Marc Acardipane was PCP's primary music producer, and he layered waves of distortion onto a wall of sound that stands the test of time.

List of electronic music genres
Over the last decade however, purists of the scene have become increasingly worried with how said scene has become an industry. In a recent interview, DVS1 drew attention to this issueclaiming that techno essentially now has a commercial value, which has caused it to lose some of its character.
The techno heavyweight hypothesised that areas of the genre are being driven by vast amounts of money and the maximisation of profits and no longer by an innate love for the tunes.
To celebrate techno for doing what it does best — bangers — we have compiled a strong list of some of the standout techno slammers that have been released this decade. A stomping kick drum is to Len Faki what a warm Red Stripe is to a dark, sweaty dancefloor: essential. As a label, Minimum Syndicat make it no secret that its ethos is strictly pedal to the metal techno, and Fullbourn Haze is the perfect representation of this.
Truly a peak-time production, the drop alone is enough to descend any dancefloor into oblivion. Bortz hit the nail on the head with this one with squelchy, brown-noise-esque sounds that could extract the filthiest of bass faces out of anyone. Still played frequently by Klock among many other techno stalwarts, this tune is one that you could expect to hear deep into the early hours of a Monday morning at the Berghain.
20 of the best techno tracks released this decade
A common feature in the majority of the Floorplan sets he now plays alongside his daughter Lyric, this song will indeed never grow old.
What took him so long? Moving onto a political note now sorry not sorrywith Manni Dee releasing an EP on Leyla Records that was a two pronged attack: one of the dancefloors he unleashes it on, and another on the Conservative party. What could David Cameron have done in that would have made him so angry I wonder? Regardless of the political agenda, this track is a high-octane stomper.
The breakthrough DJ of the last two years, Amelie Lens was booked for 4 festivals in In she was the second most booked DJ in the worldhaving been booked for 28 festivals, behind only Nina Kraviz. This dark production from Lens has rightfully earned a spot in our list.

This acidic masterpiece backs up the reputation that has been placed on Anetha as one to watch.

Hailing from Detroit, DJ Bone is a masterful producer of techno and a wizard on the decks.Techno trolls are a race of trolls who appear in Trolls World Tour. The leader of this aquatic Tribe is King Trollex. They have dark bodies covered in bright neon colours, a heart symbol on their chest. Their hair is bright neon colors as well, they have a beating heart shape on their chest.
They have fins for feet and their ears are Gill-like, they are the only tribe whose nose has no definition, if they have one. Their hair resembles fibre optic threads. They tend to have a single-unibrow across their forehead.
Their teeth are designed to look like the bars on a music visualizer. Their entire body glows brightly. The Techno Trolls are mostly randomly generated and few have unique designs.
What tends to change in these generic designs is just their color. Females are identifiable by their eyelashes. In scenes with the random design generations, they are grouped mostly by color; i. Baby members of this tribe have a single fin rather then them being parted into two and have a single hair strain. They are much smaller then adults. Their music tends to be simple sample mixing and loops they focus on creating a good vibe. Techno Troll dancing generally involves them jumping to the beat of the music.
The Trolls gather into large crowds to jump together in synchronisation and form waves of movement that flow with the rhythm of the music, the jumping causes them to act like a music visualizer. They also will do quick, sudden movements with their head and hands. They tend not to use their lower body because of the lack of legs, fins as well as their hair are allowed to flow freely to the movement.
Queen Barb criticises their music as not being real as she lists just just "bleeps and bloops". In the Trolls World Tour: The Junior Novelization their vocals were described as computer-like when they sang, making them sound cold and mechanical. They seem to have massive Ravesresembling the Pop Trolls love of partying. They are seen in teasers getting incredibly excited over King Trollex dropping a new track.

Though Trollex bravely stood alone against Barb, he surrendered quickly to avoid further damage to Techno Reef and the Vibe that his people spent years making. The Techno Trolls use LEDs and have a more digital age level of technology, making them one of the more advance cultures. Some fish are seen voicing Trollex's "One more time! The Techno Trolls' world is one of living, neon colors against a dark oceanic floor.
They are playful and carefree. They have a similar attitude to life as the Pop Trolls live for peace, love and harmony. They are adapted for life underwater and have fins instead of feet allowing them to swim very quickly. It is shown in concept art that out of water Trollex floats in the air. Members were seen able to blow bubbles shaped like hearts. Techno Trolls seem to be completely passive and when the Rock Trolls came made no attempt to fight back.
The ancestors of the Trolls create 6 Strings based on 6 genres of music, the "Techno Trolls" based on their name held the string of " Techno ". This lead to the Techno Trolls retrieving their String and like the rest of the Tribes isolating themselves.
Members of the tribe were rounded up and taken to Volcano Rock City where Barb intended to convert them all to Rock Zombies.This is a list of electronic music genresconsisting of genres of electronic musicprimarily created with electronic musical instruments or electronic music technology. A distinction has been made between sound produced using electromechanical means and that produced using electronic technology.
