Dub techno was born with such a defined aesthetic that many early examples sounded like they were from the same artists. Some of them actually were. In fact, you’ll see a few artists represented under different names on this very list. Some of the biggest fans of dub techno are the ones who want to keep it pure, holding a very narrow range of sound as the platonic ideal, accepting little variation and dismissing anything that comes later. They hold up the few original masterpieces as paragons of the sound and dismiss anyone who came along in the following decades.

Building Memories Without You’ is like sinking into quicksand while tied up with cotton wool. At some point in the early ‘00s, dub techno dropped drastically in popularity. That’s not to say people stopped churning the stuff out, but the ideas had begun to stagnate, and many artists had simply moved onto greener pastures. DeepChord’s Rod Modell stuck to his guns however, and together with Steve Hitchell pieced together one of the genre’s most acclaimed full-lengths, The Coldest Season. There wasn’t much new on offer, but the duo honed the now well-worn sound and made it sound better (and somehow fresher) than it had done in years.
Once Rushton and Atkins set techno apart with the Techno! compilation, the music took off on its own course, no longer parallel to the Windy City's progeny. And as the 1980s came to a close, the difference between techno and house music became increasingly pronounced, with techno's instrumentation growing more and more adventurous.
