    The Crystal Method is part of the "big three" as in the big beat electronic artists: The Prodigy, The Crystal Method, and The Chemical Brothers.

    See if you like them and then we can provide more suggestions. :)

    if you like early techno, check out Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Kevin Saunderson, and Eddie Fowlkes. some more well known artists are Alan Oldham (T-1000), Richie Hawtin (Plastikman), Carl Cox, Aphex Twin, Ken Ishii and Moby (1990 to around 1995).

    i was REALLY into that stuff back in high school(9 years ago :wtc: ) so i know a lot about it, it's kinda nice to see that people still appreciate it or are just discovering it :coolugh:

    sorry you feel that way, they were great IMO back when i was 15-18 and everyone i partied with in Miami felt the same way. i don't listen to techno anymore and was never really into house or trance so i'm better off with breaks and drum n' bass dj's but the guy asked so i answered him.

    if you have such perfect taste, list em off buddy! :hsd:
     
  11. Look for bands like Psychaesthetic and SKinny Puppy if you wanna go to the harder side of electronic music. Dieselboy is definitely a good pick for anyone who likes their music unable to be played in an unplugged setting.

    chrissy is the only one so far who knows what shes talking about when people say techno

    heres some more artists to check out:

    adam beyer
    cari lekebusch
    speedy j
    deetron
    henrik b
    mhonolink
    ignition technician
    adam jay
    chris liebing
    JEFF MILLS! this man can turn dog crap into a hell of a tune
    gayle san
    umek
    technasia
    marco bailey
    marco carola
    surgeon
    ben sims
    cave
    christian varela
    dave clarke

    it takes a different kind of ear to appreciate true techno, since it forgoes blatant melodies (such as in non-goa/psy trance) in favor of subtle sounds, yet those sounds work together to form an abstract-like melody of sorts. its far more beat and groove oriented than most of the other artists listed.

    also, and this is true moreso for techno than any other EDM genre, its best listened to in liveset form. honestly, the only reason to listen to singles is if youre DJing it. you can get some mixes free of charge from www.hardsignal.com - all you have to do is register :)

    i suppose, he's played here in atlanta countless times, plus a friend of mine used to date him so she would drag me out to his shows all the damn time. i had to go with some friends to a few places in the southeast and he happened to be on the same tour. he ended up playing the same set...once i saw that the luster was gone:squint:
