Default Techno Journal

I decided since this is the majority of what I listen to these days I'd benefit from having a journal to jot down various albums in.

Recommendations open I'm really into UK Bass/Deconstructed Club/Deep House/Trance/Psytrance/Psybient/Drum and Bass/Industrial Techno/Dub Techno/Dubstep/Future Garage/Wonky/Vaporwave (preferably releases like Esprit and Vektroid)/Bubblegum Bass/Darkwave/New Beat/EBM/etc.

Spoiler for recs:
Jlin
Georgia

Spoiler for reviews:


For my first review, I'll be doing Amon Tobin's Permutations

How about some footwork?





And get on some Demdike Stare and Raime.

Amon Tobin - Permutation
Genre: Nu Jazz, Drum n Bass, IDM
Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

https://rateyourmusic.com/release/al...n/permutation/

A very eclectic release combining jazz instrumentation and cacophonous drums. Borders on dark at points and whimsical at others, though it keeps a relatively light hearted atmosphere throughout. If anything, the length gets to it though it manages to retain interesting throughout the runtime.

8/10

Jlin - Black Origami
Genre: Footwork, D-club, IDM, Afro-House
Location: Gary, Indiana, USA

https://rateyourmusic.com/release/al...black-origami/

It's pretty tight, it's a rhythm fest every which way you look at it, and I love how the genre utilizes extended woodblock passages in the drum programming it's just a wild sound. The basswork however I would say is better in other releases I've heard in the genre and overall the album needs more d-club and to do something different, it kinda drags in the full run time but the african house influenced drum programming does give a lot to work with and in terms of those textures this album rips.

7/10

Raime - Quarter Turns Over a Living Line
Genre: Ambient Dub, Dark Ambient, Industrial
Location: London, UK

https://rateyourmusic.com/release/al...a-living-line/

What I love <3 it's dark and brooding and reminds of The Haxan Cloak but if yr in the mood this takes you places. It's headbobbing and terrifying all at the same time and it's the first 9/10 I've had in a few days for sure.

9/10

Daft Punk - Human After All
Genre: Electroclash, Electro-Industrial
Location: Paris, France

My new favorite daft punk album, blends this talk-boxy effect and other industrial-esque soundblips for a journey through hypnotic dance hit after hit. Kicking myself for just now getting more into the group.

Skream - Skream!
Genre: Dubstep, Grime, 2-step
Location: Bromley, UK

https://rateyourmusic.com/artist/skream

Great infectious OG dubstep. Midnight Request line is a dance classic that I've been listening to since high school when I joined the forum. Unlike later dubstep releases and even other releases of the time this feels a lot closer to reggae at points and retains the ragga groove. Definitely check this out if you're a fan of any type of UK electronic.

Orbital - In Sides
Genre: IDM, Ambient Techno
Location: Sevenoaks, UK

Oh, it's pretty bangin'. But is it banging enough? Could be a lot more banging for a techno release but it fixates more on subtled drum beats and off kilter toms. Which isn't a bad thing, on a release like this it only compliments the muted synths but at the same time this gives little to latch onto.

7/10

Lee Gamble - KOCH
Genre: Outsider House, Techno, Industrial Techno, Ambient Techno
Location: Birmingham, UK

https://rateyourmusic.com/release/al...e_gamble/koch/

An exciting ambient outsider house effort, all you need to know to sell you on this one is that one track's drums are composed of coins flipping and other various metallic noises layered over subtle keys.
