This list of good minimal techno DJs and artists let’s you see who minimal electronic music fans think are the best in minimal techno. While minimal techno’s stripped down and understated sound started in Detroit, it is often associated with Germany. Richie Hawtin is a classic example of the genre, but is he the top minimal techno DJ? 

This list of the top minimal techno DJs in the world includes all musicians who have released songs that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Minimal techno groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all minimal techno bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest minimal techno DJs of all time, since the most famous minimal techno DJs ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best minimal techno music. 

This list ranges from Joel Thomas Zimmerman to Felix da Housecat, and more. Vote for the best DJs on the list to see them rise to the top. Make sure to give electronic artists you dig (like Orbital or Richie Hawtin) a vote.

The list includes all new minimal techno DJs, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of minimal techno, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself how to get into minimal techno music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good minimal techno bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent minimal techno DJs.

This list answers the questions "who are the best minimal techno DJs of all time?" and "who is the greatest minimal techno musician ever?"

Whether you’re a the biggest minimal techno fan ever or just a casual listener, please vote for the best mainstream or underground minimal techno DJs - not just the most popular acts that you’ve heard of.
