The spectrum of techno is a vast one and this week's chart is a great demonstration of the full spectrum. There's Cristoph, who crosses over with 'Divvina', Shlomi Aber bangs it out with 'Conexion', and Technasia gets downright groovy with his remix of Claptone's 'Heartbeat'. So whatever your style or preference may be, there is certainly something for everyone within these ten brand new techno tunes.
1. 'DIVVINA' - CRISTOPH [VIVA MUSIC]
When it comes to accessible tech house with just the right amount of edge, UK producer Cristoph has unofficially taken the authority in that department. He's released on leading labels such as Truesoul, Noir Music, and now on Steve Lawler's VIVA Music imprint with a massive tune called 'Divvina', which I expect to take on a life of it's own and cross over into house and techno sets all over the world this Summer.
2. 'CONEXION' - SHLOMI ABER [BE AS ONE]
Tech House stalwart, Shlomi Aber goes the deep and dark techno route on his latest release called The Warfare EP on his own Be As One imprint.
3. 'SEHNSUCHT' - CHARLOTTE DE WITTE [TURBO RECORDINGS]
Belgian producer Charlotte De Witte returns to Tiga's Turbo Recordings imprint with a well rounded six track EP that features this ridiculously good techno track called 'Sehnsucht.'
4. 'CARRY YOU AWAY' - PARIDE SARACENI [TRUESOUL]
Earlier in the year, Paride Saraceni enjoyed his biggest EP to date on the Truesoul imprint and now just five months later he's back on the label with yet another scorching EP that's every bit dynamic as it is driving.
5. 'THE ENEMY (JULIAN JEWEIL REMIX)' - MATADOR FT FELIX DA HOUSECAT [RUKUS]
To be quite honest, no one on this planet sounds like French techno producer Julian Jeweil and he proves that over and over again on all of his remixes and original productions. Check out this latest demonstration of his unique sound on this re-rub of Matador's 'The Enemy'.
6. 'HEARTBEAT (TECHNASIA REMIX)' - CLAPTONE FEAT. NATHAN NICHOLSON [EXPLOITED]
Claptone's 'Heartbeat' may just be a nearly perfect meeting between indie and house music, but Technasia's remix of the track elevates it a few notches to create a trip through seven minutes of silky smooth tech house.
7. 'IT'S TIME' - GORGE [MOBILEE RECORDS]
Mannheim producer, Gorge makes his debut on the Mobilee imprint with a hypnotic tech house tune that features expertly placed shimmering audio effects.
8. 'TWISTED MINDS' - LOCO & JAM [TRONIC]
The Northern Ireland duo, Loco & Jam make a mammoth debut on the long running Tronic imprint with The Twisted Minds EP, which features the massive title track that is sure to devastatingly rock any dancefloor!
9. 'SWEPT' - PETER BAILEY [TRANSMIT RECORDINGS]
Fire hot techno from New York based producer Peter Bailey on the New York based imprint, Transmat Recordings!
10. 'WINDMAKER' - SEBASTIAN MULLAERT [HYPERCOLOUR]
Sebastian Mullaert is famously known as one half of the prolific Swedish duo known as Minilogue and he is quite capable of churning out his own prolific work as well. Exhibit A: His latest genre-defying electronic music composition entitled 'Windmaker'.
