Tozzi's IMO one of the kings of this style of atmospheric dub techno. He recently released his 3rd Deep Blue LP, and the mixed version is up for free! Really fits with how I picture "deep blue" in musical form.

There are hardly any melodies in this mix and no breakdowns but I find this set oddly trancelike. Blazej is one of my go-to's for more energetic hypnotic stuff.

If I was only allowed to listen to one techno set for the rest of my life, I'd probably choose this one. Some very creative multi-deck mixing in here that you may not notice until you hear the original tunes. The last tune in particular, Rohr Sha - Coda, is one of my all time favorites (listen to it in the context of the mix rather than looking it up, it really hits something special)

Massive 3 hour live set from Ness - spans a lot of different styles of atmospheric techno. Quite the journey.

Bit of self promo but I made an hour mix for a label showcase mix competition a bit back of Hypnus Records, probably my favorite hypno label (maybe The Gods Planet?)
Those opening 2 tracks from ness are sick. Techno my ass.

I am new to Dub Techno, but I really like the tracks posted here. So I searched a bit myself and found out that the trilogy „1 2 3“ by Pole is said to be a masterpiece in this genre.

Lol fair point, Ness especially gets trancey. The ID at 1 hour in or I threw in my yearmix, heard it in an Adam Pits set first of all places.

I'd say dub spans a wide range of styles, these are IMO a very abstract form of dub and minimal which can be a bit less noob-friendly. If you want another certified dub classic, check out Porter Ricks - Biokinetics from 1996. The first track, Port Gentil, is my favorite and I think the most well-regarded one.


Ofc, the thread has a lot of great places to start as well! Though I think the focus is more on atmospheric and hypnotic techno rather than just solely "dub."

Apparently, the mixed version of this CD is in a completely different order, it is K4, K1, K3; K6, K5, K2, K7. My personal favorite is K1. I'd say that the album does indeed live up to its name if you catch my drift ;)
