Richie Hawtin came up in the Detroit techno scene during the '90s and built his reputation on minimalist dance music. It's not for everyone, but those who follow any of Hawtin's numerous aliases do so with impassioned vigilance. Hawtin is a regular winner of international DJing awards and has a devout following in Europe.

Andy Stott is known for deep, brooding techno that's shrouded in fuzzy tones. Hailing from Manchester in the U.K., the producer has released music under his own name and as Andrea for almost a decade. His latest album, Luxury Problems, is dark, textural and balanced with haunting, elegant vocals.

Brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence grew up on the outskirts of London, and got their start in the U.K. garage scene under the name Disclosure. One of their most popular remixes — of "Running" by U.K. pop newcomer Jessie Ware — gained support from BBC radio DJs like Annie Mac, and secured their status as one of the most exciting teams to hit the club circuit in years.

It's a history-making hurricane that, alas, will not be soon forgotten.
