I think this can be an interesting thread given we're on a forum dedicated to this very sort of thing. But I was curious to know whether you listened to much straight up Techno tracks and/or mixes at home and if you buy any of it. 

 

I'm not the party type and drugs put me off so going out dancing isn't particularly interesting to me but I'm into the music.

Have yet to hear it. Thanks for the reminder.

 

I was more asking about singles and DJ sets since that's the majority of the scene.

One of my former coworker played Berlin techno at her place all-the-time : from breakfast to an eventual after party she just wouldn't stop.

Given how kinda fed up I was after just drinking a beer with her I can't imagine how her neighbours are doing.

Not always techno, but I enjoy John Digweed's Transitions podcast. 2 hours of house / progressive / techno on a weekly basis, good guest mixes and live stuff too. Sometimes its very chilled, sometimes banging. One of the best DJs to have lived IMO

This week's is a belter

I rarely go out to techno "clubs" anymore, unless a friend is playing/DJing, so 99% of my listening is done at home, or at work. So yes!

For so many techno listeners on this forum I'm actually surprised there isn't any active techno threads on here.

there've been plenty of techno threads over the years (psst, Surgeon might be gay).

 

the idea of techno "listening" music isn't new either, in fact it was something in that realm - Sandwell District - that pulled me back into techno 5-6 years ago. it's also classic commute music.

I've been listening to Rrose compulsively for a while now, at home, walking etc... but never in a club. So I guess techno is perfectly fine for home listening.

 

Given the often minimalist compositions, the production / sound-design itself makes techno perfect on smaller yet accurate speakers.

That's not available on Apple podcasts, is it (I looked, but I might be searching for it incorrectly)?

Good call. Rrose, Rebekah, Shifted, SHXC.... Ancient Methods, Sigha. All the dark stuff, works well at home imo.

As for Digweed on apple, sorry doesn't look like it...
