Also, Cybotron is a big omission.


Isn't that just another alias of Juan Atkins?

Yeah, Cybotron is one of Atkins' guises.

Well, Cybotron was a duo of which Atkins was half -- the other half being Richard Davis. Cybotron's debut LP, Enter (later re-issued as Clear), is arguably the most significant thing Atkins has ever done. Personally, I'd list Atkins' solo material and Cybotron together, like this: Juan Atkins (a.k.a. Model 500, Infiniti) / Cybotron.

As for the American scene (particularly Detroit), I think this order is reasonable:

Derrick May
Kevin Saunderson / Inner City
Juan Atkins / Cybotron
Richie Hawtin
Carl Craig
Underground Resistance
Joey Beltram
Robert Hood
Jeff Mills
Eddie Flashin' Fowlkes
Drexciya
Josh Wink
Kenny Larkin
Blake Baxter
Stacey Pullen
The Advent


And then the Europeans and Brits who took their cues from Detroit:

Basic Channel
Laurent Garnier
Dave Clarke
Luke Slater
C. J. Bolland
WestBam
As One
Dave Angel


What do you think about these rankings, Avery?

more stuff

Dj Irene
Ron D Core
Kid Unkown
2 Bad Mice
Anticapella
Utah Saints
Channel X
Praga Khan
Ottorongo
Digital Orgasm
I.S.H
Manufacture (kinda industrial idk)

I wanted to ad The Shamen but they were really more house but it gets tricky cause bands like The Shamen or The KLF don't walk that fine genre line.They were if nothing else huge influence on the whole scene. They were the "gateway drug" of early Electronic music.


Man this list could be huge

Yeah, this list could be a bit tricky since techno music is so intrinsically connected to house (and trance, and hardcore, etc.). I think we'd have to establish some specific parameters here, to maybe exclude artists that aren't primarily regarded as techno -- even though they may have produced some straight-up techno. This would avoid the list getting too convoluted. And if that's the route we take, artists like The Shamen and The KLF probably wouldn't qualify, as they're closer to house (specifically acid house).

But since this is Avery's list, I'll leave that up to him. I probably will, however, start a house music list at some point.
