I rather liked it, but it sounded like other things of the time? I don't know if I'm misjudging the year or something, but there's quite a bit of electro from around the same time which...ah I don't know, it's still good though.

That maybe the case but it was a year earlier (1984) than the Chris & Cosey track I was responding to (1985)!
And isn't Electro proto-techno itself and with there being quite a lot around in '84 then the C&C track fits perfectly in the timeline.

I saw a 1984 track mentioned just the other day as proto-techno - Chris & Cosey - Dancing Ghosts

How about Soft Cell - A Man Could Get Lost: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IzQQdJQWLXs ? (1982)

Nestled in between an album full of Satanic chanting is this by Igor Wakhevitch from 1973.  Could be a Basic Channel track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNcTePruv3Y

And not really techno at all, but a goofy idiot-savant synth-pop experiment from 1971 by a former Swedish popstar called Hans Edler who'd probably never even heard of Delia Derbyshire: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DbSTeY8Zeg

That's fucking brilliant! No way is that from 1973; it's like Basic Channel meets Plastikman!

Pierre Henry has been mentioned but for this part of Orphee Ballet, pt 2 is very techno in vibe.

OK, its the late 80s/1990, but Joel Vandroogenbroeck (from Brainticket fame) is hardly associated with any form of techno - but he gets some proto-stuff in his Digital Project album

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5V9e8vDE0tQ

and the 1990 Data Pulse album

If this isn't a full on RAVE BANGER then i don't know what is. Gyorgy Ligeti composed in the early 50s by all accounts.

I've seen Miles Davis' 'Rated X' described as proto drum 'n' bass.

Always thought this 1977 cut by a French folkster called Emmanuelle Parrenin was the most icy cool proto-trip-hop/downtempo thing...especially from a bloody folk singer. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1dwaFOF8FFo

There's also This Heat's "24 Track Loop" if you're looking for proto drum'n'bass:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDluEia22oA

It's literally what the title suggests; a dub mix of a 2 bar tape loop on a 24 track tape machine.
