Honestly, it's going to take some trial and error to find the right ones for you.

There's plenty cheap but decent options so that if you lose yours on a somewhat consistent basis, it won't cost too much. It might happen as you get used to carrying them with you. A lot of people do Keys, I do my wallet but YMMV.

Three Popular options: Etymotic 20 DownBeats & Earasers I used US Amazon to show examples.

The Earasers are the Pricey option, but from my understanding, they offer the best Clarity. No case either, so you'll need to look for one. There's a fully "licensed" (meaning they'll fit) case for an extra 10$.

Etymotic 20's are what I use. Again, no case but I use a cheap key-chain pill case. Sounds good to my ears.

DownBeats are the most popular option I've seen around. They're too small for my ear canals, but they work for most. Come with a case, which is nice. Nice silicon and a friend who owns a pair usually forgets they're in.

All of these might work, or none of them. You just kind of have to try them out and see what works for you. Best of luck!

Alright, here's my current list of supplements which I take like 1 or 2 hours before I start rolling:

  • 2 pills of 120 mg Magnesium glycinate^1

  • 1 pill of 100 mg Na-R-ALA^2

  • 2 pills of 500 mg Acetyl L-carnitine

  • 1 pill of 500 mg Quercetin, 1000 mg Vitamin C, and 100 mg Citrus Bioflavonoid Complex; all in one pill

  • 2 pills of 400 IU Vitamin E, 50 µg Selenium; all in one pill^3

  • 2 pills of 200 mg Ubiquinone (also known as CoQ10)^3

  • 1 pill of 500 mg Nicotinamide (also known as Vitamin B3)

  • 1 multivitamin pill^4

  • Final note: Ginger is supposed to be pretty good for you prior to rolling, so drinking some fresh ginger tea in the day preceding the party isn't a bad idea.

    ^1 A lot of Magnesium pills out there are Magnesium oxide which has shit bioavailability, get Magnesium glycinate or citrate or one of the other recommended forms.

    ^2 ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid) may be more budget-friendly than Na-R-ALA, so alternatively you can take 200 mg of ALA.

    ^3 Vitamin E and Ubiquinone (aka CoQ10) are best taken like 6 hours before rolling. Sometimes I remember, sometimes I don't. Otherwise just take them together with the rest.

    ^4 Not really as important as the rest but it can't hurt to provide your body with a bunch of vitamins and minerals before dancing all night long.


    Before I go to sleep after the party, I take 1mg of melatonin and a multivitamin pill.

    24 hours after rolling, I take the following supplements every day for like a week:

  • 1 pill of 100 mg 5-HTP

  • 1 pill of 350 mg EGCG

Don't know if you will find things like that

But i know this book :
Main problem, it's in french. But this guy is a musicology teacher paris, and actually wrote about techno during his studies.
(PS I'm seeing him tomorrow, he's doing a conference about this )

I know other books that talk about techno :
Laurent Garnier, well his name itself is enough, this book is worth reading. Buuuuuuuuuuuut. Again in French ...

I also know Modulations: A History of Electronic Music
This one exists in english ... But well, good luck to find it
It's more easy to find in ... french : ) It was recently translated and re-edited
But there's a documentary, it's on youtube, or somewhere on the internet

to finish, i found this
didn't took time to check the references though

hope it helps

Based on what you've got listed there, you might also like


Rhythm & Sound


If you're a reader, it's well worth finding a copy of Dan Sicko's Techno Rebels. That will give you loads of hints and cross references to help you find the techno you really love.

Hey Bjeaurn,

I'm a struggling techno producer myself as well. The main source of learning will, I guess, always be already existing music. Listen carefully and try to understand what is going on in the tracks you listen to. How many instruments do you hear? What effects are there used when and where?

I cannot listen to any music without figuring out what is going on.

Also I'm reading these books at the moment.

It's a really great help, you learn so much from it.

Also /r/edmproduction is a place you need to go.

And it's obviously important to just make music as much as you can. It's not something you are gifted to just do. You will have to put a lot of time in it.

Unless you already read it, I can recommend the book Altered States. It's a brilliant read about how it all took off.

If anyone is interested, here's a link for Der Klang der Familie... auf Deutsch. I've never read it, but I saw the book mentioned in this thread a lot, and as a native English speaker who studied German, I'm always looking for stuff to keep me fresh ;) Will be purchasing soon.

u/PeterMertes · 2 pointsr/Techno

If this is what you're interested in check out [Klang Der Familie] ( which is specifically about the relationship between Berlin, the fall of the wall and techno. Not very academic but great primary material.

Also, [Tobias Rapp's Lost and Sound: Berlin, Techno und der Easyjetset] ( is about the period just after techno became the sound of Berlin and the city blew up (because of cheap flights and techno-tourism). There's an English translation out there somewhere.

This book!

It is the best book I've read that goes into the history between Detroit and Berlin and their impact on techno as a whole.

I reckon this is a pretty good compilation for anyone who's into any form of dance music:

I've taken my mum to a couple of concerts. You may want to get her some decent earplugs so she can hear the music without getting deafened. Something like these that dampen the sound without killing the high end. Local music shops should have similar.

Without knowing the club at all, I don't see why you'd have any trouble as long as she's a paying customer.

u/Phisherman10 · 3 pointsr/Techno

Read this definitely. Bio on the start of German Techno and some of the Early pioneers from Detroit being booked in European clubs for the first time.

u/thunderdickbag · 1 pointr/Techno

I got these a while ago and was very happy with them. They offer decent protection without distorting the sound too much. They're a whole lot better than nothing.

Eventually I decided to upgrade to custom molded ones, which was a significant upgrade in both comfort and how little the audio gets distorted. It costs quite a bit, but I have absolutely no regrets.

u/Audiaux · 2 pointsr/Techno

He got fucked over by the border in 1995. Also, acid wasn't the reason he was banned from the states, although he did have quite a few copies of Sheet One in his car. Imagine having to test every single tab for LSD lol.
