The stuff has indeed stood the test of time better, probably because of its more minimalist nature. Chris Liebling could play some of that stuff and few would notice that it's ten years old.

Any other must-haves not mentioned above?

most of the Recycle or Die titles offer interesting variations on ambient/trance. haven't heard all of them, but Ralf Hildenbeutel's Looking Beyond and Dominic Woosey's Straylight are worth seeking out. the Baked Beans discs are also kinda cool.

I found the Pulsations EP on youtube the other day. It is such a moody and brilliant piece of work, all the way through - the tracks are thematically linked and appear to have been written in quick succession. Revisiting it after many years, I was pleased that it had lost none of its magic.

I have to say Harthouse is a classic label for their Hardfloor, Spicelab/Oliver Lieb, and Alter Ego releases alone. They also released some neat early stuff by folks like Koxbox and Susumu Yokota, and I have a fond spot for the Sven Väth and Stevie B-Zet collab called Astral Pilot too. A lot of their stuff probably sounds dated now, because it's harder and faster than the style of techno that's been popular in the recent years, but it's not the sort of cheesy 90s rave revivalists prefer either. But if you can get past that, there's plenty of gems in their catalogue.
