It`s a shame two-step, hard house and breakbeat have stolen the lime light and left the daddy of dance music out in the cold. Fortunately, techno`s recent anonymity hasn`t put Ueberschall and Time+Space off producing this banging sample CD. Techno Identity is a two-CD collection, with audio on the first disc and Akai format samples on the second.
The samples are mainly drum and percussion loops. As you would expect from a techno CD, the synth riffs and effects are rhythmic rather than melodic, and when mixed with the drum loops they sound really hard and tight. All samples are 130, 135, 138 or 140bpm.
The main drum loops are great, with lots of tough bottom end, and are excellent for fattening up your tunes. You`ll also find something useful in the many percussion loops Techno Identity offers; there are dozens of them, with plenty of variation. There is also a pretty generous dollop of bass loops to fill out your lower frequencies. Elsewhere on the CD you get a range of patterns and loops for the mid-to-high end: filtered loops, pads, fx loops, hard and soft synth patterns… a ton of techno tools. For the techno terrorist this sample CD is an awesome stash of dancefloor weaponry.”
