One of the most important labels in the last decade and now

Solid producer of slamming techno that keeps you on your toes. From a time when underground techno was still fun and not too serious.

Top notch funky techno; you can hear this guy used to be (and still is) a top notch drummer. 10 points.

Avantgarde breakbeat acid mayhem like you never heard it before. A masterpiece.

Very impressive, idiosyncratic debut from Taylor Deupree on the cult Tension label. Quirky industrial romanticism sitting well outside the mainstream techno sound

Tic Tac is the main one and you all know; the heaviest grungey acid groove to hit a dancefloor in the 90s.

One of the foundations of minimal techno. Heavily underrated today.

Worth it for the sneaky bassline and dusty mix on "Islington" alone

Perfect use of voice sampling in the haunting title track. A fine example of "less is more".

Can't disagree with you on Dave Angel. Funk techno extraordinaire. Vogel got the industrial machinery integrated harder though.

Solid album in his unmistakable style; very beautiful touching passages crop up among the chaotic, but not unpleasant rhytmic semi-improvisations. Widely available, probably a decent amount pressed.

Never surpassed grungy techno schlager interpretations. Hard to do something like this today.

NIce little evocative W Burns remix. Original is fun, retroesque but still acceptable. This is still cheap, go for it!

Soul searching dance music that goes deeeep.

Instantly recognisable sound somewhere between New York house and Basic Channel.
Dave Angel

Bridged the early Detroit/Chicago sound with more ravey/euro elements and in the early to mid-90s one of the most funky dudes in techno. Uplifting without ever being cheesy.

Not your standard hard aggressive techno record and this one stands out as does most of the Monrella output. There's an wonderful primitive rhythmic dynamic here different than most of the stuff around.

The B2 is the funkiest Studio 1 track of the series. Pure cologne boogie magic.

My favorite of the series. Stoic sexiness. A funky Clint Eastwood cut to vinyl. Never surpassed.

'Film Grain' is my favorite track by the Disco Nihilist (brilliant moniker). Joyful and bittersweet at the same time. Precious record.

'Pullback' has that sparse transparent sound popular in 90s techno. Insanely funky and mixable. Personal favorite.

'Luv Luv Lik Lik' is tear-inducing beautiful. This is by Gary Martin, the unsong hero of the weird funky end of 90s underground techno.

With 'Clear Air Turbulence' Cristian Vogel proves you can make fast hardcore industrial techno funky. Not an easy feat.

I find Two Fat Downloads as his weakest or most conventional. This one is more like Vogel undiluted.

Hi speed quirky electro business with some trancey undertones. Highly original, though not a floor packer as much as his other output.

"A Time Warp Synthesizer" just goes and goes and goes. Hits the sweet psychedelic trance spot with enough toughness to keep you grounded. On top if his game for 15 years now, this guy. Respect.

Obscure, dada techno record from the centre of that sound in the 90s. Not quite succesful in what it tries to accomplish, but still quite unlike anything else in its approach. Check if you can find it!

One of the best hard techno records ever. Point me to a producer who can integrate 'funk' harder and more driving than this and I'll buy you a sandwich.

A tough groove for eternity with a whimsical feel on top. You need to be Gary Martin to pull this one off. When the rimshots hits halfway in this reaches its zenith.
