i'm up for listening to any good techno, new or old. i only really know about older stuff though. have been stuck in a production bubble for a couple of years and haven't bought any records in a while :/.
that mike huckaby track is nothing like the aril brikha track in all honesty mate.. not sure where you got that from. sure it's got a chord sound.. but that's about it. it's also a very recent release... not old
recent release or not..its nothing new ,sounds totally 90´s..it starts as a basic channel refference and turns into the brikah groove.. not very good when your record sounds like other tracks.. that means you sound like other people.....It strongly refferences the brikah track.. dont you hear it behind that track? the feel? "it sings in the background".. same groove and even the arrangement seems to have the original in mind.. just without any special treat to the sound design.. probably sample based ..
intentionally or not, the huckaby track dont qualifies as genuine techno track. Beside the lack of an own new riff or sound... techno is syntheziser music.. thats a big part of it.. Even on tracks that are 100% done ion a sampler you will see that most of the sounds originated from a synth.. modulation is big part of techno that keep the otherwise too repetitive phrases alive..
Thats part of the genre as the wobble is part of dubstep..
a real techno track in the original sense is allways touching some new ground, .. has an identity ..is an icon of itself.. is a statement.
everything else are just tools and bridges.
