    so is this all because you have a new found love of techno or you want to be different.... or do you love it because its no one else really listens to it.?

    i love it because it's great music, but yet not mainstream.
    kinda like ska music, not alot of people listen to it, but it's still good stuff.

    and i want to hear some songs that i haven't already heard a million times, you know what i mean?

    Try this band out called Papadosio.
    Some of their songs aren't really that techno-ish, but they are really good.

    What kind of "techno" are you into? Drum and Bass? 2-Step? Ambient? I can give you a whole slew of groups to listen to depending on what you like. Here are my recent listens regarding electronic music:

    Amon Tobin
    Aphex Twin
    Kraftwerk
    LCD Soundsystem
    Underworld
    Girl Talk

    Also, I make my own music as well. You should listen to it and tell me what you think.

    Orbital

    Daft Punk are more electronica than techno :), but they are a good group none the less :D

    now, your after techno tracks/artists? ok here we go...also if you like techno there is a good chance that you will like trance.



    first of all look at buying these albums:

    Diva X Mechina Vol 4
    Code Speed anime trance best
    High Speed Trance


    here are also some good artists to look at :

    Paul Van Dyk
    Gouryella
    paul oakenfold
    Overseer ( some techno)
    Thrill Seekers
    Yoji Biomehanika
    Polartraxx
    pendulum
    Andy Hunter ( i'm not sure what to call this one.. its got a bit of trance/Techno i guess)



    "Where do i get some music ?" i hear you say... right here

    www.tranceaddict.com

    tranceaddict has alot... ALOT of tracks. a good 24hours worth without downloading them all.


    DJ Trinity: http://trance-mix.com/php/index.php

    that is a very good artist, DJ trinity. there are alot of sets there that might suit you .

    I'm mainly into metal

    However, the absolute perfect techno album is:

    The Worlds Greatest Hardcore
    by DJ Force

    Techno...

    Techno really isn't my style, but I know alot of cool ravers who dig it...

    a few good groups they like are...

    Prodigy
    Lords of Acid
    Crystal Method

    I heard some crazy techno made with megaman music B4 it was OK...
