Default Techno/Dance/etc listeners I call you

Our local techno/dance station changed platforms to the same EXACT thing as "Kiss 106.1" which is just FUCKING BULLSHIT MUSIC THAT EVERY GOD DAMNED STATION PLAYS. IF I HEAR USHER ONE MORE FUCKING TIME I WILL RIP HIS HEAD OFF AND SHIT DOWN HIS NECK!

Anyway, since we have SHIT radio around I need some suggestions of groups/DJs/bands to try in the Techno, Dance, Trance, Rave, etc genre. I'll be getting an MP3 player for my car for the purpose of never tuning into an AM/FM station again.

The CDs I've bought/borrowed from friends are:
VNV - Empires (great band here)
Rob Dougan - Furious Angels
Darude - Before the Storm
DJ Encore singles and albums
Ian van Dahl - Lost & Found and some singles
Lichtenfels (dunno what title it is has 2 good songs on it;sounds likes a melody and kill the silence)
Robert Miles (bought 2 cds of his)
PPK singles
4 Strings singles

So all you dance music buffs out there (which includes Swamp--who might know the most lol since he IS a DJ) I need some good techno/dance. I love German and Russian shit and everything inbetween. Songs like Darude, PPK, Lichtenfels, VNV, Robert Miles, and etc are what I listen to alot. Thanks for any help you can provide. I plan on buying these songs, so I need artists and album/single names. I'll listen to the samples before I buy the high quality digital version. <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>

Sweet I'll throw your mixes on some CDRs. This is the kind of info I needed. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif> And PPK - Resurrection is the fucking shit! I've got the Hard Trance mix and the utterly insanely fuckingly awsome Space Club mix--I drool everytime they come up in my WinAMP rotation. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

Good picks. Certain techno-tracks approach pure audio euphoria; the way the way the lines and chorus sync up in "Straight Ahead" gives me goosebumps. The same goes for Gabriel and Dresden's mix of Jewel's "Serve the Ego" -- that one rocks beyond words -- uhmmm... let's see, Deep Forest's "Deep Floresta" is great. "Lola's Theme" is awesome. "Addicted to Bass" by Puretone, Elvis & JXL's "Little Less Conversation a Little More Action", The Lost Brothers' "Cry Little Sister" mix, "Rock Your Body, Rock" by Ferry Corsten, Narcotic Thrust's "Red Blooded Woman" mix, anything by Basement Jaxx, anything by BT (pinnacle of the genre as far as technique goes, IMHO, especially Emotional Technology; try listening to "Superfabulous" and "Somnambulist".)

I've listened to plenty of techno, and ya'll owe yourselves a good listen to the aforementioned tracks. There's something almost mystical about parts of them, seriously.

God, there's lots of others. Good electronica is t3h rock.

Listen to: DJ Encore - I See Right Through to You (Extended Version), it's one of the many songs that gives me a euphoria feeling when I listen to it. <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>

Also:
XTM & DJ Chunky - Fly on the Wings of Love
PPK - ResuRection (Space Club Mix) --> got to be one of the best ever
Lichtenfels - Sounds Like a Melody (Original) --> one of my new favorites
Ian van Dahl - Will I (Radio Edit)
Final Fantasy - I Close My Eyes (Techno Club Mix)

Ah, both classic.

This song is absolutely BITCHIN. I forgot the name of it, glad it was mentioned. Luckily, it was on Rhapsody.

Haven't heard these yet, but I'm gonnagetem. Now, go listen to "Serve the Ego" by Gabe and Dresden. The way it all comes together right at 5:00 nearly makes me go comatose with audio savoritude. <img src=smilies/thumb.gif>

If you want difficult (yet rewarding) music, try any of the following artists (this is IDM or electronica, my personal favorite genre for listening to):

Amon Tobin
Autechre
Aphex Twin
Boards of Canada
M83
Mu-ziq
Nobukazu Takemura
Plaid
Squarepusher
Anything else off the "Warp" or "Ninja Tune" labels.

Semi-danceable Stuff:
Add N to (x)
Cex
Eat Static
Juno Reactor
Kid 606
LAB4

Poppish and/or danceable stuff:
Basement Jaxx
Chemical Brothers
Crystal Method
Lemon Jelly
Lionrock
Orbital
Prodigy
Underworld

Industrial/metal-edged:
KMFDM
Nine Inch Nails
Ministry
White Zombie
Velvet Acid Christ


These are some of the big names. I've repeated some of the artists mentioned before, and left out a few that should have probably been mentioned. In my experience, these guys always put out good (if often hard as hell) stuff.
