Techno/Dance music

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by Mr.QuakQuak, Feb 19, 2005.

  1. Considering some of you have a nice broad base of music knowledge, I'm wondering is anyone can name a few good artists that make good techno or dance music.

    Any help is welcome and appreciated.

    I like Orbital a lot. Not quite sure if that fits into the Techno category or what not as, IMO, the genre is more divided up in little sections than Metal. :rolleyes:

    I like an old band called O3. They had one big hit in the early 90's sometime, but they're still around. Definitely worth a checkout. :)
  4. Daft Punk are a good place to start.

    The underground dance music scene is vast, rivaling in size the rock scene, from rave to house to IDM etc.

    Here's a good place to get a feel for what's out there
  5. Haha - was waiting for this

    I played for years in a band that made little money, and i was determined to make a livin out of music.

    so i became a dj (for many years, but back in the fold now)

    check out


    anything on the Tinrib label (be warned, its highly addictive - good f**kin dance, can't rate it highly enough - just excellent)

    For some more commercial dance, check out Ministry Of Sound - always quality product

    I have always wanted to turn this kind of music into a live product, and now it seems to be coming together.

    Have a look at Kylie Minogue or Madonna's band - seriously good muso's playing dancey music - way yay!!!!
  6. thanks for all the help

  9. Propellerheads are great as well. Check out Apollo 440, their best album is "Electro Glide in Blue".

    Check out

    They have a pop-up (Flash?) that will let you sample the many techno/trance/house/etc. artists/songs to your liking. A lot of their tunes are streamed from

    Just click the "Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music v2.5" button and it'll start up.

    @ Against Will - I forgot how much I liked Daft Punk, Da Funk is probably my favorite track by them.
