I didn't care much for Tie$to's Parade of the Athletes album :|
And while we're on the topic of Tie$to just incase anybody cares, he's got a 2005 remix package of Adagio For Strings coming out in a few months with the likes of Phynn, DJ Danjo & Rob Styles, and Fred Baker doing the remixing.

what kind of techno do you listen to or recomend

Well, sure, EDM (or whatever) is fine.
I've always been a fan of Future Sound of London, though their actual genre (be it electronica, techno, or so on) is unknown to me (goddamn complex semantics). A few remixes of Sarah Brightman songs struck my fancy as well (Eden in particular). Moby and other mainstream folks have been known to strike a chord in my ear or tug at the heartstrings. Oh, Infected Mushroom has always rubbed me the right way as well.
Regardless, I'm not that big of a fan, prefering real instruments over digital ones.

Wobbuffetking's right. Instantly calling anything produced electronically "techno" can be pretty insulting to an EDM fan. Simple Plan isn't punk, Korn isn't metal, and, quite frankly, the Chemical Brothers don't produce techno (and to take it a little further for you "trance" enthusiasts, Tiesto and Armin van Buuren aren't really trance; eurodance is a more befitting description of their sound). For a better representation of real techno, Jeff Mills and, as briefly mentioned earlier, D.A.V.E. The Drummer are a couple good examples. For a better clarification of the various genres, this guide can provide some help, despite the genre bashing.
That aside, I honestly haven't been able to keep up with the current electronic releases since last May and am thus pretty disassociated from the scene. Since then I've dived into the early trance sound (I.E., the stuff that was actually hypnotic) and '95 - '97 era Goa trance. Though hardly current, here are some of the songs I'm currently digging:
Pan & Trex - Iceman On The Beach
Union Jack - Red Herring
Art of Trance - Kaleidoscope
Art of Trance - Deeper Than Deep
Hallucinogen - Angelic Particles
Hallucinogen - LSD
Doof - Let's Turn On
Kode IV - Near To The Divine (Official Doof Remix)
Mansiola - Vicious Circle
Soluna - Dancing Spirit (Fairy Tale Mix)
Man With No Name - Teleport
Razor's Edge - Exquisite Sin (Exquisite Dream Mix)
