Top 15 Techno & Melodic Techno Tracks
15. Moonwalk – Galatic
We’re starting with one of the latest songs of 2018, so it’s still pretty recent. Moonwalk’s Galactic is one to remember for 2019. A great opener of this list.
14. Adriatique – Voices From The Dawn
Steady delivering duo Adriatique created one of their biggest hits with “Voices From The Dawn”. This rhythmic track maintains a calm pace, but has lots of energy.

12. Energy 52 – ‘Cafe Del Mar’ (Tale Of Us Renaissance Remix)
Who doesn’t know the original of this track? Tale of Us did an amazing job, remixing this track into a Techno-vibe. But it doesn’t ruin to the greatness of the original.
11. Maceo Plex – Mutant Robotics
Maceo Plex already played this track a couple of times in his live sets. It’s so uplifting with dark vocals, building an amazing tension.
10. Like Yellow – Space Funk
Like Yellow created this track. Starting with a techno vibe, the melody adds, whereafter the beat drops.
9. Matador – Juniper
Okay, we must be fair, this track was actually made end of 2017. But it really got momentum in 2018, we also discovered it then. With a few short strings Matador creates this amazing vibe track.
8. ANNA – Hidden Beauties
The year 2018 really started in January with the great track Hidden Beauties of ANNA. With the low “TIME” vocal in this track, this track builds on in the climax.
7. Patrice Bäumel – The Hatchet
While usually having more melodic sounds, Patrice Baümel this times creates a darker sound. With a hypnotic percussion and swinging noises, this track has an amazing vibe.
6. Adana Twins – Jupiter
The Adana Twins are famous for their darker rolling techno tunes. With a nice high pad, this tune brings in an amazing amount of energy.
5. HOSH & Tim Engelhardt – Blinded
This track has some mysterious elements and then has a sudden break with some light-sharp synth.
4. Aether – Raven
Aether describes themselves as a “sound research” project. An exploration of Ambient and Nature sounds combined with soft deep Techno and sharp synths.
3. Several Definitions & Marc DePuls – Sharks
Marc DePulse has created some beautiful darker tracks, so did Several Definitions. How nice is it that they mixed up an created this track honouring the ocean’s apex predator.
2. Remake – Blade Runner (Maceo Plex Renaissance Remix)
This track was already played often during Maceo’s sets. For example, during DGTL Amsterdam 2018, this song was played and rocked the festival. The track contains several nice twists. From techno to a more melodic vibe.
1. Enrico Sangiuliano – Cosmic Ratio
This is song is from the album Biomorph, an amazing tension-building track that hits the dance floor easily. Enrico’s tracks Symbiosis and New Dawn are our other favourites from this album.
