Whether you’re into Detroit, electro, dub, industrial or the more melodic strains of techno, it is of no consequence here. We’ve corralled the best names in techno this year for you to choose your favourite.
This list isn’t quite as long as both our best house DJ/producer polls; however, there are still plenty of names to whet the most sparse and Germanic of musical appetites.
It’s all very simple: pick your fave, hit the vote button and you're done, but choose wisely as you have but one chance to make your mark.
The MusicRadar Best in music tech awards 2017 are brought to you in association with Softube - Tools for the Audio Professional.
