Heckman is the pinnacle of German techno beginnings. Hard, abrasive, melodic and climatic. He can do different styles as well. And in his later years has now fully delved into full ambient albums. His name might be more famous if he followed trends like trance. You won't find much more dance floor destruction then on his Drax releases. So aggressive and mind melting that you don't need any mind altering influences. Just turn off the lights and watch the vinyl spin. Still underrated after all these years...

Heckmann's techno is at its' peak when he gives us his take on EBM. He's the master at peak-time stormers, with sawtooth basslines and excellent use of sounds and percussion underpinning them, usually accompanied by an excellent denouement i.e. EBM 1 and Sundancer. Further, his remixes tend to rework the original track completely, into something that's usually a big improvement on the original.......
