3. The Ghostly International iPhone and Macbook Decals
Once upon a time a handful off Apple products and a pair of skinny jeans was all that you required to demonstrate your cutting edge, uber sheik-ness.

Never fear though, because once you cover up that outdated Apple icon with these slick Ghostly International decals, you’re status will once again be assured. “What sort of Computer is that you ask?” “Why it’s my GhostBook Pro of course”

Your friends will look upon you with awe when you produce your Carl Cox Cigarette lighter at your next BBQ and their amazement will turn to euphoria when you casually flip the top off your beer with the built in bottle opener.

5. The UR Hoodie & Worker Jacket
The UR Hoodie has long been standard garb for the modern techno warrior, but if you’re looking for a more authentic Detroit look, then there is no going past the Underground Resistance workers jacket.
6. Plastikman Coffee Mug & M_nus Sake Set
Monday mornings after a big weekend of techno clubbing can be hard, but they will be a little easier once you’ve knocked back a strong black from your Plastikman Coffee Mug. And when the weekend does finally roll around again, your next dinner party will be a hit when you produce the official M_nus Sake set. Word of warning with the Sake set though, you will have to look closely to find the M-nus logo, as the branding is; well minimal.
8. Roland TR808 Shoulder Bag
What do you get the techno fan who has everything, well something to put it all in of course and what could be more practical than an 808 Shoulder Bag.
