The Love Thieves

The Love Thieves

by Depeche Mode

I remember the first time I listened to ULTRA. Fans already had BOAG, so when we first heard the album, people probably first thought one of two things upon hearing this one: "DM without Alan is definitely different," or "holy crap, Dave sounds amazing." I was the latter (believe it or not).

Okay, yeah, but Hard Wired has such amazing production. Check: the doofy little synth line at ~00:20, both of the basslines (bouncy one and big deep rumble), random little samples woven into the percussion...

The City Sleeps

The City Sleeps

by Trauma

Definitely one of my favorite obscure early '90s electronic projects, and a Girls Under Glass side-project to boot. A little Kraftwerk, a little Hacker-era Clock DVA, some Tangerine Dream, and maybe a little Gary Numan, too. Here's a track from the first album (the far better second one being scarce on youtube, sadly).

Dream Aid

Dream Aid

by Haujobb

One of the things that makes Haujobb great is that they have a techno acts understanding of tension and release. The break at the halfway point seems like it's going to explode when the beat comes back, but...not quite. Instead that synth line just keeps percolating, teasing...when will it blow up? Ah, here come the vocals again and...pop.
