Nearly the same with me. Especially Red2 had a really big impact on my taste andd listening behaviour.

When I really got into electronic music and partying in 1993 I started off rediscovering lots of classic chicago & detroit stuff like Phuture's "Acid Trax" or Saunderson's "Rock to the beat" on different compilations which laid down quite a nice foundation for discovering the new...

I have hooked up a sample of the track I was talking about. Its cut out of the set I was talking about. I included the track before it just so you cant get a feel for the way it was dropped in.

It was so different from anything I had heard before. So quirky and unique. I often visualize music in my head and when I heard this it provoked something really interesting in my mind.

The track begins to worm its way in at about 2:00. Drops full at 2:23. Clip is about 4:20 long. Thats right... 420. Purely accidental. Don't start thinking the internet is giving you hidden messages...

Electronic music in general: Juno Reactor - Pistolero.

This turned me into a goa/psytrance junkie for a few years.

The stuff that started to really pique my interest in Techno/Minimal was T. Raumschmiere - Zartbitter

The dense droney sounds, was like being wrapped in a smoggy blanket of warmth and comfort (yet still being a bit depressing at the same time).

Got me really curious to "whats this techno all about?" - and got me introduced to labels like Sender Records, Areal, etc.

I remember discovering the sender records website and it was a gold mine. So many tracks 'hit the spot' for the type of sounds I was wanting to hear.

After spending 2+ years listening to super fast / squelchy / dense / aggressive psytrance - used to be in the "The harder / faster and squelchier the better mindset, Sender Records stuff was rather soothing to the ears :)

Plastikman - Closer / Consumed where the two albums that really made me fall in love with the more minimal-minimal side of techno.

I'm gonna look up what happened to t. Raumschimeire . He had some great stuff, but then went a bit funny (to my ears), a shouty pop music album I think.

I saw him dj once and it was halfway between a moshpit and a dancefloor. Really intense and unique.
