It's sometimes very hard to find ... but try to get DJ Domenick Capello Live @ Exit. I think there's a total of 11 tracks.
If you're using napster just try "domenick capello"

trancecontrol and ghost in the machine aren't bad... that's all i can think of right now...
04-20-2001, 03:00 PM
Those are my favorites
More Ambient check out BTW (Blue Tonic World)
ICE9 and I both like Orbital too.

I love Mix Mag Live Vol. 2

heh..techno i dont think any1z called it that in a while. sounds so discoy. anywayz if you into club and house peep digweed,pvd,oakenfold,armin,tiesto and all dem pplz but you should really look into something else. the 'techno' scene is kinda gettin played out.( but thats just me, so dont go sayin dat trance is the best)

paul van dyke is also another good dj.
dj keoki is a pesonal favorite dj.
dj liquid is pretty good chill trance...

Personally I don't think Oakenfold is all that, just people don't realize what better stuff is out there. If anybody wants to check out some tight songs/mixes, check out http://www.digitallyimported.com . They have the #1 winamp radio station, and once u listen, u'll understand why ;)
Tiesto is good, Ferry Corsten, DJ Doboy, Blank and Jones just to name a few...

Okay, first I naturally have to self-promote, so check out my first mix, as hapoo mentioned (thanks, hapoo!). Here's a link:
Aside from that, it depends on what you like. I'll break it down by genre:
Cyber and progressive trance:
Paul Van Dyk
Mars and Mystre
DJ Tiesto/Ferry Corsten/System F (all the same person)
Sasha and Digweed (only some of their stuff)
Deep House, Funky House, just plain House:
other Sasha and Digweed
Danny Tenaglia (I love Tenalgia, Tuvi, saw him in NYC a few years ago. Blew my mind.)
Bad Boy Bill
UK Hard House/Hard NRG:
Tony De Vit
Superfast Oz (the greatest DJ on the planet)
Happy Hardcore (which I can't stand):
Hardcore (some evil sh!t, sort of the speed metal of electronica):
Ron D. Core
Okay, if that doesn't give you enough of a list, you need help. And just to respond to some of the other stuff people said, I think Oakenfold is no better than average, and techno is not what you think. :) When people in the scene refer to techno, they mean either Detroit techno (like Juan Atkins and Derrick May) or German techno (John Selway). Real techno is hard, tribal, and really f'ing cool at 5:00 in the morning. In my opinion, anyway. If you have trouble finding anything you want, let me know and I'll let you download some of the 80 or so mixes I've got.

I haven't listened to much electronic music yet. I still haven't acquired the taste for pure hardcore beats. Maybe if I were taking drugs....But for now, my preference still tends to lean towards the more mainstream ("poppish" dare I say) electronic music.
for example, I recently liked Crystal Method's 'Keep Hope Alive.' I thought it was pretty dope. Another song I remember is Rob D's "Clubbed to Death" from the Matrix Soundtrack.
I also liked this stuff called "Goa." I thought it was really good stuff. When I listeded to Ice-9's stuff it reminded me of Goa.
I hope I didn't make a fool out of myself. Ice-9, did I make any sense or do I have no clue whatsoever?

Sasha's GU:Live in Ibiza is such a great set of cds!!!
The Tranceport series are really good.
Ooh, Seb Fontaine's Prototype 2 is great too
If u can find a cd called Trance Trippin', damn that is one great cd!!! 20-some trax!
Aphrodite and LTJ Bukem are the only jungle/drumsnbass that I listen to.
If u want that discoy/house style that they play oh so much at those trendy, commercialized LA raves, then i would suggest the Dance Nation series. (Or Armand Van Helden or DJ Dan)
Does anyone have a DJ Mystik cd? (yea, i know, asian raving, but i have yet to find anyone w/ an actual DJ Mystik cd)
04-22-2001, 08:05 PM
DJ Tiesto Energy 2000 is pretty good
If you listen to the techno radio stations at http://www.winamp.com, you can hear some really good stuff.
04-22-2001, 08:10 PM
does anyone listen to jungle in here?...cause jungle is really good...you guys should check it out.
04-23-2001, 12:02 AM
Good lord, I forgot jungle and drum n' bass. Sorry, roboo7.
I'm not a big fan, but there's a wide range of stuff out there. Some of the big ones:
Local Boyz (SF):
Rinse and Flux
Slim n' Tofu
Havok and the Intalekt MCs
Hope that's enough. Anyway, there are always more DJs. It's basically subjective - I love Superfast Oz, but a lot of people aren't into hard bass lines and sparse melodies. So just keep looking until you find somebody you like, and ask about stuff like that person's. It's a lot easier to recommend stuff if you've got something to start from.
ucbstan, I can see where you're coming from. Most people don't talk about goa these days, the genre kind of got absorbed into NRG (Tinrib/OD404) and Psy-Trance (Juno Reactor/Astral Projection), but I can see how you might call my stuff goa. Oh, and I used to like Crystal Method, but I'm far too jaded at this point. :D Gotta keep it underground. If my parents have heard of it, it's too mainstream. (Hell, if my roommates have heard of it, it's too mainstream)

first off... the euphoria mixes are good....
darude is getting real big
atb has been big
keioki is only ok in my oppinion...fi you wanna hear something interesting try the bombfunk mcs... not quite techno but still awesome
04-23-2001, 01:28 PM
oh i just remembered..if you really wanna check stuff out go to winamps site and look at all the streaming techno they got...you can find alot of good stuff in it and the names and artists are there along with the tracks...
04-23-2001, 02:38 PM
heheh...didn't check the posts until after the weekend! Thanks for all the help!
04-24-2001, 12:45 AM
since i've been getting into trance and drum 'n bass lately here's what i suggest, i've been listening to paul oakenfold and paul van dyke,
what i suggest you do is go to http://www.tranceaddict.com
