Top Tracks...

Every year there seems to be developments/progressions/movements in the techno sound. And it's really one of the best things about the genre. This year i think it was mostly about the return of the old techno energy/sound. However, there was only 2 people that i know of who have been doing this sound consistantly and they are Ben Klock and Marcel Dettmann. Then there was also the Norman Nodge on Dettmann's label. That's the future right there and what to look out for in 08... Then there was this deeply funky and dopey house sound which was being pushed by Daze Maxim and Stavostrand. Not sure if this sound is a pleasent diversion or a sign of greater things to come but i get the feeling it's the latter. Then there was Digitaline and Bruno Pronsato (solo and Half Hawaii) who dominated too. and that's 2007 right there. nothing more nothing less...

Top Labels:

there's really 3 standouts in my mind then a bracket of 5-10 other quite good ones... i'll keep it to a top 3

1. Perlon
2. Hello Repeat
3. Cadenza


  1. i love the top 50. it is very 'dave'... i know we've talked about it, but you are definitely right on the emerging berghain sound. definitely got potential for the future. will be interesting to see where dettmann, klock and the rest take it...

  2. Quite happy you've mentioned Cadenza here. Been consistently good, and anything by NSI and of course Luciano is amazing.

    Nice blog. Keep it up. Just change that system font, it hurts my eyes!!! :)

  3. thumps up*

    may the techno force be with us*

    One Love*
