After a month long hiatus, the techno chart is back and well-equipped with ten highly-amazing choons from artists all across the spectrum of this beloved genre.
Veterans like Joey Beltram and Swayzak find good footing while newer artists like Miagma and Introversion make their mark. Plus, some of today's top stars like Maceo Plex and Dubspeeka (who makes two appearances) find their way in the chart as well.

1. "THE EMPTY PAGE" - NIERICH [100 % PURE]
Austrian producer, Niereich's newest output on 100 % Pure is a five star outing thanks to two brilliant tunes on one release. First, the storming, title track which features big-room style synth-stabs that will destroy any dance-floor. Second, the contrasting B-side which is featured as my top techno track of the week. A highly unique stomper that nearly overshadows the title track thanks to two beautifully filtered melodies that perfectly coalesce into a gorgeous techno harmony.
2. "OVERSHADOW (JOEY BELTRAM REMIX)" - AGENT ORANGE [BITTEN RECORDS]
Joey Beltram isn't just one of techno's pioneers, he's also a consistent purveyor as well thanks to expertly crafted floor business like this particular remix of "Overshadow" by New York producer, Agent Orange.
3. "SO GOOD" - MONIKA KRUSE MEETS PIG&DAN [TERMINAL M]
4. "MOD1" - DUBSPEEKA [SKELETON]
Wrap your mind around Dubspeeka's concept EP on Skeleton which features five uniquely crafted techno pieces including "Mod1" as featured here as one of the best techno tracks of the week.
5. "YOU" - MIAGMA [E-BEAMZ]
Miagma steps onto the recording scene with this nostalgic, rave-heavy tune which exudes cassette-recorded, third generation mixtape copies circa 1992.
6. "DYSTOPIA" - INTROVERSION [ARTS]
A relatively new German producer by the name of Introversion joins the well-respected ranks of the ARTS subdivision, ARTS Collective.
7. "5TH DIMENSIONAL GROOVE" - MACEO PLEX VS. SWAYZAK [ELLUM]
UK dance music veteran, Swayzak teams up with the Ellum label boss for a pumping techno outing playfully titled "5th Dimensional Groove."
8. "GET IT ON (COPY PASTE SOUL REMIX)" - KOCLEO [INTEGRITY RECORDS]
