Wow, you're TOTALLY ON THE CUTTING EDGE DUDE!
I feel exactly like Paradox. That track doesn't move at all. It's okay to have energy, and repetitiveness... but .. come one, you have to have some hook, something... that hooks you - either interesting hook, or interesting sounds. That track offers neither.

Who cares lets just keep it to the real.
Actually allot of techno was just that and still is the same note playing over over and over again..........listen to most of the classic stuff from back in the day by Robert Hood..it was a one note chord being pitched, that is all.
Very simple stuff and yes repetetive techno is a very repetetive genre and that is fact.
Techno is very repetitive... but then you should specify that this thread is about Minimal Techno
a la PlastikMan or Robert Hood... there's a big difference.
Is this thread about Techno, or about Minimal Techno?
