    Love Dave Clarke, check out this old mix

    I’m not going to lie, I did quite like some of the cheesy stuff, but I also loved the real hardcore stuff and a bit of breakbeat as well.
    I loved this song

    I was into it, preferred the detroit and the german stuff to the cheesy hardcore. The Trésor stuff from Berlin was absolutely fantastic. A lot of us were the same, drifted from house to techno to electro and then stopped listening to it completely when we got old and sensible and the big commercial clubs took over.

    Was it "Sublime" that they used to hold at Wilkie House?

    I wasn't a regular, but some of the messiest, wildest, most brilliant nights of my life were in there. I only think I went a couple of times but if I'd gone much more then I probably wouldn't be here today.

    (I also remember how bleak the few days afterwards could be, I shudder thinking about it).


    Not sure if you would call it "techno" exactly but there were a few 90s "dance bands" that I saw around that time (95-98) who were outstanding live - Orbital used to be quite an experience, Lemonjelly at T in the Park were pretty good too.

    Tried to gain entry to Trésor nightclub in Berlin last summer and as expected knocked back at the door. Heard all the stories about the techno clubs in Berlin and their ultra strict door policy but we tried around 4 clubs and didn't get in a single one.

    We were told to dress very minimalistic, keep calm in the queue and have some knowledge on who was playing that night but no luck. Anyone else experienced this in Berlin?

    Loved Orbital after being introduced to them by a good friend.

    I know what you mean by definition - I always thought of them as a sort of 'intelligent techno'. What got me most was that they recorded fantastic studio albums but also put on outstanding live performances, where they would adapt their tracks to reflect they were playing in front of a crowd, almost like rock bands often do.

    I saw Lenny Dee a few times. The German stuff from that period really set the standard.

    Orbital one of my all time favourite, still have my 12" of Chime. Saw then about 5 or 6 times, brilliant band.

    It was just slightly before my time really. The first dj ever saw was cajmere. Had no clue who he was but got me hooked on that scene for years.

    Studios were a dive but great fun. Some dodgy characters up to all sorts and don't think I ever saw fight. Compare that to George street and you wonder why e's aren't issued by bouncers in the way into every club😂

    My mate was just there at new year. Said it is basically impossible to get in unless you are in a mixed group, ie no groups of lads. In terms of dress, he was wearing his kilt as he had been advised the opposite, dress in a way you stand out from the average crowd. Who knows what the rules are.

    He was at Berghain, apparently do what you like, apart from take photographs😂😂

    I was into it early 90's, best times probably around 91-92. Calton Studios nearly every Saturday night and went to all the early things at Livingston Forum, Technodrome, Rezerection from the first one till around 93 (I think) and also a few big ones down south like Fantazia at Castle Donnington.

    Tunes that stand out for me were, amongst many other great ones:

    I saw them at the Cream Millennium party in Liverpool.

    They mixed Chime into the bells at midnight, it was outstanding.

    Pure and Wave, loved it. Remember a few of us on a night shift heading there in a taxi then getting back to work in time to clock off. Mad times
