Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind, but let’s never forget good music! Out with the old and in with the new, we’re onto another great year! I hope your hangover was worth it and your resolutions are in effect. Here’s the first list of the top ten in techno for the week, and I imagine it’ll pair quite well with all of those new gym memberships out there...

1. “Opa” Kolsch, Kompakt
A massive song from a massive album, this song by Danish producer Kolsch demonstrates his mastery of melody, and you need to improve your life by grabbing his 2013 album 1977 ASAP.
2. "Quicksand" Jacques Greene, LuckyMe Records
A serene song by Jacques Greene slowly grabs you, and you just sink right into loving it…
3. ”Send It up (Craig Williams Remix)” Kanye West
This techno remix by Craig Williams dissects one of Yeezus’ harder hitting songs and capitalizes upon the strongest elements for something special.
4. “Family Guy (Loco Dice Remix)” Carl Cox, Intec Digital
Great things happen when worlds collide, and Loco Dice seems to have quite the soothing touch on a solid Carl Cox original.
5. ”Don’t Go” Amir Alexander, secretsundaze
A recent December release off of secretsundaze, this deep tech tune starts out in a fairly bland manner, until it starts to have some fun and gets after it.
6. “The Final Touch” Feroziana, Bedrock
This jam opens up the Bedrock Autumn/Winter mix, and its softer side hides a moody build that heats things up.
7. “Hot Dog (Florian Meindl Remix)” Darren Emerson, Bedrock
Another release from Bedrock, although harder hitting, had to be included because a pounding beat should not be ignored, it has a great sinister sound.
8. "Untitled (Deetron remix)" Paul Woolford
A remix that wants it all, fusing tasty acid elements with a pleasant house vocal. The result is a great techno adventure, always staying one step ahead of your ears.
9. "Sensorium" Scan X, Herzblut Records
It slams you right from the start, and it keeps it fresh until an amazing minimalist ending shuts it down.
10.”Over the Moon” Macromism, Tronic
A young duo in their early twenties, Macromism surprises with a great ability to weave their youthful energy with established minimal influences for a tune ripe for dance floor destruction.
