On the topic of "drummy", what I found interesting was that in the beatport interview with Adam Beyer (Called "Adam Beyer's favorite tracks" or something, on youtube), Adam said that "tribal" is coming back in techno, as evidenced by Steve Lawler's upcoming drumcode release, along with some other top tracks out now. I haven't a clue what he's talking about on account of not being on beatport or out at techno events or downloading techno sets in the last couple of months...but is that true?
From the clips on youtube, his Cielo set sounded incredibly funky and groovy, and if that's the sound he is talking about, then I will be sure to catch him next time he's here. (Next October, probably!)
When he played last week, there was definately some tribal influenced drums in some of the tracks.
