Dunno how well it fits here, but early 90s housey trance is my thing, I practically grew up with that shit:

This was an utter classic back then:

As well as this one:
I think a lot of this stuff has aged much better than cheesy UK hardcore from the same era; "Sacred Cycles", for example, still sounds sublime.

Then there's Air Liquide, of course - my favourite 90s electronic act of them all:
This shit still sounds majestic!

Air Liquide seems to be right up there with PWOG for that weird Euro rave techno feel. Stuff where I'm not sure if its IDM or trance or what exactly.

Yeah, between 1992 and 1995 AL released stuff ranging from banging acid techno to cosmic trance to weird breakbeat excursions (like the track that sample Cypress Hill) to straight beatless ambient, sometimes on the same record. I'd recommend acquiring pretty much anything they released in that period, it's all good. Or if you want just one record, The Increased Difficulty Of Concentration comp is a good overall look to to their sound; it's neatly divided between a dance and a non-dance disc. In the late 90s they went electro though, IMO their post-'95 material is decent but mostly forgettable.
