T.Y.M.E. Portal TYME Warp... L3's 1996 In Rewind

Some of the most interesting Techno that rocked my world this year came from these labels: Sativae, ABsense, Chain Reaction, Final Frontier, Crapshoot, Primate, Sonic Groove, Fuel, Clashback, and Scandinavia.

Hmm, but I do need more than slammin' techno to feed my musical hunger....so here ya go with a whirlwind tour of other delectable electronic beatz:

FreakBeat! ala Fatboy Slim and 6 Pack(Woo! Amazing!), The Advent re-mixes of New Order's "Everything's Gone Green", Electroliner's "Loose Caboose Dubs" 'Crazy Train', the Dirty House and Concrete labels, Skint, LionRock! The rise of Underground Progressive such as 'Tin Tin Out Land', City of Angels, etc...........OOH! Lounge Music and Martini Bars (um, hold the cigars though, yuk.), MotorBass - Pansoul!!! And, lastly, the thrill of being able to go into a club and hear Underworld's sublime beat pounding paeon to inebriation, "Born Slippy"!

The Latin Flavor remains, note the Basement Jaxx release "Sleazy Cheaks" on Atlantic Jaxx and folks still love it...it's a primal thing, along with Tribal, influences that are a large component of rhythmic dance music. A sense of humor is definately noted also! Heck, even Happy Hardcore is rising in popularity....are we ready to smile again and have fun?!
