I've been listening to some Utah Saints, 808 State, The Shamen, Digital Boy, EON, Front 242.

The sound of early 90's Techno is just plain in your face awesome.. Melodic and they don't all sound the same(all REVERBYYYY)..

Anyone listen or remember these cool awesome TECHNO/TEchno POP bands?

I only recently heard Dopplereffekt (GGesamtkunstwerk, Calabi Yau Space) and i found it great stuff. Also love to listen to some classic acid techno, like Asys, D.A.V.E. the drummer or Emmanual Top among others.

Oh yes. Front 242 are awesome, especially from 1993 onwards. Although not really techno.
But I still listen to a lot of my favourites from back then, techno, trance, ambient, breakbeat/rave etc.
Some favourites: Ramirez, CJ Bolland, Sven Vath, most everything on the Harthouse label, also R&S records, EyeQ records, Joey Beltram,
Hardfloor, Altern 8, Speedy J, Future Sound Of London, Phuture, Plastikman, Pete Namlook, the list just goes on and on... :-)

Those were the days.

yeah, big fan of 808 state, jeff mills, sven vath and all that good stuff. enjoy a lot of the modern more clinical techno too, but that oldskool sound is still very uplifting.
And oh, Hardfloor! so delicious..

A friend of mine reacquainted me with The Grid and their release Evolver - I had a lot of fun with their noise, especially with their blend of electronic and hillbilly in *Swampthing :D

None of the ones you mentioned are techno really. This is old school techno:

Yay! Brings back memories!!
I remember being 16 years, first time in Amsterdam, finding a record store and listening to many many vinyls before deciding to go with this guy.

The very good example tune you shared makes me think of one other very good techno group of the 90s called Underground Resistance:

 

 

Argh, now I'm nostalgic of this good old fuckin (techno) times...
